Nike Metcon 6 FlyEase: Designed for athletes of all levels

The Nike Metcon 6 FlyEase is a special edition of Nike Metcon 6. The only difference between these two models is that the FlyEase version features a collapsible heel counter. In fact, it is the first-ever cross-trainer from Nike to feature the FlyEase technology.

What is the benefit?

With the FlyEase, wearing the shoe doesn't require the use of any hand or loosening the closure system as the heel counter can be stepped on gently to widen the opening of the shoe, allowing effortless entry and exit of the foot. Hence, whether an athlete has disabilities that affect the process of wearing or taking off the shoe, this trainer can help with this issue.

What is the drawback?

As a result of the addition of the FlyEase, the special edition weighs a bit more than the original Metcon 6 (within 10 to 15 grams depending on the size).

  • Removable Hyperlift insert as an option to adjust heel height for different sets
  • Rubber tread on the outsole and up the sides of the shoe floor and rope-climbing traction
