First unveiled here, the Nike Metcon 1 training shoe is set for release this weekend. A straight line can be drawn from the breathrough Nike Trainer 1, originally released 27 years ago, with this latest silhouette, which supports workouts through the highest levels of athletic competition. Technical features include a breathable yet abrasion-resistant mesh upper, equipped with Nike Flywire technology in the mid-foot for a lock-down fit and stability during rapid changes in direction. A dual-density midsole is appended with a firm heel to handle the rigors of weight lifting, along with additional density courtesy of a "drop-in" midsole. Finally, the durable outsole features a high-density rubber heel for greater stability, a sticky rubber forefoot for added traction, and a thin web rubber in the mid-foot to protect against the abrasion of rope climbing. Look for the Nike Metcon 1 to launch in stores January 31st.
