Updates to Reebok Hydrorush

  • The Reebok Hrydrorush is a training shoe designed in collaboration with the Watt Brothers.  J.J., T.J., and Derek all play in the National Soccer League. Thus, all three of the brothers undergo the same rigorous and extensive training needed to survive professional soccer.
  • The footgear is designed for versatile training, weightlifting workouts, and agility drills. It is made of materials engineered to endure indoor and outdoor sessions. The upper is constructed using a sandwiched mesh which is breathable and supportive. It is strengthened by a midfoot cage that connects with the lace-up closure for a snug and customized fit.
  • The sole unit uses several components: the ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam midsole, the dual-density liquid foam heel, and the high-abrasion rubber. The first two components aim to reduce the shock felt by the lower extremities to avoid discomfort and injuries to the joints. As for the rubber compound, it protects the midsole from the ground and adds traction to keep the wearer going.

Size and fit

The Rebook Hydrorush caters to the shape and dynamics of men’s feet. It comes in US sizes 7 to 13. It is obtainable only in a D - Medium width profile. 


The underside of the Reebok Hydrorush is lined with the high-abrasion rubber. This durable compound could withstand the wear and tear associated with working out on various types of indoor and outdoor surfaces. It extends to the front of the footwear, assisting in gripping the surface during burpees, sled pushes, and sprints. The material also has a camouflage print that adds a stylish flair to the shoe.

Another feature of the outsole is the multi-surface tread pattern. It enhances traction and durability, allowing the wearer to train inside the gym, on the grass, or on the pavement without losing their footing or the rubber shredding.


The Reebok Hydrorush employs a full-length EVA foam midsole. This cushioning unit is soft, pliable, and durable. It is designed to lessen the impact felt by the lower extremities while also responsive enough to be ready for the next step.

The heel is reinforced with a dual-density liquid foam. This element instantly adapts to the foot’s movements, allowing it to attenuate the shock upon heel strike better. This technology aims to reduce the stress felt by the joints during foot landings.

The trainer is created to be used for various types of activities, but its 11-mm heel-to-toe drop also allows it to perform well during weight training. The heel elevation affords wearers to feel planted on their heels and squat deeper when needed.

This platform construction has also been taken to the newer iteration of the shoe, the Hydrorush II.


Made to be used in various fitness regimens, the engineered sandwich mesh upper of the Reebok Hydrorush keeps the user’s feet well-ventilated. Aside from aerating the inside, the fabric also provides the upper its structure.

The upper is pliable and sports a low-cut design. This construction allows the foot to move unrestrictedly and make quick transitions.

The midfoot has a cage-like structure that offers lateral support. The component integrates with the lacing system, so when the laces are cinched, the panels are drawn closer to the foot, providing support during side-to-side movements. It also wraps around the back, creating a heel clip that keeps the rearfoot steady during dynamic motions.

The tongue and the collar are both lightly padded. The tongue prevents the laces from irritating the wearer’s instep. As for the collar, it keeps the heel locked down and free from irritation.
