It is the newest iteration of the performance meets leisure wear.

- Fashion forward
- Slip-on design
- Cushioned midsole
- Unique Pump technology
- Not suited for extreme workouts
The outsole is made from durable carbon rubber. This shoe is not an inexpensive product, and Reebok was sure to include durability features that would make this an investment and justify the higher cost. The outsole does just that. This shoe just came out in March, and runners who purchased this shoe six months ago say it still looks and feels new. It can be attributed, in part to the carbon rubber in the outsole.
This midsole design of this shoe is not concerned with performance in races, and training runs as much as it is on helping the athlete feel comfortable as they run errands around town, meet their friends for lunch, or go on a long walk in the evening.
Runner commented that this shoe was perfect for being on your feet all day due to the supportive outsole and the cushioned midsole.
The pump creates an individualized fit that runners have describes as snug and sock-like. In the past, the pump technology has been used for athletic advancement, but now it has found a new home on a fashion-forward casual shoe. The material used is fleece-like, and runners describe it as feeling more like a slipper than a workout shoe.
This shoe is lightweight enough to wear every day and even so light on the feel that runners didn't feel the need to wear socks with this shoe.
Adding open mesh would make this shoe look too much like an athletic shoe and not enough like a fashionable shoe, so Reebok ditched the open mesh and opted instead of lightweight cotton. One element of this breathable upper that athletes loved was that the shoe didn't require the runner to wear socks because of the superior comfort and breathability.
The shoe is a slip-on model and doesn't even require laces due to the pump that is attached to the upper. This pump provides each unique runner with a customized fit. Runners claimed that this is one of the top morecomfortable shoes they have ever worn.
Even the midsole of the shoe, the Carbonated foam material, was explicitly included because it is known to be the most comfortable choice for midsole foam.
This shoe comes in a few different muted color options (gray, white, black, and flecks of red are the primary color pallet) so these aren't the right choice for the runner who is looking for a bold, vibrant color pallet. This shoe is more sleek, sophisticated and understated in its style. It is mostly because this shoe is not designed to be worn with exercise clothing as much as it is designed to be worn with casually cool, everyday fashion.
Runner commented that they received lots of compliments while wearing this shoe.
Additionally, runners were surprised at how durable the upper material is considering how lightweight and soft it is.
Since this isn't a shoe that is going to be going on extreme adventure runs, Reebok didn't waste added weight on protection elements.
Likewise, since the upper of the shoe is individualized for each athlete through the patented pump, runners felt supported through the snug fit of the upper.
Instead, this is an excellent shoe for a date, a trip to the mall, a walk around the neighborhood, or as a shoe to pick up or drop off the kids at school or soccer practice.
The traction features in this shoe will keep you safe and secure on regular roads and fields, but it is not designed for more intense off-road adventures.
Likewise, the outsole of the shoe has a very flexible feel and promotes a natural footfall. Overall, those who purchased this shoe loved that it felt natural and never stiff on their feet.
The midsole of the shoe does have added cushioning, but because this shoe is not designed for intense workouts, there isn't a need for added stability features to protect the runner from issues with overpronation.
- The outsole is comprised of durable carbon rubber
- Carbonated midsole foam is lightweight but very cushioned
- No lace system promotes a snug slip-on fit
The primary concern for the Reebok Pump Supreme Hoodie is to give the runner a superior fitting shoe that looks stylish and new. Runners love this shoe as their casual shoe.
It is a shoe for runners who like to blend fashion and function. The price tag is a little pricey, but reviewers agree that it is completely worth it. It is very durable, and the design of the upper, especially, helps to keep the shoe looking and feeling new.
The Reebok Pump Supreme Hoodie is an investment that will enhance your wardrobe and accessorize your favorite casual outfits.
