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. This new model sits atop Reebok’s DMX Foam technology and has a sockliner entry system. All of this seems eerily similar to a competitor’s look and colorways that we’ve seen for a while now.

The Reebok Zoku Runner is set for a March 2 release date in both mens and womens colorways. Check out two of its colorways above and let us know what you think.
