Reebok All Terrain Super
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.
- With an overwhelmingly positive response, the Reebok All Terrain Super boasts superior grip and traction in mud and rough terrain that are the backbone of Obstacle Course Races.
- Many wearers were extremely impressed with the drainage of the shoe that gave them confidence to cross all manner of water and mud.
- Feedback on the shoe indicated that the light weight of the shoe was a plus on the course and in packing.
- Some reviews were pleased with the fun color combinations available.
- The no-fuss, speed lacing system found in some trail shoes was an attractive option for some.
- The chief complaint among wearers is that the heel of the All Terrain Super's upper is quite uncomfortable creating cuts and blisters despite wearing socks or moleskin protection.
- In addition to the pain caused by the heel, most also found the low-cut on the ankle provided too little support.
- The All Terrain Super was not true to size, often running too large.
- Despite the confidence inspired by the solid grip, some OCR enthusiasts found this shoe to be too expensive for the amount of comfort and durability issues encountered.
- While the traction was impressive on tricky terrains customary to OCR world, it could not adequately handle smooth surfaces.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
An impressive and well thought out sole 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.
