4.0 out of 5 stars Solid running shoe design, March 1, 2014
By 
This review is from: Reebok Men's Reebok ZQuick Running Shoe (Shoes)
These shoes are probably the closest anyone will ever come to walking on a cloud. I purchased these about a week ago and could not be happier with the purchase. I have slacked on working out for the past several years until a friend convinced me its time to get back in shape. I have been doing some heavy lifting followed by cardio about five times a week. Cardio included strairmaster, treadmill, and ellipticals. When I would run in my training shoes (as a tip-toe walker/runner), my calves would lock up after about ten minutes and I would be in serious pain. I decided it was time to get a good "running shoe" to combat the issue. I tried to nike free run 5.0 which were nice, but there was no heel support due to a bad design so I then tried the Zquicks. Immediately I loved the way they felt and how well they formed to my feet. I have run approximately 10 miles total in these and the pain has all but disappeared. There is still a bit of calf pain due to how I run but that has nothing to do with the shoe. The soles conform to whatever you are running on and there is amazing flexibility. They remind me of a tire tread and offer amazing grip and mobility. The design is well engineered and I believe with proper maintenance, these shoes will last a long time. The support is about the biggest selling point of these. I would suggest getting a test done to see what kind of arch your foot has but for flat arches, this shoe is phenomenal. They are incredibly soft yet offer enough structure to be comfortable on long runs. I may update as I get some more miles in these, but initial thoughts are that this is one great running shoe. I give it 4.5/5 because I dont feel anything is perfect and there could always be room for improvement. That said, my biggest complaint about these is the "sock sleeve" or whatever they call it. Basically, there is an extra layer in the shoe that somewhat mimics a sock. I think in theory its a good idea, but it feels a bit uncomfortable and takes some getting used to. I got blisters on the back of my ankles after the first run ( i wear no show socks) but taller socks probably would have combated that. Overall, I recommend purchasing and I would definitely buy again. Biggest downside is finding somewhere that sells them. Academy sports, Sports Authority, Dicks, Champs and several others do not carry them yet. I found them at Finish Line; I would suggest going there or ordering online.
