The CrossFit Games made the announcement this morning on their Instagram page: The Reebok CrossFit® Nano 7.0 is now available on Store.CrossFit.com for purchase starting at $129.99.

Two weeks ago we wrote about leaked photos of the Nano 7.0. They were shared on the CrossFit Store website featuring the “vitamin-C” themed shoe. Currently, the “vitamin-C” themed shoe we wrote about is the only color scheme available.

There are two other official color schemes that will be released in eight days, which would presumably be January 12th.

Also, if you look closely on the site there appears to be a fourth color scheme (redish, pink, and black), but the page isn’t available when clicked on.

The first official color scheme posted features shades of blue, black, white, and lead. Definitely one of the cooler color schemes we’ve seen thus far of the Nano 7.0.

The other color scheme features shades of gray, white, and black. This color scheme appears to be more simplistic with no color frills.

The features of the CrossFit Nano 7.0 are shared on Store.CrossFit.com and are below.

  • NanoWeave tech upper for breathability and comfort
  • Anatomical toe box and a low-cut design for a natural feel and ankle mobility
  • Ortholite sockliner for cushion
  • 360-degree TPU heel wrap for a locked-in feel
  • Crystallized rubber outsole flexes naturally for balance and stability
  • 4mm heel-to-toe drop

Two changes to note between the 6.0 and 7.0 are the NanoWeave and added heel piece. The NanoWeave is said to support the breathability of the shoe, which is a change from the previous Kevlar structure we see in some models of Nano.

The heel piece is said to create better stability in lifts.
