Reebok Nano 6.0 : Crossfit shoes

Web Site: http://www.reebok.co.uk/nano_6.0

Cost: £90+

Description:
Reebok's 6th set of Crossfit sport shoes. Worn at the Crossfit Games 2016 by all of the professionals, they were introduced with some hype to all Crossfit lovers. 

They come in a wide range of colours and sizes, so I was in shoe heaven picking my pair. For the more adventurous or for a great present, Reebok also offer a custom build service, where you can choose colours, patterns and even have some words stitched in.

The ordering service online is good and when the shoes arrived, I was really happy with the colour and for size the shoes fit my feet first order.
Now for someone who has quite small feet, I'm always sceptical about shoes that are good for weightlifting and cardio as they have to have a good balance of stability to keep you centred and softness for when you're running.
I started wearing them to Crossfit Corinthians and we really pleased that they didn't need to be broken in heavily for comfort, I didn't have any issues with rubbing or blisters, and really from day 1 I have been impressed with them.

3 months in nearly wearing them every day with various types of workouts they are still in really good condition, nothing a quick wash wouldn't wipe away.
They have remained comfortable, and show very little wear. I especially like the good grip provided by the sole - the shoe overall has good support when lifting, but the sole has a softer feel than some other shoes I wear, so they feel more like a traditional trainer. I've also worn them for some of the running WODs and they performed there as well - overall I'm really impressed.. Please don't change them too much when the next version come out!

Quality Score: High

Value for Money:  High - moderately expensive, but long lasting, and good quality!

Buy the Nano from Amazon

Overall Score: 9 out of 10

The lovable pup, who earned the name ‘Gobi’, proved that what she lacked in size, she more than made up for in heart, as she went step for step with Dion over the treacherous Tian Shan Mountains, managing to keep pace with him for nearly 80 miles.
