Over the last year, Reebok has seen some major changes. On the basketball front, there’s been a shift to a more retro-based approach, and recently they unveiled a brand new logo, effectively retiring the nearly three-decade old Vector emblem.
Despite these changes, the brand has never gotten away from their roots of cranking out high performance running and training models. The latest innovation comes in the form of the ZQuick line, which is offered in both runner and trainer form. Today, we’ll break down the runner version.
Inspired by the smooth handling of sports cars, the Reebok ZQuick is built with a sleek, no-sew mesh upper and features a supportive Nanoweb overlay. This means that you’ll get all the airy breathability of open mesh while retaining protective support in all the necessary areas.
Down low, the Z-Rated technology outsole takes its inspiration from high performance tires and makes use of a unique tread for optimum traction on a wide variety of surfaces. Not only does this design add traction, but improves responsiveness and brings the runner closer to the ground. It’s also enhanced with CRTek high abrasion rubber for plenty of durability without adding bulky weight.
