Who should buy the Nike Metcon 7 FlyEase

We recommend this shoe to the following:

  • Fans of the Metcon range
  • Athletes who need an easy-to-put-on training shoe 
  • Gym-goers who are looking for uber stable trainers
  • Individuals who incorporate a little bit of running in their routine

Who should NOT buy the trainer

The shoe's design might alienate those with wide feet. They can always go up at least half a size to achieve a more comfortable fit.

The Metcon 7 have also been said to not provide that much arch support. Those who enjoy arch support features might find this shoe lacking. 

Easy entry

The Metcon 7 FlyEase from Nike refined the 7th iteration of the Metcon to allow for an easier on and off.  The Flyease technology incorporated in it is essentially a collapsible heel design that gives way when stepped on and snaps back into place. This feature helps athletes go in and out of their trainers more effortlessly.

The Nike Metcon 7 Flyease has excellent traction

From the gym floor to the pavement and the ropes, this shoe's rubber tread grasps onto these surfaces to keep you surefooted at all times.

Flexible support

Encased in the shoe's broad flat heel is an inner plate that flexes when needed. This design delivers a sturdy base that shapes after the foot during cardio intervals.

The Metcon 7 Flyease has responsive cushioning

It is equipped with Nike's React foam and offers in-shoe comfort and support while providing springy energy return for cardio and sprints.

Lightweight construction

Given all the serious benefits, one might expect the Metcon 7 Flyease to weigh a bit more. However, it's actually featherlight.
