Review: Nike MetCon 1

We take a moment to review the first functional fitness shoe from Nike: The Nike MetCon 1.

Item: Nike MetCon 1 functional fitness shoe
Price: $120 USD
Manufacturer: Nike

In the above video review, John and Michael give their thoughts on the Nike MetCon 1: the first functional fitness shoe from the swoosh label.

The Nike MetCon 1 (short for “metabolic conditioning”) was first available to the public in early 2015, a short time after Nike made its emergence on the functional fitness scene, sponsoring Games athletes Josh Bridges, Brandon Swan, Khan Porter, Kenneth Leverich and Alexandra LaChance as well as the successful team CrossFit Invictus.

In this video review, we give our thoughts on the Nike MetCon 1, comparing it to some other leading functional fitnes shoes on the market, including the Reebok CrossFit Nano, and the Inov-8 F-Lite 235’s.

We highlight the good features and bad features of the shoe, where we think Nike went right and wrong, and let you know whether we think the Nike MetCon 1 is worth purchasing.

Check out the full review in the video above, and let us know your thoughts on the Nike MetCon 1 in the comment section below.
