Comments about Mens Nike MetCon 1 Cross Training Shoe:

There are Pros and Cons with this shoe.

I will say that regardless of the cons, I will be purchasing another pair in the near future.

I never felt like i could run or sprint properly in Nanos but it the Metcon my mid-fore foot strike is back. I feel very comfortable in longer running WODs as well as short sprint repeats. For that alone, this shoe has been welcome.

They also work well with Box Jumps and Rope climbs (2 pulls to get the the 15' mark on repeats during 31 Heroes). So overall, this puts the shoe in a very solid spot.

So, why the 3 rating. The initial run of the shoes (purchased in Jan) have significant durability challenges. The sole has separated from the mid sole requiring repair from ShoeGoo (which worked well). The toes are also starting to peel back.

The shoe is also get some odd wear in the exterior toe box. The wear has not torn thru but it looks like it could at any moment.

Bottom line, Nike has done a decent job following into a market segment. Probably built a shoe with its standard QC levels. Maybe not quite as rigorous as needed in this category. Toe Box as with all Nike is tight..the reason I do not wear their running shoes.

At this point, for me better than the alternative and hoping for QC improvements.

Recommend but good luck finding

Comments about Mens Nike MetCon 1 Cross Training Shoe:

Ok, I am a VIP member but purchased these from another vendor due to them being so hard to locate. Nike did a good job by marketing these to compared to Reebok Nano 4's, but a terrible I repeat terrible job of having enough supply. They decided to produce way too many colors versus concentrating on a few. Speaking of colors, I wish they kept them basic instead of making them look like clown shoes. I purchased the white, black and violet (bright purple) but that was all I could find in my size 10.

I recommend them because they support your arches, especially if you have high
arches like myself. I wear neutral plus running shoes (Nike Vomero's). I would not recommend running in these Metcons. Strictly gym, lifting and Crossfit workouts. I wore Reebok Nano 4, which I loved until the fourth month. I began to develop plantar fasciitis, which I never had in my life. I traced the problem to the Nanos because they don't have any arch support. My only complaints which I have read in other reviews is that there is heel slippage (loose in the heel area) and a little stiff.

I wonder how the Nano 5's feel, which came out 2 weeks after I bought these. I know I will wear a different insole if purchase the Nanos because they come with a thin insole.

      Comments about Mens Nike MetCon 1 Cross Training Shoe:

      I wear Reebok Nanos in every iteration - in size 11. That IS my size. Nike running shoes, though, I have in size 11.5...and they fit perfectly. My recommendation - DON'T order these a half size up. I have the Metcon in an 11.5 and they feel like clown shoes; the same shoe in an 11, though, and it's perfect.
      Stable is the best word to describe this shoe. They're heavier than the Nano by a (comparative) large amount...but you won't be using these for long runs so the extra weight shouldn't ever be an issue. It's strange to me that they make me feel more confident in my lifts - but the extra stability around the ankles have me reaching for them when I squat or deadlift every time. Again, I don't dislike the Nanos I have at all - I just prefer the Nikes that much more.
      Great shoe. Great performance. If Nike continues to improve on this shoe, my Reeboks will continue gathering dust in my closet for sure.

      Comments about Mens Nike MetCon 1 Cross Training Shoe:

      Love these shoes overall. I have had the Nano 4.0, Which sit in my closet and will never wear again. I've had the Inov8 Flite-235, which is a great shoe, just no cushioning. This shoe is a great fit for an overall training shoe. Has enough cushioning for jumping, impact movements and is still stable enough for lifting. the only and I mean only complaint i have with the shoe is this. The insole is very thick and causes the flex and lateral stability of the shoe to suffer slightly. I hope in the next generation they thin out the insole and make it more flexible and this show would be the ultimate shoe. I am 6'5 and 295, I need cushion. These Metcons are exactly what the Dr. ordered in that Department.

        Comments about Mens Nike MetCon 1 Cross Training Shoe:

        AWSOME!! Very comfortable and supportive. I like everything about them, just took forever to get. I preordered them and dates kept getting pushed back. Frustrating part was people were selling them before I got mine even though I preordered.
