We’re nearing the two-year mark of the global pandemic, but we’re still feeling its impact.

The pandemic has put an immense strain on the production lines of major shoe brands across the globe. The result? A shoe shortage that’s going to be felt by brands, retailers, and shoppers around the world, with mass cancellations and delays in shipments and delivery due to factory stand-downs and production delays.

With the holidays just around the corner, a lot of athletes — and their loved ones — are starting their shopping lists. Because of the delays in production time, many of the shoes expected to arrive at retailers for the holiday period have either been delayed until next year or canceled altogether.

We highly recommend that you place your orders as early as possible this year so you don’t miss out on the limited stock available and to ensure your new pair of kicks arrives in time for the gift-giving season.

Shoes for Every Athlete

The WOD Life offers an extensive selection of shoes for functional fitness, Olympic weightlifting, and everything in between. Here are just a few examples of what we carry.

Nike Metcon

For the athlete who needs a great all-around shoe, we have the Nike Metcons. It sets the standard for both weight training and cardio — durable, stable, and comfortable, all at once.

The wide, flat heel makes it ideal for heavy lifts, while the React form adds cushioning for high-intensity cardio. Rubber wraps help you grip and climb the rope faster, and the handstand clip at the heel minimizes drag during wall exercises.

If you want a shoe that can do it all, this is the one.

Reebok Nano

The Reebok Nano is not to be ignored. It’s been perfected by athletes, for athletes. The Nano is built of Flexweave knit, making it breathable but durable. Floatride Energy Foam in the forefoot gives you a responsive feel.

They’re versatile and lightweight, making them perfect for functional fitness.

Nike Romaleos

For athletes who are laser-focused on their Olympic lifts, the Nike Romaleos are your go-to.

If you want to get under some serious weight, the Romaleos will support you with a design made for strength and stability. The shoe has a supportive midsole and wide, flat outsole. The slight heel lift allows for better mobility during squats, cleans, and snatches.

When you lift in a pair of Romaleos, that next PR is just around the corner.

While holiday shopping might look a little different this year, The WOD Life is still committed to bringing you the same high-quality gear and equipment that we always have. Be sure to leave yourself a little extra time to do your shopping this year!
