Updates to Reebok Zigkick Dual

  • The Reebok Zigkick Dual is a responsive running shoe that delivers high quality cushioning to the runner throughout their activities. Those trainings, races and workouts that need a high level of kinetic output are the ones that would benefit from the secure upper, robust mid-sole, and protective outsole.
  • The upper unit of this running shoe was made to deliver a well-ventilated coverage that’s comfortable and soft on the skin. A padded tongue and collar keeps the foot in place while also adding cushioning to its contours. Integrated overlays hug the foot securely, but snugly in a customizable fit.
  • The mid-sole unit of the Reebok Zigkick Dual gives adequate cushioning throughout the gait cycle. It is also able to return energy to the runner, so that each step becomes more energized and enabled. Heel cushioning is enhanced because of the ZigTech, which handles impact and balance to the rest of the foot.
  • The ZigKick outsole works with the mid-sole unit in providing impact protection and responsible cushioning to the wearer. A zigzag shape is observed in this section, and it gives horizontal and vertical cushioning for a better and smoother strike and stride. Durable rubber covers the outsole unit.

Reebok Zigkick Dual size and fit

The Reebok Zigkick Dual is true to its size. It comes in sizes that follow the standard measurements when it comes to length. The widths available for this shoe are medium and wide, essentially allowing the runner to get a truly custom fit. The semi-curved shape allows the natural shape of the foot to ease well into it.


Outsole

A high abrasion resistant rubber covers the rest of the sole unit and protects it from wear and abrasion. It is moderately thick for this shoe, so it stays efficient even after a long time of using it.

A zigzag shape that runs from the heel to the mid-foot handles impact from striking on the ground. It also acts as a cushioning system, so it’s part-outsole and mid-sole. The ZigKick sole unit delivers a better and smoother running experience by combining impact protection and responsible cushioning.


Midsole

Working with the outsole, the mid-sole part of the Reebok Zigkick Dual features the ZigTech, a cushioning system that gives support to the runner at all times. Horizontal and vertical cushioning are achieved by this reliable unit that has a zigzag shape. It also offers a bit of bounciness to each step, making each foot strike more comfortable and the toe-off more enabled.

A TPU heel plate in the heel area makes sure that the shoe is able to support the foot when it comes to landing the foot on the ground.


Upper

A breathable mesh material covers the foot comfortably. It has an open construction, so it is able to encourage air to enter the shoe in order to keep a cool and dry interior environment for the foot. It is durable and it doesn’t tear apart easily.

Synthetic overlays are placed on top of the mesh material. They’re made from a thin material, so they don’t add much to the overall weight of the Reebok Zigkick Dual. They provide structure to the shape of the shoe, while also helping the upper when it comes to hugging the foot snugly.

A cushioned foot bed adds more underfoot comfort for those long races and activities. It is removable, allowing the runner to replace it with a new one or decrease the level of cushioning for a close-to-the-ground experience.
