A very comfortable shoe
on April 4, 2012
I just bought these shoes a couple days ago while searching for the perfect tennis shoe. I looked at my local outlet stores and tried on various name brand shoes, attempting to find the right fit. I tried Nike, Sketchers, Reebok and Under Armour. Out of all those choices, the Reebok Zig Activate were definately the most comfortable shoes I found. Even though they are $110, these are probably the closest shoes I've worn that could be described as "walking on air". Initially they are a little stiff, but even then they were way more comfortable than any of the other name brands I tried and didn't like as much. As I wore them on the first day and even the second day, I couldn't believe how insanely light and molding to your foot the fit on these are. Which is great since that same day I walked quite a bit at my local mall and other stores trying them out to see how well they do under experience. So far, these are perfect for my getting out shoe and the design on these shoes are very unique and look amazing. I particularly like how they take the impact of each step you take, essentially making each step full of energy and feeling great. I'd definately say the advertisement that they are "energy drink for your feet" is very accurate and well spent money.
The only real question I have is how durable these shoes will be in the long run. I've seen several reviews here at Amazon claiming they tear up quickly and don't last long for the fairly big price tag. I'm hoping that isn't the case though, because I don't use these shoes for running or walk long distances at a time. Basically, I use the shoes practically for every day walking and not specifically for training to run a marathon or to be an Olympic runner or any such sport activity. So, I'm expecting to wear the Zigtech for a long time before I have to replace them, although only time will tell whether or not durability can be used to describe these shoes.
Other than that though, I'd highly recommend these shoes to anyone looking for light, comfortable and stylish shoes. I don't give many shoes a 5 out of 5 star rating, but these lived up to my expectations and then some. I'd buy these again as well, assuming the first pair lasts for a decent amount of time.
