Updates to Reebok Hexaffect Run 3.0

  • Reebok does a major facelift in the upper of the Hexaffect Run 3.0. The latest model features a new honeycomb mesh upper with bigger holes to take breathability to another level. Runners will enjoy cool and sweat-free runs every time they take the road.
  • The major overlays are replaced by a midfoot cage that features loops where the laces now go through. These loops can be clearly seen as connected to the sole to enhance cinching or for a more secure fit.
  • The tongue is now more padded, which should improve the shoe’s already great comfort while rounded and textured laces take the place of the flat ones of the past version. Reebok guarantees that these laces are more handy when getting the right fit and will not come undone midway into the run.

Reebok Hexaffect Run 3.0 size and fit

The Hexaffect Run 3.0 is a great fit for runners with regular foot width like the past model. It has sufficient space in the heel and forefoot without feeling sloppy while the midfoot is very snug. The standard widths of D for the men’s and B for the women’s are available. The shoe length is true to size. 6 to 13 are the options for the men while the women can choose sizes from 4 to 11.


Outsole

The outsole is made up largely of standard carbon rubber for proven durability. It also features nodes built in hexagonal patterns for enhanced support and flexibility, hence the name Hexaffect. The nodes also do their part in helping in the cushioning and the shock attenuation abilities of the shoe.


Midsole

The Memory Tech foam is the main feature in the midsole. It is primarily designed to handle the cushioning and shock-absorbing features of the Hexaffect Run 3.0.


Upper

The upper is covered in new honeycomb mesh for the large part. It makes the shoe very breathable. A heel pull tab allows easy on and off maneuver. The new rounded laces go through the loops of a new rib cage. This will enhance the personalized fit and security of the foot. A Memory Tech removable insole enhances comfort and can be exchanged for customized orthotics.
