Nike has Flyknit technology and adidas has Primeknit, now Reebok wants to break into the knit footwear game with its own line. Remodeling the Reebok Classics, the Massachusetts-based athletics company has created the Zoku Runner. The knit material covers the upper of the silhouette while the side panel features a plastic crosscheck and the heel hosts an embossed branded leather counter.
