Back in 2017, Reebok partnered with David Clark Company to produce a pair of Floatride Space Boots made specifically for a mission that shuttled astronauts to and from the ISS via Boeing‘s CST-100 Starliner. That same technology is found in its all-new Floatride Energy Argus X, a hybrid silhouette combining the convenience of laceless moulded uppers with the performance of the ultra-lightweight Floatride soles.

While bearing a visual resemblance to the YEEZY Foam Runner and other silhouettes that followed, the upcoming pairs arrive in a different build altogether, reimagining the traditional Floatride Energy X runners with a TPU shield on top that allows for a variety of lacing options.

According to Reebok, “Users will pull the laces and stretch them to any of the four shield hooks to increase how tight the shell encloses onto the foot, while also dictating the look of the shoe through different hook combinations.”

The rest of the silhouette is essentially a performance runner, defined by an offset tongue tag and slick padded uppers. Down below, the Floatride soles arch upwards towards the toe section and extend outwards from the heel for maximum energy return.

Offering additional context, “The lacing system for the Argus X was inspired by a hook system found on the Reebok Lokensock water shoe. This locking system reminded me of medieval armor and helmets and after investigating some of this medieval technology, the shield and hook system was developed. The lines and holes that create the shell are reference to the overlap between Reebok organic shaping found in late 90s and early 2000s running shoes, and the medieval helmets that helped inspire the lacing system itself,” writes Reebok.

Look for the Reebok Floatride Energy Argus X “Core Black” and three other colorways to release in the coming weeks via Reebok and select retailers.
