The Reebok Nano X PR is coming soon – Reebok claims it is updated with lightweight materials to help you get that extra rep or lift that extra kilo. But how lightweight is it? That’s what we’ll cover here.

Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review – On Our YouTube Channel

Here’s an in-depth review of the Nano X PR, from our YouTube channel:

By the way, we have high expectations for this shoe. The Reebok Nano X was a runner-up in our Best CrossFit Shoes for 2020 review.

Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review – Is It Lightweight?

We did a weigh-in and compared the weight of the Nano X PR to all the other Nano shoes released in 2020.

Here’s the results:

(All shoes are a Men’s US Size 11)

  • Nano X Froning Edition – 15.0 ounces per shoe
  • Nano X Regular Edition – 14.2 – 14.4 ounces per shoe (we weighed 4 shoes in total) – let’s call it a 14.3 average.
  • Nano X PR – 14.2 (left) and 14.6 (right).

So, when you add them up, a pair of Nano X PR weighs 28.8 ounces – or just about exactly the same as the regular Nano X.

While the Nano X PR is a nice looking shoe – there’s really no weight savings to be found in this shoe.

By the way, if you watched the video you’ll know that the Nano OG (a re-launched version of the original Nano) is 3 ounces lighter at 11.3 ounces per shoe.

But, the Nano OG doesn’t benefit from all the improvements Reebok has made over the last 10 years – find out more in our Nano OG review.

Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review – What’s New and Improved?

OK, so unfortunately there really isn’t any weight savings in the Nano X PR. But it does look very nice – and has all the great performance features of the regular Nano X.

Let’s take an up close look.

Reebok Nano X PR Versus Nano X Regular Review - Front View
You can see from the front view that the Reebok Nano X PR keeps the same shape (and sizing) as the regular Nano X. That toebox has glorious width to it. The Nano continues to be the shoe for those with wide feet.
Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review - Other Side
Heel to toe drop is probably 4 mm. This low profile shoe is versatile – so you can lift, run, jump, and more.
Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review - Outsole
The de-coupled outsole helps prevent shock from traveling from the heel to the rest of your foot – at least according to Reebok.
Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review - Inside
All-rubber outsole gives great traction and it is tough as nails. It wraps up around the midfoot to serve as RopePro – to protect the shoe from rope climbing friction.

The biggest difference between the regular Nano X and the Nano X PR is that the upper is made with different materials.

Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review - Lightweight upper
The Nano X PR’s upper doesn’t use flexweave – rather it’s something that feels lightweight and breathable.
Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review - Transparent upper materials
You’ll also notice the use of transparent materials in the upper.

Similarly the tongue is lightweight and different from the regular edition.
Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review - Collar Closeup
The Nano X PR has the same high collar and achilles pad of the regular. It’s comfy!

The Nano X PR also includes premium laces – they are round as opposed to the regular flat laces on the Nano X.

The Nano X PR has nice round laces with a pattern on them. They look good!

Overall, the Nano X PR is a good looking shoe.

Reebok Nano X PR Versus Reebok Nano X

How does the Reebok Nano X PR compare to the regular edition?

Reebok Nano X Cross Training Shoe
The Reebok Nano X is here – this is the 10th version of Reebok’s cross trainer shoe meant for functional fitness (like CrossFit.)
Reebok Nano X PR Versus Nano X Regular Review - Side by Side 1
How does the Nano X PR stack up to the Nano X regular? They are basically identical, except for the materials used in the upper. Both are good shoes.

We did a deep-dive review of the Nano X.

Reebok Nano X PR Versus Nano X Regular Review - Sole to Sole
Both use an all-rubber outsole with a decoupled heel – to minimize shock traveling from heel strikes to the rest of the foot and leg.

The Nano X PR is only available in this colorway – and I’m afraid it will get dirty and dingy quickly. It looks sharp out of the box though!

Reebok Nano X PR Versus Reebok Nano X Froning

The Froning Edition of the Nano X brings a nice look, and premium materials.

Reebok Nano X Froning - On Foot
Reebok Nano X Froning is a good looking shoe.

But, to be honest the improvements are cosmetic.

Reebok Nano X Froning Edition - Laces
The premium laces look nice and work well. The 3 string lacing system is a nice visual touch as well.

The midfoot strap is anchored with stretchy elastic – so it doesn’t offer a tangible improvement in security.

Rich Froning is notorious for competing with his shoes untied, so the strap would keep loose laces under control…

Reebok Nano X Froning versus Regular Nano X
The midfoot strap on the Froning doesn’t really do much. It is anchored with stretchy elastic – so it offers almost no improvement in security.

Because of the extra material, it is slightly heavier than the regular edition of the shoe as well.

But, it does look nice.

Reebok Nano X Froning Edition
The toebox is nice and wide on the Nano X.

Reebok Nano X PR Shoe Review – In Summary

The Reebok Nano X PR shoe claims to be lighter than the regular Nano X.

In actuality it’s not – it’s basically the same weight.

But, it looks sharp – and the Nano X is an excellent CrossFit or functional fitness WOD training shoe.

We recommend this shoe – but you can save $10 if you choose to go with the regular edition.
