Updates to Reebok Zig Evolution 2.0

  • The Reebok Zig Evolution 2.0 promises to be a worthy upgrade of running gear, with its dynamic features and more robust design elements that give the runner more speed and mileage. This neutral running shoe is suitable for long-distance runs, agility sessions, and gym workouts, thus guaranteeing its durability and longevity.
  • A lightweight mesh upper brings a flexible and adaptable fit with its four-way stretch capability. This version has considerably larger mesh holes compared to its predecessor, therefore ensuring a more breathable in-shoe feel. The PowerFrame system has also been updated with new material and layout, promoting a more comfortable ride while still providing a secure fit.
  • The sole unit, on the other hand, remains the same: the ZigTech midsole delivers superior cushioning and shock absorption. This version, however, adds a shock-absorbing plate in the heel. Meanwhile, the CRTek outsole continues to offer durability and traction in the crucial areas.

Reebok Zig Evolution 2.0 size and fit

The Reebok Zig Evolution 2.0 has a standard running shoe length, thus fits true to size. The shoe’s silhouette does not stray far from the previous version, which will match runners with a low or medium foot volume. The Reebok Zig Evolution 2.0 is available for both men and women in a medium width profile.

Outsole

The Reebok CRTek outsole is known for its high resistance to abrasion, which permits it to effectively shield the high-wear areas of the shoe against wear and tear. It is made from carbon rubber, a capable material in supplying adequate traction and promoting surface control. The durable nature of carbon rubber guarantees protection from the harmful elements of the running surface.

Midsole

The ZigTech is a patented midsole technology that produces a firm, reliable platform and a steady cushioning. With its zigzag shape, the impact from foot strike is absorbed in the heel area, then distributed to the rest of the foot, resulting in an energized forward propulsion.

Because of its firm cushioning, the ZigTech midsole is robust enough to handle long-distance and steady-paced runs. The technology in this material allows for a consistent and even shock absorption that reduces pressure at the joints of the foot.

Embedded in the heel area is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) plate that is meant to aid the shock absorbing capabilities of the midsole by incorporating the initial impact from landing and dispersing it to the rest of the foot.

Upper

A lightweight mesh makes up the upper of the Zig Evolution 2.0. It has a four-way stretch capability that enables an adaptive and contoured fit.

The PowerFrame overlay system of the previous version is also present in this shoe. However, the material is now a softer, fabric-like type, in contrast to the last one’s hard leather. The PowerFrame system creates a supportive framework for the shoe, which secures the foot and prevents unnecessary movements.

The shoe’s lacing system is integrated into the PowerFrame feature, further enhancing the locked-down fit of the Zig Evolution 2.0.
