Reebok Reintroduces The Zig Sole With The Kinetica Concept_Type 1

Oct 30, 2019

In 2010, Reebok changed the sneaker landscape with the introduction of its innovative ZigTech platform, bringing enhanced, high-tech cushioning to the brand’s prolific lineup. In effect, this new system would aid athletes with propulsion and foot health, helping to take the stresses of impact off of the shin. Now, the company has decided to bring an upgraded iteration the promising foam-based sole back this fall, adorning the bottom of the new Kinetica Concept_Type 1 sneaker.

The Kinetica Concept_Type 1 debuted earlier this year at both New York and Paris’ Fashion Week events, but now, Reebok has announced that the shoe will make its way to retail shelves. Each variant will boast the revised Zig sole, which encompasses three specific variables — an Energy Shell, Energy Web, and Floatride Fuel — to create a quintessential athletic shoe that straddles the line between fashion and function. Microvent mesh and adjustable guidance bands adorn the exterior of the shoe, creating a breathable platform that’s also visually encapsulated thanks to its vastly improved design. To round things out, the Kinetica is almost entirely devoid of stitching, giving it a seamless, streamlined look that’s sure to set it apart from its competition. Head to Reebok’s website to be notified when the shoes drop on November 8 for $180.
