Women's Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2 Training Shoe LIGHTWEIGHT, ONE-TO-ONE COMFORT. The updated Women's Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2 Training Shoe features a breathable, lightweight upper with a proprioceptive collar for a one-to-one fit. Its drop-in midsole and sticky rubber outsole offer stability, comfort and excellent traction while you train.
Flyknit upper delivers durable, yet lightweight flexibility. Proprioceptive collar for a one-to-one fit. Molded flex grooves allow natural range of motion. Low-profile clip rolls up on the lateral and medial sides to help minimize drag during wall exercises and handstand pushups. Flywire technology integrates into the laces at the midfoot for a dynamic fit that helps lock your foot in place without restricting natural movement. Drop-in midsole is firmer in the heel for stability, yet softer and more flexible in the forefoot to provide comfort and cushioning for your footstrike when running. Firm rubber in the heel provides durability and stability for high-intensity intervals.
I have the original Metcon Flyknits and loved them but after a year they were due to be replaced so I gave these a go. I was hesitant based on the reviews but found that I love them, they're stable, comfortable, and have good traction. They are TTS with my other Metcon Flyknits allowing me plenty of room to spread out my toes without my heels slippping. For reference I wear an 8 in street shoes, an 8.5 in Metcons, and an 8.5- 9 in running shoes, I have super high arches and average width feet. I wear them only for leg day (includes low impact cardio) and with custom orthotics due to a history of plantar fasciitis, for anything high impact I wear running shoes.
Very pleased with this shoe, I have been wearing the Metcons 3&4 's for awhile but felt they didn't provide my feet with enough support especially when runs are put into WODS, these DSX Flyknits are so comfortable, I got an 8.5 which I my normal sneaker size, I am happy with them & plan to purchase more pairs.
