Initially barred from official CrossFit contests, the Nike Metcon series has remarkably evolved into a global gym essential, surpassing its initial aim for CrossFit enthusiasts. The series has progressed impressively since its initial debut in 2015, and it is now approaching the launch of its tenth edition later this year. Celebrating this milestone, Nike plans to reissue the Metcon 1 in its original design, marking its first comeback since its debut, as a tribute to the line's journey to its tenth iteration.
For its return, the silhouette will come in the Road to Metcon X colorway, a retro of the OG Cool Grey Black University Red colorway. The sneaker maintains its hallmark combination of technologies, featuring Nike Flywire for a locked-down fit, Hyperfuse for durability, breathable mesh for comfort, and a supportive TPU wrap. Underfoot construction is designed to support the most rigorous workouts. It features a dual-density foam midsole, which perfectly balances cushioning and stability, essential for varied training routines. The outsole has a grippy rubber compound, providing excellent traction for every jump, sprint, and lift.
The Nike Metcon 1 OG Road to Metcon X will release on August 2, 2024, through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $150. For those keen on adding this iconic piece of Nike's fitness legacy to their collection, stay updated on the latest releases, raffles, and news by downloading the Sole Retriever mobile app.
