With interest in cross-training at an all-time high, Nike looks to raise the bar with an entire footwear and apparel line dedicated to intense training regimes.
The new Nike Metcon 1 marks a bold entry for the global sportswear brand, with a signature trainer deigned to be worn seamlessly during dynamic workouts, explosive runs and any other exercises you decide to challenge your body to. We were lucky enough to get our hands on a pair; continue reading for our in-depth review.
Nike’s Metcon 1 features a minimal heel-toe drop ideal for both weight-room lifts and explosive sprints. The versatile trainer also incorporates Nike’s lightweight Flywire cable technology, providing for a generous amount of structural support. A perforated upper and roomy toe box ensures optimal breathability during worksouts, while outer midsole features a unique textured grip, allowing for increased traction when climbing ropes. Small details like this help cement Nike Training as a force to reckon with in cross-training performance gear.
Nike takes a bold step and delivers an impressive all-in-one training shoe. From its deliberately designed low profile to its flexible Flex groove sole, the shoe is attractive, comfortable, and best of all versatile.
