Nike’s Metcon 4 shoes are ideal for cross training and weightlifting by providing a strong, stable base, flexible support, and extreme durability for a wide range of training activities. A new textured mesh makes it stronger, lighter, and more durable than previous Metcons.
So what’s the story with this “Invictus” edition with its awesome green colorway? Invictus (which means “unconquered” in Latin) is a San Diego-based gym known for accessible and exceptional functional fitness training for all levels. Since 2015, Nike and Invictus have partnered to create a special colorway of every edition of the Nike Metcon to date.
The design details of the new Nike Metcon 4 Invictus embody the box’s ethos — particularly the shoe’s tongue, which features their mantra (the famous Invictus poem by William Ernest Henley) that speaks to the strong character needed to overcome obstacles. Additionally, the primarily white-with-green-accents colorway is a nod to the “sea of green” Invictus fans are known for creating in the stands with their fan gear and “V” graphics from the gym’s logo appear on the upper.
