Recently Nike has attempted to overthrow Reebok as the leader of the CrossFit market with the release of the Metcon sneaker. That shoe ended up getting banned from Reebok-sponsored CrossFit competitions, so the brand are back for a second round of sparring with the release of the Metcon 2.

The versatile, hybrid qualities of the Metcon 2 are specifically created for the multifaceted nature of CrossFit training regimes. The shoe has the lightness needed for gymnastics, the durability for climbing and running, the flexibility for lunges and the supportive rigidity needed for Olympic lifts.

If you're still not convinced, Nike went so far as to illustrate all the Metcon 2's qualities in .gif form, the universal language of the Internet.

Meanwhile, compare and contrast it with the original Metcon.
