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. Sworn by some of the greatest athletes in the world, intended for lifters, trainers, go-getters, it’s still the gold standard that delivers day after day.

I was so excited for these to come out, but I ended up being so disappointed. The toe box is wider than the 7's and 8's, however, it is not "foot-shaped," so I still had to size up half a size in order for my toes to fit. Even then, the lateral sides of my foot/toes were squished against the side of the shoe, and the medial sides had a lot of extra room. The ankle area came up too high, so it rubbed against my malleoli (ankle bones). Overall, the shoe was heavy and stiff. I am still wearing my MetCon 5's from 2020, and I am desperately hoping Nike will go back to making something more similar to those! :(

Love these for the gym and where there’s traction, however the downside is that these shoes are slippery on tiles. I might have to scratch the bottom on the pavement.

A comfy strength workout shoe. Plenty of heel support and toe box space.
