I do hate about 80% of what Crossfit has become...I won't buy them for the fact the say Crossfit.. And it is a little lame they basically copied a Chuck.. Why not redesign a new shoe from the ground up...This move on Reebok was just to keep riding the Crossfit bandwagon as long as they can. It makes them big money. Including Mark Bell was kind of Cool, but isn't Crossfit a jack of all trades of training.. Why buy a shoe that looks to be geared towards a small part of crossfit. Go run or sprint in those. I bet they suck for that. So if your WOD has you doing Sprints and Deadlifts or Squats... Are you going to change shoes between them? Reeboks other Crossfit shoe seems like a better choice. Overall it's Reebok looking to score more dough of the Name Crossfit.

But if they didn't say Crossfit on them, I'd probably snatch a pair to try out.

Yes.










Crossfit is, as far as I know, up and coming, seen in a positive light (by most ), they want to sell shoes...so, yes.

The rubber sole wraps up around the sides for some nice squat action. I'd buy em if I can afford em.

If they're good, I'll wear them and get over the Crossfit tag. Fairly sure people can tell by looking at my physique that I'm more into PL (and Oreos) than CF
