If you’ve spent any time in the gym, you know that footwear can make or break your performance. Reebok is ready to level up our fitness game. The Nano 9 is coming, and this shoe is going to take your gym sessions to a whole new level.
It’s truly the first shoe of its kind: made for everyone, for everything. From the track to the weightlifting platform to your rope climbs, the Nano 9 will take you from WOD to WOD, no matter what the box demands of you.
It’s not just its sleeker and more athletic appearance that’s got everyone talking. It’s the shoe’s functionality. For starters, the sole is different. Tal Short, Senior Performance Footwear Product Manager at Reebok, noted that the update is to accommodate the increase in running that we’re seeing in WODs. “We divided the rubber on the bottom of the shoe in half, which allows your foot to really bend, and lets you feel a better ride when you’re running.”
You’ll notice extra cushioning, making this a shoe you can wear anywhere, from the gym to the grocery store. Short says, “I’ve been testing these shoes for a while, and what I like is that you can wear them all day, and your feet don’t hurt.”
Perhaps the biggest change of all is the mid-sole wrap, which extends around the back of the shoe. Because your shoes take such a beating in workouts, the wrap adds an element of protection while also giving you a more stable base throughout movements like squats — something we could all use a little more of.
Designing the Nano 9 truly was a collaborative effort. Everyone from athletes to bloggers tested them and provided feedback throughout the entire process, from start to finish. Reebok wanted to create a shoe anyone could benefit from, and the Reebok Nano 9 hits the nail on the head.
