Hypebeasts and sneaker heads get ready, because we’re getting our first glimpses of Reebok’s newest cross training shoe the Reebok CrossFit Nano 8.0. Last year, we had photos and first looks of the Reebok Nano 7.0 in mid-December. This was due to the shoe “accidentally” and temporarily being posted on CrossFit’s online store.
Apparently, someone anonymously sent what appear to be the Nano 8.0s shoes to Joel at As Many Reviews As Possible (no word yet on if this is the completely finalized design). Within his post, he included pictures of the new Nano 8.0 sporting a modest black and gum colorway, along with a few of the shoe’s specs (from what he noted).
In his Instagram post’s description he writes, “Apparently black&gum is will be the marquee colorway, midsole looks black AF, and based off what people have been telling me, will really have a much more flexible midsole/outsole. Launches in Jan according to sources. All even number Nanos are hits, so I’ll bank on the 8 to be good as well.”
He also notes that the shoes initially look similar to the Reebok Nano 7.0, but offers a few differences. From what he notes, these differences include,
- Thicker weaves that from heel to toe, as opposed to side to side.
- Nanoshell appears to have changed to a solid color.
- Reflective-esque weave appearance.
- The heel cup has changed from the Nano 7.0.
- Have been suggested to be a little more flexible.
Keep in mind, these are only a few of the characteristics he’s noted without trying them, and official specs have yet to be released. Check out an up close photo of the heel below.
As we’ve seen in the past, the fall and winter months are notorious for the release of new training shoes, whether it be cross training or lifting. And along with these releases comes the availability of new photos to build hype around the upcoming models.
There’s still no official word on color schemes, or release dates for the Nano 8.0. What do you think of the new Nano? Are they a hit or miss?
