  • The trainer retains the Microweb lacing system. This type of closure uses cables that wrap the sides of the foot to enhance the lateral support of the upper. However, the Microweb structure is now hidden behind the mesh.

The Yourflex Train 9.0 MT uses an exposed midsole for most of its outsole. The compound is durable, flexible, and has lugs that provide traction to the underside. It also features flex grooves that promote natural foot flexion for mobility.

The midfoot and heel sections are lined with carbon rubber to enhance the traction of the outsole. These rubber lugs have the same properties as car tires, which are durable, resilient, and slip-resistant.

The Yourflex Train 9.0 MT employs a full-length midsole. This material is hard-wearing since it also doubles as the outsole and flexible to promote proper foot movement. It soft enough to attenuate shock but does not easily compress.

The Reebok Yourflex Train 9.0 MT uses a combination of different materials such as neoprene, mesh, and synthetic compounds. The neoprene is a synthetic rubber which has stretch capabilities that allows it to conform to the shape of the foot. The mesh fabric keeps the foot chamber well ventilated.

Synthetic overlays are strategically placed in the toe box and the sides of the midfoot. They serve to protect these areas from abrasion and impact during specific activities such as burpees and rope climbs.

The trainer features a Microweb lacing technology. This feature is made of cables that wrap the sides of the midfoot. When the laces are tightened, Microweb becomes taut and results in improved lateral support. The plush tongue evenly spreads the pressure made by the flat laces to keep the instep area comfortable at all times.

At the back, the lightly padded collar prevents blistering on the Achilles, and it also holds the foot down to avoid accidental shoe removal while the user is in motion. A heel counter holds the back of the foot steady to prevent slippage while training.
