Nike React Metcon Turbo Review: Everything You Need to Know
There is a new Metcon on the block...the Nike React Metcon Turbo.
This all new Metcon (which is launching 10th Feb) has already caused quite a stir amongst Metcon-heads. Fans went WILD for the shoe when photos first leaked on fan accounts such as @NikeMetconClub and @NikeMetconTribe last month, desperate to cop the shoe as soon as it dropped. This excitement was followed up by an instant sell-out of an exclusive US Turbo colour-way when it dropped at WIT USA on the 1st of February. The Turbo seems to be the hottest ticket in Metcon world right now, everyone is desperate to get a hold of one. But is the shoe worth the hype...?
It could just be the best Metcon ever.
The Turbo is not only a beautiful shoe to look at with sleek aesthetics and asymmetric detailing, it is a design and engineering masterpiece. This is the Metcon that you NEED to push the pace, chase your best performance, and frankly if you are doing the Open this year, this is the shoe that should be on your feet. You will NEED to sign up to shop the Turbo first, with early access 1 hour ahead of launch, to stand a chance of copping your pair.
So let's take a look at exactly what makes the Turbo the must have shoe of the Season....
"THE FASTEST METCON EVER"
As the name Turbo suggests, speed really is the name of the game with the Turbo. The goal that Nike had when designing this shoe was to create 'the fastest Metcon ever." The shoe is designed specifically for the athlete that is striving to push their pace and get that extra percent faster...the athlete that is sprinting from box jumps to double-unders and then throwing themselves up on the rig...the athlete that needs to accelerate.
This athlete needs more than your 'all-rounder' shoe. To have the edge and to move at their best, this athlete needs a lighter more malleable shoe, that still has all the essential features of a stable, comfortable training shoe. Essentially this athlete needs a shoe that has everything you need, and nothing that you don't. The Turbo delivers exactly that - the optimal balance.
