  • 87 / 100 by RunRepeat • Joseph Arellano • Level 4 expert

    The Harmony Road is a great choice as the “first shoe” for the novice runner. The shoe’s smooth uniform cushioning will build confidence in newbies as they pile on the miles.

  • 88 / 100 by Believe in the Run • Thomas • Level 5 expert

    During the runs, I really enjoyed the shoe.

  • 89 / 100 by John Konye • Neal Maddox • Level 1 expert

    It's lightweight you know, very comfortable, good looking shoe.

  • 85 / 100 by Believe in the Run • Meaghan • Level 5 expert

    I can say that I was happily surprised with the Reebok Harmony Road. I put 50 miles on the shoes over the last few weeks and they’ve held up great.

  • 81 / 100 by Believe in the Run • Believe in the Run • Level 4 expert

    Reebok should try to shave some weight to 10 oz. or under for a size 10.5, and get the drop down a few millimeters. Occasionally, I could feel my heel drag during my midfoot strike.

  • 95 / 100 by The Holabird Blog • Cathy • Level 1 expert

    Overall, this I’ve found that the Reebok’s Harmony Road gives me a lively feel on the run without weighing me down. The cushioning just under my forefoot provides a springiness during transitions that keeps me energized from start to finish.

  • 89 / 100 by Confessions of a Mother Runner • Deborah Brooks • Level 1 expert

    I was immediately impressed with the lightweight feel of the shoes and the cushioned shock absorption.

  • 88 / 100 by Runner's World • Natasha Bliss • Level 1 expert

    As someone who overpronates slightly, I found this shoe to have just the right amount of cushion and support while also remaining light and flexible.

  • 87 / 100 by Running Sole Girl • Ally Gonzales • Level 1 expert

    Since I’m breaking them in, I’m wearing them most of the day, and can honestly say they’re one of the most comfortable running shoes I’ve had in a long time.

  • 87 / 100 by Running on Healthy • Sarah Dudek • Level 1 expert

    Not only did I run in these shoes but I also walked everywhere and taught classes in them. The end result? My pace was great, my feet felt fantastic, and my body didn’t notice a thing.

  • 86 / 100 by As Many Reviews As Possible • JOELXFIT • Level 1 expert

    The best way I can make the analogy is that running in the Harmony Roads feels like driving a Honda Accord: reliable, designed to be driven at normal speeds, but has excellent response and handling with superb comfort.

  • 86 / 100 by As Many Reviews As Possible • Joel • Level 1 expert

    I don't really think that these shoes really excel in any one area but I feel like they're good in just about every area that pertains to running shoes.

  • 85 / 100 by So This is Fitness • DWMcTague • Level 1 expert

    I know there are lighter shoes out there, so this may not be everyone’s choice for short speedy runs, or sprint workouts. Long ones? Sure. I’d recommend it for those.

  • 85 / 100 by Marathons and Motivation • Angela Campos • Level 1 expert

    I had a very smooth and balanced experience each time I hit the road in these shoes, whether it was for a 3 mile run or a 13 mile run!

  • 85 / 100 by Cardio, Weights & Protein Shakes • Lizzy Winggate • Level 1 expert

    The lightweight and low rise design make them great for gym workouts in addition to running.

  • 85 / 100 by The Run Experience • Nate • Level 1 expert

    The only really thing I didn't like so far is probably just the little clunkiness in the heel. But the other aspects of the shoe I thought were pretty good.

  • 84 / 100 by Grinder's Gear Review • Jamie Toland • Level 1 expert

    I was able to get some runs in (everything from 400 meter repeats, to 800 meters runs to a mile or two jogs) and was very pleased with the comfort they provided.

  • 84 / 100 by RunningWife • Sara • Level 1 expert

    After the second and third time wearing the shoes they started to loosen up. Even better was that they still felt like they had a lot of cushion and my legs were still responding really well, even during marathon training!

  • 82 / 100 by Organic Runner Mom • Sandra • Level 1 expert

    I found the fit to be true to size leaving me with room for comfort in the toe box which is important for distance running

  • 81 / 100 by Sassy Fit Girl • Sashea • Level 1 expert

    I wouldn’t use them for racing or track workouts because I prefer something lighter but I would definitely use them for recovery and training runs since they provide a solid and consistent ride.

  • 80 / 100 by You Signed Up For What? • Cynthia • Level 1 expert

    They breathed well and I had zero issues – if they were just a tad smaller they might be my go-to shoe for 2017!

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.
