Here’s where you can get these shoes (They go on sale March 1st, 2020):
What’s so great about the Reebok Nano 9?
It’s the shoe that combines performance in the WOD with all-day wearability.
It was also built for the CrossFit community, by the CrossFit community – and you can see that it proudly bears the CrossFit name.
The Nano 9 was re-engineered to take your training outdoors and in the real world – and not just in the box.
This version of the shoe has a Flexweave upper – that’s the part that covers your foot.
It is a light-weight synthetic material that uses a figure-8 weave to provide both toughness and breathability.
This version of the shoe (as compared to the Reebok Nano 8) has a midsole that offers additional cushioning to support you during sprints and short runs.
(These are definitely CROSS TRAINING shoes – so they don’t have the massive amounts of cushion that you would find in a running shoe.)
But that’s ok because the CrossFit WOD requires a lot of things beyond running and sprinting.
How about lifting heavy barbells – whether in the back squat, deadlift, or the Oly lifts?
The Reebok Nano 9 has a firm and stable heel – just like a lifting shoe.
That means you can lift heavy in a safe and efficient manner.
The Reebok Nano 9 has a versatile 4 mm heel to toe drop.
That’s a very mild heel raise – but it lets you do so much more in these shoes.
(Compare all this to your typical “lifter” weightlifting shoe with a 20mm heel raise.
Those are heavy, clunky shoes – and just walking around in them feels weird – forget running or jumping.
How about rope climbs?
The Reebok Nano 9 sports rope-tec – that’s where that super tough and durable outsole wraps up around the midfoot of the shoe – giving you the perfect place to grip a rope.
Combine that with the tough-as-nails Flexweave upper and you have a great shoe for rope climbs.
Rope climbs can SHRED a normal running shoe – the friction of the rope is like a hot knife through butter on those foam cushioned outsoles and sock-like uppers.
How about burpees, box jumps, and other high impact activities (like double-unders!)
The Reebok Nano 9 has a two-piece outsole that Reebok calls Meta-Split – and it helps with all these moves.
It’s got just enough cushion for these higher impact activities – without making the shoe too mushy.
Yep – the CrossFit WOD has all of that and more.
