The Reebok InstaPump Fury Tech is a men’s shoe with half sizes available. Some users say that it’s quite narrow on the feet so going up half a size would be a safer choice. Nonetheless, users can enjoy its Pump P50 feature which permits a customized fit.
Despite having a style that raises eyebrows to most people, it cannot be denied that much like the InstaPump Fury, the Tech pack not only boasts the design but its substance as well. Released in 2015, it retains the laceless feature, an innovation attempted by most brands.
The more pronounced Pump tech only highlights the futuristic style of this shoe. Styling this can be fairly easy. Take cues from hip-hop artist Wale who paired the Solar Orange colorway with a plain black shirt and fitted jeans.
This more advanced sneaker is packed with style and technology. Its upper is composed of Dyneema Ripstop, a waterproof fabric that is stronger and more tear-resistant. It’s also composed of Graphlite carbon foot foil bridge and Kevlar underlays which are strong materials but lightweight. Its laceless feature combined with the renowned Pump inflation system creates no-fuss wear but customized fit.
This sneaker has Hexalite sole unit, a cushioning technology that is more absorbent and tougher than EVA, the usual foam used on sneakers. Hexalite has a honeycomb design which helps dissipate shock. Its outsole, on the other hand, is composed of an abrasion-resistant rubber that makes the shoe more durable. All of these advancements are coated in a low-cut silhouette for more flexibility and freedom.
The InstaPump Fury Tech is one of the many variations that spurted from Reebok’s InstaPump Fury series. Released in 1994, the collection release created a lot of buzz because of its futuristic design and its advanced innovations. Inspired by its partnership with American Drama “Above the Rim,” designer Steven Smith created a divergent and more stylized sneaker. The InstaPump Fury took the 5-year old Pump technology, making it more prominent and combined it with new technologies.
Truly, it became such an iconic innovation that it bagged several collaborations and achievements including a spot in the Design Museum of London. In 2014, Reebok Instapump Fury celebrated its 20th anniversary which launched 33 collaborative colorways. Thanks to the collaborations with Asia’s most famous brand names (atmos, BAPE, BEAMS, mita sneakers, UNITED ARROWS, MILK Magazine and Invincible), the sneaker was placed on the map. Celebrities in Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong made appearances with these futuristic shoes. A dedicated pack for popular anime like Gundam and Ghost in the Shell was also made possible.
- It uses an external technology, the Pump P50, which not only makes the design sleek but promotes customized fit.
