Here’s a sharp looking new colorway of the Nike MetconSF – Seaweed/Light British Tan/Green Spark/Black What’s the Nike MetconSF? It’s the first all-terrain Nike Metcon shoe. This shoe repels mud for superior grip and it even has water draining ports to keep your weight down. Do they work? Yep – absolutely they do – we know because we tested them. But there is more to the shoe than just those crazy deep lugs on the boot-like outsole. The Nike MEtconSF is made from materials that won’t absorb water. That means when your feet inevitably do get waterlogged – on your mud run or obstacle course race – you’ll shed the extra water weight as quickly as possible. The upper, insole, and midsole are all made from non-absorbent materials. But, there’s more. See that high elastic leg opening? That’s called a gaiter – and it is there to keep debris out of your shoe – for when you step into the swampy mud. There’s no traditional laces either. That means no soggy, muddy laces. Instead, you get Nike’s innovative speed-lacing system. [Read more …]
