Nike Metcon 1 for Crossfit

the-nike-metcon-1

And finally Nike dropped their first training shoe fit for Crossfit. It took a while before they jumped on the Bullet Train called Crossfit. And if you’re gonna be late, why not be late in style. And damn did the brothers and sisters at Nike get that.

As of yesterday the Nike Metcon 1 is available at Nike.com
Well was available. All models and sizes were sold out within 24 hours. Talk about craving a cool and performance like alternative for working up a sweat in style. Well like Josh said: It’s just my/our gear.. too.

Nike won’t call Metcon 1 a Crossfit shoe due trademark rights and stuff, but looking at the pro Crossfit athletes (Josh Bridges, Kenneth Leverich, Alexandra LeChance and team CrossFit Invictus) they have contracted, it’s “Game On” on the Crossfit training gear market.

Metcon is a word which is often used in Crossfit. It stands for Metabolic Conditioning. These workouts, or MetCons for short, are fast paced, high intensity workouts completed in a short period of time that will challenge your cardiovascular capacity, put your metabolism into overdrive and rapidly burn fat. We have some athletes in our minds doing their favorite sport, Football (US), Football (UK), rugby, boxing, kick boxing, golf, etc., they all added Crossfit to their training regime and never looked back.
