Pros Incredibly comfortable, will tackle everything you find in a CrossFit workout, can wear outside of the gymGood shoe for lifting and a general CrossFit shoe, great for rope climbsExtremely versatile, durable, comfortable, good for runningVersatile, comfortable, light feelingComfortable cushioning, great style, lightweight
Cons Never wanting to take them off, fun patterns will cost you a little extra, sell out quicklyBreathability, squeaking noseUpper material bunches when tightly laced, heavyNot the best for really heavy liftsRun small and narrow, high collar back caused blistering, lack lateral support
Bottom Line The Trainers from NOBULL are super comfortable and were stellar performers during every test we put them throughPerforms well as a versatile shoe for CrossFit workouts; improvements made to the flexibility of the sole have reestablished it as a good all-around CrossFit shoeLong gone are the days of showing up to the gym with a bag full of specialized shoes; we love our new Editors' ChoiceYou won’t break the bank when you purchase this solid all purpose shoe for CrossFit; our reviewers preferred to workout in this shoe over quite a few of the more expensive optionsThe Nike Free series is known for running, but this shoe is a good option for cross-training
