Be Better with the Best CrossFit Shoes

A decade ago, you might have gotten a funny look if you asked someone about their WOD.

The Workout of the Day is almost ubiquitous these days as is the host of footwear options aimed at pleasing the world over.

Even though there are lots of CrossFit-friendly shoes in the market, it doesn’t mean any old shoe will do.

In our assessments of what’s out there, we’ve identified some of the best while considering key factors like cost and preferred moves.

Whether you’re a seasoned CrossFitter or just getting into the game, you’re sure to find a pick that’s right for you.

All you have left to do is strap them on, rip through your next workout, flex and scream, “WOD’s up now?” Then quietly pack your things and go.

Nike Metcon 8

The eighth iteration of this impressive silhouette still lives up to the hype.

The reworked upper definitely fixed any issues we had with its predecessor, and we really like the stability for static lifts.

The Metcon 8s are quite impressive when it comes to rope climbs, despite the lack of a rope guard on the medial side.

While the blocky heel is great for static lifts, it does hinder performance when it comes to cardio-based workouts.

Reebok Nano X2

You need to be pretty damn good to be called the official shoe of fitness.

Thanks to a re- engineered FlexWeave Knit upper and more defined heel clip, the latest iteration of the award-winningNano is.

While not a running shoe in its own right, we definitely appreciate the comfort and responsiveness of the Floatride Energy Foam, too, making it a great pick for sprints and agility training.

This is still a great kick, even though we can’t say it is the most Breathable X2 silhouette.

Puma Fuse 2.0

The brand’s original Fuse trainers sat at this spot for quite some time, and have been a go-to for budget-friendly shoes for a while.

With a stable platform and a roomier fit, we are happy to see the Fuse 2.0s keep hold of the crown.

The lockdown fit is still present, and we appreciated the grip and traction provided by the footwear.

We wouldn’t recommend these sneakers for PR days, as we noticed some unwanted compression when squat and deadlift totals began to get heavier.
