Reebok One Cushion Shoe Review & Giveaway

To help me train for the Tufts 10K, Reebok sent me a pair of their new Reebok One Cushion shoe which I’m loving more and more with each run!

The Reebok ONE Cushion is part of a whole new collection Reebok is in the middle of launching that I’m super excited about! I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for the future but first a little bit about the Reebok One Cushion.

Reebok One Cushion

The first thing I noticed about the shoes is that they’re bright (don’t worry, they do have more muted colors but I love me some neon in my life after wearing the black, grey and neutrals to work)! A nice wake up for when it’s cold outside and the sun has barely peaked out yet. They looked a little bulky but they’re actually quite light at 7.7 oz for women and 9.9 for men (similar to my Waverider 16s for reference). The shoe also runs wide enough for those that need it but narrow enough for tiny feet like mine. I wear a size 7 usually and I could have gone down half a size but it wasn’t major deal if I didn’t since my feet tend to swell up a bit after 3 hours of running. My foot first felt loose in the shoe but after I tightened my shoe laces, I was ready to hop, skip and most importantly run!

One Series

The Reebok ONE Cushion is built-in three zones. All of them fused together to get you anywhere and everywhere faster and injury free no matter where or how the foot lands when you run – of heel, middle, toe. The three-foam midsole, decoupled outsole, and stable lateral arch area is designed to maximize comfort and performance. Although the shoe is “cushioned” as the name implies, I found greater flexibility than expected and is perfect for anyone that craves a more natural fit in a neutral trainer. It responded quite well to my unique run like a duck gait cycle instead of trying control it.

More specifically Reebok One Cushion is broken down into three functional zones:

  1. The Contact Zone – cushions the foot and absorbs shock upon landing
  2. The Midstance Zone – lightweight foam that encourages a smooth midfoot transition off of the heel
  3. Propulsive Zone – a high-rebound foam that gives runners a high level of responsiveness during toe-off.

Reebok One Zone Function

You would think that with three zones, the shoes might feel funky with one part being too soft, another too hard, until you’re more discontent than Goldy Locks, but it was quite the opposite. All three zones are seamlessly integrated together where you don’t notice any discomfort at all as you run besides a smooth run!

I found them to work great for my short treadmill speed workouts such as the one I did when I only had 20 minutes to spare in between working:

Tufts 10K trianing

or my longer medium range (8-10 miles outside)

Reebok One Morning Run

The only hiccup I had with the shoes were the shoelaces. They kept untying so I had to triple tie them to make sure they don’t come undone.

Overall it’s a great neutral shoe that has happily joined into my normal shoe rotation program (I use different shoes because I believe it makes my shoes last longer.)

And because I loved the Reebok One Cushion shoes so much, I asked if they would mind giving a pair out to one of my readers, which they kindly agreed to!

  1. When I started running I had crappy shoes which led to an injury that took over a month to fully heal. A nice good quality pair of shoes helped me finish my first half marathon. These would be a great addition! Thanks

  2. I’m all about crazy colored shoes so I’d say if go with Neon Yellow/Blue Move/Blue Blink/Flat Green (V47302) but I saw a ton I’d be very happy with !

  3. These look like an interesting new shoe. I’ve been running in the Wave Rider 16s lately and loving them. I would go with the neon yellow/blue combo as I really like bright colored shoes.

  4. Torn between the Neon Yellow/Blue/Green and the Gray/Pink. I’m feeling like Goldilocks about shoes in general, lately. Would love to try these in my ongoing search for a perfect pair. (Hate when my fave running shoes get discontinued!!)

  5. NEON they are my jam right now. The brighter the better. I really want to try these shoes I’m a big Reebok fan already and LOVE the new shoes they have been producing! Just ask my husband who cut me off from anymore shoe buying 😉

  6. This look so cushiony and comfortable–would love to try and I love the neon ones in your pics! Hope I win! 🙂

  7. I would want the sonic green/blue/pink pair. After wearing blacks and greys during the day, I want my running clothes to be fun and bright! Every time I look down at my current shoes I almost laugh because they are the furthest thing from my personality, but that’s what running is doing to me!

  8. I love all of the color combos but I would have to say the Neon Yellow/Blue Move/Blue Blink/Flat Green is my favorite! These look so comfy!

  9. I would definitely chose the neon yellow like you have 🙂 They look sweet! Running shoes don’t always last very long so it would be awesome to have these!!

  10. I’d love the Sonic Green/Trust Blue/Optimal Pink ones! These are super cute, they’d definitely spice up my running routine!:)

  11. Neon workout gear seems to be the new thing.

    I appreciate the review on these shoes. My wife and I do a lot of at home workouts so we needed shoes with more support all around, but I’m going to start running more often and needed shoes for that too.
