Interesting! Wonder how Reebok feels about these. I usually do crossfit workouts in Kobes, wonder how these will do.

Wodcast Podcast reviewed the Metcons and compared it to the Reebok Nano 4 but I can't find anywhere to download and listen on it though.

Seconded. This looks like your run of the mill/generic plastic shoe save for the inflated price tag. mean.gif

Nike makes shoes for damn near every sport including fencing and rowing so why not make one for one of the most heavily rising and popular fitness activities out there?? And no I don't crossfit

I'm excited. More competition means everyone that is currently making stuff in that area will have to step up their game. I want to try these out and see how they compare to other shoes that I've been using from other companies.

Not impressed at all with the colourways.

I Prefer the reeboks.

post #17 of 9814
Not too sure if i am going to try these or nike free trainer 3.0s.

They both have 4mm heel to toe drop. I am going to assume that the metcon will be more "stable"? Idk but i like the looks of the new free trainer 3.0 more then these

Maybe. This has been my hang up with these. No actual talk of the cushioning and how low to the ground they will be. But if the heel is indeed firmer it may be better for squatting then nikes other trainers at least. Firm heel and a very minimal heel to toe drop says they should be ok for deads....idk i think nike is banking on its versatility. Funny that its 2015 and still hard to beat chucks for deads

I deadlift in Free Trainer 5.0's and I think they are pretty stable. These just look too generic, Nike coudve done a much better job.

For squat work I have Adidas Powerlifts, pretty good for $90. They suck for deadlifting though.

Yep Nike finally releases a legit training shoe that is really designed to be used for its intended purpose and many sneakerheads will yawn because they are too lazy to get off the couch to workout.  Only reason to move is to grab some more kicks or snap a few pics for IG. :rollin

I thought the design is fine, not mind blowing but my main interest is in how it performs.

I was very disappointed with the review of the Hypercross and I didn't like the performance of the TR1s. Both shoes looks good but it doesn't perform as promised.

Plus it's not like the Metcons are an eyesore.
post #25 of 9814
I know a lot of people that swear by the reebok nano series and i think nike is just trying to cut into that market.

I still don't get why nike makes a woman's 1.0 and Men don't have one. The womens 1.0 Bionic is basically everything i want. A shoe that puts you basically on the ground. Would be the perfect deadlift shoe.

Thanks, I'd appreciate that. Holding off on buying the new 3.0 Traner Free V3 until I get to check these out.

This is puzzling to me as well but I guess they might feel that for mens, since we tend to be heavier, the 1.0 sole might not be enough cushioning? I think the Hyperfeel TR is the closest we will get, it has a 3mm heel to toe drop.

There will be a $90 Xfit shoe in like aug thats closer to a hyperfeel outsole/midsole.

 

Ill post the link to our blog in about 2 weeks when i can get the review up.    ( Finish Line)

Where's the info on this $90 shoe coming in August?
post #30 of 9814
Thread Starter 
Definitely interested in that lower XFit shoe but August is a long way from now and I am definitely going to need something til then.

Worst comes to worst I pick up some 5.0 on deep discount to hold me over if the Metcon and new 3.0 Trainers aren't as good as I hope.
