Re: Reebok Realflex Nano

It's a cool looking shoe and it sounds pretty sweet, but I can't pay $130 for a "minimalist" shoe. I'm sure it has to do with the easy bake technology, but still. That's too much for a pair of shoes. I am excited that vibram, merrel, etc. are going to be coming out with more "Crossfit" shoes if that is actually true. I'll be excited to see what they have to offer.

At the end... the $80 MX20 is the superior shoe. At $50 less no doubt.

I know that I love mine and am not planning to get the reeboks. I may try out their oly shoes tho.

Re: Reebok Realflex Nano

eek, $130 aint no joke. I'm interested to see what the new Inov-8 CF shoe is like. I really just like the idea of having a lightweight shoe with some rope climbing protection built in. Nothing pains me more than have to tear up a pair of nice soft-soled shoes because I had to catch myself from sliding off a rope.

I have the Road-X 155 and the toe box is much wider than the 195/230. Hopefully signs of things to come.

Which shoes have you torn up? I wear my Bikilas when rope climbing and was expecting them to get torn up but they seem to handle it without even a mark on them.
