Bottom line

Gone for over twenty years, the split-soled silhouettes, which Reebok invented, have now made their second coming. While paying homage to the 1990s, the Reebok Sole Fury Floatride’s bolder design looks ahead into the future.

Underfoot, its iconic chunky split-sole tooling is integrated with a Floatride Foam midsole, a ventilated midfoot bridge, and a stabilizing propulsion plate. Complemented with asymmetrical lacing, its perforated all-leather upper has 360-degree breathability. Showcasing unparalleled comfort, style, and edge, this brilliant split-sole model has proven itself worthy of its slightly expensive price.

Good to know

This Reebok Sole Fury iteration is offered in unisex sizing identified as men’s sizes, ranging from 3 to 13. Women should subtract 1.5 from their regular size. For example, a women’s 8 is 6.5 in unisex sizing. This low-top shoe runs on an asymmetrical lacing system, which provides a more locked-in feel on feet as well as unhindered ankle mobility.

Coming from the 1990s heritage, this beefy silhouette which is part of the Reebok Classics collection was at first made for that decade’s casual baggy style. Loose-fitting jeans, shorts, and trousers would look just as good as they once have on this kind of shoe.

Though retro-inspired, the Reebok Sole Fury Floatride is also built with exquisite sophistication. Its sleekness fits the modern look, which is often minimalistic. Skinny jeans and sweatpants which taper down at the ankles accentuate the futuristic-looking split-sole silhouette. This model is available in Black and Sand/White/Black colorways.

The Reebok Sole Fury Floatride is a standout in both design and function. Looking as chunky, or chunkier, than its predecessors, this model is equipped with modern updates. One of the most significant changes among the new Reebok shoes is the Floatride Foam midsole, which this model has. The Floatride Foam is 50% lighter than the standard often-used EVA foam, and it delivers a more bouncy and comfortable experience.

Throughout the 1990s, a little family of split soles came into the world. It all started in 1992, with the release of the Reebok Pump Graphite, which was the first one to flaunt this split outsole tooling. As strange as it looked, the whole idea worked. The split soles proved to be more flexible; they also provided greater comfort and stability while having less weight. In 1994, the Instapump Fury was released. The Opus, or OP., followed four years later but got shelved. It made a return after twenty years, along with the new split-soled models, which seemed to have evolved.

Among these new breeds, the Sole Fury stood out. It was released in 2018, and it helped define the modern identity of the split soles. Its newest iteration, the Reebok Sole Fury Floatride, added the heralded midsole cushioning to its range of features. Reebok’s patented Floatride Foam technology is a breakthrough, which the Sole Fury line welcomes with pride.

  • The heel and the tongue each has a pull tab for a quicker and easier on-and-offs.
  • One side of the shoe is fully perforated, which further improves breathability.
