Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0 Review
Performance Increase 9/10
- Amazing anatomical fit
- Durable Kevlar Overlay
- Rope climb grip insole
- Comfortable running
- Stylists perfection
- They retail above $100 but it's hard to fault them
Die hard Nano fans will be please to learn that the durable sole of the shoe remains unchanged, with that useful rope climb grip on the inner sole. Outside of the sole, a lot of the shoe has change from the previous model to better balance the shoe for more flexibility and overall comfort.
Unlike my experience with the Nano 4.0 and the Nano 5.0, these were stand out shoes in terms of comfort. The rigidness of those models in comparison is amazing and the fit was somewhat awkward. These feel like slippers they mold to the feet so well.
Features of the Reebok Crossfit Nano 6.0:
The main features are not dissimilar to the previous model stating on the Reebok website these features:
- Upper infused with Kevlar® helps provide durability and lightweight strength.
- Re-engineered anatomical design for a natural and secure fit
- Compression-molded midsole for cushion and shock absorption
- DuraGrip layer for durable toe protection
- Raised outside lug pattern on outsole for greater traction
- 4mm heel-to-toe drop for a stable platform
Other notable features:
The Nano ranges have always been wide shoes, especially in the toe-box. The same is true on the Reebok Crossfit Nano 6.0. However, it is far, far more thinner than the previous versions. It provides breathability but also is wide enough for a stable base.
The rest of the Nano 6 hugs the foot, thanks to the thanks to the ‘anatomical’ design they mention. The grip tape in the upper shoe and the molded tounge and heel provide unparalleled support and comfort. I didn’t have to break these in. This appears to resonate with other customers given their reviews too.
The styling is much better in my opinion than the Reebok Crossfit Nano 5.0. Less is more and they’ve done away with excess writing and crossfit branding. Instead theres the one simple reebok logo.
In respect to function, Reebok has undoubtedly crafted one of the best Crossfit shoes on the market. A flawless example of styling (these look good enough to wear outside the gym), quality form and function.
I found them to provide incredible comfort, stability and support. During my tests they were extremely good from box jumps to running – these exceeded my expectations. Here’s a quick breakdown:
Really surprised here, they were incredibly comfortable for running so cannot fault them here. I have a standard heel-toe running style. They had great flexibility and jumps and dynamic movements were easy.
The kevlar overlay and the inner grip was amazing and the shoes had no issue. These seemed like they would last years of rope climbs.
Fantastic. They feel really stable and strong. These are obviously not lifters like the adipowers but still provide better support and safety than regular gym shoes. If you’re looking for some of the best weight lifting shoes of 2016, check out our article on that.
In the latest iteration, the Reebok Crossfit Nano 6.0, utilizes al the advantages that has made the Nano range so great. It has that great original style that we first saw on the 2.0, the exceptional toughness of the later models and the extra bits that made the 5.0 so a standout.
Best Crossfit shoe I’ve ever tested!
