You chase the clock, challenging and encouraging each other all in the name of achieving goals and making gains. Our go-to model for training relies on a lighter, more breathable upper than our previous edition to complement our standards of durability and comfort, so that you can float through your cardio, power through your lifts and dominate your workouts.

I have had my eyes on these shoes for a while and I am so glad I have them now. Usually, I lift weights in my running shoes, but these have changed my mind. The second I put them on I felt support exactly where I needed it to lift heavier. They helped my balance for squats and deadlifts. This allowed me to shift my focus to perfecting my form instead of staying upright. I did notice that the sole does not allow for normal foot flexion, so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend for cross training or HIIT workouts. However, they are perfect for my boot camps that are part spin class part weight lifting. The shoes do run slightly small as I wear an 9.5 in my epic react running shoes and the 9.5 in these feel a bit more snug, maybe size up one half size for more comfort. Overall I am very happy with the shoe and they are now a normal part of my workout shoe rotation.

The shoes run small. I consider my foot to be skinny and narrow and the shoes still fit me tight. The issue with the shoe is the tongue. The tongue is squishy, takes up too much room and moves too much. The shoes are so tight on my foot that I don’t have to lace them to walk. I definitely don’t recommend for wide feet. I normally wear a size 6 women but I think I should have got a size 7 instead. The two things I liked about the shoes were the reflective material used on the outside and the Velcro lace lock on the tongue. Other than that they run too small and the heels are very stiff. The shoe isn’t flexible to have long walks or run with.

The Nike Metcon 8 are very comfortable and durable shoes. Even after wearing them for long periods of time walking on the treadmill during work, my feet feel great. They were a little tight and stiff at first, but after wearing them for about a week they loosened up. If I could change one thing about them it would be the hard heel since it makes it louder than most other shoes.
