They create the sneakers, which are able to cope with a full range of CrossFit movements and exercises from rope climbing and squats to running and jumping, without sacrificing durability and rather good and attractive design of the shoe.
To date, you can choose from lots of options and even get lost in that variety, but if you’re really looking for the best of the best, check our recommendations – these 3 super-models for CrossFit, which definitely stand out, according to the majority of customers’ reviews.
This Nike’s training shoe has been steadily holding the top position in all charts since it was first made in 2011. Its exceptional durability, breathability (due to quality mesh materials), excellent lacing system, and an unbelievable range of diverse color combinations turned this model into perfect footwear for running, gym workouts, CrossFit exercises, and even some team sports.
This model has become the seventh updated version of the well-known Reebok CrossFit Nano sneakers. The shoe features incredible versatility, allowing for wearing it not only for usual training, but also for box-jumping, lunging, deadlifting, and tennis. Power launch toe box in the new edition of the shoe offers improved power, fit, and stability; reinforced heel clip and performance sole give stability, traction, and comfort; while the natural splay and de-coupled heel provide a run-able crash pad.
New Balance says “strength is in its DNA” and we have no reasons to disagree: the 5th generation of NB men’s Minimus 20 has inherited all the best of its predecessors and spiced it up with new design and technologies. Besides the traditional Vibram sole for barefoot-inspired performance and the versatility, it features a new burrito tongue to keep it all in place and provide a better fit, a breathable upper with no-sew overlays for added durability, and the Asym Collar that helps fill voids between the ankle for a more natural-feeling fit.
