Updates to Reebok Runner 2.0 MT

  • The Reebok Runner 2.0 MT is designed as an easy-to-wear running shoe with its minimal weight and basic-yet-effective structure. This shoe is ideal for low mileage running, training, and long walks. The MT stands for Memory Tech, a feature that allows the insole to contour to the foot for superior cushioning.
  • The upper now uses sandwich mesh, a material that brings improved support while retaining a lightweight quality. It has synthetic overlays that work as a multidirectional framework for a guaranteed foot lockdown.
  • The midsole still employs a compression-molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (CMEVA) foam unit, as it successfully ensures a responsive and springy ride. A full-length rubber outsole assists the midsole by delivering superior traction and protection.

Reebok Runner 2.0 MT size and fit

The Reebok Runner 2.0 MT is true to size. Runners will find a comfortable fit with their usual size preference. The shoe’s construction is ideal for wearers with a narrow to moderate foot volume. Width profiles are available in D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

Outsole

The full-length outsole of the Reebok Runner 2.0 MT features a rubber compound with high abrasion resistance. With its durable finish, it efficiently withstands the usual wear and tear, as well as offers traction on smooth surfaces.

The outsole pattern stays the same as its predecessor. An anatomical layout which displays 12.9-degree flex grooves on the forefoot area gives a natural running experience. The flex grooves also add a stabilizing frame and support for the foot.

Midsole

The CMEVA midsole foam promotes natural foot movement with its high-energy return capability. This material also has a shock-absorbing property, and it prevents impact forces from disrupting the stride.

With the Memory Tech sock liner, there is an added cushioning that conforms to the underfoot, following its shape. The result is a customized feel and an insole that adapts to each foot’s unique dimension.

Upper

The upper of the Reebok Runner 2.0 MT makes use of sandwich mesh for a durable, breathable, and comfortable fit without the added bulk. It claims to allow maximum air intake to keep the foot ventilated and feeling fresh.

There are synthetic overlays strategically placed across the upper for multidirectional support. It also maintains the structural integrity of the shoe. The shoelaces connect directly to the overlays to enable an adjustable fit as the laces are tightened.

The heel area is equipped with a heel counter to provide a secure feel; while a heel pull-tab makes it easier to put the shoe on and off.
