Yesterday I put the latest innovation from Nike to the test during a high-intensity CrossFit-inspired workout led by Dhani Oks, owner of Academy of Lions. The Nike Free 1.0 Cross Bionic shoe is the brand’s first Free 1.0, and this barefoot-like shoe is all about stability. The upper uses Nike Flywire technology to keep your foot snug and in place while doing dynamic movements like lateral box jumps.
Since the support in this show is designed for lateral movement and there’s little cushioning, it’s not a shoe you’d want to run in but it is perfect for the weight room or CrossFit gym. (Nike, $120)
