Designed to keep up and meet the various demands of athletes no matter the task, Nike introduces the much-anticipated MetCon 1 training sneaker. The versatile footwear has been crafted to handle anything that’s thrown at it, as the kicks feature an abrasion-resistant mesh utilized on the upper, with Flywire put into play underneath to account for added support.

Encompassing a firm heel to adhere to the demands of rigorous weightlifting, the drop-in midsole then provides premium support and cushioning during all other forms of training. An ultra-adhesive rubber outsole then accounts for added traction and grip for running and more specifically, rope climbing, which is what this aspect of the sole was actually designed for.

Competitive athlete Josh Bridges dishes on why he trains with the Nike MetCon1, as can be seen via the clip below, while you yourself will be able to try for a pair on January 31 through select Nike Training providers.

Not NYC, not LA.
