The latest version of Nike’s toughest training shoe plays off tactical weight vests, which the fittest of the fit wear to help maximize effort while they run, pull-up, push-up, air squat and more.
Each pair comes with at least five patches inspired by military nostalgia, but with a Nike twist (like a feisty bee from an old fighter jet reaching for a kettlebell or a tornado lifting weights.)
Attachable by VELCRO® brand fastener, the patches can be applied to the shoe’s tongue and back-half of the upper. Athletes can stand out on the rubber floor or the street by adding patches from their gym, vest or favorite athlete to the mix.
The 4 XD boasts all the brawn of the Metcon 4 plus a new dense pattern of strategically zoned haptic print (inspired by barbell knurling) that helps to further enhance durability across the mid and forefoot.
Nike will launch the Metcon 4 XD Patches in Special Field System colors. For men the color options include tan, army green and triple black. Dusty pink, lavender and grey are the color options for women.
The collection will launch on the 3rd of May with each color packaged with a “slightly different mix of patches, and the patches are not sold separately”. Hit Nike.com for availability.
