It’s been out on the market for a while now, but we’re still fascinated with the technology in Reebok’s ZigTech shoes.
It’s got a unique look, that’s for sure. But beneath all of those wiggly bumps on the bottom of your shoe is solid science, designed to protect you from shin splints, knee injuries and the wear and tear of hard training.
As the folks at Reebok explain:
“Traditional energy return is focused only on the vertical impact of the heel strike,” said Reebok’s Head of Advanced Innovation, Bill McInnis. “In contrast, ZigTech is designed to transfer energy horizontally along the zigs so the athlete gets that energy back in the forefoot.”
The lightweight, flexible bottom unit, minimalist upper, and whisper-quiet ground contact also contribute to making ZigTech a new standard in running and training footwear. In fact, by wearing Reebok’s ZigTech footwear, training longer just got easier. The technology causes up to 20% less wear and tear on key leg muscles, especially the shins and hamstrings.
That’s certainly the case with Reebok’s Men’s Zig Dynamic Running Shoes.
They’re built for the gym, the trail and the diamond. They’ve got the ubiquitous ZigTech sole, designed to provide the perfect balance of energy efficiency and cushioning.
They also feature a SmoothFit upper, designed to minimize irritation and rub, and a Transition Bridge for optimal heel-to-toe handling. The synthetic upper provides lightweight comfort and support.
