REEBOK NANO X1 REVIEW

THE BUZZ

In its 11th version of the training shoe, the Reebok Nano X1 is back and better than ever! This year Reebok took a step away from its cross-training roots to create the new – Shoe of Fitness. We tested the Nano X1 during strength and cardio workouts to see how it measured up. 

Reebok Nano X1 Review

WHAT’S NEW

Reebok Nano X1 changes make it a more well-rounded shoe. It can be used for light lifts, training classes, and light cardio work

The Nano X1 feels like a feather compared to the previous version dropping 2 oz from the Nano X. Nano X1 moves quickly during tempo and interval training.

Reebok added 4mm of drop more well-rounded High-Intensity Interval Training shoe. The new stack height aids in getting into a better position for squatting.

Reebok bumped the cushioning with its new running-based Floatride Energy foam. Use these on your next HIIT or sprint session without sacrificing comfort.

FIT, FEEL, RIDE

The curved heel on the Nano X1 & added cushioning provides a “locked-in” impression when setting up to squat. The Nano X1 flex weave knit upper makes the Nano X feel sluggish in comparison.

The Nano’s has a wide toe box making it true to size. If you enjoy a little extra room, go a half size up.

Nano X1 Review

WHO IT’S BEST FOR

The Nano X1 is the best overall fitness shoe on the market right now. If you need a shoe that is up for any workout, this is the style for you.

Runners who like to combine running with plyometric training will love this shoe because of the added running-friendly features such as float ride foam and added stack height.

Orange Theory-type workouts and gym class enthusiasts will love having the Nano X1 in their lineup. The lighter feel might even give you the edge you need to make the leaderboard.

Nano X1 Review Pros

PROS: REEBOK NANO X1

One of the best aspects of the Nano X1 is its weight. The Nano X1 is lighter than most training shoes on the market.

The added stack height and Reebok’s flex weave tech make it the most runnable version and a very versatile shoe for athletes with a variety of workout types and intensities on their schedule.

Nano X1 Review Cons

CONS: REEBOK NANO X1

The shoe’s collar height and rigidity may cause some issues if you are a low-profile sock fan. We recommend pairing these with some high cushion running sock-like Balega.

MIZUNO WAVE INSPIRE 17 REVIEW

THE BUZZ

The Mizuno Wave Inspire has always been a durable, stability-enhancing shoe built with a good blend of comfort, shock absorption and support. The Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 is a mid-weight everyday trainer with remarkable cushioning, a plush step-in feel, semi-firm support and exceptional breathability.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 Reivew

WHAT’S NEW

The Wave Inspire 17 has been overhauled since last year. The changes are all good, starting with the addition of the new ENERZY foam wedge under the heel. ENERZY is a durable midsole compound that delivers excellent softness and rebound.

The ENERZY midsole foam below the Wave plate is 17 percent softer and returns 15 percent more energy than previous midsole compounds. This gives the shoe a smoother transition after the heel impacts the ground. A slab of lightweight, resilient U4ic foam remains on top of the Wave plate and the combination of all of it.This results in optimal shock reduction, long-lasting durability and a smoother ride.

Other updates include a semi-malleable TPU fan-shaped Wave plate in the midsole for softer stability. Also, it features a new lightweight engineered mesh upper for a cleaner look, better fit and enhanced breathability.

Another small but significant update is the addition of more ground contact in the outsole. There’s full ground contract from heel to toe under the medial side of the shoe. A slightly wider footprint, vertical decoupling in the middle of the heel and three small flex grooves under the forefoot all play key roles in the balance and stability of this shoe.

FIT, FEEL, RIDE

The Wave Inspire has always had a soft, comfortable and secure fit. That remains for the 17th edition, only slightly better this time around.

It fits true to size and secure with a medium width and interior volume throughout, only with a slightly more snug feeling in the toe box than some similar shoes. (It’s available in two widths for men and women.)

The step-in feel is comfortable and plush, with notable cushiness along the footbed, under the tongue and around the heel collar.

The ride has been dramatically improved in this version of the Wave Inspire. The shoe has designed to be softer and smoother without losing its penchant for performance. 

Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 Reivew

WHO IT’S BEST FOR

The Wave Inspire 17 is designed to be a workhorse trainer for overpronating runners who need a bit of support. It’s a great shoe for long runs, recovery runs and moderately fast tempo runs.

New runners will love the uplifting stability in every stride. Experienced runners will appreciate that support in the final miles of a long run. It might not be the best choice for a half marathon or marathon. However, it’s certainly a great training tool that can help get you to race day.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 Reivew

PROS: MIZUNO WAVE INSPIRE 17

The chassis gets its stable feeling from a softer fan-shaped Wave plate embedded in the medial side of the midsole, a secure heel counter and supportive overlays on each side of the upper.

For many years, the Inspire was a performance-oriented everyday trainer with a distinctly firm feeling under foot. Even though it always had a soft, plush interior, the Wave Inspire was on the stiffer end of the spectrum and, as a result, heel-toe transitions felt quite rigid. But this year’s version has a softer, more flexible and more energetic demeanor.

The exquisite, double-layered engineered mesh upper incorporates Waveknit technology with an embossed Mizuno logo. This mesh contributes to the fit, hold and lateral support of the shoe. The relatively low-volume fit in the forefoot gives the shoe an important-oriented feel. 

The bottom line? Mizuno has made this shoe more accessible to more runners, more comfortable and more fun to wear out on a run. And if that’s not a good reason to check it out, what else do you need?

Mizuno Wave Inspire 17 Reivew

CONS: MIZUNO WAVE INSPIRE 17

The Inspire 17 is slightly heavier and not quite as cushy compared to some of its contemporaries among everyday stability trainers.

GIFT GUIDE: TOP MEN’S ATHLEISURE WEAR

Whether you’re lounging on the couch, exploring the great outdoors, or (safely!) embarking on some urban adventures, refreshing your wardrobe with top men’s athleisure wear is a great way to stay comfy and stylish this winter.

Check out top athleisure wear for men on JackRabbit.com – they make great gifts for the guys on your list, and they also are great for treating yourself!

Take a look as resident style guru Chase walks us through three of his favorite athleisure outfits for the season.

Chase standing out in the Sand Dunes national park with text saying 'my top athleisure outfits by chase hawes'

Hi there, I’m Chase, the creative director at JackRabbit.  Aside from being creative in front of my (three!!) monitors all day, I love having fun with my wardrobe and putting together fun and fashionable looks.  Athleisure is having a big moment, and as someone who enjoys some outdoor activity and (a lot) of downtime relaxing, it’s the perfect mix of modern style and couch-to-outdoor comfort.

I love mixing my personal pieces and jewelry with high-quality athleisure gear to create unique looks that express my personality.  I’ve put together three looks I love, and have plenty of recommendations for gear that you or that special guy on your list are sure to love.  I hope you find some inspiration!

A Pop of Color!

For obvious reasons, those of us at JackRabbit LOVE the color red!  There’s a lot of red gear out this season, and I’ve used it to add some head-to-toe pops of color in my fun and cozy outfit.

For starters, I’ve grabbed a red Adidas beanie from my personal (and very large, I might add) collection of hats, and I’ve layered a long-sleeve Rhone shirt with red sleeve details over a bright red Alo yoga hoodie. 

two stacked photos of chase with his arms crossed showing the color details of the sleeves, and one of him unzipping the red nike hip pack

I’ve slipped into some super comfortable heather grey Vuori Ponto Performance pants (and cuffed them, because I’m short!).  Add in a red Nike Heritage Hip pack, and a bright red pair of the Nike Infinity React, and we’re ready to roll!

A Cozy Autumn Look

Fall is my favorite season – the temperatures begin to drop (great for my love of layering), the leaves change colors, a nice hot cup of tea every morning, and the occasional firing up of the fireplace.

I’ve started with (yet another) Adidas beanie from my collection in a burgundy color, and paired it with a fall-colored On Weather Jacket, layered over a cozy heather white tee from my closet.  I’ve added a pair of dark charcoal gray Vuori Sunday Performance joggers, and my personal favorite sneakers, the On Cloudflow 2.0 in a fun fall colorway. Granted, they’re next to me on the couch – don’t want sneakers on my table! So I’ve got on a cozy pair of JackRabbit No Show Tab socks as well.

two photos side by side - one of the On cloudflow sneakers, and one of the chest detail of the On weather jacket

I’ve thrown on some of my personal gold jewelry, and we’re on our way!  I recently wore this outfit out to the Sand Dunes National Park here in Colorado, but I also love to wear it lounging around the house cuddled up with a good book.

A Warm Winter Wardrobe

It’s getting cold out there!  However, it’s still a great time to be outdoors – and you can layer up and be stylish at the same time.

I’ve started with (you guessed it – an Adidas beanie!) in a muted orange color that I picked up from my local Boulder Running Company store, and paired it with a modern Nike graphic tee.  

two photos side by side - one is a detail shot of the Terra Kiger shoes and the other is a back view of the hood of the jacket detail

I’ve layered a New Balance Heat Tech jacket on top, slipped into some warm and sturdy Rhone Guru Pants, and paired it with a seasonally-colored pair of the Nike Terra Kiger 6 trail shoes – great for hitting your local trails or crunching leaves in the city.

Be Yourself!

I love to mix brands, colors, styles, and gear from my closet with hot new gear from JackRabbit – and I feel like I’m comfortable, stylish, and putting my unique style and personality on full display (even when it’s just me at home alone – remember to socially distance!) I highly recommend these pieces and many more we have available – either spruce up your own wardrobe, or get some great gifts for the guys on your list who value being cozy and stylish at the same time.  They’ll be sure to love it.

Happy lounging!

NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM X COLLECTION

NEW BALANCE – FRESH FOAM X

by BRIAN METZLER  | APRIL 2020

THE NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM X

There are a lot of components in a running shoe, but, in most cases, none is as notable as the foam midsole under your foot. If you have run in a few pairs of running shoes over the last few years, you’ll know that not all midsole
foams are made the same. But that’s not how it used to be.

From the mid-1970s (when running shoes were first built with layers of cushioning between the outsole and the footbed) until about 2010, most running shoes
featured a standard form of ethylene vinyl acetate, aka, EVA, which offered a moderate level of softness but not much resiliency, no matter what size the runner was or how their feet landed on the ground. Yes, some shoes used air
and gel packets and others had polyurethane inserts, but the main cushioning compound was typically EVA foam.

But then a midsole revolution started in 2010-2014 with several new types of foam—including Fresh Foam from
New Balance, Boost from Adidas and RMAT from Hoka, among others—that offered both plush cushioning and energetic rebound. 

The updated Fresh Foam X midsole foam is a modern version of EVA, a uniquely formulated compound injection molded in a heat press. It can be morphed to create single-layer midsole platforms that are either more or less supportive. The new formulation is softer, lighter,
livelier and can flex more dynamically than traditional EVA, so it can match or counteract the natural flex patterns of a runner’s feet.

New Balanced used data recorded from thousands of runners, and their engineers
and designers created concave and convex sidewall patterns and implemented laser engraving to alter levels of compression and resistance under impact as needed for either neutral or stability shoes. 

THE NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM COLLECTION

There are a whole range of running shoe styles from New Balance featuring the Fresh Foam X midsole cushioning. From the classic, neutral-oriented 1080, the
lightweight, low-to-the-ground Tempo, the rugged and durable Hierro trail shoe, the maximally cushioned More, and the lightest of the Fresh Foam collection, the . 

Read on to learn which style in the New Balance Fresh
Foam X Collection is right for you. 

NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM 1080 v9

Weights: 9.5 ounces (men’s size 9.0); 7.9 oz. (women’s size 7.0)
Heel-Toe Offset: 8mm (30mm heel, 22mm forefoot)

The Buzz: The luxuriously appointed, neutral-oriented New Balance 1080 trainer
is built for high-mileage training. This year’s edition has a new upper and a completely renovated midsole design with the softer, cushier and more energetic Fresh Foam X midsole foam. The new Hypoknit mesh upper is softer and stretchier
than the previous models and has fewer overlays, but it secures the foot better than previous editions.

New Balance didn’t rest on its laurels with one of its top-selling flagship shoes after 10 years. Instead, it broke the
mold and updated this premium high-mileage, neutral cruiser into a masterwork model that is lighter, has a better fit, feels more energetic and has a more striking appearance. The 10th edition of the 1080 the epitome of cutting-edge, data-driven
design, both for performance and aesthetics.

In a nutshell, the latest version of the New Balance 1080 has a more supportive fit, is much softer under
foot and serves up a much bouncier ride.

NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM TEMPO

Weights: 8.5 ounces (men’s size 9.0); 6.4 oz. (women’s size 7.0)
Heel-Toe Offset: 6mm (24mm heel, 18mm forefoot)

The Buzz: The Tempo is a new model made with a data-to-design Fresh Foam X midsole to deliver responsive all-day comfort. The sleek, Hypoknit upper is constructed of performance-oriented engineered mesh with embroidery for a tuned, secure fit that offers
soft yet strategic support from heel to forefoot. 

The New Balance Tempo is a lightweight, low-profile shoe which carries over some of the agility and liveliness
of the Zante line. It features New Balance’s new trace fiber upper stitching—a similar look (and support function) to the 1080 v10—with a faster vibe geared for quick-cadence workouts. It can be an everyday trainer for advanced runners
or performance trainer for others.

NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM MORE v2

Weights: 9.6 ounces (men’s size 9.0); 8.0 oz. (women’s size 7.0)
Heel-Toe Offset: 4mm (34mm heel, 30mm forefoot)

The Buzz: The New Balance Fresh Foam More v2 features the most amount of Fresh Foam X cushioning underfoot and delivers a soft, pillowy underfoot feel. A lightweight engineered mesh upper in combination with a 3D molded Ultra heel provides a reliably locked-down fit, arguably the
most stable ride among maximal shoes on the market. To reduce weight while maintaining a smooth ride, the More v2 features Fresh Foam X midsole foam with flex grooves in the forefoot and laser engravings on the lateral landing zone. 

The second edition of the Fresh Foam More serves up a softer and smoother ride. Although the Fresh Foam More is a neutral shoe, the midsole foam has
been engineered to be slightly firmer on the medial side and slightly more pliable on the lateral side to over a bit of stability for runners who mildly overpronate.

Only a few road running shoes have ever had this much plush
cushioning under foot. (The Hoka Bondi and Altra Duo are a few comparably cushioned shoes.) But unlike some high off-the-ground maximally cushioned shoes, the Fresh Foam More serves up a secure and stable ride without any side-to-side
wobbling.

NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM HIERRO v5

Weights: 11.3 ounces (men’s size 9.0); 9.4 oz. (women’s size 7.0)
Heel-Toe Offset: 8mm (32mm heel, 24mm forefoot)

The Buzz: The New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro v5 delivers data-driven cushioning for off-road running, and it’s got one of the hottest looks of any shoe on the market. With a cushy and stable Fresh Foam X midsole and a grippy, Vibram Megagrip outsole, the reconfigured Hierro can tackle
moderate to intense terrain with aplomb. It offers trail-specific agility and protection and road-shoe comfort.

Whoever says it doesn’t matter what your trail running shoes look like haven’t worn the latest edition of the Fresh
Foam Hierro. This shoe is lit, and we’re not just talking about the eye-catching paint-splatter graphics package.

The updated version has a soft, gusseted tongue, an improved durable, mesh TPU-coated upper and a more secure
heel that helps ensure a locked-down fit and the inside of the shoe debris-free, while a reinforced toe bumper keeps your piggies safe.

And yes, we love the slick paint job, too.

NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM 880 v10 

Weights: 10.3 ounces (men’s size 9.0); 8.9 oz. (women’s size 7.0)
Heel-Toe Offset: 10mm (28mm heel, 20mm forefoot)

The Buzz: The Fresh Foam 880v10 is an amazing rejuvenation of one of the most beloved performance silhouettes in the New Balance line. Updated with Fresh Foam X midsole foam technology to deliver durable, long-lasting cushioning with smoothness and responsiveness, it’s
a durable, energetic everyday trainer capable of running long or running fast.

A lightweight-yet-secure, stretchy Hypoknit mesh upper delivers a comfortable fit and breathable support without any hassles. The soft, engineered
mesh upper snugly wraps the top of the foot, providing a secure fit while allow the foot to move and flex uninhibitedly at high speeds. Meanwhile, the supportive midsole utilizes luxuriously soft Fresh Foam X cushioning for an ultimate
underfoot feel. The data-driven foam cushioning is engineered for precision comfort, providing an ultra-cushioned ride that’s ready to be your high-mileage workhorse.

Although it’s a neutral shoe constructed without medial posts,
the 880’s wider footprint helps give it inherent side-to-side stability. Two large horizontal full-length grooves on the outsole, coupled with a honeycomb pattern and blown rubber under the forefoot, give the 1080v10 a smooth ride with a peppy demeanor.
