Updates to Reebok Sublite Duo Flow

  • Responsible performance over the roads is what the Reebok Sublite Duo Flow has to offer. It’s a lightweight running shoe that’s made to deliver sure protection, support and comfort to the wearer. With an appealing look that’s tuned to the modern runner, this shoe is enjoyable to behold and to experience.
  • A well-ventilated running experience, that is what the Reebok Sublite Duo Flow gives the wearer. A comfortable mesh material serves as the main upper covering, and its open construction allows air to keep the foot cool and dry. Crisscross straps on the middle and rear areas give a snug and secure fit that’s tuned to the adjustments made to the lacing system.
  • A dual-density foam is used for the mid-sole unit of this running shoe. The topmost layer serves as the immediate underfoot platform where the foot is able to relax, while the bottommost part is a denser foam that’s meant to provide protection from impact. Flex grooves are designed on the bottom layer, giving the foam the capability to bend along with the metatarsals.
  • The outsole unit uses the ground-contact mid-sole foam. It’s strong, and is capable of resisting wear and abrasion. The heel and forefoot sections have a durable rubber to provide additional protection, as well as traction over the roads.

Reebok Sublite Duo Flow size and fit

The Reebok Sublite Duo Flow has a standard running shoe length. The men and women’s sizes follow the usual measurements in order to let the runner get the correct choice. The heel, mid-foot and forefoot sections have medium widths, so this shoe is very much capable of providing a snug fit that’s not too tight.


Outsole

The outsole unit uses the denser mid-sole foam to be in contact with the ground. This foam unit is very strong, so it is able to resist the damaging nature of the asphalt. Grooves line this layer; so natural movement of the foot is actually encouraged.

Carbon rubber is placed in critical sections of the heel & forefoot areas where wear and tear are most likely to occur. It is very durable, so it is able to shield these sections responsibly. The rubber also gives traction for a more agreeable surface control.


Midsole

The Sublite Duo is a full-length dual-density foam that offers comfort to the foot, as well as protection from impact. The topmost layer of this foam is softer and springier, giving a plush and assured underfoot experience.

The bottom layer of the Sublite Duo is a more resilient foam that is able to handle the impact when landing the foot on the ground. It is still flexible because flex grooves are designed on the surface that’s exposed to the ground.


Upper

A breathable mesh material makes up the main upper unit of the Reebok Sublite Duo Flow. This durable material allows air to enter the shoe in order to provide a cool and environment in which to rest the foot. It hugs the foot snugly, but never too tight to be uncomfortable.

Crisscross straps on the medial and lateral sides help in wrapping the foot in a customizable fit. They are connected directly to the lacing system, so each adjustment made to the shoelaces warrants a response from these straps.
