Size and fit

Reebok Fury Adapt UC is a men’s sneaker which comes with a bungee and toggle quick lacing system. This means there is no need to tie up the stretchy shoelaces as it can be tightened or loosened up according to one’s desired fit by pulling the cord lock. It is looped through a TPU caging system at the midfoot which offers support and stability. Available men’s sizes ranging from 6.5 to 13 US, this sneaker tends to get tight and small. Those with wide feet may need to obtain a half size higher than their normal size.

Reebok Fury Adapt UC Style

The Fury Adapt UC comes with a fresh-looking one-piece cleatie construction with a quick lacing system that allows users to stay active throughout the day. The geometrical design on its synthetic cage at midfoot and the construction of its outsole offer a resemblance to other Fury predecessors.  It draws attention from users who favor unique symmetries on a sneaker.

Notable Features

The low-top Reebok Fury Adapt UC offers a similar kind of comfort projected by former silhouettes under the same lineage with the presence of cushiony Ortholite footbed, responsive Hexalite feature embedded in the heel, and the Graphlite carbon plate under the foot. Unlike earlier versions, the InstaPump Fury and the Furylite, this adaptation has a quick lacing feature that allows wearers the convenience of securing the feet down without having to tie the shoelaces.

Reebok Fury Adapt UC History

After presenting the Furylite, a modified interpretation of the polarizing Reebok sneaker named InstaPump Fury, Reebok creates a revised edition, aptly titled the Reebok Fury Adapt. According to its design author Wayne Russell, who happens to be the one of the persons who drafted the InstaPump Fury, the updated look is made with a slimmer and sleeker frame than the original.

The InstaPump Fury broke new grounds for the brand when this was introduced during the 1994 Winter Olympics both for recreational and serious runners. The InstaPump Fury’s unusual upper design with a hodgepodge of flashy colors, which the brand called Citron, steered public interest and appealed to a particular audience.

Initially, consumers have divided opinions about the shoe. However,  in the coming years, its so-called outrageous lines shaped a better story for Reebok as it attracted revenues for the brand, not necessarily from the running classes but from style-centric groups.

The success of the InstaPump Fury gave way to the introduction of Furylite in 2015, a reformed style which puts the Pump technology aside to bring back the traditional lacing system. This updated version retained the eye-catching elements seen in the earlier Fury. But this time it has a toned down upper construction that blends with an array of casual streetwear.

Designer Russell made things simpler for the users when the Fury Adapt was under conception. It incorporated a cleatie structure and a strong caging system which is paired with a quick lacing feature. The innovative version came in strings of releases in different colorways such as the Fury Adapt UC.
