Reebok Medallion DMX10 £79.99

Evaluation On the one hand, it’s a shame that Reebok’s DMX shoes look so big and chunky. On the other hand, it’s a reasonable reflection of the type of runner they’re best suited to. The moving-air cushioning system that Reebok has kept for five years (10 interconnected chambers in the
Medallion, six in the similar £70 Allure DMX) has a unique feel and good durability, but it’s stiff, and for light- to midweight runners, doesn’t allow a smooth ride. We’d love to be more positive, and the shoes do get a little better each year (this summer’s has a more durable outsole, for instance), but the reality is that there are an awful lot of other good shoes on the market, and even our 15-stone-plus testers find it hard to get excited by these.
In short The Medallion DMX10 is the best DMX10 shoe Reebok has made. Unfortunately, that’s not saying too much unless you’re a big runner who values meaty shock absorption and a heavy upper over flexibility.
Try it on if you liked Reebok Icon 10 DMX (£90); Reebok Fusion C (£100); New Balance 1040 (£80)
