As a consistent follower of CrossFit, I never spare my chances to have the shoe that can give me desired massive strength and improved feel in my feet. Certainly, you will love what these varied workout methods offer, and you will be overwhelmed with the role of CrossFit shoes. All on a sudden, I got to know a little about Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0, and I made my purchase. A few days after the purchase, I started feeling out of sorts thinking that this is not working out. I waited for some weeks to see what comes next. Trust me; I could not believe my own judgment after a few weeks.
Here, I will explain what the shoe made me feel about it all the way through my CrossFit workouts which involved running, rope climbing, weightlifting, and rowing.
Fit and comfort:
The wide toe-box makes it more-or-less roomy. Everyone does not have to buy the same shoe because separate models are available for men and ladies. These shoes are cut and designed slightly differently so that they fit nicely to different foot sizes and shapes. Their welded seams ensure that no internal stitching will be to cause users feel chafing. The anti-friction lining can protect feet from rubbing and hot-spots. This theoretically means that women can wear the shoes with or without their socks. This is not a 0mm heel-to-toe drop shoe. So, ladies can get used to wearing them without any discomfort.
Reebok, the widely known manufacturer to bring versatility in its shoes, has once again made it have an awful lot to stay on top. The soles included in the body of the shoe have struck a superior balance between adequate stability for squats and lifts and enhanced cushioning for rigorous exercises and running.
A bird’s eye view of the Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0 features:
- Rope guards included to protect the midsole from damage in the face of climbs
- Toe “cage” included to protect both the sole of toe and the upper
- Crush-resistant and dense soles for unflinching stability
- Grippy soles included for gym works and outside runs
- Only a 4mm heel-to-toe drop chance to ensure that users stay on a natural position while having fine cushioning for high-impact workouts
- 360° PU Cast to ensure engineered support, lightweight feel, durability and seamless performance
- ETC anti-friction lining for little or no abrasions
- Breathable air mesh built of heat
- Dual Density included to offer impact protection and rearfoot stability
- A Die Cut Ortholite sockliner
- RCF Natural last to allow full foot dispersion to stabilize feet with Lateral/Medial Rope Guard
- The outsole splay zone is designed to be able to work on multiple directions
Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0 review in the eye of most users:
The shoe is marked with its versatility in constructions. The majority of Nano 3.0 users seem to appreciate the much needed protection, flexibility, heel stabilization and cushioning. While most users do not seem to talk much about the durability, they at least stated that their expectation is met to date. Some tend to call it a truly lightweight shoe.
The biggest complaint against it is its unsuitability for long-running efforts. Another con the shoe suffers is its price which is around $120, an amount that many users recommend to reduce. Despite the seemingly higher price tag, the shoe is still affordable for people who think about their fitness quite seriously. Also, the manufacturer has never declared it to be a long-running shoe.
Finally, I would say this is a good contender in the CrossFit world that always requires high level of specialization and a vast host of technological wizardry. Roughly speaking, this shoe hits that line well.
