If you don’t have running shoes, look at your other shoes. First look at your other athletic shoes. If you don’t have any athletic shoes, then look at your casual shoes. Most shoes will have a moderate heel-to-toe drop, which simply suggests you avoid trail runners that are at or near the 0mm and the 12mm ends of the spec range. If you wear flats or flip-flops all the time, then low-drop shoes might be fine.

The laces and lack of eyelets conspire with the absence of stability to provide very poor motion control for the foot, greatly undermining their whole reason for existing as an off-road shoe for OCRs. Using eyestays vs. eyelets means the laces have less area to cinch across the top of your foot; a few miles in as the cordura stretches, and the TPU laces stretch, your wet feet start to slide around – especially in the heel. A second top eyelet and a slightly deeper heel cup would go a long way to fixing this problem (see how Reebok uses “Adaptive Fit” in the closest neighbor to the All Terrain Super OR, the All Terrain Thrill) and provide lateral control – not lateral stability to support the foot – but control to keep the heel of the shoe right where it belongs, directly attached to your heel. In my experience, the All Terrain Super OR failed miserably here. No matter how tight I cranked the laces down, if I stopped quickly and changed direction, my heel slipped more in the OR’s than any other shoe I’ve recently tested.

I really wanted to like these shoes, and I do – just not as much as I’d hoped. The water drainage is unbeatable, and they are a great shoe for trail run training or most outdoor activities. Comfortable and light, the Reebok All Terrain Super OR’s are a great racing flat for non-technical terrain, they are the best possible kicks for a groomed trail 5k by far.

Stability: None. Let’s be real; the upper is just there to keep the shoe on your feet and prevent debris from building up – which it does well – and you can’t expect it to provide any lateral stability at all. The midsole appears to have a small amount of recess to cradle your heel, but a very small amount. When you’re running straight ahead (think road running) this is great as most runners don’t need it, but when you’re cutting on turf or zig-zagging on technical terrain, stability is a requirement, and the All Terrain OR doesn’t come close to checking this box.

Mud Run Guide has reviewed some Reebok OCR shoes, just not me personally, Eric Acuna tested out the All Terrain Super two years ago, and I wasn’t all that thrilled with the 2.0 versions I ran 10k at The Battlegrounds last year while setting up the Summer Splash course. I didn’t review ’em, just gave the borrowed pair back to Brian Chumbler, but he’d already made the switch to Icebugs.

While they are good in all categories except stability/ground control, the All Terrain Super OR’s really shine when it comes to water drainage and absolutely dominate this category. With the right socks and no tiny pebbles clogging up the water ports in the midsole, it’s nearly impossible to keep any water in your shoes for more than a few steps out of the mud pit.

I didn’t bother reviewing the Reebok Supers or the Super 2.0’s as Eric covered it in his review, and I barely noticed a difference between the models. Frankly, I was pretty “meh” on the whole experience as they both seemed like the same floppy shoes that had great drainage, good traction, but felt like a slipper with not even a drop of stability or support that could fall off my feet at any second. They were “ok” but in my mind were behind the models we were seeing from Inov8, Salomon, and Icebug. I’m not entirely sure I was entirely fair in that assessment, so I wanted to make sure to give the new Reebok All Terrain Super OR my full attention, and test from every angle I could before giving my opinion… here goes:

Men’s trail running shoes should always feature an outsole that provides aggressive grip on challenging surfaces—think loose dirt, gravel and rocky terrain. Some come with deep lugs, which help you take on mud and slick ground.

If you want to experience hiking trails in a new way or you’re an urban runner who wants to vary the routine, the siren call of trail running is hard to ignore. Before you head for the hills, though, you need shoes that are specifically built to venture beyond the pavement. Trail-running shoes differ from road runners in several respects:

Choosing shoes starts by assessing the type of trails you plan to run on. Make your best guess at this point: If you run regularly, a new pair of shoes will have a life expectancy of four to six months, which is another way of saying that the opportunity to try alternatives won’t be far off.

Cushioning level, sometimes referred to as “stack height,” remained largely unchanged for many years until shoes with no padding whatsoever revolutionized the industry. A few years after that, a counter trend arose when shoes with massively cushioned midsoles hit the market.

Weight: At 7.6 oz. (in a men’s size 9 and 6.4 oz. in women’s size 7, there’s no doubt they are one of the lightest off-road shoes possible while still retaining any good tread depth and midfoot protection. Reebok could probably eschew the “midfoot teeth” that the OR’s have in common with much of their CrossFit Speed line for rope climbing – but of course that’s a big selling point with these shoes and quite possibly the most substantial part of their structure. Cutting anything out of the shoe is obviously pointless, there’s no real cushioning to get rid of, and they are already extremely light & flexible.

As with all the shoe reviews, I test them in multiple different sports so you get the biggest bang for your buck. At writing, the Reebok All Terrain OR’s are priced at $124, so unless you intend to invest in these only for OCR use you should have an idea how they fare for other outdoor sports. I test each pair as spikes for indoor soccer on field turf, softball, golf, and trail running – as well as out on the OCR course. Please note: One are my reviews are lacking is long-term wear testing; the reviews are up after 2-3 weeks of testing in various conditions, and I’ll update the review here if they start wearing quickly after further use.

For all-around outdoor wear, these are amazingly comfortable, light, breathable, and provide plenty of traction. For training and sprints on trails or turf, they perform exceptionally well with just enough cushioning to make the experience less jarring if you happen to heel-strike. Softball, golf, trail running, or any activity where sharp lateral movements aren’t necessary are a perfect place for the All Terrain Super OR. Alternatively, soccer, football, rugby, or even drills that require quick changes of direction are pretty much out due to the wishy-washy ground control as these just don’t lock my heel into place to provide proper footing when you plant & turn.
