Who should buy the Reebok Flexagon 2.0
Continuing the brand's line of everyday workout trainers, the Flexagon 2.0 has the stability and flexibility that both men and women wearers need during workouts. This Reebok pair would appeal to you if:
- You want the convenience of having a do-it-all trainer that performs well in the gym, HIIT, even as an everyday walking companion.
- You are limited in budget but prefer a not-so-expensive shoe that offers quality and style at the same time.
Because this Reebok trainer is primarily designed for gym use, it does not employ a full-length hard-core rubber outsole. It only features two rubber pods, one in the forefoot and the other one in the heel, for added traction and wear-resistance.
This construction also helps in keeping the sole flexible and lightweight. The wavy texture is meant to give traction on gym floors.
Cushioned and stable
The Flexagon 2.0 is equipped with a traditional EVA foam for cushioning. This kind of material is typically used in other training shoes in the same price range. It has a fairly lightweight nature and basic responsiveness to protect the foot from impact throughout the workout.
The foam features outriggers in the heel and forefoot sections to widen the base for added stability. The midsole also slightly extends upwards around the rearfoot to cradle the foot and minimize wobbling.
The Reebok Flexagon 2.0's breathable support
Reebok prioritized breathability in this shoe design. Its toe box and tongue are made of fabric with large ventilation pores. The panels on the sides are also instilled with mesh.
Midfoot lateral support
At the same time, the Flexagon 2.0 keeps the foot secured by the midfoot cage system. It has synthetic zig-zaggy overlays that provide structure and lateral support.
Finally, there is a peculiar addon at the heel. The trainer uses two elastic criss-cross straps instead of a traditional heel cup to support the hindfoot.
The heel apex of the collar has been intentionally oversized. The wearer can hold on to in while putting on the shoe.
