Best Budget Training Shoes

 If you want to perform well in a work outsometimes you need to invest in the right type of shoes. And both nike and reebok are working hardto get your money with their Metcon 3 and Nano 7. But whether because you just don't like themetcon 3 or nano 7 or just want to save some money, both companies still have you coveredwith their slightly more affordable options. Nike has their Repper DSX and Reebok has theirCrossfit Speed TR. So lets see which you should get. So, the nike metcon Repper DSX retail forone hundred bucks and come in 4 different color ways. The Reebok Crossfit Speed TR retails for $99.99and now comes in 6 color ways. Its a safe bet to say that more color waysfor each shoe will continue to drop here and there. As always, I’ll have links in the descriptionbelow if you want to pick either one of these up. I’ve reviewed both of these crossfit shoesalready, but heres a quick run down of each. Both the Nike Metcon Repper DSX and ReebokCrossfit Speed TR have mesh uppers. The mesh upper on the Repper DSX is a littlethicker and not as tight as the mesh upper on the Speed TR. But over all, the Upper on the Repper DSXis more durable than the upper on the Speed TR. Built into the mesh upper of the Metcon RepperDSX is Nike’s Fly wire system. and as always, the fly wire system reallyhelps with compression and lock down when you tighten your laces. You get much better lock down in the NikeMetcon Repper DSX than in the Reebok Crossfit Speed TR. One Benefit the Crossfit Speed TR has overthe Repper DSX is its padded tongue. Although you can get a lot of compressionand lock down from the fly wire system on the Repper DSX, it dosnt matter if theresa lot of pressure and discomfort on the instep of your foot due the Repper’s paper thintongue. These shoes also have very different soleson them. for starters the sole on the nike metcon RepperDSX is derived from the nike metcon 2. they have been slightly redesigned with flexgrooves in the forefoot area for flexibly. traction is ok, but no where near as goodas the traction on the reebok crossfit speed tr. the outsole on the speed tr is basicallydesigned to give you the most traction possible. both of these outsoles are also designed tohelp give you traction when rope climbing as well. but the rope pro on the speed tr is so smallit really dosnt help at all. where as the outsole on the metcon RepperDSX gives you all the traction your heart desires when rope climbing. both of these shoes also have flared out heelsfor stability when lifting and they both feel identical. One feature that sets the two shoes apartis the TPU heel clip found on the Speed TR and not on the Repper DSX. which is a littleironic cause the Metcon 2 and 3 have heel clips while the Nano 6.0 and 7 don’t. andif you didnt know, the TPU heel clip allow your heels to glide on a wall when you’redoing hand standing wall push ups. concerning fit, the Metcon Repper DSX aretrue to size while the Reebok crossfit speed tr does tend to fit a little big. So going down half a size is a good idea. working out in either of these shoes feelvery different. The Reebok Crossfit Speed TR are really goodfor WODS that call for a lot of sprints, and runs. they give you a lot of traction and padding. some might even say too much traction. The Nike Metcon Repper DSX on the other handhandles both sprints and moderate weight lifting fairly well. like i said in my initial review, these shoesreally don't have preference when it comes to working out. Over all for $100 bucks both the Reebok CrossfitSpeed TR and Nike Metcon Repper DSX are both solid options. As the name implies, the Reebok Crossfit SpeedTR are better suited for WODs or circuit training that involve a lot of speed drills. One bonus the Speed TR has over the RepperDSX is that heel clip, so if you do a lot of wall hand standing push ups these willcome in handy. The Nike Metcon Repper DSX on the other handare much more well rounded. I even like them better than the metcon 3and nano 7. these shoes have no problem going from sprints to weight lifting and back. If you do decide to pick these up you'll befine going true to size.
