The Reebok Mobius was such a shoe. Both the upper and the soles of the Mobius were anything but a classic basketball design, they were not even sure if this shoe should actually be a basketball shoe.
Reebok gives a new twist to the classic silhouette with this heritage model that takes inspiration from the brand’s greatest basketball shoes. The Mobius celebrates 1996 basketball models with designer, Xavier Jones seeing to every detail of this sneaker.
Among the highlights of this new design are its nubuck upper with leather overlays that reflect the timeless style of the brand. It also sports a Hexalite cushioning and a higher cut that gives it an athletic authenticity.
Cushion. Reebok employs the Hexalite cushioning system on the Mobius. The foam is situated on the heel and the forefoot, providing targeted responsiveness as well as optimum support on the court. It also works to offer impact protection to ease each step. Additionally, the shoe has a removable EVA foam sockliner, which can accomodate orthotics.
Traction. A thick rubber outsole lines the base of this basketball shoe. This high abrasion unit functions as a barrier against rough surfaces. It also offers durable responsiveness on smooth indoor surfaces. Organized perforations as well as contrasting zigzag details help deliver grip and also provide that familiar vintage style.
Length and Width. This unisex Reebok sneaker is available in the standard sizes. It comes in a medium width and is known to fit true to size. With its synthetic and leather upper combination, these effective basketball shoes are expected to offer a form-fitting hug around the foot.
Lockdown. A traditional lace up closure is fitted around the midfoot of the Mobius. The central laces provide a snug and secure fit that stabilizes the feet when at play. These can be adjusted to suit a player’s preference for a more customized fit.
This high top basketball shoe has been equipped with a synthetic nubuck upper with leather overlays. This combination gives a supportive and comfortable wrap that most wearers have come to appreciate. The silhouette extends up to the ankles, providing support and stability that minimizes the chances of foot injuries.
With its high top silhouette and its nostalgic design, the Reebok Mobius brings the 90s style back to the court. It incorporates elements from the Kamikaze, Shaqnosis, Blast, Avenger, and Big Hurt but in a new unique design. The retro contrasting colors will make any player stand out on the court as well as off the court as these sneakers can easily traction as lifestyle shoes suited for everyday wear.
The Reebok Mobius has been released in two colorways.
- White/Collegiate Navy/Red
- Black/White/Snowy Gray
