    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. :smh:

    John "Moose" Mustafa joins Armen Hammer, Eddie Ifft, and Scott McGee as they chat about recent big lifts, changes to Regionals, NorCal CrossFit, the Nike Metcon 1s, the question of the week, then get into Grid, the Gridscore, then get into the lightning round.

    At the 17:47 mark.

    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 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.
