Product Summary

Nike designed their MC Trainer 2 with versatility and functionality as the primary goal. These multipurpose athletic shoes feature a flat base that is wider around the heel for stabilization when weight training, lateral support straps for a snug fit, cushioned insoles that rise on the sides to keep the foot in place during lateral movements, and a rubber tread. This rubber tread is thicker in the heel area to support strength training and thinner in the forefoot which allows for the flexibility needed when running. Nike claims that with the MC Trainer 2, you can seamlessly transition between weight training and sprinting without needing to change shoes.

For less than $100, the MC Trainer 2 is a solid choice for anyone seeking a shoe that supports a diverse training program. Those with wide feet may find them too narrow and there are a few reports of heel slippage.
