We were fortunate to have Reebok send us a pair of the Reebok ZPump Fusion in the black/solar yellow-white colorway and aesthetically, they look great in person. The solar yellow really pops when paired with black, which is the color that occupies the majority of the upper.

In the past week, we took the sneakers out for a 1-2 mile run on two occasions and we came away pretty impressed with both the fit and performance. First off, the sneakers are light in hand and on foot. The upper is a one-piece, seamless construction and there is no separate sewed-in tongue. Reebok notes that the outsole is inspired by high-performance ZRated tires and we found it to be quite durable and it feels like it would hold up well after several months of daily use.

Normally sneakers with a restricted opening we have had a difficult time getting our foot into the shoe when we’ve gone with our standard size (11), but we managed to slide into these with just a little extra effort and the fit turned out to be great. They hug your foot quite nicely and we would personally recommend going true to size.

The shoes do sport laces, but we feel they are mainly there for aesthetic purposes and may only be helpful for those who just want an even tighter fit. But really, that’s where the Pump system comes into play. The Pump system on this particular sneaker is naturally just under the inside liner of the shoe and really benefits those who want a tighter feel around the midfoot and at the top of the forefoot. And in those two areas is where you feel the extra pressure the most. You do have to give the Pump (located on the lateral side of each shoe at the heel) quite a few ‘pumps’ before feeling the inflation, but you can definitely tell it’s there when in use. We felt like we didn’t personally need the Pump to enhance our fit as the pair we received fit great straight out the box.

If you plan to use these sneakers for running, there is reflective 3M material around each of the lace eye-stays and a strip running down the back heel, which is good to know if you plan to log some miles at night.

Overall, we think the ZPump Fusion makes for a really nice pair of running sneakers, especially for those who are doing 10-20 miles per week, but we can equally see these shoes being great for gym workouts or just as a casual trainer you can slip on.
