TYR made their debut into the realm of fitness in this year’s 2023 NOBULL Crossfit Games. Branching out from their traditional triathlon-focused product line, TYR has created a cross-training shoe that boasts some unique and impressive specs.
The TYR CXT-1 features a stability platform that is designed to offer a ton of support and contact with the ground. For additional stability, a wrap-around side gripper reaches around the heel.
Thanks to the Surge NRG foam midsole, solid arch support, and the flexibility in the forefoot, the TYR CXT-1 works well with your dynamic or cardio training. Where these shoes stand out most is in their larger than typical heel-to-toe drop which measures 9 millimeters—a great feature for those who prefer a higher heel during their lifts.
The CXT-1 is designed for breathability with a mesh upper construction intended to keep you cool during your next sweat sesh. While there is a toe guard, the mesh upper may not hold up against repeated rope climbs. If these shoes live up to TYR’s well-respected reputation, they will be as durable as they are attractive. Towards that end, they come in a range of color options.
