Nike React Metcon Training Shoe – New Colorway Light Armory Blue/Thunderstorm/Black

Nike has released a new colorway of their Nike React Metcon shoe: Light Armory Blue/Thunderstorm/Black. Here it is: What’s the key feature of the Nike React Metcon? It’s right in the name – React foam cushioning. React foam is a Nike invention that gives you energy return with every footstep. Originally created for their running shoe line, it’s got great carryover to a cross trainer like the Nike React Metcon. That’s because the WOD (Workout of the Day) in CrossFit can require LOTS of different things. Like running, sprinting, jumping, skipping rope – and much more. And for those high impact activities, you need a foam cushion system that is more forgiving than what is in the Nike Metcon 5 and other shoes. That’s where the Nike React Metcon shines. So, how is this wonder of impact cushioning done? The drop-in midsoles are made completely of React foam. (The "midsole" is the part of the sole that sits between your foot and the outsole of the shoe.) So, React foam provides better cushion – but not at the expense of [Read more …]
