It’s no secret that I am a fitness shoe junkie. I love trying out the latest and greatest, and seem to fall for the majority of running shoes I test out.
I do, however, give honest feedback and appreciate every shoe I try for a different reason. Without a doubt, the new Reebok ZQUICK running shoe is unlike any other I have ever seen.
Reebok is extremely excited about the launch of this shoe that happened just last week. In fact, you may have read about a handful of bloggers attending their Launch Party or might even catch one of their commercials currently airing during the 2014 Winter Olympics.
I thought it was pretty neat to see these three incredible athletes show exactly how “unnaturally quick” they are in one of them.
Yup… that’s these shoes ya’ll.
When I received my pair in the mail, the first thing I noticed was the Z-Rated tired inspired bottoms. Through rubber grids, they are designed to keep you in control, provide traction, and keep your foot in place with the inner bootie.
Over the past week or so, I have tried them in several different ways and love them.
(Reebok Studio Contrast Stripe Tank, PWR Legging, and ZQuick running shoes in Foggy Grey/Purple Vibe)
Here are a few reasons why:
• low-cut for mobility: allows your foot to move naturally while keeping it stable
• extremely lightweight: feels light and flexible enough to also serve as an all-purpose gym shoe
• inner bootie lining: soft bootie fit system designed to keep your foot in place with comfort
And according to Reebok, some additional features to highlight:
• no-sew upper: light and flexible NanoWeb PU cast for breathable protection and support
• inspired by high performance Z-rated tires: designed for uncompromising quickness
• speed control: helps you start, stop and turn on a dime
• underfoot grooves: allows midsoles to flex and expand, increasing ground contact
• light, low profile: EVA midsole designed with new geometry for outstanding handling
• CRTek high abrasion rubber: placed in key wear areas for durability
I have to admit that before actually wearing them, I doubted how great these shoes would be for running. For how flexible and lightweight they are, it just doesn’t seem right. I mean, all the good running shoes out there are packed with support which causes them to feel heavy and clunky right?
Eh. I guess they all don’t have to!
When placing my order, I asked for a size 7.5 because I prefer my running shoes to fit a little looser in order to avoid blistering. For this one, however, I didn’t take into account the inner bootie magic that holds everything in place. I could have for sure used the size 7, which is my actual street shoe size.
I have taken them for a couple of spins on the treadmill and I am very impressed with how they hold up. Just for fun, I set my incline at a ridiculous number and power walked for a few minutes to see just how powerful the grip is.
Pretty flipping strong. I have yet to take them out on a long distance run (dang you, insanely cold temperatures outside!) but I plan to do so when I see the roads plowed more to my liking.
In the mean time, I keep grabbing this shoe for group fitness classes and even weight training. They seem to be the perfect gym and travel shoe for someone who doesn’t want to pack more than one!
Also, I really do like the bootie lining. It feels like my foot isn’t going to go anywhere and the bottoms can endure just about anything with the set of “tires” they’ve got goin’ on. You could definitely say I am a fan!

I Love The Neon Yellow/Punch Pink/Black/White
I usually wear mostly black to the gym, and started getting on the treadmill more regularly. As a female who is six foot one… I normally have to wear men’s shoes. I’m glad these are cute no matter what gender! I am color blind, but I would probably choose something bright to stand out against the black I wear!
I love the purple and grey combo, you make them look good!
