Featuring a classic beefy white split midsole and a mesh upper with striking colors, the Reebok Split Fuel, one of Reebok’s casual sneakers, virtually pops out in one’s outfit. Anyone can fuel up their style with these athletic-inspired kicks.

Men can go sporty and easily pair the Reebok Split Fuel with sweatpants and sweatshirts, white tees, or hoodies. Going casual, men can accentuate the sneaker’s bold design by putting on a skinny or regular pair of jeans. Top it off with a plain tee or a black jacket.

When going for that aerobic-ready look, women can dress up the Reebok Split Fuel with joggers, yoga pants, and leggings and finish it up with a tank top or crop top. On the other hand, women can go casual too with the Reebok Split Fuel. For a street-smart vibe, just pair it up with tattered pants or skinny jeans, topped with a denim or leather jacket, a coat, or a turtleneck.

The Reebok Split Fuel Style is available in a small variety of fashionable colorways, such as True Grey / Black / Lime / White, Cool Shadow / Pink / Grey / White, and White/Black/Team Dark Royal/Neon Red.

The Reebok Split Fuel features a durable and synthetic split outsole. The front and back part of the sole work interdependently for a very stable, comfortable step. The sole’s cushioning is enhanced by a TPU stability plate. Under the toe and heel area are carbon rubber rims, which improve traction.

Launched in 1958 by two English brothers, Joe and Jeff Foster, Reebok got its name from a speedy African antelope, the “rhebok.” The name came from a South African dictionary Joe won in a race as a boy.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Reebok made a name in manufacturing spiked pumps, which running and track champions wore. Though still based in Bolton, Lancashire, in England at the time, Reebok exported their products overseas. The brand reached its peak in the 1980s upon entering the North American market, eventually becoming the number 1 premier footwear brand in the continent.

In 1992, Reebok became the inventor of the split outsole design, with the release of the Pump Graphite. The cross-trainer featured the iconic midsole cutaway, which saved weight and bulk all the while enhancing comfort and stability. Within a few years, more models with split outsoles appeared: the Instapump Fury (1994) and the Opus (1998). In 2018, another three models appeared: the Run.r 96 Sock Run.r, the 3D OP. Lite, and lastly the Sole Fury.

In 2019, Reebok introduced the Split Fuel, paying great homage to the brand’s legacy. With the Reebok Split Fuel, the legend of the split-outsole silhouettes lives on.

  • The midsole has a lightweight, durable 3D Ultralite cushioning.
  • The shoe has an EVA sock liner for added comfort.
  • Reebok’s Crosscheck symbol is heat-pressed at the side.
