Who should buy the Reebok Flexagon
While the Reebok Flexagon is available for both men and women, some differences make them suitable for their respective gender. This origami-inspired cross-training footwear is a solid choice if:
- You are into one or more of the following workout routines: CrossFit, HIIT, combat training, Zumba, running, and cycling.
- You are looking for a shoe that observes hygiene by keeping your feet cool and dry during workouts.
- You are after a pair that doesn't only offer outstanding utility but is fashion-forward too.
Abrasion-resistant sole unit
The midsole of the Reebok Flexagon doubles as its outsole. It is made to be hard-wearing to endure the abrasions of working out on various types of indoor and outdoor surfaces. Such high-friction areas as the toes and the heel are reinforced with rubber pods to extend their durability.
The underside is adorned with a tread pattern that promotes traction in different directions. The outsole also features flex grooves at the forefoot, facilitating natural foot flexion. It can be noticed that the flex grooves on the women’s version extend to the arch area for maximized pliability.
The Reebok Flexagon is equipped with the Astroride Flex TR foam. This cushioning technology is engineered to be soft to attenuate shock and flexible to promote movement. It is also made to be durable as it also serves as the outsole.
The upper of this Reebok trainer uses an engineered mesh that adds flexibility to the shoe. The material is also breathable and allows air to cool the foot chamber.
The Reebok Flexagon's lacing system
The trainer is equipped with a traditional lace-up closure that allows users to customize the fit.
One difference between the male and female versions is the stretch straps at the forefoot that integrate with the laces. For the men’s version, the straps are found on the first two eyelets, while the women’s version only has a single band on the first pair of eyelets nearest to the toes. The purpose of these elastic bands is to amplify lateral support and keep the fit snug.
Snug tongue and collar
The foot is kept locked down by the padded tongue and collar. The plushness of these areas not only delivers comfort but also prevents the shoe from accidentally slipping off while in motion.
