- The Reebok Zigwild TR 5.0 presents itself as an innovative running shoe with its unique and novel silhouette. Featuring some of the brand’s proprietary technologies in a classic, low-cut structure, the shoe is perfect for neutral runners who frequent the gym for treadmill or cardio, or those who accomplish 5Ks on the regular.
- A lightweight mesh comprises the upper of the Zigwild TR 5.0. The material promises a breathable shoe that delivers a comfortable and luxurious running experience.
- The main feature of this shoe is Reebok’s ZigTech outsole technology. With its one-of-a-kind design, the ZigTech offers a superior performance through its particular zigzag layout. A reliable underfoot cushioning augments support at the midsole area.
Most of Reebok’s running shoes are constructed following the standard length and medium width for men and women, and the Zigwild TR 5.0 is no exception. The shoe’s structure is snug at the toes, but with just an ample room in the forefoot. The midfoot and heel both have a small construction, making the Zigwild TR 5.0 ideal for runners with a low to moderate foot volume.
The ZigTech technology from Reebok is presented with a zigzag design. It works by absorbing the impact coming from the heel strike, and, by using the zigzag pattern, distributes that energy to the rest of the foot. This mechanism provides an efficient and dynamic forward propulsion.
Aside from developing an enhanced transition, the ZigTech also eliminates pain in the shins with its high-rebound capability.
Between the gaps created by each zigzag alternate sit a pair of small spikes, located in the medial and lateral areas. These spikes provide minimal but powerful traction that is necessary for the roads or indoors.
Acting as the midsole of the Zigwild TR 5.0 is a foam made from polyurethane. This compound forms a lightweight material that occupies the smallest area in the shoe. With its reduced bulk, the midsole endorses a comfortable and unrestricted run.
The shoe includes a removable sockliner that offers additional cushioning or protection for the underfoot. This feature could be replaced with custom orthotics if preferred by the user.
The lightweight mesh upper of the Reebok Zigwild TR 5.0 effectively delivers a breathable comfort while also promoting a healthy in-shoe environment for the foot. The mesh is constructed with a seamless finish to give the shoe a second-skin feel and permit the foot to move effortlessly.
With a low-cut ankle collar, the shoe enables increased mobility, as the foot is allowed to move freely. This design also encourages quick transitions.
