The latest version of Nike’s toughest training shoe plays off tactical weight vests, which the fittest of the fit wear to help maximize effort while they run, pull-up, push-up, air squat and more.
Each pair comes with at least five patches inspired by military nostalgia, but with a Nike twist (like a feisty bee from an old fighter jet reaching for a kettlebell or a tornado lifting weights.)
Athletes can stand on the rubber floor or the street by adding patches from their gym, vest or favorite athlete to the mix.
The 4 XD boasts all the brawn of the Metcon 4 plus a new dense pattern of strategically zoned haptic print (inspired by barbell knurling) that helps to further enhance the durability across the mid and forefoot.
The Nike Metcon 4 XD Patches will be available in Nike Special Field System Collection colors (tan, army green and triple black for men; dusty pink, lavender, and gray for women) May 3 on nike.com and at select retailers. Has a slightly different mix of patches, and the patches are not sold separately.
