Every time we think the Nano can’t get any better, Reebok surprises us. Enter: The Nano X1. This is the 11th edition of the Nano, and just like the iterations that came before it, it has continued to evolve into something even better.
Tal Short, Reebok senior product manager, says, “The Nano X1 is the most refined and versatile iteration of the Nano to date. We made sure to keep attributes of previous iterations that consumers love, while evolving and adding other features to deliver a best-in-class product that we feel meets the demands of the wider, modern-day fitness community.”
Let’s get into some of the details.
3 Things to Know About the Nano X1
1. It’s Built for Unbeatable Comfort
We all know that if your shoes aren’t 100% comfortable, then you performance will undoubtedly suffer in some way.
The Nano X1 marries Reebok’s Floatride Energy cushioning in the forefoot with stability and precision. It’s lightweight and responsive, molding to your unique footprint — perfect comfort even with a running WOD, without being squishy or collapsing under the weight of your body.
Important to note is that it’s noticeably lighter than the Nano X (with a smaller tongue, too). Take a look at these comparisons:
A size 10US men’s shoe: 332g
A size 9US women’s shoe: 278g
A size 10US men’s shoe: 414g
A size 9US women’s shoe: 353g
Add in a slight increase in the heel drop, and you’ve got an all-in-one training shoe.
You would think that a shoe so light wouldn’t be capable of adapting to other arenas of functional fitness, but the X1 is already proving to be impressively responsive to everything from rope climbs to burpees.
While some shoes sacrifice performance for the sake of comfort (or vice versa), the Nano X1 manages to master it all. You can wear this shoe through running and sprinting and well into heavy lifting. It does it all.
Plus, it’s got Reebok’s iconic Flexweave in the upper, which offers extra breathability without hampering the durability and longevity of the shoes. And you better believe it’s an upgrade from the last iteration of the material.
There are actually two options to choose from, with this material: Flexweave Grit, which offers more durability and high-level support, and Flexweave Knit, which is a more breathable, lightweight avenue with an open, roomy toebox.
2. The Versatility is Unparalleled
The Reebok Nano X1 is the ultimate training shoe. Whether you’re knocking out rep after rep of power snatches, banging out box jumps, or suffering through endless burpees, this shoe will carry you through even the most grueling of workouts.
What’s so incredible about the Flexweave knit is that it allows for unleashed multidirectional movement while still providing the support you need.
3. Reebok Leveled Up the Aesthetics
Let’s be honest: We don’t only want a shoe that works. We also want one that looks good.
This was a big part of the design process for the Nano X1. You can stick with a more traditional color combination of black and white, if that’s your jam. But they’ve also incorporated other vibrant color patterns and palettes, if you feel like spicing something up a bit.
Between the comfort and design, you can wear this shoe just about anywhere — from the box to the grocery store.
