The Reebok ZigTech Running Sneaker

As one of Reebok’s latest creation, the ZigTech looks like an odd shoe to be considered one of the best running sneakers of the moment. With a zig-zag sole that comes in the most striking colors you can imagine, it’s definitely not something that you’d go for right of the bat.

But on the other hand, the features that Reebok provides are quite compelling. Supposedly, they reduce the wear and tear in the muscle by up to 20%, making it possible for you to train harder and for longer.  They’ve worked very hard on the comfort you have while training.

All ZigTech models have a synthetic leather with a mesh upper which, together with the foam sole, make it super lightweight.

Reebok claims that everything they’ve done with this shoe was done to conserve and return energy to the athlete for a soft and springy ride. The unusual shape of the sole was not only for esthetic purposes, but rather because their engineers realized that a zigzag foam sole absorbs the impact of the heel strike much better and send a wave of energy along the length of the shoe. This last wave of energy is what sends that athlete forward.

From people who’ve actually tried them, they feel great on the feet, much better even than Nike Shox. That sound great for me, especially now that I realized I got out of shape and only can run half of what I used to not very long ago. Apparently, these shoes could do it for me.

The sneaker was launched back in February in Barcelona with a duel between Reebok’s two global ambassadors, Thierry Henry and Lewis Hamilton. They both put their fitness to the test by going head to head  in a training contest.

The ZigTech sneaker collection is available for both men and women in a wide range of bright and striking colors that will definitely make anyone stand out in the gym.

Reebok markets these shoes as “The Energy Drink for Your Feet”.  Hope they realy are as refreshing as they sound.
