Introducing the next generation of high-performance referee shoes: The Reaction Referee VX1 or “REF VX1.” At only 8 ounces, this revolutionary officiating shoe is feather weight and features a wear-resistant, easily polished 100% ventilated patent leather construction that makes it a winning call for the basketball or volleyball referee with an eye on comfort and durability.
The REF VX1’s lightweight, compression-molded EVA midsole has been specifically designed to reduce the knee and joint stress associated with prolonged standing and running. The low-profile, flat bottom, non-marking outsole is purpose built for indoor sports, and its memory foam insole and midsole keep you at pace when gliding back and forth on the basketball or volleyball court.
Beyond its unrivalled comfort, this is a referee shoe that truly stands in a class of its own when it comes to durability. In surface peeling and tear strength testing, its revolutionary Micro Fabric genuine leather upper far outlasts competing brands. It also tops the charts in flex resistance which allows for fluid movement with no ill effects or discomfort for the feet.
