Nano 2.0 vs. NB MT20

I was looking for the info on both NB and Reebok website, failed to find. I am interested in the differences in the soles, height of the sole, and heel to toe drop. I anyone has this info or if there is a thread already, please lead me in the right direction.

Re: Nano 2.0 vs. NB MT20

Ah, that makes sense, thanks. Anyone know what height are the Nano 2.0s? Reason being I have 2 pairs of MT20s that I find the most comfortable shoe I've had in the last 5 year. I do like the look of the Nano 2.0, interested if to know if they have the same low profile as the MT20.

The heel height? Or drop?

I'm pretty sure both the MT10 and MT20 have a 4mm heel to toe drop and the MT00 is a zero drop.

NB does not use any logical nomenclature in numbering their shoes- sometimes its a series and sometimes it actually refers to something specific (like the drop in the MT00/ MR00)

EDIT: Most standard running shoes have a 12mm drop- so a 20mm drop would feel like standing in high heels!

Re: Nano 2.0 vs. NB MT20

I was interested in Heel height. l like the closeness to the ground and the heel to toe drop the MT20s have. Wanted to see a comparision to the Nano 2.0 heel height and heel to toe drop.

Wow I was way off on that. That is what I thought the whole time on the drop now that I think of I guess 20mm would be a little much. Thank for the education!

Re: Nano 2.0 vs. NB MT20

I'm pretty sure the heel height for the NB MT20 and MT10 are both 15mm down to 11mm for the 4mm drop. Material is slightly different, which is where you save in weight.

It looks like the Nano is 9mm to 5mm for the same 4mm drop. Not sure about the Nano 2.0, but shoe description says "The same low profile platform balances cushioning and low-to-ground feel".

EDIT - Amazon has the heel/toe as 9mm/5mm for the Nano 2.0.

Re: Nano 2.0 vs. NB MT20

I tried the Nano 2.0 at the Reebok HQ Store this morning.

They are very comfortable but there doesn't seem to be much drop (compared to MT20. The sales associates working at the store didn't happen to know the specifics either.

I would have purchased a pair because I think they are much improved over the first nano, but they were out stock for my size.

Sorry it doesn't clarify but thought I would share my insight.

The new Nano has the same (or very similar) sole as the original tied to with a more Realflex type upper (more plush) from what I was told by the Reebok guys at the regionals.
