Updates to Pheehan 2.0 TX

Next level comfort and performance is provided by the Reebok Pheehan Run 2.0 TX. This running features a durable construction, breathable fabrics, and reliable cushioning units. They work together in order to deliver quality service to the runner.

The mid-sole unit features the DMXRide, a unit that is able to handle the impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle. Ethylene vinyl acetate foam gives full-length cushioning that’s springy and long-lasting.

Durable abrasion resistant rubber covers the mid-sole and protects it from the potentially debilitating nature of surface friction and continued use. It doesn’t easily peel off or succumb to wear, thus preserving the structural integrity and efficacy of the mid-sole. Flex grooves run from the forefoot to the mid-foot area. They allow the platform to become more flexible and agreeable to the natural performance of the wearer’s foot.

The main upper fabric has an open construction. It easily welcomes air into the foot chamber, which is helpful when it comes to maintain a cool and dry environment for the runner. Stitched overlays cover the rear, middle and front of the shoe, but they do not hide or restrict the breathable mesh. They provide protection for the foot, while also ensuring that it receives a snug and secure fit.

Pheehan 2.0 TX size and fit

The Reebok Pheehan Run 2.0 TX has a regular running shoe length. It comes in sizes that adhere to the standard measurements. The available width is medium, so it is able to accommodate those with medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape naturally follows the curve of the human foot.

Outsole

Durable rubber protects the sole unit from wear and tear. It is placed in such a way that no section of the mid-sole foam is exposed to the ground. It is also meant to provide traction on the roads, which is important for responsive turns, swerves, brakes and forward momentum.

The forefoot and mid-foot sections of the external sole unit benefit from the presence of flex grooves. They allow the platform to become more flexible and responsive to the natural movement of the wearer’s foot. The toe-off becomes more enabled and efficient because of them.

Midsole

Responsive cushioning is given by the Ethylene vinyl acetate foam. This full-length material keeps the foot comfortable throughout the running experience. It doesn’t break down easily and it moves along with the foot.

The DMXRide is a cushioning material in the rear section of the mid-sole, which is responsible for shock absorption during the landing phase of the gait cycle. It also provides more structural strength to the mid-sole, making it more effective at handling the weight of the wearer.

Additional underfoot cushioning is given by a padded foam sock liner. It is flexible, so it won’t impede the natural movement of the foot.

Upper

Open-weave mesh serves as the main fabric of the Reebok Pheehan Run 2.0 TX. It has visible pores which allow air to enter the shoe’s interior. The environmental air keeps the foot cool and dry at all times.

Synthetic overlays are stitched onto the upper fabrics. They ensure that the foot is kept snug and locked inside the shoe by adapting to the adjustments made to the lacing system.
