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.

- Atop it is the Ortholite sockliner that has been molded to fit the foot’s contours. It serves as supplementary cushioning.

Reebok Hayasu size and fit
The Reebok Hayasu is designed for women. It only comes in the B - Medium width option. The shoe typically runs a size larger, so it is advisable to scale down from one’s usual sizing when ordering. Alternatively, people can also try it in person to get an accurate fit.
Minimal rubber makes up the outsole of the Reebok Hayasu. It offers enough traction without inhibiting the sliding and twisting movements required for dance-cardio workouts.
For easier twirling and twisting, a TurnZone point is strategically placed under the inner ball of the foot. It prevents the knees, ankles, and hips from exerting too much torsion when doing these moves.
The tread is patterned with forefoot flex grooves for natural foot flexion. They give the flexibility that the ball of the foot requires for plyometrics, sprinting, and dancing.
The Reebok Hayasu employs the proprietary 3D Ultralite Technology foam for its midsole. This sole unit is engineered to deliver lightweight and long-lasting cushioning.
Additional cushioning comes in the form of the Ortholite sockliner that cradles the underfoot for plush comfort. It is molded to conform to each nook and cranny of the foot.
The Reebok Hayasu has a mid-cut profile that acts as ankle reinforcement and lateral support. The upper is claimed to be irritation-free due to its seamless neoprene material and a form-fitting bootie construction. It has a reflective print to lend a fashion-forward look to the shoe.
The lacing system consists of a TPU cage with the shoelaces interweaving through it. When tightened, it is meant to deliver medial and lateral support, which prevents the foot from making unnecessary movements.
