Reebok just dropped its new line of running shoes, the DMX Sky, and word is that it turns concrete into clouds. At least it feels that way. These airy kicks sport three rows of bubble cushion that allow an air stream to flow through the undercurrent of the soles, causing hard surfaces like concrete to feel soft like the “sky”. It’s a wonder why they weren’t just called “Sky Walkers”.
You can literally feel moving air at the soles of your feet, giving a “shoeless” feel to these running kicks. They are the latest in Reebok’s alternative line to minimalist jogging shoes and feature the latest DMX technology which uses moving air flow. Unlike traditional foam cushioning, moving air does not wear out. And though most companies use compressed air models, the DMX Sky’s moving air feature causes the shoe cushions to move in sync with the runner’s weight freely, giving it a custom made feel.
As for the Sky’s appearance, it’s safe to say that these will probably stay in your closet during date night. Their distinctive appearance gives it a clear “exercise wear” vibe and fit in more at the track or gym than at the club. They’re still a distinctively colorful pair of running kicks, but hey, sometimes you have to trade cool for comfort. Ultimately, these kicks were made for running, proudly boasting “cloud-like” softness from the moment they’re put on.
The Reebok DMX Sky retails for about $130 a pair for both men and women, and can be found at Finish Line and Reebok.com.
