Nike Free X Metcon: Nike's Newest Trainer

March 26, 2018

Nike's brand new Free X Metcon blends two of their most popular technologies to create a durable and flexible training shoe designed to meet the demands of your toughest workouts. By fusing Free technology with the features of the top selling Metcon line, the Free X Metcon gives you the best of both worlds.

So whats different between the Nike Metcon and the Free X Metcon? For starters, the shoe is a lot more flexible. The sole is constructed with flex groves in the forefoot allowing your feet and toes to have a more natural movement as you workout. The sole also features a tri-star design located on both the forefoot and heel with varying levels of density: added foam cushioning for running and firmer-density foam for weightlifting.

The other noticeable difference is the soft neoprene sock collar - you'll get a super comfy feel which makes for happy feet and easy all day wear. The mesh upper is more breathable than the Metcon and will keep your feet cool as the reps pile up. The Free X Metcon also boasts rubber wrapping along the sides for added durability for movements like rope climbs, burpees and handstand pushups.
