Who should buy the Reebok CrossFit Grace
Being the first Reebok Crossfit designed for female enthusiasts, the shoe is a solid option if:
- You are after a shoe stable for squats, lifts, and has the flexibility during most CrossFit movements.
- You are into rope climbing.
High abrasion outsole
The outsole of the CrossFit Grace is made of a durable, high abrasion rubber. It features a multidirectional tread pattern to ensure traction for various movements.
There are flex grooves in the forefoot section of the sole. They are long, narrow depressions that serve to promote flexion of the foot.
Like most Reebok Crossfit trainers, the shoe employs the RopePro technology on the external midfoot section. It is a textured rubber that protects the shoe during rope climbing.
Shock abosorbent cushioning
The compression-molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (CMEVA) makes up the midsole unit of the CrossFit Grace. It is a lightweight and durable foam that offers cushioning and shock-absorption.
The shoe also has a removable insole that adds a thin layer of cushion. It’s placed right above the main midsole foam.
A no-sew jacquard mesh fabric and polyester make up the upper of the CrossFit Grace. Jacquard is a type of fabric wherein patterns are created by the thread being woven intricately together and not embroidered on the fabric. Polyester is a synthetic resin which, when combined with other fibers, results in a strong material.
This training shoe has a cleatie-like construction. It encompasses the lower part of the leg in a secure embrace. The soft material that’s used for this design prevents skin irritation.
Well-designed lace system
The round laces secure the tongue and foot in place. They cause the upper fabrics to tighten or loosen to suit the preference of the wearer.
Snug ankle section
The shoe has a low-cut design which gives the ankles more freedom to move.
