Durable underfoot coverage with the Reebok Driftium outsole

For many running shoes, carbon rubber is a go-to material to create a durable underfoot outer coverage, and the Reebok Driftium is no exception to it. The shoe’s outsole possesses a high-abrasion quality, which makes it expectedly sturdy and long-lasting.

Efficient shock absorption with the Reebok Driftium midsole

The ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam utilized in the midsole of the Driftium guarantees the optimum-level cushioning to comfortably pad the foot and support long-distance running with ease. Though simple and not as technology-laden as those of other running shoes, the midsole of the Driftium effectively provides shock absorption and energy return. This basic design is reminiscent of the Asics Gel Contend 4.
