Release date: June 20, 2017
Price when reviewed: $140
Reebok’s DMX model was initially released back in 1997, during an era in which sportswear brands were becoming the hottest new labels in the fashion and retail industry. Fast forward to June 20, 2017, twenty years after the sneakers’ debut, a new and exciting iteration of the model was released in tribute: the DMX Run 10. Priced at only $140 a pair, it has since become as popular and highly-demanded as the original version.
In the footwear industry, no matter which market, versatility is the name of the game. A pair has to look good, feel good, and appropriate for any sort of event and activity. With these standards, Reebok’s DMX Run 10 sneakers pass with flying colors. Many customers have noted that the shoes are durable enough for any athletic endeavor, be it an extremely strenuous sport or a simple jog or exercise. Depending on the colorways—of which this model has plenty—the shoes are also as fashionable as they are highly-functional.
Comfort seems to be the weakest point of Reebok’s DMX Run 10. A common complaint surrounding the sneakers is that its fit is a tad too narrow, especially considering that this is a sports shoe. Comfort should be one of the utmost importance when it comes to any footwear, which makes for a concerning situation for the DMX Run 10. Additionally, it’s also common that these sneakers tend to get dirty easily, and that multiple washes may be necessary to keep it clean and in tip-top shape.
