In case you somehow missed it, it’s Cyber Monday! Be sure to check the sale roundup post for the last hurrah of the sale weekend!
The day has come. All my Nike metcon dreams have officially come true. Nike just released a metcon 2 with rose gold accents–or bronze, according to the official Nike name. No matter what you want to call it, they’re gorgeous and they came to live in my closet right away.
The shoes are almost all black with the exception of the metallic accents and a white sole. Although at first it seemed like white on the sole would be a bad idea, I actually think it’s better than white on the upper of the shoe. My reasoning is that the rubber sole will be easier to wipe clean than the fabric of the upper. At least, that’s what I’m hoping for!
The shoes also came with grey laces, but I honestly doubt that I will ever use them, since I like the all black look on top. The laces are a tad shorter than I’m used to, but still long enough to get the job done.
As usual with my metcons, I went with my normal shoe size (6.5) and they fit perfectly. I’ve been really happy with my other two pairs as a training shoe for lifting + crosstraining, so I don’t expect these will be any different!
By the way, the marble gym bag in this post is now 30% off at Carbon38! I’m betting it’ll sell out quickly, so if you’ve been eyeing this one, now is your chance! I love that it’s a nice middle size for when I don’t have too much to haul. And the marble print looks fabulous with everything. Here’s a full review of the bag if you want some more details.
