That’s what we’ve evaluated in our hands-on review. Read on to find out the details… Here’s some of the launch styles that are available now: Let’s take a look. Reebok Nano X Shoe Review – On Our YouTube Channel We’ve got two hands-on video overviews of this shoe on our YouTube channel: And this video compares it directly (and in-depth) to the Reebok Nano 9. Reebok Nano X Shoe Review – What’s New and Improved? Let’s start by calling out the differences with this shoe as compared to the Reebok Nano 9 (last year’s official CrossFit training shoe.) The visible change is the upper (the part that covers your foot.) It’s still “Flexweave” which is Reebok’s woven textile that combines a super-tough outer layer with a super comfortable inner layer. The difference in the new shoe is that it looks a lot better – more sophisticated. How so? Here’s an example. [Read more …]
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 [Read more …]
It’s that time again – Reebok is launching new colorways of the Reebok Nano 9 for March 1st, 2020. Here’s White / Matte Gold / Pure Grey 2 for Women (Product code FV6073) And here’s White / Matte Gold / Pure Grey 2 for Men (Product code: FV6074) 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 [Read more …]
Reebok surprised us all by dropping a new flavor of the Reebok Nano 9 – it has a brand-new woven jacquard upper. … and it looks great! This is “Cold Grey 4 / Cold Grey 7 / Toxic Yellow” (Product code: FU9372). Some stores are calling this the Reebok Nano 9 Beast – and you can probably guess why – these are two dark and foreboding color patterns. But, the official names are “BLACK / TRUE GREY 8 / TOXIC YELLOW” and the slightly lighter “COLD GREY 4 / COLD GREY 7 / TOXIC YELLOW”. Here’s the other option. Where can you get these? Your best bet is right from the source, Reebok.com: What’s a “Jacquard” upper? That refers to a special weaving process by which the pattern is woven into the material. Here’s an up-close look. As you can see, this is a much more refined and sophisticated look as compared to the normal FlexWeave upper on the Reebok Nano 9. Will this new upper be as durable? We don’t know for sure yet, but I can tell you [Read more …]
Reebok has launched two new colorways of their potent training shoe – the Reebok Nano 9. The new colorways are BLACK / FLUID BLUE / LEMON GLOW for women … and BLACK / WHITE / VIVID ORANGE for men. What’s special about the Reebok Nano 9? For starters, it’s the only shoe that can wear the CrossFit name. You can see it’s right on the heel. This is the 9th iteration of the Nano – and that means they have come pretty close to perfecting this design. It has a relatively low-profile 4mm heel to toe drop. That means your heel is about 4 mm higher than your toes. This means it is a very versatile shoe- and you can use it for running, jumping, lifting, climbing, and more. (In other words, it’s perfect for the CrossFit WOD.) The upper is made from Reebok’s FlexWeave material – it’s tough but breathable because it is woven into a figure 8 pattern (there’s a breathable mesh underneath.) CrossFit athletes need to be able to climb ropes – and the Reebok Nano 9 [Read more …]
Nike has released a new colorway of the Nike React Metcon Cross Trainer for Men : Seaweed/Green Spark/Vintage Green. Ok, it’s technically style: BQ6044-323. But, no matter what you call it, we think it looks pretty slick. What’s the big benefit of the Nike React Metcon shoe? It’s right in the name – REACT. As in React foam cushioning – you know – Nike’s groundbreaking energy return foam cushioning system. That’s right – every footstep gives you energy back with React foam. But you’ll notice this is a Cross Trainer shoe. Unlike the Nike React running shoes there’s a lot less React foam. That’s because React foam is springy and bouncing – but it is not very tough. And Cross Trainers for the CrossFit WOD, Functional Fitness, and HIIT training need to be built like a tank. So in this shoe the React foam is in the drop-in midsole – which you can’t see – because it is inside the shoe. The outsole (the part that touches the ground, basically) is made from tough rubber – for maximum traction and [Read more …]
