Fit Foot Fashions! Shoes for Cross Training: The Crossfit Nano 2.0



Hi Everyone!

Every time I wear these shoes in one of my workout videos I get tons of comments and questions about my shoe choice. I have several different sneakers that I like to wear for my workouts, and the Cross Fit Nano's are high on my list of favorites for indoor workouts. 

They are breathable and comfortable. The low profile forces my body to work harder to attain balance in some of my exercises, which causes my intrinsic muscles to strengthen, instead of relying on a lot of cushion for stability. 

These are minimalist shoes, which means they have a low heel to toe drop (not a lot of cushion elevating your heels). This does require some additional flexibility through your Achilles. They offer a bit more support and lateral stability than typical minimalist shoes, allowing you additional flexibility of movement and support during workouts that require a lot of transitional movements. 

The flexibility in the sole makes these shoes good for movements like Burpees and Lunge Jumps. They are light enough that you don't feel weighed down during sprints or box jumps. I taught most of my boot camp classes wearing these shoes. 

I have worn these shoes on the treadmill, and during shorter runs (3-5 miles). It definitely felt different. For my running needs I prefer a sturdier shoe made specifically for running, but on lighter run days or interval workouts these are great. 

Also, they come in 20 different color combinations! :) 

There will be a new workout tonight, so be sure to check back!

  1. Very cool to get a female's perspective on these shoes. Everything I've read thus far is how they worked for Men. I don't know if you read the really long review of these on http://wlshoes.com but they basically love them and said they are hands down the best "gym shoe" to buy. Also, they come in a lot of colors but you have the option to fully customize your shoe as well through Reebok's site. Let us know how you end up liking these!

  3. I have a problem finding shoes, too. It seems like as soon as I find one I like, the manufacturers go and change them.
