Here’s the newest version of Reebok’s CrossFit shoe – the Reebok Nano X1 Rothco.
Last August 16, Reebok announced a collaboration with Rothco, a tactical and outdoor clothing brand. This limited collection reimagines Reebok’s most iconic fitness silhouettes, the Nano X1, through Rothco’s ultra-functional, military lens. Both Reebok and Rothco have roots in producing functional gear. Rothco has been a figure in the military gear space for over half a century and now has made its mark in fashion and lifestyle.
Here’s some of the styles that you can get now:
Reebok Nano X1 Rothco – Overview
Rothco is known for its camo designs which have become Reebok’s new colorways for Nano X1 – Ultra Violet Camo, Red, White, and Blue Camo, and City Camo. Reebok Nano X1 Rothco comes in a unisex silhouette highlighting minor adjustments sparked by Rothco’s military and outdoor heritage, including chunky laces to simulate Paracord and a pull tab on the heel.
The webbing used in the shoe is the same as what they use in Rothco’s tactical bags. The midsole in this shoe is made from EVA foam, and it is using Reebok’s Floatride Energy cushioning system. The heel counter of the Nano X1 is huge and has an external TPU cage on top of an internal counter. The cage adds stability at the heel to the midfoot of the shoe. The outsole is regular rubber with a multidirectional design for grip.
It has more aggressive traction than the previous versions and has raised rubber sidewall and a lip at the instep of the shoe. It has an improved cushion that you will feel in the heel, especially when running and heel striking. The new toe angle helps in burpees and repeated bounding movements like box jumps and double unders are also comfortable with this shoe.
