Although Reebok has long been the sneaker brand of choice in the CrossFit industry, the Nike Metcon 2 may pose a challenge to its current dominance. With the stability and comfort required for high-intensity exercise, the latest Nike kicks are perfect for avid CrossFit athletes.
The Nike Metcon 2 is an updated version of the Metcon 1 that premiered in 2015. Unlike the original, the new sneakers boast a number of additional features that make them ideal for CrossFit activities. The base of the shoes is flat, which allows for explosive lifts, while the zero-drag heels facilitate hand-stand pushups. The soles are also made with an abrasion-resistant film that protects against high-heat friction during particularly intense workouts. To keep the wearer comfortable, the inside of the shoe is made with dual-density foam that provides cushioning and support.
