You may have heard by now that Nike is releasing their new "Metcon TR" weightlifting, sprinting, jumping, rope-climbing, back-flipping, muscle-upping, don't call it CrossFit shoe in early 2015. If you haven't heard, well here it is:
Benefits of the new Nike Metcon TR include:
Never having to worry about destroying your shins while doing 30" box jumps because you will somehow clear the edge by 6" on every box jump.
Pushing a sled in your Nike Metcon TR's loaded with 180# will show off your newly forming calves quite well.
Your pull ups will look more like bar muscle-ups.
I'm really excited to see what comes of this. Superhuman powers aside, the list of CrossFit Games Athletes now sponsored by Nike is already sporting some serious names:
- Khan Porter
- Brandon Swan
- Kenny Leverich
- Nate Schrader
- Josh Bridges
- Jeff Evans
- Alexandra Lachance
When the Games roll around in 2015, is there a chance that it'll no longer be the "Reebok CrossFit Games" but rather the "Crossfit Games, brought to you by Reebok and Nike"?
Drama aside, I love the laces.
