I came across this shoe after some time on Amazon.com and various other "cheap" shoe websites. I did not buy this to be my everyday walking around shoe, this is for 3-4 gym sessions a week. The price was so right that I was a bit nervous about the quality. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the weight (light), breath ability (good) and overall look (very cool).
I have had them for 2 months and they are still holding up. The great part is if they do start to come apart I can get another pair for less than $70. If you are concerned about quality because of the low price remember, if you want an everyday running shoe this is not your best option. If you want a gym shoe pull the trigger.
I have to admit that I was price shopping when I found these, I know nothing about running shoes, I just picked these because the price was towards the lower end of the scale and I love the vibrant colors. I've used these every day for a week now and they are game-changers compared to my k-mart shoes. I had no idea the difference a light weight shoe would make.
What also makes these nice is that instead of a solid sole it's made up of many rubber nodes. It's really flexible and absorbent. Really, they're almost like rocket shoes the way they spring back; It's almost like once you're running at a good pace they're pushing you along.
Also, the size is right on. I'm a 9.5 (us) as measured on those foot measurement scales in shoe stores so I ordered a 9.5 shoe...they don't run large or small, it fit perfectly.
So, if you wear / have worn Nike Frees or New balances, I recommend you go 1/2 size larger with these Reeboks. Otherwise, these shoes would've been excellent.
(had purchased when they first came out, have worn out first pair which I am referring to in this review)
I am in the fitness industry, and do everything under the sun. These were my primary shoe for at least a year. Mind you, I do change my shoes based upon activity to minimize risk of injury as well as unnecessary ware. I will say, that these soon became my primary work shoes, and as such have experienced nearly every form of training intensity under the sun.
These shoes were light, comfy, and definitely caught a few eyes. This is especially true when you consider I picked them to match my companies color scheme.
I suggest this shoe and purchase this shoe one more than one occasion. It has brought me back into the arms of Reebok for exercise shoes. I typically write my reviews upon the complete life cycle of the shoes.
This is a Nike world we live in. Just about everyone at my gym wears them. I decided to give two pair of Nike's a try. I first purchased a cheap "flex" trainer that I got for 45 dollars with a coupon. They're already my designated, "if I ever have to do an activity that would ruin a pair of shoes" shoes. No noticable flexibility in the shoe at all.
The second pair was the Nike Free Trainer - terrible workout shoe. Couldn't do calf raises in these shoes. My foot wasn't "Free" it was imprisoned. I injured my knee in these shoes. Although, I don't know how big a part they played.
Then I was on the Reebok website looking at RealFlex trainers. I saw these shoes listed for 100 bucks. Then I found these for 64 dollars on Amazon. Amazing shoes. The second I put them on, I knew that these shoes are perfect . I will have a hard time straying from RealFlex again. Since these are trainers your feet get all the support that they will ever need with AMAZING flexability. Nike shoes are for sheep.
