FREE FLEXIBILITY WITH METCON MUSCLE. The Nike Free Metcon 4 combines flexibility with stability to help you get the most out of your training program. Updated “chain-link” mesh cools and flexes as you speed through agility drills, while support at the midfoot and heel braces you for your heaviest sets in the weight room. Blast From the Past: The 4 is bringing back the super tough yet breathable mesh from the original version. The upper gets embellished with a Huarache-inspired strap and rubber-striped sidewall that envelops your heel to brace you for movement in any direction. Flexibility for Speed: Nike Free technology in the forefoot creates flexibility for agility moves and sprints. Stretch around the collar lets your foot move naturally as you burst, cut and brake. Stability for Strength: The wide heel creates a solid base for lifting. A softer foam core cushions your foot, while a firmer outer layer is durable and stable. Wide internal webbing distributes pressure around your midfoot for a comfortable yet locked-in feel during sudden stops and quick cuts. More Benefits: Rubberized logo at the tongue nods to the Huarache of the early ’90s. Rubber tread in high-wear areas gives you durable traction.
