Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.
Updates to Reebok Guresu 1.0
- The Reebok Guruesu 1.0 is an all-around workout shoe that caters to the unique needs of female training enthusiasts.
- It features a mid-cut bootie construction that aims to support the ankles while at the same time allowing freedom of movement. The neoprene upper sits close to the skin while the lacing system allows the wearer to adjust the fit.

- The rubber outsole is intended for indoor gym use. It has a small disc called a Turnzone under the ball of the foot that makes turning during dance workouts smooth and easy.
Reebok Guresu 1.0 size and fit
The Reebok Guresu 1.0 is only available in women’s sizes and typically runs true to size. The available width is B - Medium.
The Guresu 1.0 utilizes a rubber outsole. This compound is designed to be durable, flexible and capable of protecting the foot from various elements on the ground.
A wavy tread pattern facilitates the multi-directional movements involved in dance and studio workouts. It has a small disk under the ball of the foot called a Turnzone. This structure is smooth and makes turns effortless and quick.
Flex grooves are present in the forefoot area. They are meant to promote proper foot flexion.
The Guresu 1.0 uses the ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam for the midsole. EVA is a type of foam that is lightweight, durable, and resilient. It absorbs shock from impact and disperses that energy to prevent injuries in the lower extremities.
A removable Ortholite sock liner is placed inside the shoe. This breathable material is a combination of polyurethane and recycled rubber. It maintains the freshness of the foot by wicking moisture away. It is also antibacterial which prevents foul odor from developing. It can be removed and replaced with other orthotic insoles if needed.
The midfoot portion of the midsole extends to the upper. This structure delivers support while doing lateral movements.
The Reebok Guresu 1.0 features a mid-cut bootie design. The collar is high enough to support the ankle and not restrict its movements.
The trainer features a lacing system that connects to the medial and lateral panels. Tightening the round laces draws the side panels closer to the foot, giving support during side-to-side movements. The lace-up closure also prevents the foot from accidentally slipping out of the shoe while in motion. Atop the midfoot area is a single-wrap unit that serves to lock down the foot.
Pull tabs are present in both the tongue and the back of the collar. They make it easier for the user to put on the footwear.
Lining the inside is a soft textile. It prevents irritation to the skin and makes the shoe easy to wear and remove.
The shoe features an external heel clip that cups the back of the foot and anchors it to the midsole. This material ensures that the foot is stable during workouts.
