The Nike Metcon 2 is the perfect item to add to your gym bag this holiday season.
Nike designed the Metcon 2 with the weightlifter in mind. The flat sole is constructed of dense rubber, which maximizes force transfer to the ground and doesn't alter your body's natural form on heavy lifts—a common problem when athletes wear running shoes when they lift weights.
The upper consists of a lightweight, breathable material that features Flywire cables to lock your foot into position and eliminate unwanted movement. Rubber is strategically added to the midfoot to prevent wear and tear from activities such as climbing a robe; and the heel is reinforced to handle sliding up and down a wall when performing Handstand Push-Ups.
The result is a shoe that provides the function, support and durability to withstand the most intense training sessions.
