The Reebok Nano 8 looks to build upon the success of the Reebok Nano 7 Weaves by using a similar upper. If they perform as well as the Nano 7 Weave's, they'll be an outstanding shoe.

Reebok Nano 8 Flexweave Shoes
(4 ratings & reviews)
Since 2010, Reebok has forged the Nano through sweat, testing, re-designing and re-testing to create our most versatile and dependable CrossFit shoe in the box. The Nano 8 was developed with insight from the CrossFit community, and has been engineered for maximum comfort. The re-engineered Flexweave upper provides breathability, stability, and durability, and the added cushioning in the forefoot help keep you comfortable. The CrossFit-specific outsole gives you grip in the box so you can hit your PRs. Materials: Flexweave Technology weaves fibers into a figure-8 to create a strong, flexible upper Designed for: Varied CrossFit WODs New heel bootie construction provides ultimate performance comfort Forefoot flex grooves for flexibility Low-cut design for added mobility Toe Tection provides durability in the toe area for high intensity workouts Weight: 10oz; 4mm Drop

The Reebok Nano 8's feature similar outsole to the Nano 7 and Nano 7 Weaves. This was expected as the typical lifespan of an outsole and last is two years due to the cost of designing and creating new molds. The first thing that stands out to me is the weave of the upper running heel to toe rather than side to side. I don't know how this will affect the flexibility of the shoe, but it will provide for some cool colorways.

The tentative Release Date for the Reebok Nano 8's is: January 2018

Reebok has in the past tried to release their Nano's around the same time or right before the Metcon's. We'll see if they try that strategy again this year.

One of the big changes on the shoe is the addition of a flexible heel collar. This should provide for a more comfortable fit and prevent the sides of the shoe digging into your ankle.

The tongue also appears to have extra padding added which is something people have asked for, for some time. All in all, we're excited to see how the Nano 8's perform and compare to the new Nike Metcon 4's and Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit 2's.

Expect the price to remain around the $130 mark as there doesn't seem to be in any really major changes.
