While we wait, let’s take a look.

Let’s start with the side profile – the Nano x is taller – specifically in the heel and tongue/collar.

Reebok Nano X - Side Profile
The Reebok Nano X has grown – it’s taller in the Tongue/Collar area.

The upper is “upgraded Flexweave” – it looks different than the original Flexweave.

It’s described as being a soft woven textile upper.

The upper (the part that covers your foot) uses upgraded Flexweave – it’s a soft, woven textile.

Reebok is claiming a “minimal drop outsole.” At the moment, I’m assuming that means it is unchanged from the Nano 9 at 4 millimeters.

(The “heel to toe drop”, “offset”, or “profile” all refer to the height difference between your heel and your toes.)

Heel to toe drop? Reebok is saying it’s "minimal" – we assume that means it is unchanged at 4mm.

Historically, running shoes often have a drop of 10mm or so – whereas training shoes typically go less for versatility.

Reebok claims the comfort is improved with the enhanced collar – that uses foam for comfort.

Improved collar uses high-density foam for comfort.

What’s on the inside?

Reebok is calling the shoe “runnable” – we assume that means MORE cushion than the Reebok Nano 9.

Reebok Nano X - Runnable?
The midsole should offer more cushion than the Nano 9 – Reebok is claiming it is "runnable".

How will this be accomplished?

Lightweight EVA foam cushioning is used, along with a compression molded midsole.

We won’t really know how cushioned it is (or isn’t) until we get hands on.

Having said all that, this is a cross trainer – so don’t expect pillow-like cushion – otherwise you couldn’t lift heavy with the barbell.

The outsole (or the sole) looks unchanged.

The outsole looks to be unchanged – which is OK – it works.

The meta-split is still there – that refers to the two piece construction.

If it’s anything like the Nano 9 it will be very flat, very grippy, and very tough.

Check back after 4/30 and we should have a full hands-on write up, including YouTube video review of the Nano X.

Reebok Nano X Now Available – In Summary
