Nike Free X Metcon Men's Training Shoe LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN. BUILT FOR NATURAL MOTION. The lightweight design of the Men's Nike Free X Metcon Training Shoe is built for intense workouts with an upper built for flexibility and comfort. Its dual-density midsole features cold fusion technology, while the laser-siped flex grooves in the outsole promote natural motion while you train.
TPU-faced mesh provides lightweight durability, stability and flexibility. Dual-density midsole with cold fusion technology provides stable comfort. Laser-siped flex grooves promote natural motion. Flywire technology integrates into the laces at the midfoot for a dynamic fit that helps lock your foot in place without restricting natural movement. Comfort fit bootie creates a soft and flexible fit while providing an easy on and off. Low-profile heel clip rolls up on the lateral and medial sides to help minimize drag during handstand pushups. Sidewall wrap-up design cradles the heel and the midfoot to help keep the foot over the footbed during side-to-side and diagonal movements. Rubber wraps up from the outsole through the midfoot to help resist abrasion during rope climbs.
Easily the best metcon I have tried. I am a fan of the free trainers... most notable the free train force flyknit, the the free trainer versatility and free trainer 5.0. I've tried some metcons, but never really like them. hard to get your foot in, too narrow in some part of the fit and too stiff in the sole. this shoe is like a free, but stable enough to actually lift in. Mid area of the sole is solid. Almost alarmingly stiff when you unbox them, but after a gym session, they have the right amount of flex. These have a nice little bit of arch support and could easily be wearable on the treadmill or even as a lifestyle shoe. They don't have that on the ground feeling of some of the more dedicated powerlifting/training shoes I've used, but again, these are much more wearable outside of the weight area. There is a tiny bit of heal slip in them and the materials aren't as breathable as I would like. I would also like better colorways. I got them in the olive, which is OK, but I'd like a bright red or bright blue. They fit true to size for me. Overall I am very pleased with them. They exceeded my expectations.
Several of my guy friends have these and love them. I love the look of them and would really like to try them out but I'm a womens 6.5. It'd be nice if they either made these for women too, or just made smaller sizes for a unisex shoe.
The darn shoes will not stay tied with a double knot. It's very frustrating to be in the middle of an intense workout and have to stop to tie your shoes. I've started triple knotting these bad boys. Please fix this Nike! I'd be really happy to receive a pair of laces in the mail.
I'm anxiously awaiting the drop of the newest Free Metcon. I'm hoping that there are some more standout colors available in the future. I've had several pairs of the Metcons throughout the years and these are by far the best, I love the flexibility of the sole. The shoe itself fits more like a sock which is very nice. I initially ordered my usual size but had to size up by 1/2 and they fit perfect now. I'm not sure if these are more durable than the other trainers with the Free bottom, time will tell. My previous Metcons were indestructible.
I purchased these as I needed a shoe that was more comfortable to run in, I was running 3-8 miles in the in previous Metcons which is not ideal given the solidity of the sole. Overall these have preformed well.
These Metcons are absolute perfection. They have the stability and grip for weightlifting and the cushion for short runs. I use them for Crossfit, Pump, and Combat. They feel amazing! I have three pairs and, somehow, I think I need more!
Bought these because I needed something with some stability. Were way too wide for my foot. I moved the laces to the lowest part possible, and they still were too loose. Felt comfortable, just didn't fit right. In the process of returning them.
