Updates to Reebok Garrett
- The Reebok Garrett is a trail running shoe that features protective elements and designs that work well when tackling the great outdoors. It has a robust look that’s largely thanks to durable components and layers, which work together to deliver a high quality running gear to those who need it.
- The upper unit features a mesh material that seamlessly allows air to enter the shoe in order to provide a dry and well-ventilated environment for the foot. The coverage is snug, yet secure because of the stitched-on overlays and a comfortable inner sleeve. The foot is well-supported by this full-bodied upper unit.
- The midsole unit uses a full-length foam material to provide underfoot cushioning and support to the wearer. It has a springy nature and it is capable of attenuating shock, thus making the platform more responsive and comfortable. A removable insole adds more to the cushioning system, and it can even be replaced.
- The outsole unit uses a very durable, non-marking rubber to provide sure protection against wear and abrasion. It’s thick enough to remain consistent and protective, even after many uses. Gripping lugs that aren’t so prominent ensure that the runner is able to traction over the various surfaces of the trails.
Reebok Garrett size and fit
The Reebok Garrett has a standard running shoe length. The men and women’s sizes follow the regular measurements when it comes to size. The heel, mid-foot and forefoot sections have medium widths, so it accommodates those with medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape actually adheres to the natural curvature of the human foot.
The Reebok Garrett has an outsole that’s very adequate for the trails. A non-marking rubber covers the sole unit and protects it from any abrasive surface or debris. It is noticeably thick for an outsole layer, so it definitely lasts long. It’s also responsible for delivering surface traction.
Gripping lugs give the runner more surface control, especially when it comes to uphill and downward traversals. They aren’t very prominent in this running shoe, so the runner can actually run on more even ground.
Flex grooves are placed in the forefoot section of the Reebok Garrett. They allow the foot to move more naturally, giving the toe-off phase more flexibility and sureness.
The midsole unit of this running shoe uses Ethylene vinyl acetate. This compound is actually one of the most reliable and standard mid-sole foams on the market. It delivers responsible cushioning, superb underfoot support, and responsiveness that’s unrestrictive. Natural movement is very much welcome when it comes to this platform. It can even attenuate shock for a smoother and better ride.
A soft, perforated mesh makes up the main upper unit of the Reebok Garrett. It is highly breathable, so air seamlessly enters the shoe to keep a cool and dry environment for the foot. It is also durable because it doesn’t tear off easily.
Synthetic overlays have been stitched onto the upper unit. They provide structure to the shape of the upper while also giving a snug yet customizable fit to the wearer. They’re connected directly to the lacing system, so they become tight or loose, depending on how the shoelaces are adjusted.
A removable insole adds a bit more cushioning to the runner. It is comfortable and responsive, as well, so it works well with the mid-sole unit in providing a plush yet flexible underfoot experience.
