Editor’s Notes: The DMX Trail Hydrex was first teased in collaboration with XIMONLEE at Paris and Shanghai Fashion Weeks. It is the latest of a run of innovative sneakers by Reebok, putting anyone who questioned the brand in recent years into question themselves.

The DMX Trail Hydrex is part scuba boot part trail-runner and is single-handedly keeping the sock-sneaker trend alive. The hybrid shoe pairs the streamlined upper of a scuba boot with the classic split sole unit, making it chunky enough to offer support but with sleek neoprene finishings up top revitalizing it.

This is one of many Reebok’s recent boundary-pushing footwear that lays an incredible — and sometimes underrated — groundwork for the brand.
