Good to know

Reebok’s Instapump Fury Boost features a pull tab at the rear, Pump iconic technology and a Boost responsive cushioning that contributes to the snug fit and extreme comfort of the shoes. Its Pump technology, which ditches the laces and pumps up air via a manual pump, ensures a fully customized and locked-in fit. And the ever-responsive Boost cushioning hugs your fit with comfort. 

As this model is in men’s sizing, going a half size down would be recommended for the ladies who want to cop a pair for themselves. 

This most awaited sneaker in the sneaker scene highlights a very minimalistic textile upper with a layered, cut-out design and a simple color structure. Outlined with a pebble-esque pattern, the uppers are almost entirely intact save for a co-branded band wrapped around the base. Reebok obviously took the lead on the design while Adidas’ contribution is the largest Boost sole ever.  Since it boasts of the very cozy Boost cushioning, there’s no problem wearing these kicks for the whole day. 

The strong, independent look is at the same time dynamic while also preserving a certain old-school vibe. The sneakers are not only praised for the overall design but also for the supreme comfort and performance-driven quality, that exudes a street-style vibe. In the first release, these kicks are available in three exclusive packs, the first being the Instapump Fury Boost “Prototype” followed by “OG Meets OG” and the monochromatic Black & White. 

Choosing an outfit to pair with the shoes is not a problem at all. These shoes are fashionably monochrome which offer up versatile alternatives. One can wear them with any type of denim, jogger pants or even shorts paired with t-shirts, plain-colored sleeves, or anything from one’s wardrobe. The shoes make any get-up stand out. 

Infused with the revolutionary Adidas Boost technology, the all-new Instapump Fury Boost is a perfect collaboration of Reebok and Adidas innovation in a lifestyle shoe. The balanced colors and crisp geometry grab a lot of attention. The Instapump custom-fit upper offers a secure fit through the manual pump.

Combined with the responsive energy of Adidas’s Boost midsole cushioning, comfort has never been this good while delivering incredible energy return. Moreover, Die-cut sockliner adds lightweight comfort. The rubber outsole provides maximum durability and traction. To complete the overall look of the sneakers, there’s a hang tag that features the Pump logo on one side and Boost branding on the other. On the heel, the Pump and Boost technologies are embroidered. 

After the historic release of the Pump  technology in the late ‘80s, the Instapump Fury came soon after. In 1994, the Instapump Fury was released and there was no other athletic shoe like it. It’s been regarded as an ambitiously experimental shoe that has been re-invented throughout the years.

For the unenlightened, Reebok has been a subsidiary company of Adidas since 2005. Although both brands are under the same umbrella corporation, Adidas and Reebok cater to the same market dealing on two opposite sides of the fence with little to no communication. 25 years later, which also marks the anniversary of the Instapump Fury, barriers between the vector and the Three Stripes have been broken down. Both athletic brands celebrated the heritage of the Instapump and the cushioning of Adidas’ Boost technology, creating the Instapump Fury Boost for a whole new generation. 

The Instapump Fury Boost is the first-ever Reebok model to incorporate Adidas’ innovative Boost technology. These kicks are inspired by a bold look of the ‘90s that still kept the Instapump Fury’s accents but have been greatly upgraded with unparalleled technologies. Built for breaking free and creating the unexpected, the Instapump Fury Boost is a perfect combination of Reebok and Adidas innovation.
