Who should buy the Reebok HIIT

The qualities of a trainer that high-intensity interval training requires are all present on the Reebok HIIT. The shoe is equipped with innovations and ingenious design to ascertain that it has the impact absorption, stability for dynamic movements, proper lockdown, and grippy underside which HIIT enthusiasts need to perform efficiently. It is a solid option if:

  • A situation arises that requires you to get a new pair and you need a shoe that offers comfort without the need for a break-in period. 
  • Twists and turns have been a challenge lately and you need a trainer that helps facilitate those maneuvers with less trouble. 
  • You regard aesthetics as much as you value purpose and functionality.

The Reebok HIIT's superior grip

The Reebok HIIT uses two sheets of rubber with different treads on either side of the outsole. This provides wearers with varying levels of grip suited to the dynamic movements involved in interval training. There are also grooves under the medial side of the forefoot, which helps make twists and turns less brutal on the knees. At the heel, the flared-out construction of the rubber aids in steadiness.

Controlled lateral manuevers

A deep furrow runs the middle of the outsole. It divides the bottom into two hemispheres, which allows it to facilitate controlled side-to-side movements. At the heel, the flared-out construction of the rubber aids in steadiness. The rubber used on the HIIT also offers slip resistance on sweat-covered floors. 

Reebok HIIT Outsole Middle and Rear

Abrasion-resistant rubber

Rubber wraps up in some sections of the midsole. They protect against abrasion and supplies traction in critical areas like the toes for burpees, or the sides of the midfoot for lunges.

Reebok HIIT Outsole Side

Responsive cushioning

The midsole of the Reebok HIIT is crafted from EVA foam. This layer is engineered to be reactive to pressure. Energy absorbed upon impact is immediately used to propel the foot, giving wearers a bouncy underfoot experience.

Reebok HIIT Midsole Rear

Lateral stability

The foam midsole wraps up in some areas of the upper. This design aims to cup the foot, steadying it during side-to-side movements.

Sock-like fit

Inside the Reebok HIIT is an internal sleeve. It provides a close fit that allows the shoe to move with the foot, no power lost.

They form a supportive wrap that integrates with the lacing system. When the shoestrings are pulled tightly, the overlay gets taut, enhancing the lateral support.
