What do you get with the Nike Metcon 5 for women?

It has specific stability for heavy lifting (squats, deadlifts, and Oly lifting).

But it also has traction made for speed, and durability where you need it – thanks to it’s “zoned” durability.

There’s also a small drop-in wedge called a “Hyperlift”.

This insert (which is also compatible with all prior versions of the Metcon) will give you an additional 6mm of heel to toe drop (for a total of 10mm in the women’s shoe.)

What are these good for? Think heel raise for easier squats, wall balls, and pistols.

You’ll notice that the low, flat heel is also wider – thanks to the diamond shape.

The 3D “haptic” print on the top of the shoe adds lightweight durability where it’s needed. And you can see it’s more dense where there is more wear – and less dense elsewhere.

The directional traction on the outsole wraps up the side of the shoe for grip when climbing a rope and speed when sliding down.
