Review of Reebok Nano 5.0

 The post Reebok Nano 5.0 Review appeared first on Crossfit Shoes Rx.

"Just like many of you, we couldn’t wait to do a Reebok Nano 5.0 review and try them on ourselves. They definitely did not disappoint as a crossfit shoe. The first thing we noticed when unboxing them was that in our opinion they looked better than the Reebok Nano 4.0’s. After picking them up they immediately felt lighter. Comparing to Reebok's last version, these are actually a little lighter at 9.7 ounces. Next, we noticed they said the word Kevlar on them, referring to the high quality military-grade lightweight material used for armor among other things. In reviewing, we felt the outside visual look was very similar to the Crossfit Nanos of last year.
The comfort and feel was next up for review. As soon as we started to slip them on we noticed the new tongue, and we loved it. The last version has a very thick tongue and the Reebok Nano 5.0 has a lightweight thinner tongue. We also noticed the top of the shoe was softer. Reebok replaced the heavy thick material that was on the top of the Nano 4’s with a light material that is reinforced with the Kevlar mentioned earlier. The reason they designed the shoe this way is so that you don’t rip up your shoes during rope climbs. It is really nice to see innovation here, because we were not fans of the thick upper before. In our opinion these changes are where the shoe really shines.
Lastly, we had to get some good crossfit workouts in for a proper review. On the warmup jog we came to the conclusion that the Nano 5.0’s are more comfortable for running than the 4.0’s. Where they really shine over the 4’s is in crossfit wods that include exercises where you flex your foot, such as pushups, burpees, and lunges, for example. That’s because of the new material they used on the top of the shoe. The thick rope climb protection didn’t flex and dug into your foot. That problem is completely gone. The bottom of the Nano 5.0’s seems flatter than the 4.0’s as well, which should payoff in your Olympic lifts. Overall, many improvements were made in these shoes. As our Reebok Nano 5.0 review implies, and as can be attested by many top athletes in the sport, Reebok continues to stay on top of the game."
 

A couple more REVIEWS:

"What do I think? Structurally this shoe marries together the elements of the new Reebok CrossFit Compete 614 (Rich Froning’s designed signature shoe) with my favorite all-time CrossFit shoe, the Nano 2.0............"

http://www.holabirdsports.com/blog/reebok-crossfit-nano-5-0-review/
" The structure of the shoe combines attributes from previous models by Reebok such as the Nano 2.0 and the Reebok CrossFit Compete 6:14. The Nano 5.0 takes the more streamlined look of the Crossfit Compete with the Kevlar upper yet it also has the stripped-down style of the Nano 2.0 upper"

".... you should be very happy with the 5.0s. I am. And I would prefer using them over every CrossFit shoe I own....."

Why Do Box Jumps??


I want to be totally clear here. I don't do box jumps or said better, I am afraid of box jumps. With my surgically replaced knee I am terrified of missing the box and smashing my knee on the edge.  As a result of this fear I have always just stepped up on to the box. Until reading this article  I was totally satisfied with this substitution. Why did I need to jump up? Other than the obvious decrease in cardio stimulation, what was the difference?

Well, now I have an answer I can wrap my head around. From the article:

"Working out in the gym is the full extent of my sport. So why would I want to develop explosive hips? Answer: Squats, Snatches, and Cleans, just to name a few.
Since I shifted my focus from CrossFit to Olympic Weightlifting, it is apparent that my “hips don’t lie”! They are slow and I struggle to come out of the hole under a loaded bar. I need to develop explosiveness, so perhaps I need to include more box jumping into my weekly regimen..."


So, what am I going to do? Sometimes I will step up but I am also going to stack up some plates and jump up safely. I struggle with coming up after a squat, I tend to get a bit "stuck". If this can help I am all for it.
