I don't know if I'm an avid athlete, but I am not a globogym rat either. Anyway, first time I wore the shoe, I PR'd my double unders. This was just what I was looking for in this Metcon edition. I wanted a Metcon with some more toe flex that I was able to use during box jumps, double unders and running, along with some weightlifting mixed in, but not strictly barbell work. This fit the bill. Definitely would not use for Grace, or Isabel, but would absolutely use for Murph or Helen. I really like the fit of the shoe, fit me true to size, 12 in Metcon 2 and Metcon 3, 12 in DSX. If you're looking for something with a similar comfort feel to the Nano 6.0, I think that this works. I really like it and look forward to some more workouts in it!

Great training show
Great training shoe. The cushioned midsole is a nice upgrade from the regular metcon 3's, especially on days I choose to run. They are stable and flat enough that you can lift in them also. This is a great shoe to wear if you are on your feet all day at work too, its light weight and comfortable and has good arch support from the insole nike uses on the metcon line. This is my new favorite shoe.

Great for HIIT
Great shoe. I have used these for about 6 month at OrangeTheory Fitness doing HIIT workouts and they are amazing. The added cushion as compared to the regular Metcon is great for our time on the Treadmills. This shoe took my workouts to the next level. I have already pre-ordered the DSX Flyknit 2 from RRS.
Better for running than the metcon3, but not sure worth the$
The shoe does the job. Love the metcon 3s, this shoe pretty much is the same thing except less tough upper so you don't want to use on rope climbs, but a little more flexible and breathable while makes running and box jumps a little more enjoyable. I don't know if they are so much better than the metcon 3s that they need to be this much more in price. Don't be fooled into thinking this can supplant a running shoe, it cannot.
These are a great in between shoe while they are not as grounded as a Nano they are far superior on a run. I use a Oly shoe for lifts and so this shoe was just what I was looking for. I was not impressed with these on rope climbs due to my climbing style the tops seemed slick and didn't aid in the climb but held up fine
My new favorite shoe.
Great training shoe. This is my new favorite metcon model the added cushion makes it great for workouts that have running in it. Also great for wearing around all day. I wear these to work everyday also.
Would not buy again or recommend
The shoes were great to start. Sadly, after about 2 shifts wearing the shoes they started to make an audible noise with every step. I am looking into returning the shoes now
Great Gym Shoe, would buy gain for sure!
Great gym shoe! perfect cushioning/support for gym workouts, able to get a solid stability for squats and stability exercises. For me the shoe fit more true to size.
