The Ultimate Off-Road Running Shoe

rampage-jackson-reebok-atv-shoeNOTE: This is a product review. Although I am a Reebok Ambassador, I am not obligated to say great things about the product if I don’t like it. It  just so happens I love about 99.9% of their stuff. I choose to work with brands I believe in. Reebok is one of them. 🙂

It was nearly 5 months ago Steve got his first pair of Reebok ATVs. I was SO jealous! They were rediculously cool! Promoted big by A-Team (Mr. T) star and MMA fighter, Rampage Jackson, the news of this off-road shoe quickly became hot news.

Well, FINALLY, I got to join the dirty fun! I have to admit, Steve was pretty skeptical at first when he got his. But, after injuring his knee last year, he said the ATVs were the only shoe he’d wear outdoors because of the insane stability. They just made him feel safer. Well, that went in one ear and out the other…until I hurt my ankle shortly after. Then I wanted a pair!

Reebok ATV LadiesNow ATVs are out for women and I am proud to say I was one of the first to give them a try – and I love them. Not only do they have a cool looking design to them, they have all kinds of perks. Check it out!

1.) No more pebbles. If you are tired of picking rocks out of your shoes, this shoe is the answer. The sole design is a lot more open, and the rounded edges and overall design doesn’t allow for stuff to get wedged between cracks. This makes them easy to clean – and less likely to bring your dirty run inside your clean house.

2.) No more slipping. They have a super-gripping sole that can give you traction on all kinds of surfaces – dry or wet.

Space craft3.) No more twisted ankles. The lugs (the round knobby things on the bottom) are like kickstands in every direction surrounding the center of the shoe. It’s nearly impossible to turn your ankle because of this support.They kinda remind me of a space craft or a tripod.

It’s that wide stance (like an ATV) that gives the shoe such amazing stability.

4.) No more slow runs. The 19 lugs dig into ground to give you better power and secure footing in sand, mud, snow and grass.

ATV 195.) No more boring runs. With the Reebok ATV, you are no longer confined to the sidewalk. You can run anywhere safely. Not only can you take more scenic trails, but they are great for nice leisure hikes too!

The hardest part of owning this shoe is getting it dirty! They are SO pretty – I have to admit, it hurt a little “breaking her in” BUT that’s why I bought Reebok shoe cleaner – and it worked like a charm! I took these puppies home, gave them a good scrub with the shoe cleaner (which has a built-in brush) and they came out as good as new. HOWEVER, if you plan on abusing these bad boys, choose your color accordingly!)

PS ladies, I have bought several pair of men shoes when I couldn’t find a color I liked and I couldn’t tell that they fit me any differently. So, it’s worth a try if you want one of the guy’s black pair so you can reeeeeally get them muddy!!

Here’s a great video explaining the technology of the shoe.

Reebok ZigQuick Fire

It’s a short sale, so the deal expires 6/28 at 11:59 PM.
*Excludes Reebok CrossFit Items

My Newest Addition: Reebok ZigQuick Fire

I flippin LOVE the color combinations they have for this shoe. While I don’t prefer standard Zigs (only because I feel like they make my feet look like snow skiis), this Zig is a more low profile Zig (the technology in the sole), and is much more streamlined and compact. They are super lightweight and comfy.

The New Reebok, Product Review: Should You Rock the Boks?

I recently had the privilege to try several new pair of Reebok shoes. Although I have not been asked to do a product review by the company, since I’ve had so many questions and they have so many stinkin’ styles, I decided to ‘learn up’ on the styles I had and pass along what I think about my new kicks so you could decide whether you want to Rock the Boks too.

First, before I begin. 2 things. One, I won’t tell you how great a product unless I think it’s great – period. If I don’t like something, I’ll tell you. Two, the Reebok I once knew is long gone. The once boring-and-behind company has taken a huge leap ahead, joining forces with CrossFit, and taking its products into the stratosphere of elite fitness training. So far, everything I’ve tried – shirts, tanks, capris, crossfit gear, socks and shoes, I’ve loved and been surprised by. Now, on to my shoe review! 🙂

Quick Product Review

ZigLite Electrify – $99

They come in 9 color combinations for women. I have the Gravel (charcoal grey) and Dynamite Pink ones.

Quick Review: They are great if you like a lot of support. The ZigTech sole is very cushiony. I normally run in a thinner, lighter weight shoe, but I ran in these last weekend and my body had no complaints. Although I don’t like for my foot to feel “strapped in”, I know many people need more foot support. Another issue for some is if you have big feet, these shoes will make your feet look even bigger. Girls with small feet look totally hot wearing them and they’re perfect for men with little man syndrome ;). I, myself, prefer less cushion, less material, less of pretty much everything. But, with that said, I also have worn these a lot because I’m a sucker for pink and they are comfortable shoes. I do get a lot of compliments when I wear them. (I think it’s the flashy pink zig design that draws people’s eye to them.) I prefer to wear these when I’m weight training because they match a lot of my gym clothes. But, like I said, I ran in them and they did do really well if you like all that shoe on your feet. No complaints, but not my favorite.

RealFlex Fusion TR – $99

They come in 12 color combinations for women. I have the Zinc Grey, Modern Blue & Charged Green ones.

Quick Review: I LOVE the color combinations they offer with these! Pink and green, killer pink and black ones and awesome electric green and black ones. If you look at the other colors, you can see they have a really cool pattern to them as well. As far as the how the shoe feels, they are actually one of my favorite shoes to wear. It’s almost like wearing a sock. They are insanely light and the material is super thin. The RealFlex sole of the shoe are made up of little cubes of rubber, which make the shoe flex in all directions. This is perfect for CrossFit training, plyometrics, running and pretty much any kind of training if you like the feeling of free movement, which I do. Bottom line, I love everything about these shoes. If I had every color, I would wear them every day. The only problem I have is I don’t have clothes to match them or I’d wear them more. Looks like I’ll have to go shopping. 🙂

SmoothFlex Cush Run – $79

They come in 8 color combinations for women. I have the Black & Buzzed Blue ones.

These shoes are super comfortable. They have the same type of sole, with what they call “nodes” that look like miniature ice cubes to me, but their design is to improve flexibility in all directions, making it a great cross trainer. From what I understand the SmoothFlex Cush Run sole is designed to be more durable than the RealFlex Fusion shoe and are great for outdoor training. The added cushion and rubber makes sense as soon as you step on a pebble. 😉 I really love their info videos that helps you understand what each shoe is made for. They really helped me a lot when it came to choosing the right shoe for the right activity.

Bonnie’s Pick:

Here are some of my favorite colors:
