Special Offer! Click to see price.



Reebok has designed ZigTech, a unique, dramatic, geometric, zig-zag shaped outsole engineered with a special lightweight foam. ZigTech cushions and absorbs the impact of the heel strike and sends a wave of energy along the length of the shoe, propelling the athlete forward with each step while reducing wear and tear up to 20% in key leg muscles . Energy is transferred horizontally along the zigs, so more of it is returned to the forefoot and the athlete. The sneaker has removable Ortholite foam sockliners to accommodate orthotics and has DMX Shear cushioning panels for added comfort and reduced heel stress.  Comes in many color variations.


The shoe's suede or leather upper is ultra-heavy duty and is resistant to abrasions and scuffs, while the flexible tongue holders help maintain your strength. Its thickly padded collar and tongue will provide additional comfort and ankle support. The abrasion resistant soles stand up to your grip tape and asphalt and the sticky gum rubber keeps your feet glued to your board, so go ahead and ollie off that 8-step. DC's trademarked pattern provides excellent traction and flex to help you grind over rail kinks, stick drop landings, and do the moonwalk afterward. The padded tongue and collar keep your feet feeling cushy for super comfort.  Comes in many color variations.


Skecher's Shape Up lace up features signature details that make this casual shoe line so appealing: top-quality leather construction, seaming details for shape, and logo emblems for modern cachet, but with the added bonus of a workout with every step. Designed with a kinetic wedge and specially sculpted outsole, this kick is designed to work your muscles, helping to tone and strengthen your legs, while you go about your day. These athletic sneakers promote weight loss and will tone your muscles as you walk along with better posture. These ShapeUp shoes come with a How to Walk guide. Comes in many color variations.

I was curious to see what's popular now. Since my kids grew up, sneakers haven't been on my shopping list. It seems to me the prices are a lot less than I used to spend, so that's good!

Oh, I do like that zig pulse running shoe but I tend to wear skater shoes these days. My daughter has a habit of giving me unusual skater shoes. The last one has all the colors in the rainbow and then some - it is on my profile. Love the hub. If I make an impulse purchase on that zig pulse I'll know where to click!
