Jayme,

I felt that the 4.0s were too rigid....I liked the flexibility in my 3.0s alot bette especially during box jumps and DUs.

It may just be my personal preference but I feel that the 3.0s hada much more functional design.

Interesting... I got into the game pretty late and have only tried the 4.0s. I wonder if the switch from the heavy cage to kevlar would bring back the flexibility of the 3.0s or even the 2.0s. I do like how it looks, though...

Re: Nano 5.0

Really love the 5.0's. Have two pairs.. but hate and I mean hate the black or they say black.. its a brown or weird dark green. But the fit and wearing them in met cons and oly.. way better than the previous. I have the original form fits, plenty of 2's, many 3's and some 4's.. but the 5's are the best in my mind. Picking up the Nike met cons they felt heavy to the touch.. but a lot of people like them. Can't stand the look of themů all Nike clothes are just a neon crash waiting to happen. But I am a fashion person.. with too many shoes and outfits.. gotta get rid of some. We are going to have a crossfit swap meet soon.

I just got the "Black" 5's. They're by far the best shoe I've used, I ran my 3.0s in the to ground and decided to pick them up and I've zero regrets so far. They're just as stable, but much lighter and I can actually run in the things without my legs cramping like in the 3's.

Re: Nano 5.0

Still having problems adopting to my 5.0's. Just seem to sit up too high for me after years of being closer to the ground thanks to 1.0's-4.0's and Met Cons.

Re: Nano 5.0

Like I say, not my favorite. This was after one night in the gym, not even doing much really because I wore my lifters for the squats and bench. Yes, I was wearing socks.

Re: Nano 5.0

They've already reduced the price on them by $20

Sounds like they aren't selling. Either because feedback has been bad or because the Metcon is eating away at their share. Both, probably.

I have a LOT of athletic shoes, close to 50 pairs thanks to my old job (they were gifts at my old job). Never had I had a pair cut into the back of BOTH feet. Never.
