Reebok Hexaffect Run 2.0 Fully Reviewed
Many fans of athleisure products and fitness footwear tend to sleep on Reebok, which is a real shame. Although their popularity has waned in recent years, they never reached the same heights that acclaimed brands such as Adidas and Nike have, despite offering a wide range of functional and adequately fashionable products. In particular, Reebok has created some fantastic training shoes, with their recent line of Crossfit-focused trainers being particularly impressive. The Reebok Hexaffect Run is their take on a highly functional running shoe, with considerable design emphasis being placed on providing a fantastic running experience wrapped up in a durable and comfortable shell.
- Excellent outsole design
- Fantastic underfoot traction and flexibility
- Terrific blend of breathability and protection
- Superb durability
- Affordable price
- Somewhat garish style
- Limited availability
- I’m a part time runner, not many miles a week, good ventilation from the upper, nice for dirt surfaces but not to much on the road, flexibility is fine and support from the sole unit seems good to. Snug fit from the upper but could be more supportive, its not a pricey shoe and it’s ok for moderate running.
- I found its a love it or hate it shoe, very comfy but don’t hit the trail with these unless you’re just hiking, climbing would also be fine and the tread is effective, had mine for almost a year and I use this shoe for what is was designed for. I’m going to get another pair or maybe go for the next upgrade.
- These fit me well and I feel they are durable, they fit and feel like cross fit shoes rather than running shoes, comfortable enough on local runs but don’t work for free runs any longer distance, the shoe base is big and stable and lots of breathable fabric. I like the memory foam insoles.
- Don’t give much thought to the shoes ripping easily unless you have very wide feet or are bow legged, take a good stride and choose firm surfaces and these run good enough. I’m out on a ride about twice a week total about eight miles and I’m happy with these so far. The price is cheap and the shoes are made well and comfortable enough and they don’t really need much breaking in.
- Bought a pair for my son, he is 10, he’s got giant feet and very wide for his age, he says they are very comfortable, loves the memory cushion and walks everywhere in them, he not a runner but he does challenge a pair of shoes and these are working for him.
- I can say this, these have breathable tops, the memory foam feels good and I like the comfort, I’m a size 13 and the Fit is good, the shoes look good and I’m sure I couldn’t find better for what I paid.
- Nice shoes, I love the comfort I get for the shoe price, very comfy insoles due to the nice surprise of memory foam, I walk around a lot, hike on moderate trails and I like these.
- I got a pair, they fit my narrow feet perfectly, bang on, arch support is so-so but its ok, I am up on my feet most of the day and these are nice and my feet don’t sweat or ache at the end of the day. The uppers are easy to keep clean off and I even do basketball in these. Nice to look at, a good design. I can’t say about durability but no problems yet after 4 months.
- Got these in a sale and 4 months later they are good, comfortable, little bit creasy but no big deal, I do jog a few times each week in the forest near my home, the shoes are good for this but I can’t say I would run on hard surfaces such as roads. Went to Disneys, spent 14 hours on my feet and it was comfortable and no sweaty problems as my feet can breath in them. I think the memory foam works a treat.
- I’m a women but this time I got a pair of these in the men's version, I don’t regret it these are very comfortable, I walk everywhere and these shoes keep my feet super comfortable. The memory foam sets up these as my choice of shoes. I’m not running but I do walk around all day and I recommend these.
- These work like cross fit trainers for me, I’m very impressed, the shoe is like a jack of all trades, I pretty much wear them casually, walking, cycling, short runs around my neighborhood. These didn’t cost much and I got my monies worth.
- My son has big feet, he takes after me, the shoes belong to my boy but at times my wife often wants to use them, she loves the memory foam, it’s new to her and says it is incredibly comfortable. My son wears them everywhere, sports, in the yard, going to the mall and even some running. I gave in and got myself a pair, Yes, I like em heck of a lot.
- This is my 3rd pair of Hexaffect shoes, I like every version and I will keep buying these. In the shoes now I have noticed the memory foam and it gives a lot of comfort, I’m six months into these shoes and so far no signs of wear and tear, nice price. I have used these on flat hiking trains without problems.
- Reeboks won through again, I use these everyday as casual get about shoes, the sole is wearing well, the inside is very comfortable under my foot and the top part of the shoes let my feet breath. Had mine for 9 months now and wont hesitate to buy them again.
- I don’t like too much cushion in my shoes and I thought twice about these when I saw the words memory foam but then I got a pair because the price is lower than a lot of other shoes. After a few days I was sold, I rate the comfort at 10 out of 10.
- I couldn’t believe the low easy price, thought it’s a brand name at this price, whats the catch? I had to give them a go and I don’t regret it, 7 months of good comfortable shoes and they also look really in style.
- This is a light shoe, I’m hardly aware when I walk around and the comfort level is really satisfying, I’m a lady runner and I really do get on well with these shoes, they are perfect for my weekend runs.
- I don’t push these for running but I do run twice a week and the level of comfort is good, I think this is because of the memory foam and the strong under sole. I like the shoes and they are good for moderate running but I would say they might not last if you used them for running 4 or 5 days a week. The upper seems thin but it’s holding up.
- I couldn't resist the price, I bought them and when I unboxed the shoes I noticed the upper material, it looked flimsy, like it would just rip apart while running. I’m three months into the shoes and so far its all good. The comfort is good, I like the memory foam but a little more padding would be nice.
- These low cost shoes double up for use, yes I can run in them and they are comfortable, my feet feel cool because the upper materials lets air flow but it don’t stop the rain. The grip while running is nice, no slipping. I wouldn’t take them for a ride on a wet challenging mountain trail ride but for easy running conditions they are comfortable and durable enough. The second use is that they look great and are excellent shoes for casual wear.
- Reebok you have let me down with this particular shoe, especially after seeing some of the 4-5 star online reviews. Virtually zilch padding and zilch shock absorption; I feel everything I step on despite the thick sole. It’s like walking on 2 x 4's attached on my feet. I can say it ain’t’ the worst pair of shoes, but I won’t get them again.
- I just gave 25 for them so I didn’t bother to return them, the top and toe are badly constructed, to make the shoe look sleek or right I got to over tighten it. But ok for in the yard so you can keep the money.
- Where's the front support cushion for these shoes? It feels like my toes can rip through at anytime and I think it’s because the back of the shoe is lifted way too high, it’s not a good angle for running and I don’t think these will get past a few months.
- Comfy memory foam while I’m sitting but when I walk I can feel that there is no other padding and the foam gets hard towards the bottom, really not the right types of shoe for putting in hours of running, they can’t give enough support.
- For me this isn’t a running shoe, where is the shock absorption? Sure they are ok for elliptical training or weight lifting but for running these just ain’t right for me unless just a quick run around the park. I didn’t feel much padding from the memory foam and could feel the jolt on hard surfaces.
- By two months there was a hole in the cloth upper net which is growing each time I wear the shoes, I was really put off by this and expected better, I like ventilation for my shoe but not this way.
- I have seen bad wear and tear just after the first month, I think it” s because the fabric is really low quality and it” s tearing away from the shoe edge, I do run regularly but nothing tough enough to see this kind of problem from a newish shoe, I’m disappointed.
- The material (fabric) used is of real low quality. My shoes started to show wear and tear after one month just running a few times a week. The fabric started to tear apart right from the edges of the shoes. I give it that the shoe seems ok for casual wearing and it’s comfortable, but it don’t work for running.
- In just a few months the mesh got a big hole, just tore open, my feet are wide and they pinched my foot and the top is too tight, nice looking shoe but it did not work out for me. I can’t even use them for walking.
- They feel just comfortable until you take out the inserts and then the shoe feels like junk and they ran a lot larger than I expected when I used the Reebok fitting tool. They work for walking but I am sure they wont work for my amount of running, I paid 25 and I think I might have got a better deal for my money at Walmart.
- I wanted a shoe for cross/training and I took a chance, no support, the toe box is really thin and no support, however if for walking around these are great and comfortable but for a lot of running I recommend giving these a miss. The lack of a sound cushion base kills the shoes potential for serious running and the fabric used to make the shoe is far to thin. Wouldn’t try to wear these out in winter.
- Stones get caught in the spaces, a rip after just 30 days, the arch support is not enough, thin material so not much support, the toe box needs more under cushion but the shoe looks nice. I think these were made as a walk about shoe and not for running. The price is ok for that.
- Hexaffect outsole design emphasizes flexibility and traction
- EVA midsole provides dense stability and bouncy responsiveness
- Upper portion made from breathable mesh reinforced with faux leather
- Heavier than average weight
- Rear finger loop makes it easier to put shoes on
