Rankings

  • The Reebok Sweet Road 2 is a running shoe that’s designed for those who have neutral pronation. It makes use of a sporty design that isn’t bulky or weighed down. Its upper unit offers blister-free coverage via the SmoothFuse construction.
  • Two cushioning units make up the midsole of this road companion. The first one is a carrier foam that is responsible for reactive support and surface protection; the second one is a thermoplastic polyurethane core that offers long-lasting cushioning.

The Reebok Sweet Road 2 was designed using the standard measurements. Runners are encouraged to get a pair that is adherent to their usual sizing choices. When it comes to width, the available options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The semi-curved shape of the last accommodates the natural curve of the human foot.

The outsole unit of the Reebok Sweet Road 2 makes use of a rubber compound. The job of this layer is to protect the rest of the platform from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also delivers traction, which is an integral part of running.

Flex grooves allow the sole unit to move in conjunction with the bending of the foot’s joints and tendons.

IMEVA or injection molded ethylene vinyl acetate serves as the bulk of the Reebok Sweet Road 2’s midsole. It acts as a full-length carrier foam that holds a core unit inside. Its cradling configuration prevents the central component from losing structure.

The KooshRide Core is made from thermoplastic polyurethane. It is meant to directly support the underside of the foot during the run, providing it with reactive and constant cushioning.

The SmoothFuse is made up of exterior and interior layers. The external part is a mesh that has securely-woven sections and strategic areas that feature ventilation pores. Its job is to accommodate air into the foot-chamber. The interior sleeve is a smooth material that evokes the feeling of merely wearing a sock.

A traditional lacing system is used in the Reebok Sweet Road 2. Semi-flat laces cover the tongue unit in a crisscross fashion, causing the medial and lateral portions of the façade to react when the fit is adjusted. Extra eyelets are placed on the front of the collar.

Synthetic overlays bolster the eyelets, the sides, and the rear. These printed add-ons help the lacing system when it comes to providing a secure hold of the foot.

A pull-tab on the back of the collar helps the runner when it comes to wearing and removing this running shoe.
