So my Nano vs Metcon article is getting a lot of traffic & I realised my Nike Metcon 6 review is not here. Make sure you follow Chalking Fitness on Instagram & YouTube to not miss the latest reviews when they’re released.
Watch out Reebok, Nike have changed the game! For me to say that (having owned 11 pairs of Nanos over the years) is something.
Nike have created something special with the Metcon 6; combing the 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐌𝐞𝐭𝐜𝐨𝐧 𝟓 with a lightweight 𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐡-𝐬𝐭𝐲𝐥𝐞 𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐫.
The trainers still has the archetypal Nike 𝐟𝐥𝐲𝐰𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦 which, with the enlarged outsole, gives 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥 𝐬𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭. But the new upper creates an overall 𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 & 𝐛𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 shoe.
Whether it’s just the increased flexibility of the upper or an actual shape redesign, the 𝐭𝐨𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐱 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐬 𝐬𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 in a way I’ve not felt in previous Metcon – more like the Nano 8 or even, dare I say, the Nano 2!
In my eyes it remains a 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐞, more so than the Metcon 5, and that’s a good thing. I now have a Reebok Classic-looking Nano X complemented by a very technically impressive Meton 6.
