What’s the difference? That’s what we’re going to cover in this review.

Here’s some of the styles that are available now:

Nano X1 Men's Training Shoes (Black/True Grey 8/Pewter) This is the "I'll Call You Back" edition - and it is available now. It's sporting a subtle and dark color theme with a knit upper.
Nano X1 Grit Men's Training Shoes (Grey / Core Black / Orange Flare) Here's the Grit upper - it's more akin to the Flexweave upper that was on the Nano X. This will be tougher than the knit upper.

Let’s compare and contrast these two different options.

Nano X1 Sizing

Looking for sizing advice? The Nano X1 runs true to size, with a nice, wide toebox that is nearly unchanged from the Nano X.

Visually there’s a small difference because the outsole is wider in the X. I explain in-depth in this video:

There I recommend you order the same size as your Nano X – or whatever your normal shoe size is.

Reebok Nano X1 Grit Versus Knit - Outsole
There’s no differences in the outsole between the Grit and Knit options. The only difference is truly the upper (The part that covers your foot.)

Here’s a closeup of the Knit upper. It’s soft, it’s knit, and it is relatively tough. I would not call it sock-like though – it is not very stretchy.

The Grit upper is tougher, and perhaps best of all there is no weight penalty.

Reebok Nano X1 Grit Versus Knit – In Summary

That’s our review of the differences in the two uppers of the Reebok Nano X1 Training Shoe from Reebok.

Want something that’s really tough and similar to last year’s Flexweave upper? The Grit option is your choice.

It is tough and there’s no weight penalty over the other upper.

The knit upper is soft and comfortable – but it’s not sock-like or super stretchy.

(But it’s likely tougher than those sort of shoes.)
