Metcon 4

11.2 oz. (318 gr.)

Heel Drop

List Price
130 US$


The Nike Metcon 4 is best for all-around lifting. The shoe has a flat, sticky bottom and a 4mm heel offset. It is sturdy, grounded, and provides solid ankle stability. You may notice the shoe is harder than previous models, which is good for heavy lifts.

The midsole is removable and provides the bare minimum of cushioning and shock absorption — which is what you need when weightlifting. It has a lower profile to keep your feet flat on the ground and offer better stability for lifting heavy weights.

On the outsole, you will find a tri-star tread pattern to grip the floor surface. The forefoot is sticky to aid in pushing exercises. In the medial and lateral part of the outsole, you will notice grippy rubber to help during rope climbs. The rubber is also in the heel clip to further steady your movements when moving side to side.

The upper is made of mesh with vertical fibers so the shoe is both breathable and flexible. Haptic technology is located on the upper, which is 3D-printed tri-star patterns that protect the mesh during rope climbing. There is also a guard in the toe area for more protection. The shoe has a lace-up closure with six sets of eyelets. The rear section of the shoe has a TPU heel counter that has a carved-out design, which keeps your feet from moving during lifts.

Who is it for?

The Nike Metcon 4 are for those who want a serious weightlifting shoe that offers a sticky bottom and the ability to keep you grounded. This shoe has a lock-down feel, is breathable, and has a low profile to make it an overall comfortable shoe.
