Reebok wakes up with Reebok ZPrint 3D
I do triathlon and I do it with ON for example.
What is it recommended for:
For 5-10km races.
For runners with narrow feet.
What it's NOT recommended for:
For runners with wide feet or those who like to run without socks.
For runners who step in at the heel zone instead of mid-front foot.
We would like to add in some comments regarding to how we think this model would even be greater.
- First is the option for some reflecting panels or something light-reflecting material. One of the swimbikewrite.com testers suggested that the Reebok logo at the lateral would be an awesome spot to make it brighter.
- Second is the recommendation to change the "half sock" fit into a full one like they do with the Hexaeffect or the brand new Floatride. Models that we are very looking forward to test.
- Third and personal one: If Reebok would put this sole together with the Sublite sport, I think they would have a winner (at least for me).
I have to say that the One distance 1.0 and Sublite models are my actual triathlon workhorses, the ZPrint 3D remains as my “Sunny Sunday’s good looking car”.

I am a former elite athlete who represented my country in two different sports at the highest level. Now I am living the tri-life in Switzerland since 2013. In a normal week, I'd run more than a half marathon and maybe ten times more on two-wheels, averaging at 20km weekly. I've finished more than 20 triathlons from sprints to half-ironman, road and mountain bike races, trails and running events without any DNF that I could account for. I apply my highest standards to my reviews and the products I test and I apply them always focused on the tri-sport.
2 reviews - average score 80/100
In the end I guess all you can say is that you need to try them on yourself to see if it is for you.

I found them to give good support throughout my training and definitely as an everyday shoe to wear to work with jeans.
I like the material which is very flexible and soft and will not irritate your toes, but it’s too narrow. It may even be more narrow than a Nike!

Updates to Reebok ZPrint 3D
- The Reebok ZPrint 3D is a running shoe that’s made to ergonomically fit the runner’s foot. A 3D-mapping technology was put to use in order to make the platform more structurally accommodating. High quality materials work in tandem to deliver quality performance and service. The color schemes used in this model are visually appealing; they give an energetic and edgy flair.
- The upper unit of the Reebok ZPrint 3D uses engineered mesh. It’s a material that encourages air into the foot-chamber, giving breathable support to the runner. It doesn’t tear apart easily. Stitched overlays are added to reinforce the upper unit. They also help the fabrics in wrapping around the foot and keeping it in place. A heel pull-tab assists the runner when it comes to wearing and taking off the shoe.
- The platform of this running shoe uses a dual-density foam. It makes sure to deliver responsive cushioning to the wearer. 3D technology was used to make the outsole more agreeable to the shape of the human foot. It has convex edges, a semi-curved shape, and a slightly narrower mid-foot section. It definitely mimics the dimensions of the underfoot.
Reebok ZPrint 3D size and fit
The Reebok ZPrint 3D has a regular running shoe length. It comes in sizes that adhere to the standard measurements. Its semi-curved shape follows the natural curvature of the human foot. The available width is medium. It accommodates those with medium sized feet.
The outsole unit of the Reebok ZPrint 3D uses durable rubber. It covers the mid-sole and shields it from the abrasive nature of the asphalt.
Independent circular nodes are shaped in the outsole unit. They make the platform more flexible. Runners are able to move more naturally because of this design.
The platform is mapped using 3D technology. It essentially takes the natural shape of the underfoot, with a curved layout and a slightly narrowed mid-foot section.
The dual-density foam used in the Reebok ZPrint 3D provides reliable underfoot cushioning. It doesn’t limit the natural movement of the foot. It is able to attenuate landing shock and enable springy toe-offs. It is sturdy and long-lasting, too.
A foam insole adds a bit more cushioning to the underfoot. It can be replaced with a new one or removed entirely, depending on the preferences of the wearer.
Lightweight and sturdy, the engineered mesh offers reliable coverage to the foot of the runner. It is also breathable; it allows air to easily enter the foot-chamber in order to maintain ventilation.
Stitched overlays support the upper fabrics. They wrap around the foot securely, adapting to the tightening and loosening of the lacing system.
A pull-tab is placed in the heel area. It assists the runner when it comes to wearing the shoe and taking it off.
