Who should buy the Reebok Trail Cruiser

You are likely to appreciate the Trail Cruiser from Reebok if you need a road-to-trail walking shoe for traveling that's not too rugged.

Who should NOT buy the shoe

Given that the Reebok Trail Cruiser is kind of a hybrid between a walking shoe and a trail shoe, it doesn't excel as a durable outdoor shoe. So, if you need a rugged trail-ready shoe, consider the Reebok Nano X2 Adventure or the Ridgerider 6.

Aggressive tread but not very lasting

The rubber outsole features a toothy tread that allows it to grip uneven off-road surfaces. The treading also extends up and around the heel contributing to the shoe's style aspect.

Unfortunately, the lugs wear out faster than expected. A person who has worn the shoe a little over a month reports that the "tread on the heel and the ball of my foot is about 70 percent worn."

Underfoot comfort of the Trail Cruiser

Reebok equipped this pair of trail walking shoes with FuelFoam. This foam technology is flexible for better ground feedback when walking on rocky surfaces. As a wearer describes it, "soft enough to absorb the stress yet not spongy feeling."

Those who have worn the shoe for hours at work are happy with the all-day comfort that it provides. "Able to walk longer walks because of great comfort," says one of the reviewers.

And in case you need to use a pair of custom orthotics, the insole is lightly glued on, so it can be removed easily.

Surprisingly lightweight

Some wearers were quite surprised with how light this Reebok shoe feels on the feet given its substantial sole construction.

Ripstop upper on the Reebok Trail Cruiser

The upper uses ripstop, a very durable material, so you don't have to worry about it ripping because of sharp objects when you trek.

Lace loops are prone to tearing

The shoe's lacing system received quite a lot of complaints from the wearers. They report that the lace loops tend to rip and tear too easily. In the worst case, the seam near the shoelaces "tore within the first hour of walking usage."

The absence of regular lace loops also makes it a bit challenging to tighten up the laces.

Style-wise, it's definitely something else

Many people have commented on the appealing visual design of the Reebok Trail Cruiser calling it "sleek" and "clean." Some also mentioned that they would've bought the shoe in multiple colorways if there were available.

It is also said to pair well with a variety of clothing options and is a compliment magnet.
