If there's one thing the Watt brothers understand, it's training harder than everyone else—especially the competition. All three (J.J., Derek, and T.J.) play in the NFL. They're the definition of a football family, and they've been dominating the league since J.J. was selected by the Houston Texans in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
Neither J.J. nor his brothers have slowed down since. Now they've got a new addition to their fitness regimen to help them stay at the top of their game. Meet the Hydrorush, Reebok's newest—and arguably toughest —training shoe yet.
"[It's the] perfect shoe to train in because I can do any workout—from speed drills to lifting and agility—all in one shoe," says Derek Watt, a Reebok brand ambassador and fullback for the L.A. Chargers. And at less than $100 (it retails on reebok.com for just $80), the Hydrorush is a steal, considering its durability and high-tech components, like versatile traction (you won't slip, no matter the terrain on which you're training) and maximum foot security.
Here's everything you need to know about the Reebok Hydrorush. For more on how the Watt brothers train on and off the field, check out the video below:
A dual-density liquid foam technology adds cushion and unparalleled responsiveness to protect your joints, while a midfoot support cage provides all-around stability, Reebok says.
"What I’ve learned from my brothers is that what you see on the field is the result of the intense training off of it," says T.J. Watt, a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. "As a rookie this year, I’ve had to train harder than I ever had to before, and the Hydrorush is the perfect shoe for me to do this. It is breathable, lightweight, and a style that I can wear both in and out of the gym."
For a training shoe, the Hydrorush is about as sleek as you'll find. Available in two neutral, winter-ready colors (black and grey), these low-cut kicks look just as good in the gym as they do on the street.
You won't find yourself sliding around in these shoes—no matter where your workout takes you. Made from high-abrasion rubber, and featuring a multi-surface outsole, the Hydrorush provides traction that sticks and boosted durability.
