A training shoe designed to move and flex with you as you train, with additional support and stability elements to meet the rigors of agility movements. RealFlex Strength TR- is natural movement, perfected.
I was confident these shoes would hold up and they are so far, except that the black rubber on the bottom has started to come off. It only took a month for it to come loose, so I'm not sure how much longer they'll last (going on 3 months now.)
The comfort level is very low because the strap over the foot (and under the laces) puts extra pressure on your foot and they often fall asleep and feel very uncomfortable. it's the same size as my other reebok shoes so I let them wear-in, but still it's too tight, unlike the Scream 2.0, which fit famously.
The strap which makes your foot fall asleep is also squeaky. The elastic material causes it to flex and rub against the rest of the shoe materials so if it's real quiet you can hear an audible "squeak" with every step.
Otherwise, the shoes are nice. Probably better for folks with flat feet though. My arches are pretty standard.
With independent multi-directional flex nodes on the sole that provide protective flexibility throughout your run, the lightweight RealFlex Scream is natural motion, perfected.

Wonderful Shoe, if weak
This shoe has never failed to perform perfectly - because when the sole started to come off after 6 months, I had just bought new Reebok shoes and could swap over to them. The new ones were a different kind and part of the bottom was coming apart after a month, some of the rubber was separating from the other stuff. I do run a couple miles a week in my Reeboks, but otherwise I just wear them to work at the office. Not sure why they fall apart so easily.
In summary, the Realflex Scream 2.0 is my favorite shoe ever, but I wish it would hold together. I'm not sure it's the best shoe out there at this time.
