Good to know
If you’re a fan of the first Flexagon Force, then you’d love the second iteration. These Reebok workouts shoes both have a low-to-the-ground sole unit that makes it easy for the foot to move naturally. Its low profile also puts a person’s center of gravity closer to the ground, which makes for better balance.
The revamped top uses a different type of mesh, which offers more breathability. But the most apparent difference between the two models is the logos. The first version uses the Delta logo while the Flexagon Force 2 features the old-school Reebok Vector.
Some workout shoes, like the Flexagon Force, have midsoles that also function as the outsole. They are made from a type of foam that is hard-wearing, so they don’t easily get destroyed with constant use. Also, this type of construction keeps the weight of the footwear light.
The grooves on the underside serve two purposes: the first is for the smooth heel-to-toe transition, and second, they enhance the grip to the surface. Also, there is a wide strip of carbon rubber under the ball of the foot. It makes this area more durable and grippy.
Shock absorption on the Flexagon Force is delivered by a full-length foam. This compound is designed to not easily compress with pressure to keep the foot supported, especially during weight training. It is also a bit bouncy, so the legs and feet won’t quickly tire during cardio and plyometrics.
Inside is a MemoryTech insole. It conforms to the sole of the foot for maximum coverage and slippage prevention. This foam sockliner also provides long-lasting comfort to the wearer.
A net mesh forms the top of the Reebok Flexagon Force 2. This fabric is lightweight and has pores that allow air to cool down the foot chamber. Hot-melt overlays are added to the quarters. They increase the lateral hold of the upper, especially when the laces are tightened.
Fit adjustments are made possible by the traditional lacing system on the midfoot. The tongue and the collar have light foam lining them, delivering a cozy fit.
At the back, the external heel panel is replaced by a criss-cross structure. This element not only looks cool but also contributes to the heel lockdown.
