The Top 5 Reasons You Need The New Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2

Over the past few years, the Nike Metcon family has taken the cross-training world by storm. Starting from the beginning with the original Nike Metcon and now up to the Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2, this shoe line has given workout enthusiasts something to feel comfortable in.

The newest flyknit Metcon gives even more upgrades to the evolving shoe. This is where we come in as we break down the top five reasons you should pick up a pair of these versatile trainers.

  • Metcon Flyknit 2 2
    1. Flyknit Upper: The biggest thing that stands out on this trainer is of course the flyknit technology in the upper. This flyknit is incredibly flexible and breathable as one could expect, but also very durable — avoiding ripping or abrasion. Flyknit also makes it feel as if the upper is barely there and allows you the range of motion you need to knock out your lifting or cross-training.
  • Metcon Flyknit 2 3
    2. Firm Rubber Heel: When you are running, lifting, jumping, or anything in-between, you need a heel that will give you support. The firm rubber heel in the Metcon DSX Flyknit 2 keeps your foot in place and won’t slip no matter your exercise. This is extremely important when it comes to keeping your heel planted so you can explode up during squats, deadlifts, cleans, and more.
  • Metcon Flyknit 2 4
    3. Sticky Rubber Forefoot: When cutting, jumping, or planting your feet for lifts, nothing is more important than your grip. The sticky rubber that this shoe provides in the forefoot allows you to make sharp cuts on any surface without slipping, and stay stable while jumping or lifting. This feature is extremely essential for anyone looking to push themselves through a high intensity workout.
  • Metcon Flyknit 2 5
    4. Drop-In Midsole: Yes, not only is this shoe built for lifting and cross-training, but it can also handle running. This is where the drop-in midsole plays a huge role. This uniquely patterned part of the shoe provides cushioning for your footstrike while you are running, keeping your feet comfortable every step of the way.
  • Metcon Flyknit 2 6
    5. Stretch Fabric In Tongue And Collar: Looking for a trainer that is easy to take on and off and won’t bother your ankle? Then the DSX Fkyknit 2 is your shoe. The stretch fabric in this shoe connects the tongue and the top of the heel, allowing you to slide your foot in comfortably. This collar then forms to your ankle and the top of your foot as you work out, comfortably keeping you locked in with plenty of breathability.

Not only is this shoe stylish and comfortable, but it also checks off all of the boxes when it comes to durability, safety, and versatility.  If you are someone who is truly dedicated to working out and getting stronger, then this trainer is what you need. Pick up the Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2 now in men’s or women’s sizing.
