CHEYENNE, Wyo. - April 11, 2014 - PRLog -- An outdoor gear review website increasing exponentially in popularity, OutdoorGearLab recently released their Top Shoe For CrossFit Training review. Seven pair of CrossFit shoes were put to the test daily for two weeks while performing standard WODs. Each pair of shoes was evaluated in the categories of support, comfort, sensitivity and protection and specifically critiqued on how well they performed while running and weightlifting. Designing a shoe that can perform well while both weightlifting and running proves to be challenging for companies to produce. Weightlifting requires increased stability while comfort and flexibility is key for a running shoe. After many highly intensive workouts, the products were scored and the Editors' Choice, Top Pick and Best Buy awards were granted appropriately.

The winners include:

The Reebok Nano 3.0 wins the Editors' Choice award. According to Gear Review Editor, Jacob Jizrawi, "The Nano 3.0 has tons of features that make them a practical choice for this sport. Reebok is really making a name for itself in this training shoe niche by creating several different designs of this shoe in an order to perfect it. Since the last version upgrades include a 4mm toe drop, a guard for when climbing a rope, a sticker sole with increased stability and a toe cage that has been modified to be more protective."

The winner of the Top Pick award goes to the Reebok Nano 2.0. "This is Reebok's second attempt at designing a shoe worthy of taking the punishment that CrossFit workouts entail. When they were first released, they became popular quickly because of the combination of stability and comfort they provide. The main difference between the Nano 2.0 and the 3.0 is the 3.0's upper is now surrounded by rubber." Gear Editor, Jizrawi states.

The Best Buy award goes to the Reebok Nano Speeds. This award is presented to a product that balances top quality with a reasonable price. Jozrawi reports, "The Speeds have all of the great features we want at an exceptionally reasonable price.  They were designed as more of a minimalist running shoe yet modified to be able to handle the performance expected during intense CrossFit workouts."

This review also includes a helpful and informative buying advice article covering design, fit, style and activity levels. You will find it here: How to Choose the Best Shoe for CrossFit Training.
