Nike Uses Free Technology on a Metcon Training Sneaker for the First Time Ever

Nike’s popular CrossFit-ready Metcon sneaker line now has a new addition. And the latest cross-training shoe bearing the name marks a first for the franchise.
To give the workout enthusiast the benefits of barefoot-style training, the Swoosh is using its acclaimed Free tech in a Metcon style for the first time with the introduction of the Nike Free x Metcon.

Most of the new look’s upper is executed with TPU-faced open mesh to make the sneaker light, breathable and durable. The style also features laser-siped forefoot flex grooves to help maximize natural motion and forefoot flexibility for running and jumping, and minimal heel siping for a stable platform for lifting.
The new sneaker also boasts black tri-stars made with softer-density foam for cushioning, an outer shell made with a firmer-density foam to keep stability from being compromised during lateral moves, and small laser dots on the outsole for grip.
