Summary

We spent 4.2 hours reading reviews from experts and users. In summary, this is what runners think:

The good

  • Plush comfort is abundantly provided by the ZJet, according to the remarks of a large number of runners.

  • Luxurious cushioning without sapping the runner’s energy is almost normal part of comments from several runners.

  • 4 color combinations that should take care of the fashion needs of runners.

  • The Reebok ZJet has sufficient traction on road surfaces, as noted by a few runners.

  • It has surprisingly good ground feedback due to the low forefoot height.

  • The fit was just adequate for some runners who tested it.

The bad

  • The ZJet is definitely not for those looking for a lightweight option.

  • Others have observed that it is a bit clunky as a result of the significant weight.

  • It has a slightly expensive price.

Bottom line

Comfort and plush cushioning come in spades in the Reebok ZJet at the expense of weight. While it has good arch support and superb cushioning for daily trainings, the substantial weight might hinder performance.

    They are light, fast, and provide a great amount of support for bad arches or overpronation.

    If something, they’re snugger than my last combine of trainers that were Adidas, same size.

Updates to ZJet

The unique look of the Reebok Zjet is actually fueled by its interesting, but effective components. This running shoe is able to propel the runner forward because of the presence of a cushioning system that uses compressed air. It makes the underfoot experience more responsive and more comfortable.

The upper unit of this running shoe is durable and it delivers sure security to the foot of the wearer. It bends along with the foot, making the coverage more attuned to how the foot flexes and goes through the gait cycle. The low-cut design permits more natural movement, especially since the ankles are able to twist more freely.

The cushioning system of this running shoe uses foam and air pods. The foam unit is the one that’s right up against the wearer’s foot. It’s plush and responsive, so the underfoot experience is very adequate. The air pods are placed right below the foam platform. They give a more propelled lift because the air-filled spaces add some bounciness to the stride.

The outsole unit of the Reebok Zjet doesn’t shortchange the runner when it comes to the material that’s used to cover it. A high quality rubber that’s very resilient against abrasion shields the air pods from damage. It’s also able to deliver sure traction over the surfaces.

ZJet size and fit

The Reebok Zjet is true to its size. The men and women’s versions follow the regular measurements when it comes to length. The available width is medium, so it accommodates the runner who has a medium sized foot. Its semi-curved shape follows the natural curvature of the human foot, thus allowing the runner to acclimate well into it.

Outsole

The outsole unit of this running shoe uses the CRTek technology, a rubber material that is highly resistant to wear and abrasion. It’s a high quality rubber that’s made to deliver durable protection to the sole unit. Traction is also afforded by this layer of protection because it is able to hold onto the ground well.

Midsole

The ZJet technology is a full-length system that uses air to propel the runner forward. Air is actually compressed into pods that act as part of the mid-sole system. When landing the foot on the ground, this unit resists impact shock. When lifting the foot, it delivers explosiveness to the performance.

The 3D IMEVA is a responsive, but lightweight foam that gives the foot a plush feeling when performing. It cushions the foot during impact and even bends along with it, making sure that the comfort felt is consistent.

Upper

The JetFuse Technology in the upper unit combines a breathable mesh material and synthetic overlays, making a singular unit that’s lightweight and flexible. It does away with unnecessary stitching, so a seamless coverage would be felt.

The NanoWeb heel counter locks the rear of the foot in place and prevents accidental shoe removal. It supports the foot so that it stays in the shoe at all times.

The mesh-lined tongue and collar gives comfort to the skin of the runner. The smooth fabric prevents skin irritation, so it is viable to wear this shoe without socks.
