The New Metcons Have Landed

It doesn't matter how much horse power you have under the bonnet, if you don't have the right tyres on your car then its performance is going to suffer. Thats why in a training environment making sure you are wearing the correct shoe for that particular session is key to helping you get the most out of your training and maximising your performance.

To be a top football player you need to be quick, strong, powerful and have great agility, thats why your training shoe should be as strong and versatile as you'll need to be out on the pitch.

Nike Training are ahead of the game when it comes to making sure athletes have the right support, traction, stability and comfort from their footwear to help them dominate in the weight room - and with these latest additions to the Metcon family Nike Training are pushing the boundaries even further.


Three years after the introduction of the original Nike Metcon trainer — known for its strength and providing stability — the Metcon franchise is expanding with the new Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit and Nike Metcon 3.

However, recognizing diversity in routines, the Metcon family's extension delivers targeted solutions for a variety of needs.

On one hand, the all-new Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit is designed for athletes like Kyrie Irving, Skylar Diggins and others who balance strength drills and cardio. On the other, the Nike Metcon 3 supports the high intensity training of champion competitors like Mat Fraser and Sara Sigmundsdóttir.

To meet the demands of all athletes, the entire Metcon family shares some crucial characteristics:

  • Firm rubber and external heel counter for stability
  • Sticky rubber in the forefoot for traction
  • Outsole rope wrap for abrasion protection and rope climbs
  • Molded flex grooves in the forefoot for natural flexibility
  • Low-profile heel clip to minimize drag during wall exercises and handstand pushups
