Hi, guys!

I’m actually on a train to New York City right now. My friends at Reebok (through Fitfluential) invited me to their ZQUICK launch event tomorrow morning, so I’m heading down for the night so I can be there bright and early for all of the activities.


Rumor has it that the event will be complete with music, obstacle courses (so attendees can test out the ZQUICK shoes), and celebrity appearances, including Olympic gold medalist, Aly Raisman. Remember when I saw her at the airport and totally geeked out? I hope I get to chat with her tomorrow! The event sounds like a lot of fun, right? I am really looking forward to it!


Ok, so I bet you’re wondering what these ZQUICK shoes are all about, right? Here’s a little summary and video from Reebok:

ZQUICK takes inspiration from Z-rated sports car tires, which are rated for speeds in excess of 149mph. Essentially, ZQUICK provides the same speed and handling for your feet.

The key to good handling tires is maximum ground contact; in tires it’s called a contact patch. It’s the amount of area in contact with the ground.  More area is better for handling and the more surface area means more distributed force and better grip.

For handling we also wanted to take into account the dynamics of the foot itself. Your foot changes in dimension when you put weight on.  When your foot is completely weighted, it’ s about 5mm wider than when it’s in the air.  That’s your own naturally handling feature.  Your foot spreads out on impact to distribute force over a broader base.  To accommodate for that natural handling feature we built slashes into the bottom unit that go all the way to the lasting board so that your Z-series shoe spreads with you.


And, of course, I’ll be sure to report back all about the event and what I thought about the ZQUICK shoes. And there may or may not be an associated giveaway on CNC too! {wink wink}
