Reebok All Terrain Super Review Facts

The Reebok All Terrain Super is a shoe created for the rigors of those testing their mettle on any of the obstacle course races that are taking the running world by storm. Built to withstand mud, roots, steep inclines, and various obstacles, the All Terrain Super is performing in a niche market. And most agree that Reebok has really gotten so many of the necessary components right as this shoe is nimble and sturdy, that it is a shame to have quite a few dissenting reviews on the comfort of the heel. The chief concern is that, according to a handful of reviewers, the heel “shreds your ankles” making them unwearable and creating a necessary time to heal for some runners before they can come back to doing what they love.  And this comfort factor begs the question, that even with all the good this shoe can do, how does one get past this issue? Keep in mind, not all are displeased, there are many overwhelming responses to the All Terrain Super citing it as the best available for this specific type of racing. It can have you adeptly scaling muddy inclines and keeping your footing amid water obstacles yet still manage to keep the feet light and airy with its excellent drainage. There seems to be no in between with this shoe, making it a hit or miss.

Below you will read a summary of them:

Positive
  • These are the equivalent to a 4x4 tire for your foot the traction is epic. These were my spartan shoes and they held up superb. The tongue on these are a bit shoe and probably will sink in after a long bit of use. They are comfortable and sturdy otherwise
  • The shoelaces were pretty crappy. However, the shoe itself is really light and seems like its a beast of a shoe. They are comfortable and really going to be fun for the upcoming races.
  • I was surprised that they were so light and the grip was freaking epic.
  • These are great for rope climbing. The instep is super grippy and the shoe isso light. The bottom nubs are spaced good so there is no picking up dirt and debris. They aren't as durable as others I do not think. After running in them, I felt comfortable and secure in them so I kept them. These went in the rain like a beast and the hills and terrain didn't have a chance. They ran the Spartan race for me I think.
  • These shoes were so dope. The water and mud just washed right through them. They have great sport like cleats on the bottom and were great on all the surfaces I used them on in the races. They have really held up and are comfy. I would recommend.
  • I’d say I am an obstacle course guru and these shoes are my magic carpet. These not only fit like a glove they are lightweight, comfortable and the mud just pours out of them. The mesh is so easy to clean, spray and go. The lacing system really holds my feet stable too. These have changed my life.
  • This is a niche shoe, made for all terrain obstacles. These feel like a glove not a boot or cleate , which they resemble. They have some serious traction on the, I sized in these at a whole 1.5 size smaller than I normally wear.
  • I had the 2.5 and they wore out in the pinky really fast, made a hole after a couple runs.These seem to be a whole lot more durable.
  • These run really large. They are super light and are comfortable for what they are designed for. The traction is super charged and keeps you where our are without a bit or slippage. They really have a great drainage too.
  • Super impressed with the drain system in these. It is designed to drain at the pinky toe area so when you lift your ftt to run everything drains out, so smart. They are really light and a bit wider than i am used too. I would suggest getting a size smaller or double up on the socks. honestly , the best shoes for trail running I have ever bought. I highly recommend these.
  • WOAH! So extremely light for what they are. They are super comfy and surprisingly flexible. The grip is one of the best I have ever had and they are super stable and carry my 220lbs really well.
  • These are super on the drain aspect. I was able to run in puddles and they drained so fast. I wouldn't use another shoe for obstacle racing ever again. They are so light too.
  • These are really minimal but super functional. The drain is great and the grip is double time. They were a bit unstable on concrete and wood flooring. But they are comfortable and great on the trails.
  • The material is great for the water works we have to go through on the courses. They drain and the material, although it felt cheap, really didn't retain any water. These are a lot lighter than I remember the previous trail sneakers. They helped me run a bit faster and they did not slip around, great grip.
  • I used these for my obstacle training and i never had one issue. No pain or blisters ever. I like that they are a bid snug on my foot.
  • The exterior on these is super durable and rugged yet they feel like a sneaker on the inside and are really light. They hug my feet in all the right spots. I really love these shoes. I
  • These worked great for me on the ice and in the snow. They are super light and worked great on everything I threw at them. I don't see these being great for heel runners, not sure they would keep you too stable.
  • These grab the trails like a animal. The drain really well and are lighter than I first thought they would be. They are a bit slick on smooth wet surfaces so be cautious. These are at there best in the grime and mud, SPARTA!
  • These do exactly what they were built to do with comfort in mind. They are so light and grip great. These keep me supported and secure m ankles from rolling. I swear by Reebok and these have proven me right again.
  • Epic mud tracking and gripping. They kept me from slipping all over the place like other participants in the race. The water flowed out easily. My ankles could use a bit more support but overall, it is a great designed shoe.
Negative
  • These fell apart after one run. The heels started peeling away. They were way too expensive for that crap. I am not sure these would last on a mattress let alone all terrains.
  • These shoes didn't even last one race. They were ripped to shreds. These shoes are complete garbage and I would not recommend buying them.
  • They went on and fit fantastic and comfy. I went to tie them right before the race and the eyelets busted out. I was so angry. RETURNED.
  • When I got these they looked way worse than the photo. I was not happy with the design at all and sent them back.
  • These shoes are lacking a lot. They have no support and made my hips hurt. The mud was sticking in the shoe but the water was flowing good. The whole thing felt lose because I couldn't get the laces to stay in place. They have lose heels too.
  • These are really cheaply made “trail” shoes. I wouldn't call them that, because they are not durable at all, felt like plastic blocks on my feet.
  • With every model, they have gotten worse. These are like a new shoe, a new worse type of shoe. Let me see, the ankles let so much stuff in because they are made with a weird lacing system that doesn't tighten at the top correctly. The tongue crinkles on one side when they are tightened. They just really collect way too much crap and that isn't something that normally is a problem for me, not only through the ankle but the mesh material also lets stuff in. . I had to clean these out 3 times on my last run. The toe box i not secure at all, it is overly wide and my feet slide all over the front on climbs. I can keep going. The design is just horrible and I will not be buying these any more.
  • The eyelets are crap I only got a couple wears on these and they ripped out. The shoes, I liked. They adjust aren't made to last i guess.
  • These didn't even last a race. They ripped open on a rope climb. Man, was I busted without good shoes for the rest of the race. They had good weight and comfort and grip while they did last.

Outsole
Outsole

Outsole

OCRs (Obstacle Course Race) require an agility and sturdiness, and athletes train hard to bring these qualities to the starting line. The shoes they wear also need to be able to go the distance and match that agility and sturdiness. To that end, the sole of the Reebok All Terrain Super is reported to be among the best out there. Well placed lugs, with the larger ones on the outside edge of the sole and the strategically placed smaller ones running the length of it, help obstacle course racers navigate their paths. A special grippy arch patch, dubbed the rope guard, helps create traction for rope climbs. Having partnered with Spartan Races prior to the inception of this shoe, it seems Reebok has tried to cover all the bases.
Midsole
Midsole

Midsole

Complete with a midfoot rock guard, the sole of the All Terrain Super is built to cover whatever the OCR directors throw in your path - from rocks to water to gravel to mud. With less cushioning, this shoe seems to have a decent ground feel that allows for a responsive experience creating confidence for the toughest challenges.
Upper
Upper

Upper

The upper is comprised of a thin synthetic fabric with a special duragrip technology covering the toebox. It incorporates a FitFrame system to seamlessly weld the upper together. But the biggest talking point about this shoe is its highly regarded built-in drainage system. With the upper's fabric that does not seem to hold water and the ports on the side of the shoe, the All-Terrain Super's drainage is top rated. While there were some concerns over tearing and durability of the upper's fabric, it was generally thought they are mainly comfortable. While some said they'd have liked additional padding, there was little in the way of cushioning allowing for the shoe to remain lightweight and not retain water. The tongue seems to be no-frills but effective. The laces were called out a few times for coming undone and some suggested an initial replacement to avoid this mid-race.
Weight
Weight

Weight

Decreed by many reviewers as a top contender among OCR style shoes, this shoe gets a little "extra" by proving to be lightweight. Reported to come in under 9oz, this is relatively light even for a standard trail runner. Now it doesn't offer a ton of cushioning but most seem to feel they have not sacrificed comfort. And not only through the construction and materials of this shoe does it achieve this, but also with its ability to effectively drain water.
Breathability
Breathability

Breathability

Most reviewers indicated they were pleased with how this shoe kept their feet cool and dry even in wet and muddy conditions. This shoe has a more water resilient synthetic upper and ports on the sides to facilitate proper draining, thereby creating a lighter, airier experience.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

This is the sticking point for this shoe. While some are quite pleased with the overall comfort of this shoe, even claiming no break-in period is needed, just as many were also just as dissatisfied with the comfort of the heel of the All Terrain Super's upper, claiming it is unwearable. The main point of contention in the heel is the rubbing of the back on the ankle. To combat this, most resorted to higher ankle socks and even moleskin protection; however, many were still feeling the pain of blisters. In addition to this, the lower cut of the heel around the ankle created too much movement for it and left it unsupported and this caused a few wearers to rule this shoe out of their running wardrobe. OCR enthusiasts expect a lot out of a shoe as the terrain covered is often tricky and multifaceted. And while this first installment of the All Terrain Super did not please everyone with its heel, its ability to drain water and keep the foot cool and dry in wet and warm conditions is an absolute plus that had many ranking it very high in that regard. Overall, comfort is a matter of preference and the right shoe can make all the difference. Hopefully, future generations of this shoe will come back having made this shoe one for the OCR masses.
Style
Style

Style

The reviews on the style of this shoe are mostly favorable. Many love the fun and bright colors complete with coordinating laces that Reebok introduced. Some say the All Terrain Super feel like they are a step above the rest in substance and style. The men's shoes are available in 2 color combinations while the women have four to choose from. There were special editions released that showcased flag patterns and camouflage as well.
Durability
Durability

Durability

While there were multiple concerns over tears in the upper during intended use, overall, this shoe garnered positive feedback for its impressive ability to withstand the grueling conditions and surfaces encountered in obstacle course racing. Mud, water, rocks, roots - this shoe handles them all ... and with relative ease, according to most reviewers. Many wearers report the Reebok All Terrain Super as their go-to for all their challenging races, claiming it holds up well despite the additional wear and tear. The drainage system is a clear winner. Keeping the shoe dry provides an additional advantage that many in this niche do not.
Protection
Protection

Protection

The completely synthetic upper was prone to tears when used among rocks and various other conditions conducive to an OCR. With large tears, debris was allowed in and, needless to say, created an environment for damage to the foot. Underfoot protection is another story though. Well placed nubs and lugs provided a stellar barrier preventing pain or injury to the foot. Superior drainage through ports on the sides was appreciated as a way of keeping the feet free from water and effectively drying out quickly.
Responsiveness
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

The lightweight nature of this shoe really helps runners step it up. Keeping the feet agile with a lightweight shock absorbing midsole amid adverse conditions is a key element of this shoe's responsiveness.

Support
Support

Support

The upper of the All Terrain Super is made from synthetic fabric and edged in duragrip for a good fit. The sole unit's rock guard meshed into the midsole provides support midfoot as well. Some had concerns over the support at the ankle because of the low cut ankle but overall, many are more pleased than not. The greatest con about this shoe is that the upper, for some users, tore easily, which would lessen the support it provides. Tears in the upper mean the fit of the shoe would be compromised.
Terrain
Terrain

Terrain

Partnering with Spartan OCR, Reebok knew the ground it needed to cover when creating the All Terrain Super. And that its did... cover all terrain...with confidence. From muddy trenches to rocky inclines and steep descents, the majority of wearers feel that this shoe does what it set out to do. With the larger lugs on the edges, this shoe can grip and hang on to various obstacles and the smaller lugs down the center of the shoe create the ability to find your footing on most other surfaces. In addition, a rope clinching grip pad in the arch goes the extra mile to make this shoe OCR worthy.
Price
Price

Price

While this shoe seems to fit right in among others in this dedicated market, it is still quite expensive. Some balk at the cost as it is not as comfortable as they had hoped; though many agree its ability to tackle OCRs like a champ is more than commendable. It is a standout among its competitors, and the concern for the heel of the upper will get you lined up and revved to go.
Traction
Traction

Traction

Greeted with overarching positive reviews, the All Terrain Super provides the traction required to unleash your inner beast on the challenges of the OCR. It is lauded for its exceptional grip in almost all conditions, including the cargo net and even a grippier arch area for rope climbing obstacles, only noted with the exception of a smooth wet surface as the spikes gave less ground contact and caused some slippage.

Flexibility
Flexibility

Flexibility

With an upper and sole unit touted as flexible and nimble, most are pleased with the All Terrain Super as it allows them the freedom to quickly and effectively traverse obstacles.

Stability
Stability

Stability

This shoe does not offer any particular stability features toward handling pronation issues. It is a neutral shoe. And despite less support on the heel because of a lower cut ankle, this shoe with its seamlessly welding FitFrame technology in the upper still provides the necessary support required to go the distance on a challenging course that has varied surfaces. Well-placed lugs and a rock guard wedged in the sole unit provide just the right dose of stability midfoot for a more secure ride.
Drop
Drop

Drop

This shoe has a low drop of 5 mm. This allows for precise ground feel and a greater connection to the obstacles in OCR races.
Key Features

Key Features

- A superior draining system sets this shoe apart from the crowd in the OCR shoe market.

- An impressive and well-thought outsole unit design allows for the ultimate in grip and traction on the challenges that make up these obstacle courses.

- The upper of the shoe, while thin and comfortable, is prone to tears reducing durability and protection.

- The heel of the upper rises too high for many impeding the ability to effectively test out this shoe.


Bottom Line
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

If it weren't for the risk of pain in the ankle, this would be an absolute must try. Most are pleased with its superior handling on the challenging courses in the world of Obstacle Course Racing, tackling everything from muddy inclines to wading through mud pits with confidence. The drainage of the shoe leaves many to feel pleased and raring to go as it alleviates excess weight in the shoe. BUT... what good are all these features if you cannot wear the shoe because it creates blisters or causes injury to your ankle? While some were disconcerted with that comfort factor, just as many would rate this shoe top marks. Hopefully, later incarnations of this shoe will address the issue of a heel that cuts into the skin or that lacks support so that OCR enthusiasts can have a clear-cut forerunner to grind it out in grueling conditions and walk away only scathed, not by the shoes, but only by the course.
