Reebok Floatride Run Fast
Returning to the running scene with a loud bang (should that be light bang?), this model uses the brand’s Floatride foam to provide incredibly light and responsive cushioning. Two Reebok models use this new technology – the Run Fast and the Pro (see below for latter). The shoe is designed for out-and-out racing and faster paced runs.
With the inclusion of a layer of traditional EVA foam, the midsole is surprisingly stable for such a light shoe and it feels very balanced on the foot. A 10mm heel drop means it’s also easy to “pull on and go” and the foot rolls forward naturally as the pace increases. The upper is a light engineered mesh with a no-nonsense design that wraps the foot well whilst providing a very natural feeling level of support around the foot. The Run Fast is ideal for longer races on the roads as well as faster paced training but it also feels durable enough to provide plenty of miles from the lightweight cushioning.
