What is it for? Reebok built the Freestyle Motion Lo for dance and studio classes, and bodyweight workouts. Its ‘80s style reminds you of the time when aerobics was hot, and everyone seemed to be wearing neon tights with bodysuits. Now all you need is some thick socks and sweatbands for your head and wrists, and you’re ready to go.

This pair of Reebok training shoes is fitted with breathable elements that prevent the foot from getting too hot and sweaty. Its upper is made to fit like a sock for a reliable foothold. Meanwhile, it is also comfortable to wear for workouts because of its impact-dulling foam midsole and soft foam insert. Its outsole, though grippy, has a unique feature that makes pirouettes look flawless.

Traction. A high-abrasion rubber covers the bottom of the Reebok Freestyle Motion Lo. The hexagonal tread with discs offers grip on smooth studio floors.

Movement. Because a grippy outsole can make it hard for wearers to do quick turns, Reebok placed a Turnzone under the ball area. This smooth disc allows wearers to twist and turn without torquing their knees, making this footgear is suited for dance classes.

Shock absorption. The Freestyle Motion Lo employs a full-length foam for cushioning. It has a thick heel that allows it to support the weight of the wearer and the impact of each step. It is shaped to cup the heel, keeping it steady during quick transitions.

Comfort. Inside this workout shoe is the OrthoLite insole. It is a layer of foam that follows the shape of the foot to deliver maximum coverage for all-day comfort. It is also a breathable element that keeps the feet fresh during rigorous workouts.

Cozy wrap. Mesh fabric is used for the upper of the Reebok Freestyle Motion Lo. It is soft and breathable, which provides wearers a comfortable foot cover during workouts.

Lockdown. This footgear sports a bootie construction. It allows wearers to quickly put on and remove them. Meanwhile, if added foothold is needed, this trainer has panels integrated with the lacing system. When the laces are tightened, the cage-like structure enhances the lateral support of the top.
