CrossFit Shoe Gone Good | The RealFlex Transition 2.0 Review

RealFlex Transition 2.0

If you are a CrossFitter than you’ve had the conversation with yourself about what shoe should you wear when you WOD.  Not sure what you’ve come up with but what I look for is support and comfort.  Without these two you wil have a crappy workout because you are going to be distracted by the pains in your feet.  As a CrossFit coach and affiliate owner I feel its my responsibility to let people  know when I’ve found a descent product.

 

If you look at the shoes above these are one of Reeboks newest cross training shoes. The RealFlex Transition 2.0‘s.  I wasn’t sure how’d I would feel using them and after a while just hanging out in them I was convinced this shoes was both supportive and comfortable.  After putting them on immediately they felt comfortable.  But as many of you know that doesn’t mean anything until you train in them.  My first metcon I tested these guys in was a running, box jump and double under WOD.  They totally passed the test for this type of a metcon.  In my opinion, if there is any olympic lifting I wouldn’t recommend this type of shoe.  If there is any olympic lifting in a metcon I still wouldn’t  recommend them.  For those type of WOD’s I’d stick to a minimalists.  There are many shoes options out there now that it can get pretty confusing on what you should wear.  It really all depends on what you’re doing and what you need in a shoe.  Overall, the RealFlex Transition 2.0 is an awesome shoe for metcons with non-olympmpic lifting and for just hanging out in.
