Designed with the gentleman who lifts (weights) in mind, the Nike Metcon 2 boasts a flat, stable platform and dual-density foam for stability and cushioning. It possesses firm and sticky rubbers to create durable traction and extra support. It might not be the most athletic of shoes, but for those who lift weight, this shoe is the one- here are five reasons why.
Deadlifts require stability in the foot to drive power through the legs. A flat out-sole and firm heel foam deliver for the movement.
Hand-stand Push Ups
Handstand push-ups require power and balance. The new zero-friction heel helps keep you steady for more reps and faster times.
Deep lunges demand flexibility in the foot. The forefoot and flex foot groves create control for lunging and twisting.
On The Ropes
Rope climbs work the entire body. The medial and lateral rope wraps allow feet to grip, clamp and climb. No more shoe shredding.
Box jumps mean clearing serious air to make the platform. Incorporated Flywire cables deliver strong, lightweight support.
