Nike SuperRep Go Sizing and Fit

The Nike SuperRep Go runs true to size.

A Men’s Size 11 (my normal size) fits me perfectly.

This shoe runs true to size. A men’s size 11 (my normal size) is perfect in width and length – it’s not too short or long.

The length is perfect, and so is the width.

This shoe fits tightly, but that’s by design.

(My only real complaint is that I wish the shoe had a pull tab on the heel – that would make it easier to put on and take off.)

I’d recommend you order these in your normal shoe size.

Nike SuperRep Go – Cushion and Lateral Support

This shoe really has two standout features – the cushioning and the lateral support.

Let’s talk about that first.

See those semi-circular shapes along the base of the forefoot? Those are the arcs – and the secret to great lateral support.

There’s a ton of foam in the outsole of the SuperRep Go. Just look at that stack height!

A lot of foam means cushion – in the forefoot, midfoot, and heel.

There’s also a very cushioned (almost gel-like) drop-in insole.

Nike SuperRep Go - Drop-in insole or midsole
This drop-in insole has a lot of cushion too – it’s very soft – almost gel-like (but it’s not gel.)

This shoe is meant for bodyweight workouts – I wouldn’t recommend it for weightlifting or strength training – as the heel has too much cushion.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe - Side and Sole
The outsole is primarily made of foam – which is great for cushion. The white part is foam , the gray part is durable rubber for grip and longer life.

What’s even better though is the lateral support in this shoe.

See the semi-circular areas up front? Nike calls those “Arcs”.

And that’s where the outsole comes up high to envelop your foot – both in the forefoot and some in the heel.

Here’s another view of the Arcs – your foot nestles in the valley between the arcs.

And that means outstanding lateral (side to side) support.

There’s features on the outsole as well to support the Arc.

Cushion and lateral support – perfect for HIIT bodyweight workouts, circuit classes, and more.

But this is mostly an indoor shoe.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe - Side View
A wide base and the arcs make for great lateral (side to side) support.

As you can see on the outsole, it’s mostly foam (white in the photos below.)

The gray part is durable rubber – for traction and long life – but there’s still a lot of exposed foam.

Technically this shoe has enough cushion for running, but I wouldn’t use it as such – it won’t last long.

The other part of this is the upper – it’s very minimalistic.

This is a plus for keeping down weight, comfort, and breathability – but it wouldn’t be durable enough for tough outdoor use – in my opinion.

Nike SuperRep Go – Lighweight Upper

Let’s talk more about that super-lightweight upper.

It’s so thin it is see-through!

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe - Upper Closeup Mesh
Breathable? Yes! How could it not be? It’s see-through in some places!

Not just on the sides, but in the toebox area you can see daylight through the mesh.

This is a very breathable shoe – how could it not be?

The mesh in the forefoot is thicker but still light-weight and breathable.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe - Daylight through Mesh Upper
You can see daylight through the front mesh.

It also has “ribbing” on the sides that Nike claims will work to make your fit more comfortable.

Honestly, I’m not sure it does anything – but that’s OK, it seems to be a comfortable fit as it is.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe - Arcs
The ribbing is the vertical stripes on the shoe in the background. That’s not just a print but the material is actually "ribbed".

The tongue is paper-thin in this shoe as well. Not that it is a problem – but just be aware of that.

Nike SuperRep Go – Feel in the Gym

So, how does it work in the gym (or hotel or living room?)

It works as advertised – those Arcs and the wide base provide great lateral support.

Closeup of the forefoot area of the outsole. See that width? That helps with lateral stability too.

Side to side motions are secure and easy.

It also delivers on the cushion too – there’s just so much foam, it works well.

Having said all that – just remember – this is a bodyweight workout shoe.

It’s too much smooshy cushion for barbell weightlifting.

Here’s one of the two "arcs" – they keep your foot locked in place.

Nike SuperRep Go Versus Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe.

There’s not too many shoes like the SuperRep Go – so let’s compare it to something that is close – sort of.

The Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit has a very minimal, lightweight upper -and a lot of cushion too.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe versus Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe
Let’s compare the SuperRep Go to another lightweight, well cushioned shoe – the Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit.

It’s a running shoe, but given the above, it’s a reasonable candidate for a bodyweight HIIT workout indoors – because it has lots of cushion.

In fact, as you might tell from the name this shoe has Nike’s excellent React foam.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe versus Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe
The Infinity Run has a LOT of React foam. And this foam offers crisp rebound and soft cushion. It gives you energy back with every footstep.

This foam is soft but it also offers crisp rebound and energy return.

They make great running shoes for those of us that want cushion.

But, React foam is expensive. These shoes are currently $160.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe versus Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe - Sole to Sole
The Infinity Run has a lot of durable rubber (blue) for long life outdoors on asphalt. The SuperRep only has a little (gray) and is really meant for indoors usage mostly.

The foam in the SuperRep is substantial, but it can’t hold a candle to React foam.

It’s soft and cushioned, but doesn’t give you the magical bouncy feel of a lot of React foam.

Having said that though – the SuperRep is the champ when it comes to lateral support – thanks to the Arcs we described earlier.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe versus Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe - Side
The Infinity Run doesn’t offer the lateral support of the SuperRep Go though – the "arcs" on the SuperRep Go really do work as intended.

The Infinity Run Flyknit can’t compare in that category.

Also, while this shoe does have a lightweight upper, it’s made from Nike’s FlyKnit. It’s pretty close to the SuperRep as far as being light – but it’s more comfortable because it has significant stretch to it.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe versus Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe Heel Again
You can see here both are wide shoes – both in the forefoot and heel areas.

The React Infinity Run Flyknit is a more versatile shoe in my opinion.

It has a lot of durable rubber on the outsole – to keep that delicate React foam from being abraded.

You can run outdoors on asphalt with these shoes – and still get lots of cushion indoors for bodyweight HIIT workouts.

The React shoe is lighter by a full ounce – 11 ounces for the Infinity Run and 12 ounces for the SuperRep Go (Both are a Men’s size 11.)

Having said all that, just remember that the React shoe costs 60% more than the SuperRep.

The Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit is more versatile, but it’s also more expensive by a lot. It also doesn’t have the lateral support.

Nike SuperRep Go Shoe Review – In Summary

As an indoor shoe for bodyweight circuits this shoe delivers.

It’s pretty cheap ($100) and that’s good.

I wouldn’t recommend it for weightlifting or running outdoors – but that’s not what it is for.

Nike SuperRep Go Training Shoe - Another Side View
Nike SuperRep Go – lightweight and cushioned shoe with lateral support – great for indoors bodyweight workouts.
