The shoe’s molded flex grooves, light breathable construction, and embroidered TPU reinforcement also make it uniquely optimized for sprints, climbs, box jumps, distance runs, and day-to-day abuse.An abrasion-resistant film around the midfoot is critical to reducing heat and friction during a high octane training regimen, and the Metcon’s dependable traction performs on the gym floor, the track, and training grounds far off the beaten path.Specifications:Men’s Cross-Training Shoe, new for 2017 Updated drop-in midsole for added cushioning and flexibility Low profile, max-support heel for stability and minimizing drag Molded flex grooves in the forefoot Lightweight Vectran filaments (Flywire) for optimal structure and support

Welp, it looks like the first sightings of the new Nike Metcon 3 are appearing from the wild.

It’s crazy to think that the Nike Metcon 1 was just released, but these new Metcon 3’s look freaking HOT!

These appear to feature a fly-knit type outer with an updated sole and side panel. If they’re anything like the Nike Metcon 1’s or 2’s we can be sure they’re going to be popular and a great shoe for training.

The heel looks to be different as well with a more contoured shape and somewhat shiny, similar to some of the more recent Kobe basketball shoes.
