Running is one of the best physical activities you can participate in. This is true not only due to the convenience (which we will admit plays a large part). Running is convenient because all you need is a pair of shoes and even that is not strictly necessary. As long as you have somewhere to go, you can always run to stay in shape.
Running is also crucial for maintaining your overall health, just like any form of cardio exercise. Cardio has been proven to markedly increase your life expectancy. Regular cardio exercise greatly diminishes your risk of heart attacks and strokes, two of the more dangerous medical conditions regarding Americans killed.
Our bodies were designed to run, it is our primary method of transportation, and it was prehistoric man's only way to hunt prey and feed his family. Studies have even shown that we run better when we run barefoot, as we were biologically designed to do so.
While running barefoot is quite frankly inconvenient thanks to the possibility of injury, you always have the option of investing in a suitable pair of running shoes. The best running shoes replicate barefoot running by providing your feet with enough flexibility so that running feels as natural as possible.
Today we will be looking at the Reebok Sublite Escape 3.0 MT running shoes, but before we get to our review, there are a few things we will address. In the next few paragraphs, we will look at some features that go into making the best running shoes and what customer needs they cater to.
One feature that you will want in your running shoes is a good measure of grip. Having grippy shoes is not only a matter of being able to run and walk more easily, but it is also a matter of safety. Shoes lacking in grip can make you slip and fall, especially while running, which can result in injuries, even severe ones like broken bones.
Sports shoes tend to feature treads designed to make them as grippy as possible on a certain terrain. The terrain that the sole is designed for usually depends on the intended purpose of the shoe. For example, trail running shoes will feature an outsole which is designed to better cope with dirt tracks and stones.
The shaft length of your running shoes is another important consideration to make before your purchase. High top shoes tend to give you more ankle support, but they are also a little more restrictive when it comes to running form. Low tops sacrifice ankle support for more freedom of movement.
When it comes to traditional running shoes, you will find low tops and mid tops are more common than high top sneakers. High tops are more popular for basketball shoes and other sports which require a good deal of ankle support.
The Sublite Escape 3.0 MTs are made by Reebok. Reebok is an American company of British origin which specializes in sporting goods. They are one of the more well-known makers of sporting equipment. Reebok has existed for almost fifty years, so they certainly have some experience in their field.
These shoes are an excellent choice if you are looking for something which is not too pricey but still manages to be highly comfortable. Beyond comfort, these shoes are also durable, so you won't have to worry about buying another pair anytime soon after your purchase.
When reviewing shoes, we love models that require no break in period as they don't get our feet sore and we don't have to deal with discomfort during the review process. Thankfully, the Reebok Sublite Escape 3.0's are one of those pairs of shoes that require almost no break in period to be worn comfortably.
Beyond the lack of a break in period, there are other features which make these shoes incredibly comfortable. On the inside, these shoes feature a foam padded collar and tongue so that your ankle doesn't end up irritated after a long run.
We were huge fans of the memory foam padding on the insole of these shoes, making them a joy to wear for anything from a short walk to an hour long run. Thankfully, the synthetic and fabric construction of these shoes means that they are both comfortable and durable enough to last.
Most customers tend to be highly impressed by the memory foam insole featured in these shoes, much like us. One customer stated that the interior of these shoes is so soft that you can even wear them without socks if you are in a rush and you won't end up with any irritation on your feet.
On the other hand, some customers had issues with the sizing running slightly large. For some customers, there may be a little bit of extra wiggle room between your foot and the wall of the shoe. Some people seem to prefer this while others do not, we will leave the judgment up to you.
These shoes can be found in many brick and mortar retailers due to their relative popularity. They may also be purchased online from Amazon and other retailers. They typically retail for around 40 to 70 dollars, making them one of the more affordable options regarding name brand running shoes.
If you are looking for shoes which are highly comfortable, you will certainly love the Reebok Sublite Escape 3.0 MTs. They are the perfect choice for an everyday shoe thanks to their relatively high level of comfort. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to leave them down in the comments section.
