Updated To Add Reebok Nano 3.0 To Best Women’s Shoes For CrossFit:
Reebok Crossfit Nano 3.0 Womens is an incredible new shoe. The best endorsement that we can give the shoe is that Rich Froning gave up his Olys and moved over to the Nano family. The shoes are new on the market, but with input from the best in CrossFit…we know these will be a must have shoe. Once we get more data we will update this with our impressions.
Best Women’s Shoes For CrossFit:
Reebok Womens Crossfit Nano 2.0 : so many of the best women CrossFit athletes use the Reebok Nano 2.0 in competitions. This is the go-to shoe for many women athletes. It is light, breathable and provides that naked support. The shoe offers a comfortable low-profile, it is almost like wearing a soccer cleat, better yet an in-door soccer shoe. What makes the Reebok Women’s CrossFit Nano 2.0 a contender for the best women’s shoes for CrossFit is the flexibility that this shoe offers. Not only flexibility for your feet, but flexibility for the exercises and movements that you can do in this shoe. For example, the flat profile for this shoe is perfect for squats, jerks, and cleans. That is why we think this could be one of the best women’s shoes for CrossFit.
Inov-8 Bare-XF 210 Shoe the unisex shoe and one of the best CrossFit shoes for men. What we love about this shoe is the zero drop. The zero drop means that there is no difference between heel and toe. This creates a perfect balance between equipment and body. These shoes are extremely flexible and are proven winners. I cannot think of a better shoe for rope work. The Inov-8 Bare-XF 210 Shoe is an ideal CrossFit shoe for both men and women. They come in tons of colors, and if you are not too worried about what color your shoe is, you can pick these shoes up at a crazy reduced price. Great value.
Inov-8 F-lite 195 Shoe this is my favorite for the best CrossFit shoe period. This is wearable technology. The fit is so extreme in this shoe you do not have to wear socks. This has a 3mm drop, which differs from the shoe above. This is a great trainer for those who are seeking on going barefoot one day. The design of the shoe is to be flexible while holding your toes in place. This gets our vote for the best CrossFit shoe for women. Yet, you ask for more reasons to bestow the honor on this shoe, fine: the midsole is created to function as one piece of material that makes it lightweight, protective and an effective shock-absorber. A perfect CrossFit shoe.
Inov-8 F-lite 240 Shoe I know what you are wondering, are we in the pocket of Inov? No, we have never met anyone from this company. Yet, we have met legions and legions of CrossFitters who sing the praises of this company’s shoes. This one offers a 6mm differential, the biggest one of the bunch. This one also has the most traction for road-workouts. For some, the no-sock/barefoot feel of the other two is too intense. This is a great shoe that gives you a lightweight comfortable shoe while giving you the traditional feeling of a “normal” shoe. Yet, there is nothing normal about this shoe. Allow me to share the TPU feature on this shoe. When you need to push yourself and abandon safety and go uber-aggressive to win…this shoe has your back. The TPU offers you forefoot protection so that you don’t crack your foot too bad as you set your personal best time. This shoe is one of the best women’s shoes for CrossFit.
New Balance Women’s Minimus WX20v1 Training Shoe at Bravefury, we are very intrigued by this shoe. It appears to be a contender for the best women’s shoes for CrossFit, because of the price. Yet, this shoe offers a 4 mm drop, which can cost you almost 3 times in the INOV shoes above depending on style and size of shoe. It also offers odor resistance, which is huge when you store your shoes in your car during the day while you are at work. This is a shoe we are going to get to know more about, but people swear by them.
