    You guys with the Creeds try them on yet? They feel quite a bit narrower than the Metcon 2's and 3's I've been wearing.

    Same for you?

    I posted about fit a while back on the first drop.. For reference, I had to go 1/2 size up for Frasers compared to other metcon 3's - I think because of the leather lining. For the creeds, I feel like I could have went a full size up. I still need to break them in and see if they loosen up.

    edit - just put them on again and all the tightness for me is at the top of the shoe, right above my arch. I don't know if that part will stretch out or not, there is some canvas reinforcement there. The rest of the shoe feels great at 1/2 size up.

    I lean red/orange, but that's partially cuz I love red. Also, black sole is going to look better long-term than translucent.

    Neither for me. Is there a reason for those two color ways? Sorry they just don’t flow well. But if I had to I’d go red

    Got a 12.5 that ended up not working out for me. It's for sale if anybody in here wants it for a fair price, still DS, shoot me a PM.

    These last couple pics definitely look better for the Metcon 5's than those stock pics, interesting with the different insoles:

    Very interesting. The Hylete Circuit Trainer also has a modular insole system, so they potentially took a current from that company.

    Feel like the two was the height aesthetically. Obviously, we haven’t seen iDs or many colorways. But the five might be a strong performer.

    I don't do crossfit, but I started barbell lifting last fall.

    Wanted something I could do squats, rows, military press with, then some HIIT on a stationary bike or LISS on Treadmill.

    Not into the whole lifting in chucks thing

    I use to attend when stationed in Germany. The gyms in the states are way too expensive even with military discount.

    Ironically, didn’t own a pair of metcons till I stopped going. I do however wear them to the gym for everything except for cardio

    Vs are looking better in those pics. I feel like the blocking will limit the colorway options sadly

    Everyone I know that's done it have said its a lot of fun, but it's really expensive. I honestly don't know anyone that's kept up with it. I don't know how the athletes that participate in the games manage to afford it :lol:

    Heard crossfit can lead to a lot of injuries since you're always pushing for personal best

    I did for a few years used the metcons. I hated doing any wods that required running in them

    I honestly preferred the nano 4

    I did Alpha (Life Time's version of it) for like 6 months and used Metcon 2's and 3's and they were great. Still working my way back from an injury though so just doing lifting/cardio right now. Still use them on my leg days.
