Reebok Men’s Boxing Boot-Buck Sneaker Review
I follow my favorite boxers as they punch those punches in all their matches one of my favorite is Floyd Mayweather.
Who doesn’t love this boxer?
I could not help but notice that May Weather the champion loves the Reebok Boxing Book Buck sneaker how else you can explain him wearing these boots in many of his matches and training. To be honest, I was one of the people who hoped that Reebok would bow to the pressure and make them public and when the brand did just that, I was among the first people to buy the Reebok boots. They did not disappoint. They win my best boxing shoe award hands down. Here are my review and the reasons why they are the best.
How To Choose Reebok Men’s Boxing Boot-Buck Sneaker
If you want to train hard and run harder, you will need a comfortable shoe. No matter how good you are, you will need a comfortable boxing shoe. There is nothing as bad as wearing a good shoe and being overwhelmed by moisture build up. The Reebok Boxing Buck sneaker has vented mash on the top, front and sides of the shoe allowing for more breathability. The upper, breathable fabric also ensures you are feet are comfortable, the inner cushioning also provides extra comfort.
If you plan to fight the best shoes are the ones with laces that run up high your foot and those with upper wrapping are even better. They give you ankle support and stability. The Reebok shoes are mid cut and have an extra strap at the middle part of the shoe that is a lock in which provides extra stability. The extra strap tightens the shoe below the ankle to give you foot support and confidence in your footwork.
When I go to purchase a boxing shoe, I want it to last especially if because I will buy it with my hard earned money. I do not want the shoe wearing out after a few days of being in the ring. Thus the shoe should be made of a durable material. I also want the material to be flexible such that it is not too loose but supports my feet well while still giving me flexibility for better movement.
The upper part of the Reebok Boot-Buck boxing shoe is made from synthetic leather material making it one the most durable shoe I owe. The material also feels very soft on my feet making it a comfortable shoe even when I am in the ring. The outer sole is made of rubber enhancing the durability of the sole.
There is little correlation between the cost of different boxing shoes and their quality. High prices are often due to the materials used on the shoes. For instance, shoes made with a lot of leather are more expensive compared to shoes made with a lot of synthetic materials. Therefore, if you are looking for a good boxing shoe at an affordable price, you will probably get it.
The Reebok Boot Buck sneaker is one such shoe. Compared to rival brands offering the same type of shoe they are way cheaper. Thus, you can afford this shoe especially now as it is available in stores due to the shoe’s increased popularity and demand.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I wear these shoes on a regular day out?

Do they run true to the size?
Yes, they do. Order or purchase your right shoe size because unlike some boxing shoes that run a size smaller or larger the Reebok Boot-Buck boots are a perfect size.
Can you use these shoes to train on a hard surface such as gravel?
Yes, you can. The boots are very durable and can withstand hard conditions including working out on grass, dirt or a hard surface. However, don’t make it a habit as the sole might wear out fast.
