Reebok Floatride Run Nite size and fit
The Nite version of the Reebok Floatride Run has a standard shoe length. It is a road running shoe that is strategically designed for runners with a neutral mechanism. Because of its knit upper construction, flexibility and breathability are achieved in the foot chamber. The Reebok Floatride Run Nite is available in standard medium width for both men’s and women’s version.
The shoe's outsole utilizes the waffle-like or rippled pattern high-abrasion rubber. This pattern in the Reebok Floatride Run Nite is essential in delivering the right amount of traction in a wide variety of paved surfaces. Having a good grip is extremely important in improving the runner's performance. With this design, it allows the platform to have a more consistent ground contact. Ground contact time is measured by three critical factors, namely, leg stiffness, power, and biomechanics. When these three factors are achieved, it results in a smoother heel-to-toe transition. It aims to boost the durability of the shoe as well.
The Floatride Foam technology is utilized in the midsole of the shoe. With the consistent cell structure of the Reebok Floatride Run Nite, the pressure-set foam offers the right combination of responsiveness and cushioning. Proper cushioning helps boost comfort. It also buffers the force on the runner's body that occur during jumping, walking, standing, and running. The foam technology’s primary focus is to create a more responsive and softer cushioning. As a result, runners will experience a more comfortable feeling with every step.
Balancing and centering the foot throughout the gait cycle are offered by the supportive foam rim. This component of the shoe stabilizes every launch and landing.
The Ultra Knit upper is integrated into the Reebok Floatride Run Nite. This technology’s primary goal is to deliver an amount of flexibility, support, and breathability that is exceptional. These zones are strategically designed to promote a more breathable and adaptive comfort. This component of the shoe is essential in keeping the foot environment fresher and drier, especially on long-distance runs.
Along with the Ultra Knit construction is the integration of the 3D Heel Cradle. This material is responsible for securing and locking the heel in place while limiting possibilities of irritation.
Utilized in the Reebok Floatride Run Nite is the low-cut construction. Delivering freedom of motion is the primary focus of its design. It is focused on providing quick heel-to-toe transitions as well.
Reflective details of the shoe add visibility for the safety of the runner. This is essential in ensuring that they can still be seen even in low light conditions.
