Good to know

  • The Zquick from Reebok was created with inspiration taken from the tires of racing cars. The sole unit of this running shoe delivers performance and handling that actually resembles how those car tires actually work on the roads. It even has the shape and design of the tire-treads. Essentially, this one makes runners feel more in control of their speed, their rate of movement and how they control their steps on the asphalt.
  • The upper unit of this running shoe uses lightweight, but durable materials in order to deliver a secure, but comfortable running experience. The seamless construction even lets runners wear this one without socks because its fabrics are not irritating to the skin. An overlay system placed on top of the mesh material allows the upper to hug the foot responsibly.
  • The mid-sole of the Reebok Zquick utilizes a foam compound that’s responsive and moderately springy. The full-length foam even allows the natural movement of the foot because of its flexible nature. A sock liner that features antimicrobial properties keep the interior environment clean and healthy for the wearer.
  • A durable rubber is placed in critical areas of the outsole unit. It’s meant to protect the foot against wear and tear. The design of this external unit was even likened to car tires, which means that many horizontal and vertical grooves are seen all over its façade. They spread apart when weight is applied, thus making sure that the underfoot cushioning and impact attenuation is balanced.

The Reebok Zquick is true to its size. It uses the standard measurements when it comes to the men and women’s versions. The heel, midfoot and forefoot sections of this running shoe have medium widths, so it allows those with medium sized feet to acclimate well to it when wearing it.


A high abrasion resistant rubber material is placed on the outsole unit. It protects the rest of the sole unit from wear and tear, thus making sure that the shoe is able to last longer. This material functions like the AHAR outsole used in the Kayano 25.

The Metasplit Flex Grooves are cut deeply throughout the entire external section of the sole unit. They allow the foot to move more naturally, but they also spread out when pressure is applied to them. Such a mechanic helps in delivering a well-balanced underfoot experience for runners, while also giving way to the flexibility of the foot.


The Z-series is a foam material that runs the entire length of the Reebok Zquick. It’s made up of durable materials and components. The underfoot cushioning is reliable, so runners are going to get the most out of it when tackling those training sessions and races.

The Ortholite Sock Liner is an added layer of cushioning to the foot. It provides antimicrobial protection to the wearer while also managing moisture. It can be removed to accommodate medical orthotics.


The upper unit uses a mesh material that’s very comfortable and breathable. It allows air to enter the shoe in order to keep the foot cool and dry at all times.

The seamless design makes the fabrics free from any unnecessary layers and stitching. It permits the wearer to use this shoe even without socks.

The Nanoweb is an overlay system that’s primarily seen atop the midfoot section. Connected directly to the lacing system, it wraps around the foot in a snug, but customizable manner.
