Whatever your "why" is for working out, the Metcon 9 makes it all worth it. We improved on the 8 with a larger Hyperlift plate and added rubber rope wrap. Intended for lifters, trainers and go-getters, some of the greatest athletes in the world swear by it, and it's still the gold standard that delivers day after day.

Oof where to start. First they are not a good looking shoe (I was hoping the feel and functionality would help overlook this and just never looking down). Second, this thing feels like a boot. If you like Metcon 6s, Nano 2.0, or Nano 4.0 you're probably going to hate these shoes as I do. Third, the middle sole is carved out for the rope rubber and it makes them feel less stable for lifting because there's noting there to support you're foot on the ground. I'm sure they work great for some people, but they feel heavy and bulky which is not what I look for when I workout. Day to day just going to the store or getting the mail, probably fine. For working out I would compare them to being a kid and putting on adult shoes and klip klopping around thinking it's funny because you're pretending you have humongous feet.

I love these shoes! Perfect for every aspect of my gym workout! Plenty of support, and fit comfortably.

I used to use a pair of Nike Pegasus running shoes for pretty much everything; Sports, running, weights, HIT classes, anything which involved exercise. It shouldn't come as any surprise that eventually that caught up to me and I snapped a ligament in my ankle playing tennis in them last year. Ever since then I've been paying much more attention to which footwear I'm wearing for each type of exercise, and I'm really glad because the Metcon 9's are great. I've been using them for HIT classes and weight training (so mostly weights with some cardio mixed in) and I can notice a huge difference when compared to my running shoes. The Pegasus' are designed to roll forward to give momentum, whereas the Metcon's are much more flat and evenly distribute weight, so they're perfect for lifting heavy for things like deadlifts and squats. I feel much more stable when lifting as a result (keeping my balance over my heels instead of feeling like my weight is being rolled forward onto the balls of my feet) which in turn has made me feel more confident lifting heavier than before. If you'd have told me a year ago that a pair of shoes could make a difference to how much weight you could lift I would have laughed at you, but I now feel like a total convert. Definitely 5 stars.
