When Nike introduced the original Nike Metcon DSX Flyknits, people weren't sure what to think. With the second version and our first look, we're fairly certain these are going to be an outstanding pair of training shoes.

The Nike DSX Flyknit 2's feature an outsole similar to what we saw on the previous Metcon Flyknits as well as the Nike Metcon 3's. What has changed is the upper. Although Nike is continuing with the Flyknit, they've removed the tongue and completely encapsulated the foot in flyknit material.

The tentative Release Date for the Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2's is: December 2017

What this release date means is the Nike Metcon 4's should be released around the same time (hopefully.)

As you can see, Nike has taken the heel support that was used on the Nike Metcon 3's and added it to the new DSX Flyknits.

They also feature the ever popular heel clip to aid in handstand push-ups and also have a marbled outsole. We're sure to see many colorways come our way with both these and the Nike Metcon 4's.

The Achilles will have extra padding which should prevent the shoe from digging into the ankle and provide extra support during all movements, but most notably during runs.

The toe of the shoe has been reworked to provide more breathability although the lace stays have remained the same from the previous generation.

In our opinion, from solely a looks standpoint, these are a big improvement over the first DSX Flyknits.

Expect the price to remain around the $160 mark as there doesn't seem to be many big changes. Also be on the lookout for the Nike Metcon 4's which should get released right around the corner.

Titan Fan Bike Review: A Budget-Friendly and Feature Filled Air Bike

The Titan Fan Bikeis the most complete piece of cardio equipment Titan Fitness has released to date. To be frank, it’s essentially a tricked-out Assault Air Bike. Nearly every part of it from the color to the monitor reminds me of the ever-popular Assault Air Bike even down to the less than desirable chain drive. It also borrows elements from the Rogue Echo Bike. Although I prefer the Echo Bike, the Titan Fan Bike is one of the best options we’ve tested for budget home gym owners. Read more

Reebok Nano X1 Review (2021): The All-Around Training Shoes You Need for CrossFit and More

A pair of high-quality sneakers can make or break your training session. Who likes to stop mid-workout to adjust the tongue or laces of their shoes, or wiggle their foot around to achieve more comfort? Likewise, feeling like you’re gonna topple over during squats or scrape your shin due to a failed box jump is a major workout mood-killer.That’s why good training shoes are so important, and that’s why I recommend the Reebok Nano X1s for most people who do CrossFit.
