Updates to Reebok Pheehan Run 4.0

  • The changes in the Pheehan Run 4.0 is basically Reebok’s answer to several of the complaints of the previous model’s style and performance. Most notable in the change is the removable of the plastic and cheap-looking overlays. In their place are leather-like and suede overlays. It is now the massive Reebok logo as the main midfoot overlay. The support and security may not drastically change, but it is always nice to have a good-looking shoe while running.
  • The mesh is clearly bigger and more structure than before. It answers the durability issues of the upper in the previous model.
  • The tongue is more padded than before for enhanced comfort. Inside, it offers a plusher surrounding as the interior is lined with soft fabric.
  • The latest version of the Pheehan is also a bit more low cut than any of the past models. It gives runners with better flexibility and more freedom of movement.

Reebok Pheehan Run 4.0 size and fit

The fit of the 4th instalment of the Pheehan Run is mainly the same as the earlier models. It still has good wraparound feel in the heel and a snug midfoot. The toe box should continue to delight those with above average forefoot. Sizing runs true in this shoe.


Outsole

The thick rubber outsole features rectangular pods of moderate sizes from the midfoot to the forefoot. A very deep and quite wide cut from the midfoot to the forefoot gives the shoe an element of flexibility. The heel is covered with abrasion-resistant rubber while the forefoot is blanketed with slightly softer blown rubber for traction.


Midsole

A thick and full-length EVA foam is found in the midsole of the Pheehan Run 4.0 for adequate cushioning, durability, and responsiveness.


Upper

A sandwich mesh provides excellent breathability and solid support. There is also a lighter and thinner scree beneath the main mesh helps keep dirt out. The leather-like overlays and the Reebok logo give an exceptional midfoot hold. A well-cushioned sockliner is found inside for more cushioning and better support. Reebok uses a traditional lace-up closure in the 4th edition of the Pheehan Run.
