Designed for movement and speed, the Reebok Flexagon Energy is made of lightweight and flexible materials that allow the foot to move effortlessly and quickly. The upper uses mesh which is pliable and breathable.

Reebok Flexagon Energy vs Reebok Flexagon

The Energy version of the shoe is built for low-impact exercises, while the original Reebok Flexagon is engineered to support high-impact routines. This determines the construction differences between the two shoes:

- The upper material of the Reebok Flexagon is tightly woven and the sides of the collar sit higher compared to the Flexagon Energy. It helps to provide better ankle support during high-intensity workouts.

- The Flexagon Energy is also missing some key elements in its outsole. It lacks rubber pods at the forefoot and heel sections and deeper flex grooves at the middle, which are all present on the original Flexagon model.

The sole unit of the Reebok Flexagon Energy serves as both the outsole and the midsole. The bottom section has been constructed to be more rigid than the upper part to withstand abrasion. Flex grooves promote natural foot motion for a smooth heel-to-toe transition. The tread pattern on the underside provides traction for multidirectional movements.

Like all workout shoes, the Reebok Flexagon Energy employs a full-length foam midsole. This compound is designed to be soft to cushion impact but instantly bounce back to its original form, ready for the next step.

The Reebok Flexagon Energy is equipped with a mesh upper. This fabric is soft and the netted appearance helps keep the interior aerated. The outside of the collar is covered in tightly woven mesh which helps in providing ankle support.

Synthetic overlays protect the eyestay from premature ripping associated with regular lacing adjustments. An overlay also forms an external heel cup that secures the rearfoot and prevents it from sliding inside the shoe. The lace-up closure provides a way for wearers to adjust the snugness at the midfoot. As for the locked-down feel, the plush tongue and collar help with that.
