What is it? Here is the description of the Reebok Reebok CrossFit Nano 8 from Reebok’s site: Since 2010, Reebok and CrossFit athletes have forged the Nano through sweat, testing, re-designing and re-testing to create the most versatile and dependable CrossFit shoe on the market. As the limits of physical capacity are pushed further every year, Reebok continues to innovate the Nano to meet the increasing demands of some of the world’s fittest athletes. No shoe has done more box jumps, DU’s, cleans, and WODs. The Reebok CrossFit Nano 8 implements Reebok’s latest upper technology innovation – Flexweave. Flexweave is a fully engineered woven technology providing enhanced breathability, flexibility and durability. This new feature and an updated bootie construction within the shoe to provide unmatched comfort.

What do I think? I love my Nano 8’s, they have a great feel to them and are great to use for workouts. Reebok has a great design where the outer body of the shoe is tough but not felt at all from inside. They feel soft inside. They have a soft toe cap unlike the Nano 7’s and don’t squeeze or hurt your feet while running. They have really nice traction for a gym environment. I first saw them around the 2018 CrossFit Open. I was able to get a pair at the Central Regional event in Nashville, TN. Walking around for three days at regionals they felt really good. Reebok offers their shoes in sizes for both adults and for kids! That makes this shoe great for kids like me that are in to CrossFit. You can even get Nano’s for toddlers.
Why do you need it & when should you use it? I use them during workouts, at school, and as everyday shoes if I am not getting them dirty. I use them for running, rope climbs, and box jumps. They would be great for anything including barbell work or sandbag runs.
How do you get it? There is no doubt that the Reebok CrossFit Nano 8will be everywhere during the Open, Regionals and Games. For now, you can order them directly from Reebok. The Nano 8 retails for the standard $130 price tag.
