The Reebok InstaPump Fury surely rings a bell to any sneaker fanatic as it is one of Reebok’s most iconic and remarkable shoe models ever released. It was designed by Steven Smith and released officially in 1994 featuring the brand’s revolutionary Pump technology sans the traditional lace closure. The Pump technology provides a customized, lockdown fit through an internal inflation system.
In 2015, Reebok introduced the Reebok Furylite as its second attempt to a slimmed down version of the classic InstaPump Fury next to the Reebok InstaPump Fury Superlite, which released in 2010 but was not as successful.
The Reebok Furylite is slimmer, lighter, and got away with the bulky Pump feature. It features a synthetic mesh upper, bungee type lacing system, and a 3D Ultralite outsole. Since then, it has been released in different colorways and versions, including the Chukka and the Woven versions.
A year after its release, the Furylite was again introduced in a version with updated features such as the textural jacquard pattern on the upper and white leather accents at the toe and heel counter through the Furylite "JF" pack. The pack includes three colorways (beige, blue, and black/white) at $90 per pair.
The Reebok Furylite JF is a fashion-forward low-top sneaker that comes in three colors with a textured jacquard-patterned upper. It is the kind of sneakers that perfectly mixes casual, sporty, and stylish with comfort in mind.
A running-inspired low-top sneaker, the Furylite JF has a construction that allows flexible movement of the feet without sacrificing support and comfort. Unlike most sneakers, this shoe features a unique bungee lacing system supported by the pull tabs on the heel and tongue for quick and easy on and off wear.
The Furylite JF comes in both men’s and women’s sizes. Men’s sizes range from 4 to 14 in D medium width while the women’s are from 5 to 11.
This Reebok Furylite variation stands out from the other versions for one obvious reason – its textile upper bears a gradient or faded jacquard effect. Like the original Furylite, the Reebok Furylite JF also features a bootie-like collar construction with pull tabs on the tongue and heel for easy on/off. It also has the unique bungee lacing system in round laces.
- The Reebok Furylite JF has a full-length 3D Ultralite midsole for lightweight cushioning.
- It also has an abrasion-resistant rubber outsole.
- Signature Reebok brandings are embroidered on the tongue and embossed on the heel.
