Reebok to Release Nano X2 Froning Cross Trainers on Nov. 3, 2022

Four-time Fittest Man on Earth® Rich Froning's namesake training shoe has a second generation.

The second generation of the Reebok Nano X2 Froning has arrived. The latest edition of the cross trainers that bear the name of four-time Fittest Man on Earth® Rich Froning is the lightest Nano X2 offering to date at just 10.4 ounces (for a unisex size nine). And the “stripped-down” design potentially amplifies its efficacy on the competition floor.

Per the press release, the Nano X2 Froning’s “reinforced breathable open-mesh upper with perforated details make [them] competition ready, removing unnecessary details.” Additionally, the latest design includes a “Floatride Energy Foam Drop-In” to add responsiveness and support to the forefoot.

The Reebok Nano X2 Froning cross trainers will be available on Nov. 3, 2022, on Reebok.com/NanoX2 and select retailers worldwide in unisex sizing for $150. Two colorways will be available: “Core Black / Pure Grey / Neon Cherry and Ftwr White / Neon Blue / Neon Cherry.”
