Nike Romaleos 4 Weightlifting Shoe Photos Revealed, Release Date Postponed

The highly anticipated weightlifting shoe is likely to be released in September.

The release date of the new Nike Romaleos 4 weightlifting shoe, originally scheduled for April 1st, has reportedly been postponed.  This information comes via @nikemetconclub on Instagram, a fan account with over a hundred thousand followers that is the first to publish photos of the shoes. Nike seems to trust the account with exclusive product previews and Nike Metcon Club has been correct about news similar to this in the past.

The new date has not yet been specified, but currently the shoe is slated for release sometime in September. 

Speaking of which, despite the change in release date, images of the Nike Romaleos 4 have been released. You can view them below courtesy of the Nike Metcon Club Instagram page:

The “current circumstances” in the world is, of course, a reference to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that has caused mass quarantines, the cancelation or postponement of countless major events including the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, and the closures of many non-essential businesses. These businesses include Nike stores in “select countries,” which are closed from March 15-27.
