I don’t know exactly what Reebok changed in their running line up a few years back. I don’t know who the dev team is, where they’re located, or who is running it for them. But whatever they are doing, they should keep it up. I’ve run several long distance runs in these, both indoor and outdoor, and I can sum them up in one word – surprising.
Surprising because of the way in which reebok is typically viewed in the running community, and my expectations of the shoe itself. I tested the Reebok line up last year, and was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t really expect that they’d be all that different, but I was quickly proved wrong. This is a great shoe at a great price point, and makes for an easy, secure run.
The best part of this shoe is the balance. It’s an easy fit to a forefoot strike, yet has just enough mid foot cushioning to allow for a heel strike as well. Granted, it’s not the best of both worlds, but pretty close. The mesh upper has a great, wide toe box (my preferred fit) while securing wrapping the medial portion of your foot for maximum play and stability. While I wouldn’t use this shoe to do much track work, I would – and did – use this shoe middle to long distance runs (up to 10 miles, that’s my cap for this year.)
The outsole is something they call DMPRTek; it’s lightweight and long lasting, which is about all you need. I’ve put over 300 mile s on this shoe (it’s hard to go to something else when it’s so darn comfortable), and it’s still holding up. The bottom line? Ditch the attitude about proper running shoes, and give Reebok a spin. For more information Premier Road Supreme II and other Reebok footwear, visit www.reebok.com or www.amazon.com/reebok.
Hi there, just changed into alert to your weblog via Google, and located that it’s truly informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels. I will appreciate for those who continue this in future. Numerous other folks will likely be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!
I am relative new to running and have completed 4 half marathons in the last 3 years that I’ve commenced running. Save my last, which was completed in 02:02:02, my earlier 3 runs were poorly timed. I have been using Nike Lunar Eclipse for most of my runs, mainly since it provides stability, which i need due to pronation. Of late, when tired, I tend to shift more to fore foot striking and i find Nike lunar Eclipse to be extremely poor on fore foot cushion. Since most of my runs are on the road, a friend suggested i try the Reebok Premier road supreme. Presently i am training hard to improve my PR and really need a shoe that can provide cushioning and stability while allowing me to speed. Do you recommend i try the Reebok?. Are there any other shoes that could be better?. Actually i am quite disillusioned by Nike. These shoes just per-maturely fall apart.
I actually wouldn’t recommend these, as this review is from a couple/few years back. Are you sure you need pronation correction? And also, why do you only shift to forefoot striking when tired? I run solely with a fore foot strike, as 1.) studies have shown it lessens injury and 2.) it suits my biomechanical motion.
Have you had your gait analyzed by a local running store?
