The Reebok ATV 19 – Take a Lug at These

The Reebok ATV 19 Running Shoes

No, it’s not April Fool’s Day.

I haven’t seen these shoes in the flesh – and I’m not sure I want to… but what we have here is the ATV 19, due to be released 1st February 2013. Barefoot runners – Look away now.


Can you milk these udders?
No – This is the Reebok ATV 19

According to Bill McInnis, Head of Advanced Innovation at Reebok, the ATV 19 is named after an ‘All Terrain Vehicle’. The shoes come with 19 huge lugs that work independently giving traction. The lugs are bevelled at a 28-degree angle to keep you stable and supported. They have a durable toe bumper and heel-kick with ballistic mesh on the top.


“Coming in to Land:
February 2013

Now I really don’t know what to make of these shoes. Are they practical for running? Could you achieve any PB’s in these machines? Do we need giant nipples for traction? Will we see these shoes with a ‘90% OFF’ clearance sticker at the bottom of a bargain bin in months to come? Feel free to comment – I am interested in how other runners perceive these beasts.


The Reebok ATV 19 screams “Lug at me!”

Can the Reebok AT 19 also be used as a phone?

  1. I honestly can’t figure out what running “problem” a shoe like this would solve. They really don’t look very stable either!

  2. Cheers James. Yeah, regarding stability I can’t see them holding up. I’d expect them to roll and have a jelly-like effect. Then again – I could be completely wrong! Only time will tell.
