    So i preordered the creed shoes on the 27th and got confirmation, got a delay of shipping email on the 7th that it would ship on the 14th, just contacted nike who told me that the item is sold out of the warehouse and can not be shipped. WTF.

    Gotta chat too..

    Edit: my chat guy said it was still set to ship on 12/18...then he gave me a 20% off code and a code for free overnight shipping on next order lol

    Better chat again man, hope you get Carlo. Guy was mad funny too. dropped a "hehehe" too.

    Nice dude. I tried the twitter team and they gave me 15% off. Here's hoping we still get a shipment. I want those so bad lol. Just checked it was the 14th that i preordered as well. I don't understand how they ran out of supply on a preorder.

    Yeah, sounds like mine are getting cancelled too. What a crap release. I don't understand how you can position yourself any better than to pre-order right after they drop.

    And then be told it's going to be delayed, but not find out they're out of stock and likely to be cancelled until the day they were supposed to ship.

    Really mad. Really wanted these.

    Might finally bite the bullet and pick up flyknit 3s. I still have 2 pairs of metcon 1s that are is fine shape. But i love the looks of the Flyknit 3s. Will wait for the discount

    found a pair of metcons knit at a clearance store, then another pair at a factory store. couldn't be happier. wish i worked out more so i can have an excuse to get another pair. very comfortable and supportive shoes once the outsole is broken in :smile:

    Has anyone here used the Tech Trainer? It has the Repper DSX sole, but I haven't seen any coverage on it (likely because it simply dropped "Metcon" from its name)

    I had the DSX 2's for a few months and got rid of them. The heel slip was becoming an issue. I initially bought them for squats/deadlifts, but trying to do calf raises was a real pain when my heel kept trying to slide out. I wouldn't use those shoes even if they were given to me.

    I ended up getting the Metcon frees thanks bruhs

    I don't do any crazy crossfit stuff, just squats, oh press, deadlifts, bench and barbell rows, maybe some hiit on a bike or liss cardio after

    the only downside to the frees is that the soles
    wear out a lot faster than the others. i have a pair of OG metcon 1 that i’ve had since the original release and are still going strong. i’ve had a pair of frees for about 7 months and they’re worn out

    they are a lot more comfortable. especially when going from lifting to cardio or plyo

    For anyone interested, the forefoot cushion in regular Metcon's isn't good. I would choose Frees for better front cushioning.

    Joel Te, of As Many Reps As Possible (who I think is one of, if not the best, Metabolic Conditioning shoe reviews out there) said he was able to do a 5 rep max deadlift PR in the Free Metcons, so I believe you have chosen... Wisely.
