Nike's New Obstacle Course Race shoe: Nike Metcon X SFB

September 26, 2019

If your idea of a good time is sludging up and down muddy trails, scaling 20 foot obstacles, crawling underneath barbed wire, and jumping through fire then you know how important it is to have a pair of shoes that can handle the abuse and range of challenges in an obstacle course race.

Whether you're running a Tough Mudder or a Spartan Race you need something that's waterproof, won't slip off, and can get traction in any condition. Seems like a lot to ask, but Nike may have just answered your OCR prayers with their new Metcon X SFB. By blending the Metcon and the Special Forces Boot (SFB), Nike has created an innovative shoe that can handle any obstacle, challenge, or environment.

The Metcon X SFB addresses the 3 biggest challenges facing athletes running an OCR.

Fit

The glove like fit of the Metcon X SFB keeps your feet where they need to be all race long. A speed-lacing system lets you quickly adjust and adapt the fit during a race without ever losing your pace.

Traction

The accumulation of mud is one of the main problems during an OCR that can slow you down, but now you can easily kick free mud as you move with the anti-clogging rubber and unique spacing of the outsole lugs.

Drainage

Besides having a great time the only other thing guaranteed during an OCR is that you will get wet. A sopping wet shoe will weigh you down so proper drainage is essential. The lightweight mesh upper and drain ports in the outsole work together like a sieve so you'll push out water with every step.

Before you sign up for your next OCR be sure to get your pair of the Nike Metcon X SFB.
