- Reebok seems to be putting priority in the breathability of their shoes and it is best exemplified by the Zone CushRun 2.0. A new honeycomb mesh upper that even includes part of the tongue will surely make every run very breathable and cool.
- The most apparent change is the removal of the oversized Reebok logo, which doubled as a midfoot overlay into something more traditional. Reebok’s obvious reason behind the change is to reduce the weight of the shoe without doing away the great support, particularly in the midfoot.
- A substantial overlay that is stitched across the heel going towards the midfoot enhances lockdown feel and cradles the heel really well. The heel in the 2nd installment of the Zone CushRun also showcases a new heel tab for ease of entry and exit.
The fit of CushRun’s latest model is basically the same as the original shoe. It is quite average with a little wiggle room in the forefoot. As always, this fit is ideal for those with standard foot measurements and who love to let their toes naturally splay while training. Both the regular widths of D for the men’s and B for the women’s are offered. Runners can also opt for a wider fit. The shoe length is true to size with choices of 6 to 13 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
The outsole is mostly carbon rubber for durability all throughout. Reebok uses a technology called Stabilizing Frame to enhance the shoe’s stable run and for added traction. The forefoot flex grooves delivers flexibility in a very well-cushioned shoe.
An EVA midsole runs the entire length of the shoe for consistent cushioning. The cushioning is quite plush, but with enough responsiveness.
A honeycomb mesh upper extends all the way to the tongue for a really breathable ride. There are several overlays that are strategically placed all throughout the shoe for support and stability. A nicely-padded interior makes the shoe very comfortable while the heel tab makes taking off and on a breeze.
