I continue to find myself wanting to pit the 2 shoes against each other. I don't do rope climbs, or t2b, or things of that nature so I have no doubt the Met Cons will hold up over time.

I don't even care. To be fair, I also love the Lauren Fisher colorway.

I'm with you, for somewhat different reasons. I felt the toebox was too cramped. I also liked them for lifting, but if I wore them outside the gym or even inside the gym for a decent amount of time, they became really uncomfortable. Bought a pair of Nano 4s for almost half the price of the Metcons. My feet are much happier.

I think the Nano 4's are maybe the best all around shoe made so far for this stuff.
