Nike Metcon 6 Flyease Review: Everything You Need to Know
The latest in NIKE innovation has arrived in Metcon - the Metcon 6 Flyease, launching at WIT Worldwide on the 31st of August.
This Metcon sees the introduction of Nike's Flyease technology, an innovative footwear system that enables the athlete to put on their shoes with ease, speed, and comfort. Nike's Flyease technology is designed to minimise the time and physicality required for an athlete to get their shoes on, without compromising any level of fit, performance or function, and challenges the belief that there is only one way to put your shoes on. It is a technology which is already seen across a number of Nike ranges including Air Jordan, Air Max and Air Zoom Running.
So ahead of the launch let's take a look at how the technology works and who it is designed for...
THE METCON FLYEASE INCREASES ACCESS TO THE METCON RANGE WITHOUT COMPROMISING ANY FUNCTION, FIT OR PERFORMANCE.
Nike Metcon 6 Flyease Review
HOW IS THE METCON 6 FLYEASE DESIGNED?
Flyease editions of Nike's most popular shoes are intended to deliver improved usability without compromising any function or performance. The Metcon 6 Flyease edition is therefore fundamentally designed upon the model of the all new Metcon 6 iteration. You can therefore expect to see all the latest developments from the latest 5 to 6 Metcon update, most notably the increased breathability through the introduction of a lightweight mesh upper. You can find out more about the fundamental Mecton 6 design updates in our 'Everything You Need to Know About the Metcon 6' Newsroom.
The main point of difference in the Flyease iteration is centred around the TPU tail gate. This heel counter (or lack of) allows the athlete to step in to the shoe and scrunch their foot inside with the heel counter collapsing around their heel. The tailgate then rebounds back into place, securing the athlete's foot into the shoe without any requirement to tie laces. The ultimate in ease and speed.
The benefits of the TPU tailgate are then mirrored when removing the shoe. A simple step onto the tailgate with the opposite foot widens the heel opening and allows for the athlete to slide their foot out with ease.
THE METCON FLYEASE IS FOR ALL - EVERYONE.
WHO IS THE METCON 6 FLYEASE FOR?
Of course the introduction of Flyease technology and this easy access TPU tailgate, expands access to the Metcon range and unlocks the benefits of Metcon performance to more athletes than ever before, including a new number of adaptive athletes. “When I’m competing against other people, I’m holding myself to the same standards as every able-bodied athlete does,” says Logan Aldridge, the Fittest One-Armed Man on Earth. Logan has been trialing and training in the all new Metcon 6 Flyease for a number of months prior to launch. and is a huge fan of the universally accessible design of the Flyease Metcon 6.
But the shoe is not just for adaptive athletes it is for all, everyone. Designed to ease the process of every athlete through innovative technology and universal design for all. Whether you're throwing your Metcons on in a rush because you're late for your workout, or looking to kick your Metcons off before strapping into your Romaleos for a big lift, Flyease tech will allow you to make every transition easier, quicker and soon Flyease will be second nature to us all.

Some frequently asked questions!
What is the difference between Metcon 6 and FlyEase?
The main distinction between the two is that the Flyease boasts a heel counter which allows the athlete to slide straight into the shoe without having to adjust laces, ultimately increasing the speed at which you can start working out.
Is Nike Metcon 6 good for walking?
You can walk in the Nike Metcon 6. The shoe has a flexible and breathable upper and is great for a quick walk.
Are Nike Metcon 6 good for squatting?
The Nike Metcon 6 comes with two hyperlift inserts adding 6mm on the heel for women and 8mm for men. This aids squatting as it improves positioning throughout the movement and encourages glute activation in the ascent of a squat
Can Metcon 6 be used for running?
You can run in the Metcon 6! They do perform best in short distance runs due to the minimal cushioning which then transfers over well to lifting and plyometric movements such as burpees or box jumps.
