Teehee. Not exactly what I meant. Back when Jordan dominated the NBA no one wore his personal shoe either and I don't blame them.

What is a bit bizarre is that they come out with a shoe for him after he hangs it up. I would not be surprised if you see him one more time at the Games.

Plus naming your shoe after a bible passage.......not my cup of tea.

I would guess that's is why they named it after Rich and not you! JK.
Seriously, what would you expect from him. It is after all his shoe. They don't look bad to me. I wonder if they will carry a higher price tag? If so I wouldn't buy them.

Also, you'd think they'd come out with them prior to the Open so people can get a few WODs in them beforehand. The Metcons come out Sunday I believe, seems like they're dropping the ball all over the place.

Now if the Metcons would just come out in red and black...
I'm a complete gear wh0re, especially when it comes to shoes, but I may seriously boycott this Bible-thumping tactic.

I'm excited to get both and do a comparison. I took a look at some screenshots for the video Reebok did of Rich during a workout with the new shoes. It looks like the rope guard and heel is made of kevlar. I really like the look of them, but I can understand others wouldn't.

How is this a "Bible-Thumping" tactic?

the shoe is named after a bible verse? i think it actually has the verse on it but that could be just a rumor.

The tattoo Rich has on his side is Galatians 6:14 - "But far be from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord **********, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."

I'm not sure how I feel about using a biblical reference to name a pro model shoe. On one hand, as a Christian I respect Rich for being vocal and genuine about his faith, but on the other hand, I'm not a big fan of Reebok (and perhaps Rich. Not sure how much input he has in naming and stuff like that) using his faith to market a product.

Regardless, I'm going with the Metcon once it's out.

I look forward to the comparisons between the froning shoe and the metcon. I actually like what I see from the froning shoe, from first look it appears different enough from the previous Nanos to be its own unique shoe
