- Reebok introduces the Express Runner, a straightforward shoe targeted towards beginner runners. Its entry-level features prevent the neophyte runner from being overwhelmed, as opposed to using a gear that is cramped with various technologies.
- This affordable running shoe is designed for the road, and it is ideal for neutral pronators or runners who have a medium to high arch.
- The upper of the shoe makes use of a four-way stretch mesh to ensure a breathable and contoured fit. Reebok presents PowerFrame, an element that integrates the laces and brings midfoot support.
- With IMEVA foam in the midsole, the shoe supplies a lightweight cushioning but not at the expense of a responsive ride. The Express Runner also features a basic rubber outsole that, while minimal, is efficient and durable.
The Reebok Express Runner has a standard running shoe length and is available in a variety of sizes. With a broad forefoot and a moderate midfoot construction, the shoe will fit comfortably even for wearers with a high foot volume. The width profiles available are D – Medium for the men’s version and B – Medium for the women’s version.
Made from a traditional rubber, the outsole of the Reebok Express Runner presents sufficient traction for any road surface. The material also guarantees durability and endurance for long runs.
The outsole also features a unique pattern of pockets that act as impact absorber, thus promoting a smooth ride.
The IMEVA foam midsole of the Express Runner brings a firm but flexible cushioning. It also delivers a bounce that allows for an energized ride and encourages the runner to go for longer miles.
Using a four-way stretch mesh, the upper of this shoe offers a contoured fit. The contouring effect means the mesh moves with the foot, and it has a less restrictive feel compared to other materials.
The PowerFrame structure in the midfoot area acts as a framework to keep the foot secure and supported, as it prevents unnecessary movements while running.
The integrated lace system aids the PowerFrame in providing an efficient method for foot lockdown.
Reebok also aims for an enhanced mobility with the low-cut ankle design of the Express Runner. The collar is padded to give extra comfort and to prevent bruising and abrasions.
The tongue has an open-sandwich mesh layout that aims to supply additional breathability to the foot.
