Notable Features

The Reebok Sublite Legend is a product that is meant for those who are just getting into running as a part of their lives. It also has a sleek yet sporty look to cater to shoe enthusiasts that just wear performance footwear during their casual urban strolls. The silhouette uses a breathable, multilayered mesh that is reinforced with printed and stitched-on overlays.

Underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the industry-standard ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). This material serves as both the midsole and the outsole, thus maintaining an overall lightweight build that doesn’t hinder the foot. Rubber still covers the heel part, but it is mostly for abrasion protection and not for consistent traction.

Size and fit

The standard sizing schemes were used when the Reebok Sublite Legend was made. Runners are encouraged to accommodate their usual selections of size when it comes to this model because it has been constructed to be true to size. Still, being able to enjoy an agreeable in-shoe experience may need personal testing of this shoe or observation of reviews from various sources.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Reebok Sublite Legend is made of ground-contact foam, the same one that is used for the midsole unit. The job of this part of the platform is to provide grip through a pattern of lines and sipes.

The heel part of the external pad features a rubber compound. The purpose of this extra layer is to shield the foam from the abrasive natures of surface-contract and continued use.

Flex grooves are meant to make the platform as bendable as possible, thus assisting the natural gait progression. The toe-off is the part of the step that benefits the most from this design as it involves the bending of the toe joints and muscles.

Midsole

Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) is used for the midsole unit of the Reebok Sublite Legend. This material is a regularly used piece of accoutrement that helps the foot through the gait cycle. It is light and able to mitigate impact shock. EVA is used by many running shoe series, including the Hoka One One Arahi.

Upper

The upper unit of the Reebok Sublite Legend uses a multilayered mesh, the task of which is to hold the foot in place and keep it secure. It has tiny holes that allow air to maintain a cool and dry interior environment for the foot.

Printed overlays permit the rest of the fabrics to hold the foot in place securely without sacrificing weight and the sleekness of the upper unit’s design.

The heel has a stitched-on overlay to hold the back of the foot in place and save it from accidental shoe removals.
