It’s a very decent every day training shoe that has great cushioning and a comfortable from the box feel. A no-frills training shoe, that is solid, not spectacular, but great value.
After years in the running wilderness, Reebok is back trying to re-establish itself in the running game. They have in my opinion gone about it, in the right way with the Harmony Road, as it’s a great everyday trainer, providing ample cushioning without any of the marketing bells and whistles attached. It does seem to be rather expensive compared to its outward appearance, but the components within the shoe are top notch.
The Reebok Harmony Road’s jewel is the quality of its midsole compound. Unlike the upper that looks like a cheap end shoe, the CMEVA midsole in this shoe is really excellent. The cushioning and durability if provided was as good as many shoes on the market that are 50% more expensive.
KooshRide foam core is engineered from TPU foam that takes heavy influence from Adidas Boost – the parent company to Reebok, so it’s no surprise the tech is decent in this midsole. There are flex grooves in the forefoot that work in combination with the outsole, to provide a flexible and responsive ride but the overall ‘feel’ on the run is secure and plush not fast and free… This is a mileage midsole for the runner wanting extra pillows underfoot, instead of the snap to push the pace.
No sew overlays, with a very breathable air mesh. It’s a well-worn shoe making construction that many brands are moving away from – but it does deliver a great all round upper, well make, durable and with no hot spots. The shoe fits a little narrow in my opinion so be warned, and that new Reebok logo on the side is a horror show, but that’s personal opinion from someone who grew up minutes from the Reebok head office in the UK as a kid, with a fond memory of the brand pre Cross Fit.
The collar and tongue are very well padded, and give a snug fit, but the toe box is a little cramped compared to some other brands last shapes. But, if you are a relatively narrow foot this is an excellent choice.
Great flex grooves, good coverage with Rubber that is very durable and just enough lug to allow a little light off-road adventure when needed. The Harmony again has a no frills, solid outsole without anything to complain about.
One of many new Reebok running shoes entering the market – but unlike many shoes currently this shoe doesn’t try to be something it’s not. Its built around a great midsole, with superb cushioning properties, and to keep the price relatively competitive in the market to gain some fans, it has been stripped of many of the frills you see on shoes these days. So overall, it’s a great shoe for the price, but it looks like it should be a lot lot cheaper at retail. This is a real shoe, not to judge by its proverbial cover….. Good effort Reebok, a real traditional running shoe built for comfortable miles not to marketing back pages.
