Two shoes in one get all your training needs done.
After a long baseball season, you deserve a break. But to keep your game fierce, you’ve got to get after it off the diamond, too. Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau knows that building leg strength during the off-season is important, and he gears up in a pair of kicks he trusts—Reebok’s new SmoothFit SelectRide.
This cross-trainer switches from running mode to training mode with the push of a button [located on the side of the shoe]. In running mode, the shoe adapts for longer distances by providing 20 percent more cushioning. In training mode, it keeps the soles of the feet lower to the ground, so it’s firmer and offers better support for lateral motion.
The system is based on the original Reebok Pump, which is now located by the heel, so you can pump air into the shoe with each step you take.
