The successor of the Reebok Nano 9, the newest Nano model — the Nano X — is already described as an improvement from previous models. It notably features advanced lace-up technology and several redesigned components for enhanced performance. A potentially strong training shoe option, the Reebok Nano X will especially be one to consider for hitting the gym, lifting some weights, and a variety of other fitness activities! The midsole of the Nano X has been designed with high-density foam for absorbing shock, yet is reactive to each jump or bounding movement, moving with the trajectory of the foot. This makes it an ideal shoe for fitness classes, CrossFit workouts, and more! Also, the shoe's re-engineered upper is highly breathable and features a wide toe box to accommodate a variety of foot sizes comfortably. Its lacing system is also notably improved, with an internal lace-up method that limits overlap but still provides foot security. Lastly, the rubber outsole of the Nano X is particularly stable, providing a solid base for heavy lifting and a range of other training sessions. Some notable downsides of the Nano X include its particularly "clunky" design (it is the heaviest iteration of the Nano line to date, with its increased lip on the heel), as well as its lack of tread/grip when running. Of course, while the Nano X can be used as an occasional running shoe, it's primarily designed with gym workouts in mind. Also, let's note that some athletes found the platform a bit rigid, especially in the area around the toes (and despite the spacious shape of the toe box). Overall, we give this shoe a good rating of 9 for its comfort and stability during training sessions.
