Just started Crossfit a little over a month ago and after struggling with squats for two WOD's it as brought to my attention that it was most likely my shoes and that my weight was being pushed to the balls of my feet instead of my heals where it should be, it made total sense. It was also pointed out to me that my knee's were rolling in no matter how hard I tried. So I went to the local running store and was fitted for some cross training shoes (I prefer to try on new shoes in person and then once I know I like them, then purchase future pairs on Amazon). I liked these ones the best because they were so flexible and it barely felt like I was wearing anything, compared to the other shoes I tried on. I have a weird thing about shoes making my feet feel "claustrophobic" (I know Im a bit crazy lol) but these didn't do that and I didn't overly feel the shoe on any point of my foot. I've had these for about a month now and we do WOD's 3x a week and these shoes have made things a lot easier. They have helped my form as well and I feel it now in all the right places. Plus they're a cute purple so that helps too.
I really like these shoes a lot! These are a little more stable than the Nano 2.0, which I had before these. Therefore they are better suitable for lifting. They fit very well and I really love, love, love the colour!!
My shoes showed up a day earlier than I expected!! The fit was perfect, ordered the same size I would with any other Reebok shoe. Wore for the first time yesterday and I could tell the difference with my stance and form. I've taught weight lifting classes for years and just started Crossfit a few months back. My coach recommended that I get "flat" bottom shoes because I was complaining about my balance in low squatting moves. These are AWESOME, I'm always telling my class members to sit into their heels and drive through the leg. I could totally tell the difference of the set of my heel and weight.
LOVE these Nanos. I just finished Filthy 50 and I felt like I was walking on air. The support is incredible and they really help soften the impact you feel with box jumps. Highly recommend for Crossfit. They run about a half size too small, but ultimately you'd probably be okay with your regular size if you like a tight fit, I however like some breathing room. Also, I saw someone complain about the width in the toe box, but I watched a review on YouTube and that was done purposefully for squatting purposes etc. I suggest looking into their reasoning before returning them.
I normally wear shoe size 6 or 6.5. I ordered size 6 from a different website (found this shoe much cheaper elsewhere, and also size 6 was not available on Amazon in the color I chose **pink**). I'm surprised by all the comments stating that the shoe was too small for them! Maybe I just like a tighter-fitting shoe than most, I could have easily worn a 6 or 6.5. Anyways, I like this shoe for Crossfit because I feel it grips the floor better than other shoes. I like the flat bottom (seen as a flaw to some) because it keeps me more stable during heavy lifts. I like that the toe is constructed well- in the past I have lost many shoes because the rubber on the front ends up ripping because of some of the movements like burpees. This isn't the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn (in fact, I think Nike Pegasus is probably the best shoe I've found as far as comfort), but I think it's perfect for what it's designed for- the Crossfit workout. No complaints- I think it's a nice upgrade from the 2.0, and a step under the 4.0. Can't really go wrong!
