I have been looking around the gym and noticing that some of us still don’t have what they call Crossfit shoes. Before I begin my little rant on why these shoes help during workouts I want you to know I’m not trying to sell you anything because I know how expensive they are. There are two different brand of main Crossfit shoes there are the Nike Metcons or the Reebok Nanos. I can’t say which one I personally like more. The reason to have them over just any other shoe is because one they are a little more durable than just regular shoes, they have the rope climb grip on the bottom of the shoe which is going to be very useful and third they look awesome! Now between the Metcons and the Nanos I would have to say the Metcons are more for running workouts they are lighter and not as wide as the Nanos. But the Nanos have more of a stable heel like lifting shoes which is nice for workout that require a lot of squatting or Olympic lifting. But both shoes will do just fine for all workouts. So if you haven’t tried a pair yet you need to.
