Updates to Reebok Flexile

  • The Reebok Flexile is crafted for agile workouts which involve lots of quick cuts and multi-directional movements. As the name implies, the shoe is made flexible to accommodate natural foot bending. The trainer can also be sported for regular everyday wear and light jogging.

Reebok Flexile size and fit

The Reebok Flexile is offered in both men’s and women’s options and tends to run true to size. In terms of width, the shoe is meant to accommodate regular foot dimensions. The available width profiles are D - Medium for men and B - Medium for women.  

Outsole

The injection-molded EVA (IMEVA) midsole of the Flexile also serves as its outsole to keep the weight of the trainer to the minimum. However, its underside features triangle lugs with zig-zagged cuts for enhanced traction. It also employs geometrical flex grooves to promote natural foot movements.

There are rubber pods placed in the most high-wear areas of the outsole — the heel and the forefoot. These pods not only increase the shoe’s longevity but also add grip on gym floors.

Midsole

The Reebok Flexile makes use of the IMEVA foam midsole which is known for its lightweight and flexible nature. This white full-length component cushions the impact upon each step and jump to keep the wearer’s feet and legs protected.

There is a 13-mm difference in height between the forefoot and the heel. It makes the footwear a bit more running-friendly as it adds extra padding to the heel section. However, such construction compromises stability during weightlifting exercises.

Upper

The trainer sports a low-cut design to allow the ankle to have a full range of motion. The shoe’s ankle collar and the tongue are padded to protect the skin from chafing and irritation.

The entire upper is covered in an engineered mesh fabric. It features a combination of larger and smaller ventilation pores to give a balance of breathability and support.

The mesh is kept safe from fraying by synthetic overlays around the eyelets, at the toes, and back at the heel. That’s because these parts of the shoe are most subject to abrasion.

Two additional synthetic panels are placed at both sides of the forefoot. They reach the first pair of eyelets to interconnect with the lacing system and provide lateral stability during side-to-side movements.

Additional Info

  • The Flexile can be personalized on the official Reebok website. Customers can place any letters and numbers on the medial edge of the collar. Please note that the final price for customized shoes is going to change.
