Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit
I’ve worn a lot of running, training, and approach shoes over the years, without running, training, or approaching anything. Mostly because they look cool (and I’m lazy). And while the Metcon DSX Flyknit certainly fit the bill in the looks department, I’ve actually gotten a few chances to wear them in the gym. My takeaway: That Flyknit fit is perfect, your feet stay cool no matter how hard you work out, and the firm rubber sole provides a soft, but stable base for any exercise. Perhaps I should be wearing shoes for what they’re actually intended for more often.
