Size and fit

Although the low top Reebok Zig Kinetica is offered in men’s sizing, Reebok considers this as a unisex sneaker. It is made of a seamless, breathable mesh upper with a molded neoprene collar to deliver a supportive fit to its wearers. 

Just like the majority of laced sneakers, Reebok used flat cotton laces to allow its users to adjust the fit accordingly. These laces move through the slightly padded eyelets that will avoid any feeling of pressing down on the feet when the wearer tightens up the laces.

The midsole of this sneaker, meanwhile, is inserted with the Floatride Fuel technology, which provides responsiveness and springy cushioning for added overall comfort.

Reebok Zig Kinetica Style

Inspired by outer space, the Reebok Zig Kinetica sneakers display kickass aesthetics combined with three technologies to amplify the wearer’s energy. This sneaker is dressed in a seamless mesh upper added with a neoprene collar for added comfort and style. 

Below the upper is the bold midsole that has exciting elements to look at. The zigzag design on the midsole provides bold aesthetics while maximizing the comfort and energy return to its wearers. 

Reebok offers this footwear in several colorways. The most popular hues are the black/sunbaked orange/vivid orange also known as the Conor McGregor Zig Kinetica, radiant red/sunbaked orange/black, grey/blue/yellow, white/true grey/white, true grey 1/vivid orange/fluid blue, and true grey 1/black. 

The Reebok Zig Kinetica sneakers exude an effortlessly cool vibe, making any attire look chill. Buyers may grab a pair of ripped skinny jeans with a plain t-shirt and a trucker cap for a relaxed ensemble. Some may also style their monochromatic tracksuit with this bold sneaker for a gym-ready outfit. 

For the ladies, RBK Zig Kinetica looks great on feet when paired up with shorts or mini skirts. Some may also use a pleated skirt with a sweater on top for a girly ensemble with hints of a sporty vibe. Mom’s jeans can also be matched up with this sneaker for an authentic retro attire.

Notable Features

What makes the Reebok Zig Kinetica style a real eye-catcher is its midsole pattern. The Floatride Fuel technology on its midsole is covered with the Zig Energy shell with a zigzag design. This bold detail enhances the stability and delivers maximized energy return to its wearers.

Reebok Zig Kinetica History

In 2010, Reebok launched the ZigPulse, an iteration that first bore the Zig Tech. This footwear set the standard for function and style, with its technology that is mainly designed to win the performance category. 

This technology was seen in several iterations and was revived in 2019 in the form of the Reebok Zig Kinetica Concept_Type 1. From running to boxing, countless names in the sports industry were seen wearing sporting this sneaker. Some of the world-class athletes who donned this kick are Peyton Manning, John Wall, and Amir Khar.

The latest variation to join the ZigTech arsenal was unveiled in 2020. It was dubbed as Reebok Zig Kinetica, which features a sleek and futuristic design with quality and comfort at par with other renowned sports-inspired footwear. 

This highly functional footwear features a distinct zigzag pattern on its sole. This element not just enhances the overall appeal of this model but delivers a high-energy return. The sole of this sneaker uses three systems, the Floatride Fuel that provides ample cushioning. Covering the Floatride Fuel is the Zig Energy Shell that adds bold aesthetic appeal. The last in the 3-part system is the Zig Energy Bands found on the outsole, which expands and contracts to give a spring-like response with every stride.

                 The Zig Kinetica

Reebok launched the Zig Kinetica in 2020, with the help of mixed martial artist Conor McGregor, during his exit in the UFC. With this pair’s introduction to the market, Reebok aims to cement the brand’s foot as one of the industry’s leaders in innovative and fashionable footwear brands.

The Reebok Zig Kinetica is meant to function as everyday footwear. It has a chunkier silhouette that is usually seen in most fitness sneakers. Considered as one of the best-looking footwear in the market, this sneaker features a breathable mesh upper resting on top of the striking and highly comfortable sole.
