  • The Reebok Speedlux 3.0 is a running shoe that’s made for those who have neutral pronation. It is also specific to the flat nature of the asphalt. It makes use of a rubber outsole traction and protection against abrasion. Flex grooves permit the natural bending of the foot as it goes through the gait cycle.
  • A full-length injected foam serves as the cushioning system. Its job is to cushion each foot-strike and enable the toe-off. Additional support is afforded by a sock liner.
  • The upper unit makes use of a mélange mesh, which means that it features more than one type of fiber in its yarn. Such a configuration potentially heightens durability on top of its capacity to bring breathable support.

The Reebok Speedlux 3.0 makes use of standard measurements to provide a sizing scheme that is adherent to the norm, yet it’s always recommended to try out the shoe first to get the most pleasant experience. When it comes to width, the options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

The outsole unit of the Reebok Speedlux 3.0 is comprised of a rubber compound that has the job of covering the rest of the platform. It protects against the debilitating effects of surface exposure and continued use.

Flex grooves in the forefoot and heel permit the natural bending capacity of the foot as it transitions from the heel to the toe during the running session. They also isolate the impact forces to the specific areas that are in contact with the ground.

The midsole unit is made using injection molded ethylene vinyl acetate. This full-length foam offers responsive cushioning and shock attenuation. It also has a flexible nature that follows the motion of the foot.

Extra support is provided by an EVA sock liner. It has a soft top to ensure next-to-skin comfort. It is thin so it won’t hinder the flexibility of the foot.

The mélange mesh has a yarn that is composed of various fibers. Such a construction looks to strengthen the whole fabric while also offering additional benefits such as a soft and flexible coverage.

A traditional lacing system is employed in the Reebok Speedlux 3.0. It uses semi-round shoelaces, a set of fabric eyelets and an anchoring tab that is stitched to the tongue unit. These elements work together to allow the runner the freedom to attain a locked yet customizable fit.

A set of leather overlays covers the front, top, and heel sections of the upper unit. These additional layers are meant to reinforce the structure of the shoe, keeping it stable and intact. They also help the lacing system when it comes to providing security.

The padded tongue and collar are responsible for cushioning the top portions of the wearer’s foot. They also prevent in-shoe wobbling and accidental shoe removals.

A soft fabric lines the interior chamber. It allows the foot to go inside the shoe with ease.

A pull tab is placed on the heel section. Its purpose is to help the wearer in wearing and removing the Reebok Speedlux 3.0.
