Updates to Z Dual Rush 2.0

Reebok uses the Fusion Fit technology for the first time in the Dual Rush series in this 2nd edition. Reebok fans will know that this is a sturdy heel cage that really provides a good and secure fit in the heel. It gives nice support and enhances the comfort of the shoe.

Adding comfort is provided by making the midsole a bit softer. Reebok made the cushioning more padded and a bit more cushioned than the past version to deliver that plush feel.

The substantial overlay in the forefoot found in the original model has been removed. It helped the new model reduce weight and gives added room in an otherwise very snug forefoot.

The tire-like treads in the outsole get slight modification as well for added traction and durability. This will allow runners even better grip on the road and a long-lasting performance.

Z Dual Rush 2.0 size and fit

The fit and sizing characterizing the original version is evident in the Reebok Z Dual Rush 2.0. Like the previous model, this one has a narrow fit from the heel to the forefoot, which bodes well for narrow or medium footed runners. With this kind of fit, runners are still advised to get half a size up to get the best features of this shoe. Sizes are from 6 to 14 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s. The available widths are the standard D for the men’s and B for the women’s.

Outsole

CRTek is Reebok’s own rubber compound that enhances the durability of the outsole, particularly in high-impact areas. It uses tire-like treads to deliver very nice hold on different road surfaces. The use of an outsole resembling tire treads also allows for very nice handling, especially when doing quick turns or change of directions. Reebok uses flex grooves to give the shoe an element of flexibility.

Midsole

An industry-grade dual-density midsole offers decent responsive cushioning in the Z Dual Rush 2.0. The softer foam is just above the outsole to serve as the main cushioning layer while the harder foam sits on top of it for a stable and better platform during the gait cycle. Reebok’s Z-rated geometry in the midsole works in tandem with the outsole to limit the impact upon landing.

Upper

A lightweight mesh makes the shoe very breathable while overlays on the medial and lateral sides provide structure and support, especially in the midfoot. An Ortholite Sockliner enhances step-in feel and support with fantastic anti-microbial properties. The interior of the shoe is covered with soft fabric for added excellent next-to-skin feel. A heel tap makes entry and exit efficient and hassle-free.
