REE­BOK FLOATRIDE RUN UL­TRA

Canadian Running - - FALL SHOE GUIDE -

Men’s 233 g (8.2 oz.); Women’s 198 g (7 oz.); Drop ra­tio: 8 mm; $180 Edi­tor’s Pick: Best neu­tral shoe

Ree­bok have made a come­back to run­ning in a big way with the Floatride, their high con­cept train­ing shoe for se­ri­ous run­ners. It’s not only a gor­geous look­ing shoe, with its knit up­per and great colour­ways, but it re­sponds to the de­mands of ev­ery­thing our testers have thrown at it.

The mid­sole is the key to how great the Floatride feels on both hard, fast work­outs and dur­ing a more care­fully paced 30k long run. Its sin­gle piece of foam and rub­ber tread through­out is highly f lex­i­ble, but not at all sloppy or un­bal­anced. Many of our testers re­ported that they ac­tu­ally didn’t no­tice the shoe dur­ing an easy run (which we see as high praise), but felt its re­spon­sive­ness when push­ing the pace. Ree­bok are on to some­thing with the de­sign and tech­nol­ogy in this ex­cit­ing shoe.
