My only issue with the Floatride Run Fast is the tongue and its tendency to fold over.
Incredible! To have a sub 7 oz shoe with this much responsive and stable real cushion is a wonder. This is one of those big smile shoes for me. I could easily train daily in them and have.
This is the perfect shoe for those looking for a long distance racing and workouts shoe with a stable but responsive and soft ride. The Reebok Floatride Run Fast is a fantastic shoe that should work for a variety of foot types and needs. I am extremely impressed and look forward to seeing more of this kind of quality from Reebok as they jump head first back into the running game.
The raised sidewalls are an unnecessary stability characteristic for a self-proclaimed neutral racing shoe, that ends up limiting the fit for people with wider arches and adds unnecessary weight.
Updates to Reebok Floatride Run Fast
- The Reebok Floatride Run Fast is a running shoe for neutral pronators who want to experience speedy sessions on the roads. It features materials that don’t have a substantial weight, as well as performance-centric designs to encourage the natural motion of the foot as it goes through the gait cycle.
- The midsole has been designed to keep the foot at the center of the shoe. It makes use of a responsive foam for cushioning, but it also has an EVA sidewall for steadiness. The outsole is composed of a rubber compound that has a pattern that is reminiscent of tire-treads. The job of this material is to provide surface grip.
Reebok Floatride Run Fast size and fit
Just like the original model, the Reebok Floatride Run, this version has a standard sizing. Full and half-sizes grace this model. When it comes to width, the options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The foot-shaped last of this running shoe mimics the regular shape of the human foot.
A rubber compound is used for the outsole unit of the Reebok Floatride Run Fast. This material covers the underside of the foam platform, protecting it from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It is also responsible for traction.
Some textured protrusions pockmark the surface of the outsole. These non-prominent nodes have the visual makeup of vehicle tires. They are responsible for heightening surface grip and encouraging flexibility.
The Floatride Foam is a full-length cushioning material that’s designed to be lightweight. It aims to deliver a soft yet responsive underfoot experience, potentially energizing and enabling the performance of the wearer throughout the running session.
A rim or sidewall made of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) prevents the foot from shifting to the sides, fundamentally stabilizing the in-shoe experience without restricting freedom of movement and natural heel-to-toe transitions.
Ultraknit is a textile that resembles woven cloth. This form-fitting textile has multiple layers and a set of openly knitted sections that encourage ventilation.
Thin strands of synthetic material serving as overlays are printed onto the sides and the back of the Reebok Floatride Run Fast. These seemingly inconsequential add-ons help the lacing system when it comes to providing a secure yet customizable fit.
The padded collar acts as an extra lockdown mechanism that prevents the foot from exiting the interior chamber accidentally.
