Final Release Date Announced for the Reebok CrossFit® Nano 8

New shoes continue to drop as we progress into the holiday season. Earlier today, Reebok officially announced the final release dates and details for the Reebok CrossFit® Nano 8. This release is coming roughly eleven months after the Nano 7, which made its way to the market in early January 2017.

The official release date for the Nano 8 on is set for January 18th, and there will be limited Nano 8 pairs available at YourReebok starting at 6 A.M. EST on December 19th, which will run for a 24-hour period.

Launch colorways will be available on January 11th.

We first wrote about the Reebok Nano 8 back in September, and at the time we speculated about the shoe’s details. This version of the Nano is said to have Reebok’s Flexweave material, which is said to promote the shoe’s durability, breathability, and flexibility.

From Reebok’s announcement about the Nano 8, they write:

  • Ultimate Stability: Minimal drop outsole provides secure footing
  • Durable Comfort: Flexweave upper provides breathability, security and durability
  • Strong Foundation: Wide toe box for comfortable fit and powerful movements
  • Premium Wearability: New collar construction provides all day comfort

One noticeable difference to the construction of this Nano is the collar of the shoe and how it will fit the athlete. This version’s collar appears to be separate from the heel cup.

In addition to the construction changes of the shoe, this version of the Nano will offer shoes that can be customized, as well as configurations that have previously been designed by other CrossFit athletes.

As of right now, Reebok has said they’ll offer six customized shoes, which were designed by Dave Castro, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, Tia Clair-Toomey, Annie Thorisdottir, Dan Bailey, and Brent Fikowski.

We’re interested to see what the athlete-customized shoes will look like – and who has the best taste – along with which colorways will be revealed on January 11th.
