  • The Injection-molded EVA heel counter and the molded anatomical sock-liner in the midsole make the Reebok Plus Runner ULTK a wise choice for runners who are looking for high comfortability, enhanced responsiveness and optimal durability in a shoe.
  • The abrasion-resistant carbon rubber outsole exhibits excellent gripping properties, even on wet surfaces. Also, the high durability keeps the shoe in a high-functioning condition for a long period of time.
  •  

The Reebok Plus Runner ULTK has a standard running length and comes in the standard medium width of D and B for men and women, respectively. The semi-curved shape of this product mimics the natural curve of the human foot.

The Reebok Plus Runner ULTK utilizes a high-quality rubber compound on its outsole for optimal traction and maximum durability. 

This section of the platform is also flexible and it shows high resistance to impact loads that may occur during quicker or sharper turns on the asphalt. It is as flexible and reliable as the Brooks Launch 6.

The Injection-molded Ethylene-vinyl Acetate (EVA) heel counter adds an extra bounce to every stride and gives incredible energy-return to the users, thereby enabling them to cover longer distances without feeling tired.

The Reebok Plus Runner ULTK also boasts a molded anatomical sock-liner for a customized feel of comfort. It basically adds a bit of cushioning to the arch and the crevices of the forefoot area.

The SmoothFuse upper provides a seamless, soft feel against the skin. It is not only highly comfortable, but also sufficiently flexible enough to accommodate the changing foot-movements during both long distance running and the short distance sprints where the transitions between various positions becomes quicker.

A low-cut design is another interesting feature of the Reebok Plus Runner ULTK. This design gives more freedom to the foot to move around and change between the various running positions. This makes the running experience of users more fun and natural.

The delta logo is fused to the heel of the shoe to enhance the overall look.
