Extra durable outsole

The CrossFit Nano 7 features a crystallized rubber outsole. Straining natural rubber forms crystallites that go in the tensile direction of the rubber which increases its ability to be stretched out. The resulting material is more durable than typical rubber and has a longer lifespan.

Metasplit is made up of flex grooves that align with the metatarsals of the foot. This structure promotes proper flexion as well as supports multidirectional movements.

The tread pattern on the outsole increases the surface area which results in better traction.

The medial and lateral sides feature ridges that help during rope climbs. The horizontal markings hold onto the rope, preventing slipping and allowing quick ascents.

Shock-absorbent midsole

The CrossFit Nano 7 uses a compression molded ethylene-vinyl acetate midsole. CMEVA starts off as a block of EVA that’s placed in a mold. The foam undergoes a process of heat and pressure application to allow it to take the shape of the cast. The material does not shrink or expand when the molding frame is released. By itself, CMEVA is lightweight, resilient, and shock-absorbent.

A 360-degree polyurethane wrap reinforces the CMEVA foam. This dense material provides stability, especially during side-to-side movements. It also protects the midsole from abrasion during rope climbs.

Moisture-wicking sock liner

The Ortholite sock liner is made from the combination of PU and recycled rubber. This lightweight material does not compress too much, making it an efficient platform to absorb shock. It is also breathable and has a moisture wicking property to keep the foot fresh.
