Let’s be honest – Reebok in the 90’s was on some futuristic stuff. From the Shaq/Kamikaze/Blast and other basketball designs to the cushioning technologies, including DMX and 3D Ultralite, the Vector was waaayyyy ahead of the times.
Luckily, those technologies and design inspirations have been coming back, starting two years ago with the re-introduction of DMX. The moving-air technology was a complete breakthrough when it first appeared and is still just as comfortable as it was 25 years ago. The latest shoe to make use of the technology: The DMX Series 2K.
While the online product description uses the words “DMX Foam” the midsole and outsole look exactly like the DMX 1200 from last year which used an I-PAK cushioning (one large bubble in the forefoot, one large bubble in the heel, and a transfer between). The upper consists of textile and synthetic panels layered to give that 90’s feel while still being lightweight and comfortable.
The DMX Series 2K is available now on Reebok.com in one men’s color and five for women. Retail is really nice – $90, staying in that 90’s theme. If you are a Reebok/Vector head, do these excite you at all? Loving the new design? Or do you prefer the Classics as is? Let us know here or on our new Discord channel and discuss.
