Profile of the Reebok Flexagon

The Reebok Flexagon gets its inspiration from the unique shapes of origami, the Japanese art of folding paper. This cross-training shoe comes in both men's and women's versions. Though both models share the same silhouette, some differences make them suitable for their respective gender.

Outsole

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.

Midsole

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.

Upper

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 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.

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.
