Updates to Reebok RealFlex Scream 4.0
- The Reebok Realflex Scream 4.0 gets a significant reboot in the upper. Gone is the massive overlay that is directly connected to the laces. The laces now go through traditional eyelets that really enhance the shoe’s ability to secure and wrap the foot. By doing away with the massive overlay, the Scream 4.0 is also a tad lighter than the past version.
- The silhouette featuring an oversized Reebok logo is removed and is now replaced by a standard-sized overlay showing numerous squares forming a neat pattern. Besides the change in design, this overlay now acts as a support in providing a really nice midfoot snug.
- An injected heel counter is the last change in the Realflex Scream 4.0. The injected heel counter adds a bit of structure to a very flexible upper and really helps hold the heel in place.
Reebok RealFlex Scream 4.0 size and fit
The fit of the Reebok Scream 4.0 is very snug from the heel to the forefoot. This is the type of fit that plays into the hands of runners who have narrow or standard measurements in their foot. The toe box is narrow as well, but with enough room for the toes to splay. Width availabilities are the standard D for the men’s and B for the women’s. The sizing runs true in this shoe. Sizes are between 6 to 15 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
The Reebok Realflex Scream 4.0 is a very basic shoe that really gets its prominence from the outsole technology called the Realflex. This is a technology that uses 76 independently-tuned and multi-directional nodes that Reebok calls as sensors. Every node is designed for a special purpose. Hence, the shape, height, thickness, and flexibility of the nodes are engineered to allow the runner an almost barefoot feel without doing away with the necessary protection and support against man-made surfaces.
Reebok also links the nodes together near the heel and lateral side of the shoe. The concept behind the grouping is to provide better support and stability for the runner. Just below the metatarsals, there are 9 pods that are linked together as well. These pods naturally support the forefoot and add a bit of propulsion with every step. The rubber in the outsole extends near the forefoot to form a very sturdy toe cap for protection against abrasion.
The upper is fairly normal with the use of the standard mesh and synthetic overlay. Breathability is made possible by the mesh while the overlay provides both medial and lateral support in the midfoot. A molded PU sockliner and adequately padded tongue and collar give the shoe superb comfort.
