Reebok Discontinued The Lite TR in January, 2017
The Reebok Lite TR is the only high top shoe we tested in this review (it is also available in a low top version, the Lite Lo TR. Our testers did not like using this shoe for Olympic lifts because the lack of ankle mobility made it difficult to drop into a stable squat. The Nike Metcon 4 - Women's was preferred over this model for heavy lifts due to its increased range of motion. While the high top design is a limitation for Olympic lifts, the added protection on rope climbs was great. If you are struggling to learn how to hook your feet on the rope, these grippy shoes might give you the confidence you need. Overall, this shoe is far too specialized to be a good choice as an all-purpose CrossFit shoe. A better option as a general CrossFit shoe is our Best Buy winner, the Reebok Nano 2.0 - Women's. While there are a few movements that the Lite TR can do really well, the Nano 2.0 can do everything you need it to in a CrossFit gym.
