Bottom line

Born from the collaboration of long-time Reebok partner Swizz Beatz, the Reebok DMX Series 2000 combines the brand’s trademark comfort with contemporary design.

Good to know

Reestablishing the glorious fame of the heavenly DMX cushioning was one of the preliminary agendas of the Reebok DMX Series 2000 low rise trainers. The science behind the cloud-like cushioning of the Dynamic Motion X was transferring airflow from the heel to the forefoot and vice versa. Wrapping it up with a new form of textile upper is just overdoing it.

The Reebok DMX Series 2000 in unisex sizes starting from 3.5 to 13. Women should follow the general rule of going down one and a half sizes from the men’s standard to obtain the adequate fit. Lastly, bungee system of laces mimics the imagery and sensation of tugging down running silhouettes.

With style approved by many of the reviewers, this Swizz Beatz incarnation proves promising when it comes to an eccentric niche for fashion. Oozing with a running-vibe from top to bottom, these lightweight sneakers enlists itself as a viable option for lifestyle wear.

Both men and women can sport these with their own type of joggers and skinny jeans, but the former is the better option due to its sporty framework. Women can also partner these with leggings, Capri pants, and shorts, to say the least. Men can be imaginative and copy the iconic music producer’s style by dressing up in thick Sherpa-like jackets with street art prints and white pants that would perfectly complement the sneaker’s colorway.

Overlays strapped across the Reebok DMX Series 2000 resemble that of the Furylites which can also be traced from OG Instapump Furys. The DMX cushioning, of course, is another takeaway when looked at afar.

In the middle of the 90s, a running iteration was released earning the name “the most comfortable running shoe of all time” which was a rather presumptuous yet most appropriate description at the time. The Reebok DMX Run 10 was first witnessed in 1997 and had settled in the sneaker stockists and vintage ‘heads ever since.

Enter Swizz Beats, Alicia Keys’ other half, which revolutionized the way people look at the DMX cushioning. The Swizz Beatz x Disruptive Kind x Reebok DMX Run 10 takes everything the DMX is good at and remodels it into something appropriate to current times. The said sneaker was released at the dawn of 2018 but was earlier teased the previous year.

Carrying the trio’s legacy was the Reebok DMX Series 2000, a refurbished version of the limited edition kick released in mid-2018. The newer and sleeker take on the DMX was closer to the ground than its predecessor and is also available in numerous colorways including one in Collegiate Navy.

  • Midsole cushioning also includes an IMEVA material aside from the DMX.
  • Pull tabs found on the heel and tongue allow easy on and off.
  • The sneaker retails for $135.
