Updates to Reebok Harmony Road

  • The Reebok Harmony Road delivers a smooth in-shoe feel and breathable coverage through the seamless SmoothFuse upper material. It is lightweight and has a smooth lining that provides the foot with an irritation-free environment.
  • The shoe features the new Tri-Zone midsole technology that efficiently absorbs shock in the heel and delivers responsive propulsion in the forefoot area. It is specifically designed for a smoother and balanced ride.
  • The Harmony Road also features the innovative and performance-driven KooshRide core technology that is designed for long-lasting cushioning. This technology was engineered from a TPU foam for a highly-responsive running experience.
  • In the forefoot of the shoe is the PwrPad technology. This convex rubber is designed to deliver a faster and more powerful toe-off.

Reebok Harmony Road size and fit

The Reebok Harmony Road generally runs true to size. This neutral road running shoe is available in a standard medium width for both women and men’s version. It has a nice fit for those runners who have medium foot measurements in the heel, mid-foot, and forefoot.

Outsole

In the outsole of the shoe is the high-abrasion carbon rubber material that delivers durability in high-wear areas. The carbon rubber gives added cushioning and provides reliable traction while running on the road.

For a more powerful toe-off and enhanced performance, a PwrPad technology is also added in the forefoot. It’s designed to accommodate the natural position and motion of the foot as it prepares itself to lift off the ground.

Midsole

The Reebok Harmony Road utilizes the innovative KooshRide core technology. This performance-driven technology was engineered from a TPU midsole foam that’s placed into the inner section of the platform. Its purpose is to deliver long-lasting cushioning that’s ideal for long-distance runs.

For a smoother, faster heel-to-toe transition, and balanced ride, the shoe uses the Tri-Zone midsole technology. It is designed for a responsive propulsion in the forefoot and reliable shock absorption in the heel.

Upper

A mix of synthetic fabrics and mesh make up the main upper unit. The open construction of these materials ensures seamless airflow into the foot-chamber, thus maintaining a cool and dry environment for the foot.

The SmoothFuse technology is an overlay system that is printed directly to the upper unit. It blends seamlessly with the fabrics, giving a premium and sporty look. It also accommodates a more secure fit because it helps the rest of the upper materials in hugging the foot.

The shoe’s softly padded tongue and heel collar provides added comfort and enhanced fit. Also, the flat laces hold the foot securely and remain tied for the duration of the run.
