Another Look At The New Nike Metcon 3
This photo is so far the best example of how the upper on the Metcon 3 will be different than the upper on the original Metcons or the Metcon 2s. It looks like the upper will be lighter and more flexible, at least in the toebox. The added structural support in the ankle area is a curious addition, and I'm interested to see exactly why Nike decided to include that in the design.
One of the biggest improvements from the original Metcon to the Metcon 2s was the heel cup and fit. The new version seems to keep that positive evolution going with a heel cup and support similar to the Metcon 2. As always, take these leaks with a grain of salt as final production shoes could have some differences from prototypes. The Nike Metcon 3s will likely be out in early 2017.
