Its been expertly crafted to reduce the unnecessary physical stresses imparted on the CrossFit trainer. This means fewer injuries. This means a speedier recovery.

- Great degree of comfort
- Kevlar material makes it one of the more durable shoes on the market
- Flexibility allows for greater range of movement
- Very stable
- Could use improved arch support
- A bit expensive
- Makes for poor running experience
- Been using these for mixed training workouts, like the wide toe box this works a treat for me. The support from the heel is really nice, I am a shoe size 9 so I went straight for size 9 and the fit is accurate. These shoes so far are excellent.
- I tried the minimus but these are far better, very nice while lifting weights, the toe box lets me splay my toes for more support, nice heel support stops any feeling of tumbling back but the same heel does feel clunky, even for short runs
- Nice shoe, durability is solid and so is the comfort, for the usual run of workouts in the gym these are good but not so hot for running, the heel is very supportive for weights but it don’t help much for jogging. I have ran in these but it don’t feel right.
- Perfect for treadmill, used them for power lifting and these are fine, to sum up the shoe it is really versatile but skip running, it's not up to it. Factor in the price and not a bad shoe generally.
- These feel good on my feet, they are a good fit and very light eventhough the heel is chunky but it gives great support, done some running Hit in these and they were fine.
- Two months in and moderate jogging, these are ok, nice shoe to look at, it feels light and the comfort is sound. Good for weight training but not at the level of real weight shoes.
- The shoe is a worker and fits great, nice for croos fit and I use them a lot in the gym, the stability is there along with comfort but I haven't tried them for running yet.
- Didn't need to break these in and that surprised me, out of the box, on the feet and performing, nice weight, light and supportive and the heel gives extra balanced support when I'm working out at my gym.
- For me it's only Nano shoes because I do a lot of workouts which are heavy duty. The shoe is sturdy, bang on for true fit, it's the best Nano I had so far.
- Falling apart in just a month and my workouts arn't dynamic, it's the glue work, it just isn't holding the logo on the tongue and the kevlat seams are drifting apart. Expected better from nano.
- I got these and I think for Reebok that these are a let down, I'm an avid cross fit trainer and the shoe just does not perform to my expectations.
- The ship ripped at the bottom the second time I did rope climbs, the overall shoe seems well made so I'm going to get my wear out of these and move onto a better shoe brand.
- Two months and I see the sole is peeling away, used Nano for years so this was not a good surprise, they also feel tighter than the size and the only support is in the heel.
The heel also features a considerable amount of padding to aid in this. Even when these shoes are worn for hours on end, they maintain a high-level of comfort. They do not require an extensive breaking-in period and should be ready for use fresh out of the box.
The woman’s line features in its palette, burgundy, “crisp blue,” neon blue, white, and blue with some pink. Unlike the 5.0, this version of the shoe is devoid of print on its upper. It does not come with the large and gaudy CrossFit brandings that plagued other versions.
Instead of the words, “Reebok Crossfit,” is displayed through smaller, subtler lettering. The shoe sports a slimmer toe box, and an off-center tongue. Reebok’s delta symbol is prominently displayed on its side and is reflective.
This is not to say that your toes will burst through on first use, but it will lose rigidity fairly quickly. They should be good be for about half a year’s worth of daily use before you start to notice, though. A delightful part of the shoe is the Rope-Pro+ technology. This material helps to reduce the damage a shoe might incur when used for rope climbs.
This helps to prevent the wearer from tripping over them. It is, along with using a sensible pair of gloves, a great way to avoid injury.
- Varied styles
- Polyurethane nanoshell
- Rope-Pro+ technology
- R55 Rebound Reebok technology
That does not mean, though, that it is without fault. It lacks, for example, the proper outsole and padding to incorporate running into your exercise regimen. While this does little to diminish its effectiveness as a strictly CrossFit shoe, some versatility in its applicability would’ve been nice.
The shoe also does not have much in the way of arch support. The biggest thing most likely to concern would-be buyers, though, might just be its price. It's a bit more expensive than some competing products.
All in all, the grievances surrounding this shoe seem minor when one considers the benefits it provides. Reebok has proven that it understands the needs of its patrons in the CrossFit world. If you’d like to improve your workout and receive more bang for your buck, look no further than the Reebok Crossfit Nano 6.0.
