The Nan0 6.0s are definitely worthy of your money; these are definitely one of the best CrossFit shoes if not the best CrossFit shoes at the moment.
The Reebok Nano 6.0 are hands down the best CrossFit shoes on the market. We prefer these over the 7.0s.
I like it more than my previous Nano's and I prefer it to my Nike Metcon's.
The Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0 are comfortable and practical allround CrossFit shoes, and the best option of CrossFit WOD’s that combine dynamic exercises with strength exercises.
Updates to Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0
- Originally released in time for the 2016 CrossFit Games, the Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0 has been re-released a few times over the years with only some minor changes being applied to it. For the 2019 CrossFit Nano 6.0, though it still uses Kevlar for its upper, the branding on the forefoot has been removed. There’s also a new DuraGrip layer that protects the toe box.
- The low-profile midsole uses a compression-molded EVA (CMEVA) foam. This platform is crafted to be sturdy and incompressible.
- The outsole is made of durable rubber with razor blade treads for maximum traction. The RopePro component on the medial side of the midfoot helps to grip ropes while the Metasplit innovation at the forefoot promotes natural foot movements.
Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0 size and fit
Both men and women describe the Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0 as being true to size and width. It comes in US sizes 7 to 14 and 5 to 10, for male and female athletes, respectively. As for the width, it is only available in a Medium width for both versions. It has been constructed with an anatomically shaped fit to give the toes room to spread while the heel remains snug.
A gum rubber outsole protects the underside of the Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0. It features a razor blade tread pattern at the forefoot for exceptional grip while the larger lugs adorn the heel for steadiness.
The RopePro technology is placed on the medial side of the midfoot. This element bites the rope down to help with rope ascents and prevents early deterioration of the midsole due to abrasion.
At the forefoot, the Metasplit innovation can be seen. It allows the platform to move naturally with the foot by mimicking the actions of the metatarsals of the foot.
The Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0 features a CMEVA midsole. This compound is engineered to be lightweight and compact to deliver a low-profile construction. It does not easily compress to support the user during heavy lifting but that does not take away its ability to absorb shock.
The Reebok CrossFit Nano 6.0 employs a mesh upper with Kevlar infused in critical areas. The mesh helps ventilate the foot chamber while the sandpaper-textured Kevlar overlays prevent the fabric from ripping or tearing.
This model features a Powerlaunch toe box which means it has been constructed with more room for the toes to spread for better stability during agile movements. There’s also a DuraGrip layer on the toe box to protect the toes during pushups, burpees, sled-pushes, and the likes.
The CrossFit Nano 6.0 features a traditional lacing system. The interior is lightly padded to keep the fit snug and the wearer comfortable.
Colorways and special editions
Reebok released several iterations of the CrossFit Nano 6.0. These models use the same technologies as the original but have been enhanced aesthetically.
CrossFit Nano 6.0 Covert
What sets the CrossFit Nano 6.0 Covert apart from its predecessor is that the sandpaper-textured material of the upper wraps the midsole. Because of this design, the midsole looks like a part of the upper, like it’s hiding in plain sight, thus the ‘Covert’ in its name.
CrossFit Nano 6.0 Everyday Heroes
The CrossFit Nano 6.0 Everyday Heroes is part of a collection that aims to honor people who inspire others in and out of the gym. This iteration looks similar to the CrossFit Nano 6.0 Covert, but the rubber features a camouflage print.
