Now that the Nike Metcon 6 is out – the Metcon 5 is getting hard to find – but Rogue Fitness still has the Metcon 5 for sale.

Nike has dropped some new styles of their excellent Nike Metcon 5 this month.

Here’s “Black/White/Gunsmoke/Black”.

Nike Metcon 5 - Black/White/Gunsmoke/Black
The outsole of the Metcon 5 is flat – for stability in lifting weights. It’s really an indoor gym shoe so there is not a lot of deep tread like you would find on an outdoor running shoe.

The Nike Metcon 5 has a 3d printed haptic upper – which is both tough and breathable at the same time.

The "rope wrap" is back on this version of the Metcon. It’s huge – but that’s OK because it looks good.

From the top you can see the overall layout of these shoes. We should note, they are a bit narrow. You may want to go 1/2 size up from your normal size for width.

The laces have "FlyWire" integrated – this helps to really lock the fit in on your foot. Think of it as a light-weight mid-foot strap – almost like that on a weightlifting shoe.

The heel has some handy stats printed on it. One of the things it calls out is the 4mm heel to toe drop (or profile) as listed on the shoe.

Hyperlifts give you an additional 8mm (Mens) of heel to toe drop. This makes it easier to "get low " on squatting movements.
