83 / 100 based on 7 expert reviews

  • 75 / 100 | As Many Reviews As Possible

    I actually think that the Nano 7.0 is a pretty good shoe. It's just a not very well-rounded shoe. And there are other options on the market that are a little bit more well-rounded though not as good of a weightlifting shoe.

  • 86 / 100 | GYMCADDY

    The Reebok Nano 7 Weave is still better suited for weightlifting. The updated Nano Weave means a much more comfortable fit right out of the box.

  • 85 / 100 | Garage Gym Reviews

    The Weaves are broken-in out of the box, look decent, and provide everything a CrossFit athlete or someone who trains in multiple domains would want.

  • 85 / 100 | FloElite

    These new Nano 7 Weaves are tied in third with the 6s, which means they feel good, are solid training shoes, and will stand up to the regular abuses shoes get put through on a day-to-day basis in the gym.

Updates to Reebok CrossFit Nano 7 Weave

  • The original CrossFit Nano 7 received mixed reviews from consumers because the material used in upper was deemed too stiff. This update still features the same sole technology and closure, but the most notable difference is the redesigned seamless upper. Moreover, the Weave pattern now has a thicker horizontal thread construction, which allows for the natural bending of the forefoot.

Reebok CrossFit Nano 7 Weave size and fit

The CrossFit Nano 7 Weave is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. It is true-to-size, but it is advisable to try the shoe in person to get a secure and comfortable fit. The available widths are D - Medium for men and B - Medium for women.

It features a PowerLaunch toe box which means there is less room for toe-splay as it is designed to keep the toes from sliding inside the shoe.

Outsole

The outsole of the CrossFit Nano 7 Weave uses a full-length high abrasion rubber. This material withstands the typical wear and tear associated with high-intensity training. Also, it springs back to its original shape when bent.

The grip patterns add traction while the Metasplit flex grooves allow the sole unit to follow the natural bending of the forefoot.

Midsole

The CrossFit Nano 7 Weave uses a compression molded ethylene-vinyl acetate midsole. EVA by itself is lightweight, resilient, and shock-absorbent. Undergoing compression molding does not change the properties of EVA, but makes it easier to get it into the desired shape. The process of compression molding starts when a block of EVA is placed in a mold and then heated and pressurized. The foam retains the shape and size even after removal from the cast, and excess material is cleaned off.

A 360-degree polyurethane wrap reinforces the CMEVA midsole. It is a dense material that provides foot support as well as protection from abrasion.

The shoe also features the RopePro carbon rubber on both sides of the midfoot to anchor the foot during rope climbs. Carbon rubber is a material similar to car tires. It is durable, resilient and has anti-slip properties.

An OrthoLite sock liner completes the cushioning of this shoe. Made from recycled rubber that utilized an advanced proprietary polyurethane formula, the resulting product is lightweight, does not get easily compressed, has moisture management and breathable to keep the foot ventilated.

Upper

Thick and thin synthetic materials make up the NanoWeave upper of the CrossFit Nano 7 Weave. This type of fabric is breathable and lightweight, but is durable and offers adequate support to keep the foot stable during training.

Synthetic overlay found on the inner side panel, which extends to the eyelets of the lace-up closure and the outline of the heel clip serve to protect the upper from abrasion associated with daily use, particularly during intense training.

It features a traditional lace-up closure with flat laces that pass through a small slot on the tongue to keep it from sliding to the sides or front when worn.

The low-cut design of the shoe allows the ankle to move more freely while also staying secure and supported. The lightly padded tongue and collar also contribute the security of the foot.

A thermoplastic polyurethane material wraps the back portion of the shoe. It keeps the heel in place and prevents it from exiting the shoe unintentionally.
