Offered in women’s sizes 5-11, the shoe, with its slip-on style and nubuck/textile upper is built to mold snugly to the wearer’s feet without compromising support. Ankle mobility can also be expected from its low-top profile. Its narrow construction, however, fits average sized feet. Thus, female consumers with slightly wide feet may have to size up.

Its unusual design is not for everyone. Those who do like it, though, are captivated by its bold style and futuristic look that can enhance any sneaker queens’ sporty and casual outfit, pants, skirts, sweats, and leggings included.

Already distinguished for its unique design, the low-top Reebok Furylite Slip On FBT is also recognized for its 3D Ultralite midsole and removable Ortholite insoles. The former has been known for its enhanced responsiveness and durability apart from its lightweight cushioning. The latter has been renowned for its breathability and its antimicrobial property.

The InstaPump Fury, for over two decades, has been recognized for its peculiar look that is genuinely attention-grabbing. Some perceived its silhouette cool and modern while others were vexed with its unconventional appearance. Nonetheless, all noticed and that’s what mattered the most.

It is, however, noteworthy that the development of the Pump Fury’s design started in the year 1992, two years before its actual release. The geniuses behind it were shoe designer Steven Smith and VP of Advanced Concepts Paul Litchfield. The shoe’s design inspiration was also taken from an unimaginable source, a ski cleat.

After its release, sneakerheads had mixed reactions to its radical design. In spite of the clash of opinions, the demand for the InstaPump Fury grew, especially in Asia. Soon enough, its presence became known in Europe as well as in North America.

Years passed and the Reebok InstaPump Fury continues to be a sought-after model. In fact, a variety of iterations which adopted its DNA have been launched, the Furylite included. A slimmed-down rendition of the original, this edition was released to the public in 2015. A couple of months after, a slip-on version made of neoprene/suede surfaced which was aptly dubbed as the Furylite Slip-On.

The brand, however, did not stop there. Other variations soon emerged including the low-top Reebok Furylite Slip On FBT. A part of the Fewer Better Things pack, this model was revamped with a nubuck/textile upper and updated with accents like the woven detailing and the rose-gold toned plate.

  • Airflow is enhanced with the aid of the perforations on the front area of the shoe.
  • Its mesh lining increases its overall comfort level.
  • “Reebok” wordmark is printed on the front and debossed on the undersole for branding.
