Nano 9 Features
Reebok has largely iterated on the success of the Nano 8 with their redesigned Reebok Nano 9. An animated guide on their website walks you through the new features:
The Reebok Nano 9 will feature an all-new Flexweave upper to replace the original innovative material in the Nano 8.
Compared to the original durable outsole of the Nano 8, the Reebok Nano 9 will include a new midsole protection wrap for shoe durability.
The Reebok Nano 8 featured a dual-density mid-sole. Reebok iterates on this with the Reebok Nano 9, adding midsole cushioning for running. Historically, CrossFit shoes have struggled with their flexibility for running. Read our review of the current top CrossFit shoes.
