Nike Metcon Crossfit Shoe - New Colors including CAMO!
Nike has recently released it's Crossfit sneaker to compete with the Reebok Nano. It is titled the Metcon 1 and features a ton of great details that will perfectly suit a Crossfit athlete.
The MetCon 1 (short for “metabolic conditioning”) is Nike’s ultimate, all-purpose men’s cross-training shoe. From the flat firm heel to the grooved forefoot design, MetCons are built to provide stability on heavy lifts, flexibility on sprints and climbs, and optimal comfort for distance runs and day-to-day abuse.
It’s the small details that help set the Nike® MetCon 1 apart. A rubber padding on the midsole reduces friction during rope climbs. An extra-durable mesh lining offers much-needed breathability. And Nike’s lightweight Flywire cables help maintain a strong support structure without the bulkiness of some other leading cross-trainers. MetCons also deliver dependable traction that performs on the gym floor, the track, and training grounds far off the beaten path.
