Reebok has launched the Reebok Nano X (Get it now!) – the 10th iteration of their excellent CrossFit training shoe.
It is available now to Reebok Unlocked members – but will be available globally on May 5th.
(Please note we are a Reebok affiliate).
We’ve ordered two pairs (both mens and womens) with express shipping.
Check back here for a full hands-on review, and on our YouTube channel soon.
In the meantime, here’s take a close look at what’s new with this CrossFit shoe.
Here’s some of the launch styles that are available now:
While we wait, let’s take a look.
Let’s start with the side profile – the Nano x is taller – specifically in the heel and tongue/collar.
The upper is “upgraded Flexweave” – it looks different than the original Flexweave.
It’s described as being a soft woven textile upper.
Reebok is claiming a “minimal drop outsole.” At the moment, I’m assuming that means it is unchanged from the Nano 9 at 4 millimeters.
(The “heel to toe drop”, “offset”, or “profile” all refer to the height difference between your heel and your toes.)
Historically, running shoes often have a drop of 10mm or so – whereas training shoes typically go less for versatility.
Reebok claims the comfort is improved with the enhanced collar – that uses foam for comfort.
What’s on the inside?
Reebok is calling the shoe “runnable” – we assume that means MORE cushion than the Reebok Nano 9.
How will this be accomplished?
Lightweight EVA foam cushioning is used, along with a compression molded midsole.
We won’t really know how cushioned it is (or isn’t) until we get hands on.
Having said all that, this is a cross trainer – so don’t expect pillow-like cushion – otherwise you couldn’t lift heavy with the barbell.
The outsole (or the sole) looks unchanged.
The meta-split is still there – that refers to the two piece construction.
If it’s anything like the Nano 9 it will be very flat, very grippy, and very tough.
Check back after 4/30 and we should have a full hands-on write up, including YouTube video review of the Nano X.
