After The Revolution: Fall 2012 Running Shoe Review

Reebok RealFlex Flight, $110

10.0 oz.; 8.0 oz.

Fit: The RealFlex Flight serves up a snug fit from heel to toe, with a smidge of extra room in the toebox. Our testers said the soft, seamless interior and reinforced micromesh upper provides reliable foot hold for a wide variety of foot shapes.

Feel: Stepping into this shoe reveals its somewhat split personality. Although it has a rather robust, supportive rearfoot section, its snug fit and low-to-the-ground forefoot give the Flight a natural, agile feeling.

Ride: With the unique blend of rearfoot support and the multi-directional flexibility in the low-slung forefoot, the Flight offers up both a stable and dynamic ride. Our test team was unanimous in thinking the shoe ran lighter than it felt, which is the result of a combination of a lightweight upper, an unrestrictive flex pattern and the profile low enough for ground connection.
