Nike Metcon 6 X – Sizing
Like the rest of the Metcon 6 line – you probably should go 1/2 size up.
Why is this?
The Nike Metcon 6 – being based heavily on the Nike Metcon 5 is a bit narrow up in the toebox.
Therefore, I recommend you order 1/2 size up from your normal shoe size.
There’s no reason to believe the Nike Metcon 6 X is going to be any different than the regular Metcon 6.

Nike Metcon 6 X – In Summary
The Nike Metcon 6 X is now available.
Changes from the Nike Metcon 5 are pretty mild – with the exception being the upper.
The all new upper should be very breathable, and a big step up in comfort.
The Nike Metcon 6 X will be a true enthusiast’s shoe – because of all the callouts to famous Metcon styles.
All the other hardcore CrossFit training features you loved in the Nike Metcon 5 are still here as well – that high traction sole, firm heel, cushioned forefoot, rope wrap, and more.
Overall we like the tweak Nike has done to the styling, and being in Florida we are looking forward to putting the new upper to the test.
