Positive
  • These have a good aout of use on them and they have been the best lateral support and quick movement shoes I have ever had. There super supportive and hold firm to the ground. They are light and powerful. I did get them professionally sized. I feel this is the best route for serious trainers.
  • I needed a good sturdy shoe for movement and running this fits both well. I had to break them in a bit, 2 days max. These are the best gym shoes for the price.
  • These are my dream shoes for my lifting and squats. They are extra stable and extra lightweight. Great cross fit shoe for sure.
  • I am a crossfit, HIIT, WOD, Agility training machine. I am an active gym persona nd these shoes are really stable and functional across the board. I ordered these a half size smaller and they are a crossfit dream. These feel so good on my feet.
  • They look great, feel great, super stable. I am impressed with how light they are to how functionable they are. Very impressed with this shoe and I highly recommend purchasing them.
  • This is a very light and versatile shoe. Light foot bed cushion and really helpful on knee impact. They have a good lateral grip and wide enough for lifting. They are a bit stiff at first but they loosen up nicely.
  • It lacks arch support, so I am not sure these would be great for runs. However, these are so good for lifting. They plant to the ground and are really stable.
  • These are light and great for flat feet or stability for lifting. I do not think running is what they are made for.They fit snug too, which is good for lifting.
  • These shoes helped my form. They were just right at a half size bigger, 8. They are priced well too for such a well made shoe.
  • These shoes are a good cross between a crossfit and runner. They have just a little bit of arch support. Just enough for good runs and not too much for movement. Great shoe and I am enjoying using them.
  • Besides the shoes looking great, they are super comfortable and are working great for my lifting. They have really flat soles that form to your foot. Super stable and I highly recommend.
  • Awesome shoe! They took a little bit of breaking in but the gave. They are good for warm ups and give great form for lifting and crosstrain. Perfect fit!
  • It is all here in this shoe: comfort, fit, style and they are really lightweight. I am very impressed with this shoe. My go to gym shoe.
  • These shoes are not all the way flat and offer just a little bumpy arch or a little warm up running before doing lifts. They are perfect and very versatile. These are made for people with more narrow feet, so be warned. I am really happy with them. They are exactly what I was expecting.
  • These fit my long narrow feet great. I use these to warm up and jump and lift. They have been super stable and comfortable through it all. I bought my normal size and they it great. I love the versatility of this shoe.
  • These are super great for the price. They fit me perfect and are very comfortable. They do seem to be a little week in the upper, so I do not think they will last as long as some shoes. But the price is great for this.
  • Way better than I was expecting because they were so cheap. I am in heaven with these. They also look really nice and have held up walking dogs all day.
  • These are great for crossfit just as they are advertised to be. They are made great and I use these to climb rope and they are working great, they could use a bit more arch support but nothing is perfect, right?
  • Super sturdy sole and the sides do not slide or over stretch when you are lifting these are great laterally and great for sudden motions. Great shoe.
  • These have been great for dead lifting, cross train and the 800m sprints. I am super impressed and will be buying again.
Negative
  • Great, solid lifting shoe. Too bad they are coming apart and separating where the rubber meets the shoe. And the mesh is coming apart. They didn't last a month.
  • They really smash the front toes. The back of the shoe fits nice. The laces pinch when they are secure. They did not work for me at all.
  • I am sad to say that this comfortable and good looking shoe is garbage. It as only good for maybe a month and it started to fall apart. The mesh is poorly made and starts to disintegrate.
  • The upper part of the heel had a bubble in it and started to rub me raw. Not happy with the product at all.
  • I got these mad cheap so I should have known they would have been garbage. They are putting my feet to sleep. It is the top of the shoe that hurts and matter what the laces dig in.
  • These are not good at all. The inside foam is thin and unsupportive. They are way too flexible and assist my over-pronation, not help it. I need much stiffer shoes.
  • I feel like the sole is made of plastic. It is hard and very uncomfortable. Poorly made CF shoe.
  • The glue on these was al over the shoe. These were so narrow and squished my toe. I didn't want to go up because they were also long. Disappointed so I returned them.
  • They hurt the top of my foot. They fit weird and tight. I returned them immediately.
  • These squeezed the ball of my foot pretty intensely. They just fit weird all together. Not comfortable at all. I ended up returning these.

Outsole
Outsole

Outsole

Upon the first examination of the Crossfit Speed TR 2.0’s outsole, it becomes immediately apparent that a great deal of thought went into its design. With hard rubber as its primary material, excellent durability is guaranteed. However, these shoes sidestep the common side effect of this construction style, which is a more rigid and heavy underfoot, through some clever design trickery. The single piece of rubber has been separated into several smaller plates with deep horizontal and vertical grooves providing extra flexibility without sacrificing stability, and small ridges provide a similar effect as teeth-like nubs without adding extra weight.
Midsole
Midsole

Midsole

As a training shoe, the midsole plays a very important role in maintaining high support and balance for a plethora of different exercises. In order to meet these multifaceted needs without adding too much weight, Reebok went for the popular choice of EVA foam for its midsole. This highly condensed foam material is a common choice for running and training shoes due to its high durability and excellent responsiveness. Explosive energy efficiency is guaranteed when wearing a pair of shoes that contain EVA in its midsole, with the Reebok Crossfit Speed TR 2.0 being no exception.
Upper
Upper

Upper

Reebok went for a specialized design for their upper in order to address the demands of the specialized form of exercise that is CrossFit. The secret to their success in this regard is through the use of their proprietary CORDURA mesh material. This is a lightweight and highly porous fabric, ensuring that the foot is kept at a comfortable temperature and free from moisture even during very intense physical activity. Additionally, this material provides excellent protection from abrasion damage and will be resilient enough to last for several months of intense CrossFit sessions.
Weight
Weight

Weight

With an average weight of just above 8 ½ ounces, these training shoes are extremely lightweight. They aren’t as light as a pair of barebones minimalist running shoes but are much lighter than the average pair of runners. This low weight is key to the Crossfit Speed TR 2.0’s success as a CrossFit training shoe. Since an average CrossFit training session involves many bodyweight exercises, any extra weight added by the trainer’s shoes could impair their performance. Reebok’s designers understand this and made these shoes as light as possible without sacrificing performance or protection as a result.
Breathability
Breathability

Breathability

In addition to weighing very little and providing excellent protection, the Speed TR 2.0’s CORDURA upper provides a significant benefit in regards to breathability. It shares a design with many other synthetic fabrics through its porous mesh material. Small holes present in the fabric allow for air to enter and move freely through the entirety of the inside, and relieve any uncomfortable heat or moisture. It’s extremely important for a pair of training shoes to maintain a comfortable internal climate, especially when performing the intense and physically demanding exercises that encompass a typical CrossFit session. Reebok designed these trainers to provide that very necessity.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

For the purpose of providing high-performance footwear at as low of a weight as possible, Reebok had to cut some corners. Unfortunately for comfort lovers, this means that the extra padding around the ankle and heel that is often incorporated into a pair of running shoes has been eliminated. This isn’t to say that these shoes are uncomfortable, simply that they don’t offer an emphasized insulated cushion that many fitness enthusiasts may find comfortable. Something that is also worth noting is that some wearers have experienced an uncomfortable tightness when wearing these shoes, even in their proper size, and recommend that customers purchase a half size larger model than their true shoe size to compensate.
Style
Style

Style

For the most part, a pair of training shoes needs to be functional more than they are fashionable. However, CrossFit is all about looking good, so Reebok ensured that these CrossFit-centric trainers look good as well. It’s sleek and high-end design manages to look tactical and fashionable and wouldn’t seem out of place in a more casual environment. The combination of materials that make these shoes work so well are color-coordinated with an equal level of design expertise. While function is much more important than appearance, customers of the Speed TR 2.0 can rest easy with the knowledge that they don't have to sacrifice their look.
Durability
Durability

Durability

As a pair of cross-training shoes, the Reebok Crossfit Speed TR 2.0 is able to handle stress from a variety of situations and on a few different forms of terrain. This is largely thanks to its impressively designed and manufactured outsole, although the upper portion with its CORDURA fabric plays a significant role as well. However, even with these impressive features, regular cleaning and maintenance will be necessary in order to ensure that these benefits are kept over the long term.
Protection
Protection

Protection

These shoes are meant to meet the needs of an intense CrossFit training session and are designed to offer a level of protection equivalent to that environment. This means that hard impact with the ground will be compensated through a protective outsole and absorbent midsole. Additionally, scuffing or abrasions on the upper will be met with a resilience that can save sensitive feet from sustaining any injuries. While this should be enough protection for the vast majority of exercises and situations, these shoes will not make the wearer’s feet invincible. In the unfortunate event that a barbell lands on the wearer’s toe, a trip to the emergency room will likely be in order.
Responsiveness
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

Thanks to the impressive EVA foam midsole implemented in the Reebok Crossfit Speed TR 2.0’s design, high responsiveness is guaranteed while wearing them. It also helps that these shoes are very lightweight and that the outsole isn’t designed with an excessive amount of grip. This is important for running shoes in order to improve their efficiency and reduce the amount of energy needed with each step. Unfortunately, many training shoes don’t emphasize this to such a degree. What makes these shoes different is that they are designed for the high-intensity training environment that is paramount to the CrossFit experience.
Support
Support

Support

Something important to note about these training shoes is that, much like many other training shoes, they were designed to provide support for a wide range of activities. This results in a shotgun-style approach to support where all areas of the foot and lower leg are covered without any emphasis being placed on one area. This means that for the average trainer, enough support will be provided to perform their physical exercises adequately. This only becomes a problem for individuals with a tendency toward particular injuries such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis, or turf toe. Anyone who needs special orthotic support or who experience chronic injuries will not find the support they need from these shoes and will likely want to look elsewhere for their training footwear needs.
Terrain
Terrain

Terrain

CrossFit exercises can be conducted indoors and outdoors and will require a reliable pair of shoes that can accommodate all the different terrains that come with these environments. Whether it’s a hard gym floor, a grassy field, or soft mud, these Reebok training shoes will provide the protection and durability to handle them. However, as training shoes, the Crossfit Speed TR 2.0 functions at its best in a gym environment. They will last longer and require less maintenance if they are used in these settings. Consequently, while these shoes can certainly handle some outdoor training, it is advised that wearers stick to indoor environments while wearing them.
Price
Price

Price

When considering the different features present in the Reebok Crossfit Speed TR 2.0’s design, the quality of its materials, and the ability for them to accommodate strenuous physical activity, the average customer may expect these shoes to cost somewhere in the higher end of the price spectrum. Fortunately, these shoes buck that trend by going for a very reasonable price, placing it much closer to the low end of the shoe price spectrum as an excellent budget option. When considering the fact that these are specialized shoes that are meant only for a particular environment, this value may seem less significant. However, these are still a reliable pair of high-performance training shoes sold at a reasonable cost.
Traction
Traction

Traction

For the most part, traction isn’t a concern in the kinds of environments commonly encountered while wearing training shoes. In a gym, the floors are designed to not require considerable emphasis on providing a good grip. However, these shoes weren’t made for just any gym training, they were made for CrossFit. As a result, the outsole provides a slight advantage in this department over other training shoes.
Flexibility
Flexibility

Flexibility

Since these Reebok cross trainers are intended for individuals performing multiple exercises at a high-intensity in rapid succession, they were designed with enough flexibility to handle a versatile range of activities. Fortunately, clever implementation of midsole cushioning and upper fabric ensure that the Speed TR 2.0 doesn’t go off the rails in this regard.
Stability
Stability

Stability

As a relatively lightweight training shoe, stability can be difficult to achieve. This is even more difficult when needing to balance stability with flexibility; too much of one extreme will result in discomfort and a lack of performance. It’s true that the Reebok Crossfit Speed TR 2.0 places more emphasis on providing a flexible experience than a stable one, however, the high-quality midsole and low heel drop offset this to the degree that some stability is still present. These may not be the best option for serious weightlifting but they will certainly get the job done for a typical CrossFit session.
Drop
Drop

Drop

When deciding on the heel to toe elevation for a pair of shoes, manufacturers like to adopt different styles for different forms of footwear. Trail shoes and running shoes need to have a bit more cushioning in the heel since runners tend to strike the ground with the back of their feet. However, training shoes don’t need to favor the rearfoot since they are meant to accommodate exercises that fall outside of the traditional running routine. For that reason, Reebok decided to design their Speed TR 2.0 with a meager 3 mm drop, providing just enough elevation to help running shoe enthusiasts transition into this new style of footwear.
