5 Standout Features On The New Nike Free x Metcon

Finding one training shoe capable of tackling all your workout needs can be difficult. The perfect shoe needs to have plenty of support in the heel area for weight lifting, a strong grip for making cuts and climbing ropes, enough flexibility for side-to-side movement and running, and — of course — enough breathability to keep your feet cool and sweat free.

With these features in mind, Nike went to work. The result? The ultra-versatile Nike Free x Metcon. This shoe, a mix between the stable and supportive Nike Metcon and the flexible and lightweight Nike Free, is a training shoe unlike any we’ve ever seen.

Now, athletes have a shoe they can take to the gym and use for any kind of workout. This means no more changing from your lifting shoe to your running shoe halfway through your workout — pretty convenient right?

Nike Free x Metcon Feated

Here are five standout features of the new Nike Free x Metcon:

1. Laser-siped flex grooves in the outsole

Large grooves have been cut into the outsole from the midfoot to the front of the shoe to add flexibility and allow for more natural movement. Nike Free fans, you’ll also find these grooves in the outsoles of most of your favorite models.

2. Comfort-fit bootie

Flexibility and comfort are key throughout the design of this unique shoe. That’s why a comfort-fit bootie was created to allow for easy on and off, a very flexible fit and feel, and plenty of support.

3. Midfoot stability

An issue many people have with training shoes is the ability to make side-to-side movements and cuts. With this newly designed sidewall feature, your heel is cradled in the back of the shoe, allowing your foot to stay better aligned over the footbed when you’re making your cuts.

4. Open mesh upper

Breathability is one of the biggest features athletes look for in their workout shoes, and the Free x Metcon gives you plenty of it. This durable mesh material is opened up, allowing for plenty of airflow while continuing to give you the stability and flexibility you want.

5. Dual-density midsole with cold fusion technology

Safety and the comfort of your foot are obviously number one when it comes to training, and this is where the dual-density midsole comes into play. Cold fusion technology essentially is soft foam placed within a firmer carrier to provide you with underfoot cushioning with plenty of stability underneath.

 


The Nike Free x Metcon is a much different training shoe than we’ve ever seen before, and within the new design is a lot of versatility and comfort specifically built to help take you to the next level. Check out the Free x Metcon now at eastbay.com.
