Bottom line

The Reebok Pump Plus Night was considered a success by most of those who have tried it. They liked this neutral road shoe’s cool design, its agreeable Pump tech, its comfortable performance and its efficacy on the roads. On the other hand, a person wanted the inflatable fit system to have a firmer hold.


  • The Reebok Pump Plus Night is a road shoe that’s designed for those who have neutral pronation. It has a façade that’s consistent with the designs of today’s casual footwear, but what makes it unique is its cleatie-like sleeve which evokes a sock-like fit.
  • The Pump technology is a proprietary Reebok feature that involves a set of inflatable units that line the sides and the instep of this model. Pressing a button dutifully ‘pumps’ air into these pockets, therefore giving a more secure fit.
  • The midsole unit of the Reebok Pump Plus Night makes use of an injection-molded foam to offer a responsive ride. Durable rubber in the outsole gives protection from wear and tear.

The Reebok Pump Plus Night is true-to-size. It follows the usual choices of people when it comes to length. It has a foot-shaped last that accommodates the natural curvature of the human foot. A widened forefoot permits natural toe-splay.

CRTek is a component that’s based on carbon rubber. It covers the critical areas of the forefoot and heel. Just like the outsole materials of the Launch 6, it shields against abrasion while providing traction over the surfaces.

Circular nodes are patterned all over the outsole. The purpose of these add-ons is to heighten cushioning, flexibility and traction.

Separating the nodes from one another are flex grooves. These small trenches make the platform more flexible, thereby encouraging the bending capacity of the foot.

A single-density IMEVA or injection molded ethylene vinyl acetate foam is used for the midsole unit of the Reebok Pump Plus Night. Its goal is to deliver a comfortable and responsive underfoot experience that’s also safe against impact shock.

A traditional sock liner adds more cushioning. Runners can remove or replace it with their inserts or orthotics.

The upper unit of the Reebok Pump Plus Night features a mesh cover that has an open construction. It allows air to enter the foot-chamber, providing a cool and dry environment for the runner. It’s not stiff; hence it doesn’t hinder the movement capacity of the foot.

Lace-loops are added to the sides of the mesh, and elastic laces are fashioned into them. These laces don’t need to be tied; the wearer just needs to pull on them to get a tighter fit.

Instead of a regular shoe-collar and tongue unit, this model has a cleatie-interior and a one-piece entry point. The material that’s utilized for this segment is smooth and seamless, thus evoking a sock-like coverage.

Surrounding the instep and the sides of the upper are inflatable air-bags. They’re connected to a button-like Pump system that delivers air into these chambers. When filled, these units cause the fit to feel snugger and more secure. After use, the air can be released via an exit port right below the Pump button.

A reflective coating makes the Pump Plus Night more visible in low-light conditions. This design renders night running a safe activity.
