6 reasons to buy

  • The SmoothFuse upper offers comfort that’s rub-free and supportive in the One Cushion 3.0, according to a couple of reviews.
  • The low-cut design encourages freedom of movement.
  • Some runners greatly appreciated the triple foam mid-sole, which provides cushioning, propulsions and underfoot cradling.
  • NanoWeave found in the medial and lateral sides of the One Cushion 3.0 keeps the foot snug and secure.
  • Robust outsole components keep a durable external platform and a reliable protective section that fights wear and tearing noted a handful of users.
  • For a shoe that has a lot of features, it doesn’t have a very expensive price.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Some of the testers experienced a peeled off sole after just a few uses.
  • The Reebok One Cushion 3.0 has a narrow fit that many runners were disappointed with.
  • The heel area was too tight to a few runners, causing some blisters.

Bottom line

The One Cushion 3.0 from Reebok generally got good grade from many runners because of its robust mid-sole, solid arch support, well-vented upper and a responsive outsole. It excels as a daily trainer.

Updates to Reebok One Cushion 3.0

  • The One Cushion 3.0 features several updates. It utilizes a more breathable mesh that will guarantee cool and dry runs. Reebok made the upper lighter and more flexible. These upper characteristics greatly enhance the fit and comfort of the shoe.
  • A new midfoot frame works together with the laces and the sole for different levels of comfort and support for the runner.
  • The outsole gets a revamp as well. Reeboks use of numerous pods keeps the weight down and adds a little help to the overall cushioning of the shoe.

Reebok One Cushion 3.0 size and fit

The fit is average like the previous version, which means that runners with standard widths from the heel to the forefoot will be very comfortable in the 3rd version of the One Cushion. Available widths are medium and wide or D, B, and 2E respectively. The shoe length is regular with sizes 6 to 17 for the men’s and 4 to 12 for the women’s.


Outsole

The outsole uses several colors to distinguish the uses of the different rubber density. Obviously, the heel is the firmest as it is designed to handle the bulk of the impact upon landing. The softer part is in the middle of the shoe where mid stance happens and the softest being the forefoot for added traction. There is a decoupled heel in the outsole, which works with the Impact Zone of the midsole to help lessen the force upon landing.


Midsole

Reebok made the midsole very unique by using what it calls 3 different zones. First up is the Contact Zone near the heel where most of the impact happens. Here, the softer cushioning is located. This is also the reason why there is a decoupled heel in the outsole. The midfoot, called Midstance Zone, uses soft foam. It is here that the layer of foam guides the foot for a powerful take off. Finally, there is the Propulsive Zone near the forefoot. Reebok logically made this part a bit firmer than any of the other parts to have a more stable platform for take offs. All of the three zones work with precision to make the whole gait cycle efficient and effortless.


Upper

A seamless mesh upper that Reebok calls the SmoothFuse offers exceptional breathability and sock-like fit. Lightweight and synthetic overlays on both sides of the shoe provide support and a little structure. Reebok calls this the NanoWeave Support. An external TPU heel counter locks down the foot nicely. Running in low-light areas is solved by the presence of reflective materials in the shoe.
