Super flexible and comfortable that I really like them.
This is not the performance or running shoe that Reebok claims it to be as it has no support at all.
- Reebok’s take on the ZQuick Lite is to clearly make it lighter and more agile without losing the needed support. In this shoe, the upper is totally seamless and made of very light materials. Part of this ultra-light upper is the introduction of 3D FuseFrame overlays.
- The new engineered mesh is also more durable as it is a bit thicker with plenty of holes for air to pass through. Runners get decent support and a sweat-free run in this upper.
- Reebok also uses a wider base for this shoe for more stability. Despite this slightly wider base, it remains to be exceptionally flexible as the innumerable vertical and horizontal flex grooves create independent nodes that expand as needed and help with the cushioning.
Reebok gives runners a standard fit in the ZQuick Lite. It also has a standard shoe length. The midfoot and the heel are quite snug with a forefoot that offers good enough space for the toes not to be cramped or to accommodate mid-run swelling.
The almost flat outsole is articulated by countless vertical and horizontal flex grooves to produce independent square pods all throughout the outsole. Besides getting tons of flexibility, the outsole helps with the cushioning as it helps the shoe expands naturally the way the foot does with every impact. The ZQuick Lite’s underfoot is a mix of CRTek carbon rubber in the heel and the medial side beneath the big toes for durability and blown rubber the rest of the way for more traction.
A standard EVA mans the entire section of the midsole for adequate cushioning, durability, and responsiveness. The midsole, and even the last, are also carved with flex grooves to fully maximize the flexibility and cushioning properties of the shoe. Moving through the gait cycle is enhanced by the full-length midsole foam.
The very simple upper uses breathable engineered mesh and fused on overlays as support. Reebok utilizes its own version of cords that are attached to the midsole and looped through the laces to provide runners their most comfortable fit. Both the tongue and the collar have decent cushioning and lined with soft fabric for comfort. A removable PU insole makes the cushioning and support better.
