Nike Savaleos: A fusion of the Romaleos and Metcons
Compared to the Romaleos, the Savaleos are considered the lighter and multi-disciplined kin. It has a lower heel height of 12.7 mm than the Romaleos' 19 mm for better performance on a broader range of exercises. However, it also means that there's an increased mobility demand during lifting.
The Savaleos adopts the Metcon's handstand push-up clip and increased grip in the toebox sides for stability during dynamic lateral movements.
