Encourages pressure-point traction

Ground-contact foam serves as the outsole unit of the Reebok PT Prime Runner FC. This external pad has an adaptive traction capacity that encourages pressure-point traction via nodes and textured portions.

A rubber layer is placed on the heel section. This extra material protects against the abrasive nature of the surfaces. It also heightens traction.

PT Prime Runner FC provides flexibility and cushioning

The midsole unit features a data-mapped design that supports the natural contours of the underfoot. Flexibility is also given attention because the foam isn’t stiff or restrictive.

A removable sock liner adds a bit more cushioning, yet it doesn’t sacrifice flexibility or put any substantial weight. It can be replaced with an insert of the wearer’s choosing.

Lightweight and breathable

The upper unit of the Reebok PT Prime Runner FC makes use of the Ultraknit, which is a form-fitting fabric that is lightweight and breathable.

It conforms to the shape and motion of the foot, allowing it to move naturally throughout the running session. Open-weave cages are placed on both the medial and lateral sections, and they’re meant to heighten ventilation and improve midfoot lockdown.

Holds the foot in place

Printed overlays are strategically placed on the midfoot and heel. These thin add-ons are made to hold the foot in place and prevent it from wobbling.
