Who should buy the Reebok CrossFit Lite TR

The Reebok CrossFit Lite TR was created in close cooperation with Mark Bell and Jesse Burdick, the acclaimed powerlifters. The shoe’s silhouette and design are somewhat reminiscent of the Chuck Taylor All-Star. It is a solid choice if:

  • You are after a trainer that provides increased stability when powerlifting.
  • You have a medium to wide foot dimension.

Abrasion-resitant outsole

The Reebok CrossFit Lite TR makes use of a flat rubber outsole to provide a planted stance for lifting exercises, as well as protection against abrasion.

It also features flanges or “stability zones” on the heel and forefoot sections to make the pressing surface fuller while also preventing the foot from rolling over the sides.    

A textured design ensures the gripping capability of the unit. Part of the tread is employed with apertures which are meant to work like suction cups to maximize the contact with the surface.

Shock-absorbent platform

The CrossFit Lite TR features a low-profile midsole with a 4 mm heel-to-toe drop for a grounded underfoot feel which is essential for most CrossFit and lifting activities. Such a low disposition also forms a cradle for the foot, surrounding it with supportive sidewalls.

Inside, a padded foam sock liner adds another layer of cushioning platform. It protects the foot from injuries or discomfort by absorbing the shock created when the foot hits the ground.

Snug upper

The primary upper material of the Reebok CrossFit Lite TR comes in three options: suede, canvas, and leather. Each kind of fabric can offer a snug and supportive fit for the foot.

A toe cap called DuraGrip is found in the toe box area. It guards the front of the trainer against the wear-and-tear of a rigorous training routine.

Ventilated tongue

The tongue is made of air mesh to keep the foot ventilated. It has a loop through which the shoelaces pass. The purpose of such a design is to prevent the tongue from sliding to the sides.

Enhanced ankle support

The high-top silhouette works hand-in-hand with the high lace-up closure to wrap the ankle. This design secures the foot in place and supports the ankle.

At the rear section is an external TPU clip. This structure is meant to hold the heel in place, enhancing steadiness during lifts and squats.
