Olympic lifting, running, and gymnastics become easier with this brand new model, which features a slick design. Thanks to the Kevlar upper, the shoe is durable and supportive, the raised outsole lug patterns provide improved traction, the CMEVA midsole ensures good cushioning. The cons of the model are the tongue is proved to be not as padded as in the previous model and the shoe may run small.

The Reebok Men’s R Crossfit Nano 5 comes in the great list of the colorways so everyone can pick up the most suitable pair for him.

The Nano 5.0’s has some great updates to the structure and design of which has really elevated the comfort level of shoes. New addition to a shoe is the elastic strap that runs from the inner midsole of the shoe to the tongue. What this helps with is really locking your foot into that shoe, making it ultimately feel much tighter, more secure and more comfortable. Also, the shoe’s toe box is improved by making it slightly narrower than the 4’s. The tongue in this model is modified and now is much thinner (using a thin rubber construction as opposed to usual thick fluffed up mesh) and designed it chock full of holes for breathability. With the Nano 5’s, Reebok also did something completely new by ditching typical rubber outer mesh for a rigid Kevlar outer mesh.

Laced up and strapped in, these shoes give a glove-like fit. Also, these shoes limit forward or backward movement within the shoe and also side-to-side movement, which is very important in powerlifting exercises. This model has a better platform for stability when lifting heavy loads. But also, it’s plenty light and flexible enough for dynamic movement.

The Nano’s 5 allow your heels to stay on the ground but put your soles where they should be and provide support.
