Macho man - 30 Nov 2022
I’ve had a lot of different styles of shoes through the years of powerlifting, I used to deadlift in some old Jordan’s or any kind of flat bottomed shoes I could find but I would get so annoyed having to swap to different style of shoes depending on what I was style of workout I was doing, that all finally ended. The metcon 8’s are the best all around workout shoe, they have a flatter heal for deadlifts and are still comfortable when doing cardio or any other fast paced workouts. I’ve even been wearing to work and I’m on my feet for 10-12 hours a day and my feet have were not in pain at all at the end of my days. I will say the one downside for me is probably honestly just a specific issue to just me, I have a taller foot so sometimes the laces felt a little short at times it would maybe be nice to have a little bit of a longer option included but like I said it may just be a more specific issue to me. Over all I would give the metcon 8s a 8/10 if you’re looking for a great all purpose active shoe this is your guy.
Chameleon fit (can do it all) - 30 Nov 2022
Starting with the design of the shoe, it is subtle and sharp. The shoe lines are simple making the shoe appear supporting and solid. And then just a slight pop with the wavy lines of the check part of the swoosh. The fit itself is nice for the purpose of working out. The heel feels solid and really supported when you need to push through that squat. The mid foot is locked in with the outer side extra support making the foot feel locked in. The toe section with a durable mesh and extra grid support on the outside ready for a solid push off with out feeling like you might blow out the pinky toe portion. The toe box was definitely stiff at first but after a solid few workouts it was much more flexible. The overall weight of the shoe is light which was a nice surprise mixed with the supportive feel. The lace lock technology is great to keep those laces in check while doing a lot of movement. The shoe is a great workout shoe, although I do not think I could wear the shoe all day long due to the fact the mid foot is so locked into the shoe which is great for the workout but the mid foot needs a little breathing room for comfort throughout the entire casual part of the day. What I like most about the shoe is the adaptive balance of the shoe which provides a collaboration to be able to do any type of training in just one shoe. If I were to try something new with the shoe I would test bringing the rubbery grid all the way around the big toe side of the toe box as I imagine it would feel more supportive with out giving up flexibility or breathability. Overall impressive good looking training shoe.

This is my 2nd pair of Metcon’s. I am a firm believer in wearing the right shoes for different activities. The Metcon 8 is a great improvement of the form and function from the Metcon 6 training shoe. There’s great stability when doing weightlifting and there is enough flexibility for box jumps and HIIT workouts. Even though the shoe is for all around training I would recommend staying away from running. I typically wear a men’s 8 and these fit perfectly.
