Reebok All Terrain Supers are Super

Disclaimer: I was given these shoes free of charge.  All opinions are my own.

For the longest time i have always bought shoes and worried about not getting them dirty.  It didn't matter if if was for pleasure or for play,Until now.  I received a gift card Via Kelly Olexa a while back for Reebok. I was able to go in a design and customize my own shoe.  It is actually a pretty awesome and simple feature they have one the Reebok website.  You pick out the style of shoe you would like to design,  You can choose to make it completely your own or start with a base that you can tweak to your liking. They make the process fun and easy to use.

 I chose the All Terrain Super because I wanted a rugged shoe that I could get dirty and not worry about them falling apart like other shoes  have tried in the past. We live out in the country so there a lot of fields, canals, orchards and mud to run through.  I have worn these shoes for every workout in and out of the gym for the past month or so.  They have hit the treadmill weight room and beach.  U couldn't wait to get these bad boys wet and dirty.  My family recently spent a weekend in Pismo Beach.  I packed my running bag and couldn't wait to hit the beach with my running partner who happens to be my five year old daughter Karley.  We hit Grover Beach and two sets of stairs before we took off across the beach. We started out along the sand until we hit waters edge.  I was surprised at well they held up getting wet in water. We continued along the beach running in and out of the ocean water.  Going from being splashed with water to being completely submerged.  I was expecting them to loosen up or become uncomfortable when they got wet.  To my pleasant surprise this never happened.  One of the awesome features this All Terrain Super has is the water ports in the front of the shoe to allow the water to drain when the shoe is wet or gets muddy.  The only thing I did not like was that the sand seemed to settle in the front of the shoe and not get washed out with the water. The sand would build up under the front of my foot so I had to stop and rinse it out about half way through my run. Had an amazing time testing these shoes out on the beach.  One of the best things about the All Terrain Super is the easy clean up.  I took out the sock liner and just rinsed them off in the sink.  I set them out to dry Over night and by the next day they had dried out.  One of the thing i had experienced in the past is once my other shoes had dried up they began to fall apart.  They have held up and are just as good today as they where the first day I put them on my feet.

 I was able to test out another feature this past Saturday while I visited Yosemite National Park with my family was the underfoot rock guard.  I took the opportunity to climb up Bridal Veil falls. The Granite rock is slippery and jagged.  I didn't feel any of the sharper edges of the rocks through these shoes thanks to the underfoot rock guard.  I was a little worried about not having a hiking shoe on since we walked and hiked a bit.  I didn't feel any discomfort during the day at all. 

All in all I am very satisfied and impressed with Reeboks All Terrain Super. I would highly recommend this shoe to any one especially if you are into obstacle course running.  Next testing ground for them will be a Warrior Dash event in mid October.
