The shoe design and material is completely different and considering I had 5 pairs of the original version it took me a few days to adjust.
These felt lighter, they breathebetter, the flexibility and support are on point.
I do a lot of circuit training so the constant change in direction between vertical, lateral, forward and back are an everyday concern
for me, the original transition kept up< tore my knee up years back so training as hard as I used to is difficult>
These 5.0 kept me on spot. I felt confident cutting and jumping. As soon as you tie your feet into these shoes they stay tight and most of all, you really don't pay attention that they're on, very comfortable. I have nothing but good things to say about the shoe: great price, great quality product, great performance. Thank you Reebok!
