The Fisher color should have been all sizes, that color way is SWEEEET!

PS, here's the nano 5 next to my met cons. Dopeness.

Re: Nike Metcon

Get it together Nike. Delayed the women's shoe by a week at the last second now.

Re: Nike Metcon

Serious question: Are the Metcons THAT great or is everyone feeding off hype...?
I ask because I am torn between ordering the Nike or the Nano 5.0. I've been through Vibram, Merrell, Reebok and INOV during my CF workouts. All have served their purpose, and I don't believe that one shoe can be as awesome as depicted. Most had high praise for the Nano 4.0, but I hated them with a passion! I'm not a huge Nike fan, so I don't want to pay for a shoe that is not going to work for me; BTW, I have a semi-wide foot which is another reason I don't steer towards Nike.
Be gentle....

Michael

Re: Nike Metcon

Shots fired officially. Looks like Nike will have a special color out for the Games next week. I like the reference to the banned Jordan 1's

Michael, if you don't want them, don't get them, the Nano 5 looks pretty solid as well.

Re: Nike Metcon

First off, that Games' Met Con. Sick. Wicked. Unreal. Want so bad.

Michael, I own both and while I have not been able to give the Nano a proper test yet (only 1 real workout in it, it's in my log from 7/9/2015). I can tell you that so far I like the Nike's a lot. I do much more barbell training than most crossfitters do. I don't do stuff like wall balls, double unders, toes to bar and stuff like that. I am more of a CFFootball kind of guy in a way.

The Nano's 5's almost feel like a step backwards in some ways from where the Nano has been since the v1. I LOVED the v4, so maybe it's got something to do with that.

i am drooling on my screen, i want them so bad but i already have the other red coming for much cheaper.

as for the hype, i have been using nothing but my Metcons since i got them and honestly, for me at least, the Nano's aren't even close. even with heavy barbell work, i don't feel the need to run and get my lifting shoes.

last week i did a LONG workout that pretty much had everything in it and the shoe was AWESOME.
