Who should buy the Reebok Nano X2

This Reebok training shoe is for you if you are looking for a trainer that: 

  • has a well-balanced cushioning system, making it OK for both lifting and aerobic exercises
  • is suitable for rope climbing and other CrossFit exercises

Who should NOT buy this trainer from Reebok

The Reebok Nano X2 is unpleasant for those who do not want their shoes to have a lot of toe space. They are better off with the Reebok Speed TR

Also, those who want their shoes to be really breathable are not going to be happy with the X2. The Reebok Flexagon 3 is a better pick for them.

With the Reebok Nano X2, it will be comfort all over

The upper is structured to deliver more support and containment, and reviewers appreciate that it is actually lined with fabric underneath to ensure next-to-skin comfort. The rear area is also softer and more flexible than the X1. This part is also a bit more padded. Underfoot, there's the Floatride foam that provides ample cushioning and impact protection.

Support and lockdown? Never a problem!

The Reebok Nano X2 is replete with features that ensure consistent foot containment. The lacing system is quite robust, and does a really good job of keeping the shoe securely on even during the most aggressive moves.

Underneath the well-padded heel area is an internal counter that keeps the foot in place. It is complemented by a heel clip that runs from right above the foam up until both the lateral and medial sides of the forefoot. This special feature keeps the shoe stable and ensures forefoot flexion during explosive movements.

Firm enough for lifting, soft enough for running

The Floatride midsole tooling has a rare offer: it is not only firm and responsive enough to support lifting but also cushioned enough to keep you comfortable while running and/or doing other cardio exercises. Fitness enthusiasts are happy with the versatility that this training shoe brings.

Gain traction with the (outsole of the) Reebok Nano X2

The outsole of the X2 is an exact replica of the X1's. According to avid gym-goers, this setup offers a dependable grip on smooth gym floors, keeping you stable and safe. This is also equipped with an additional feature that allows this shoe to be suitable for rope climbing.

Construction that you can depend on

The shoe is well put together with no noticeable blemishes; and this shoe is really as good as it looks! Even after being used for different types of workouts, gym rats are amazed that it still shows no serious signs of wear and tear. With this, we can fairly expect this trainer to last long.
