New for 2016, the Nike Metcon 2 updates one of the most popular cross-training shoes on the planet with a new range of color options and features. From the low-profile TPU heel clip to the grooved, max-traction forefoot, Metcons are built to provide stability on heavy lifts, flexibility on sprints and climbs, and optimal comfort for distance runs and day-to-day abuse.
As with the original Metcon, attention to detail sets the Metcon 2 apart from other athletic footwear. An abrasion-resistant film around the midfoot is critical to reducing heat and friction during a high octane training regimen, and Nike’s lightweight Flywire cables help maintain a strong support structure without the bulkiness of some other leading cross-trainers. Metcons also deliver dependable traction that performs on the gym floor, the track, and training grounds far off the beaten path.
