The cushioning was comfortable, supportive and responsive at the same time. That is impressive from a new shoe like this.
- The Reebok Grasse Road is a neutral running shoe that aims to provide the most comfortable running experience. This shoe incorporates the TriZone midsole that has two foam densities. These are placed strategically under the heel and the forefoot to provide more cushioning.
- The Grass Road also employs PwrPad that enhances the responsiveness and increases the power of the toe-off.
With regards to the sizing and fit of Grasse Road, the shoe follows the standard sizing scheme. One of the components directly affecting the fit of the shoe is the patch that traces the arch of the shoe. This patch is found on the medial side and helps in the overall fit and security of the shoe.
To protect the shoe from abrasive elements when running, the outsole is composed of high abrasion rubber material to cover the full length of the shoe. A lot of the long-distance running shoes incorporate high-abrasion rubber materials into the outsole. Some of these shoes are the Asics Gel Kayano 25 and the Asics Gel Nimbus 21. This outsole also helps the shoe in maintaining its grip. Additionally, this outsole component also helps in providing added cushioning to the foot, which helps protect and provide comfort.
A technology called PwrPad is also employed in the outsole of the Grasse Road. This is found under the metatarsal, which helps in adding power to the toe-off of the runner. This technology also helps in increasing the responsiveness of the shoe.
The Grasse Road incorporates the TriZone midsole which is responsible for shock absorption. This technology utilizes two densities of foam. These foams are found under the heel and the forefoot of the shoe. The foam under the heel provides high cushioning in order to soften a landing on the heel. Meanwhile, the foam under the forefoot is composed of a springier and firmer material. This component helps you transition into your toe-off and propel you forward in a more efficient manner.
This shoe also employs the KooshRide technology that makes the shoe perfect for long-distance running as it is composed of a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) foam that boosts the responsiveness of the midsole. This technology is also meant for long-lasting cushioning as it breaks down slower than the typical EVA foam.
The Reebok Grasse Road upper presents a patch that traces the arch of the shoe. The upper of the Grasse Road also features a material that is highly breathable and flexible.
The shoe uses a low-cut construction in the upper to make sure that there is unrestrained foot movement.
