Today, Reebok announces the upcoming launch of Zig Kinetica, a transformative new silhouette that channels and returns energy with every stride you take. Zig Kinetica drops globally on February 21st, 2020.
Zig Kinetica will debut with an ad starring legendary mixed martial artist Conor McGregor, in which a mundane clean-up of his son’s bedroom takes a most unexpected turn. The transformative power of the shoe morphs Conor into an action figure that must harness Zig Kinetica’s energy to fight off rogue toys. The launch marks the next phase in Reebok’s “Sport the Unexpected” campaign, celebrating bold risk takers who reshape culture by being anything but expected.
“I absolutely love these, the grip, the stability. I feel the connection from the sole to the material,” said McGregor. “I’ve been around with Reebok a long time now, and each launch, the energy level is climbing. Now we are exploding.”
Reebok’s ZigTech technology, originally introduced on 2010’s ZigPulse silhouette, set a new standard for innovation, function and disruptive design. Transcending its performance-based origin, Zig Kinetica fuses innovative sport tech with sleek style to create a highly functional shoe that seamlessly transitions from gym to street.
Zig Kinetica is built around a distinct zigzag-shaped, energy-return sole that channels and returns kinetic energy using a three-part system:
- Floatride Fuel: Energized bouncy foam helps deliver cushioning feel for everyday needs
- Zig Energy Shell: Channels and returns kinetic energy, while providing a bold aesthetic
- Zig Energy Bands: A unique outsole that expands and contracts like a rubber band to provide spring-like response
Zig Kinetica drops on February 21, 2020. For more information, please visit www.reebok.com.
