Nano pumps?


Anyone try these out? Cant decide if over the top gimmick or really, really cool. Leaning toward former but open to latter.

Re: Nano pumps?

I haven't tried them. I have two pairs of shoes for workouts: Merrill Barefoot True Glove and Nano 2.0.

The Merrills are an older model that aren't available anymore. I love them and wear them for everything (workouts, fiddle-farting around on the weekend, lake swimming, hiking, etc.).

The Nano 2.0 have a toe box that is a little too big to be a perfect fit for me. I can imagine that a pump feature might help snug up the toe box, but I don't know. Pump shoes have always seemed gimmicky to me too. I haven't found a shoe yet that I like as much as the Merrills.

I've been thinking along the same lines. I'm showing my age but didn't dig the Reebok pumps back in the day.... (WSF) The Nano version looks a lot better than the Nano 5.0. Especially, the all black!! I'd love to try them out.
I tried the 5.0s but didn't like them as much as the 2.0 and 3.0s though. The verdict is still out in my book.

Re: Nano pumps?

I have the normal 5.0, don't know how the pump would make them better (and I'm a fan of the pump).

Re: Nano pumps?

I could be wrong, but didn't the Pump almost put Reebok under in the 90's? I was wearing Nikes and Brooks back then but I remember having pair of Hexalyte running shoes that were pretty comfortable.
