A few sites recently made mention of Nike’s upcoming Metcon 2 release. We can neither confirm nor deny these posts, but we know how much functional fitness freaks love their shoes, so we figured we’d pass along what we’ve seen floating around. If these are in fact the next edition of the Metcon, would you buy them?
Mat Fraser made mention of the next series of Nike’s functional fitness shoes back in February…
Everyone is all Metcon1 and I'm over here testing out the MetCon2s…

Less a distinct departure than a subtly tweaked update, the Nike Metcon 2 boasts a similar silhouette to the original, but revamps the Hyperfuse-and-synthetic construction into a more seamless, almost single-piece build, rather than the more “split” design. The sole is largely retained as well, but this time out what appears to be a visible Air-Sole cushions in the heel, upgrading the looks and the impact-protection a bit. Alternately — photos aren’t quite demonstrative enough — that may be an insert embedded into the heel, which would indicate something besides reworked cushioning.
There’s no word yet on a Nike Metcon 2 release date, but late-2015 or early-2016 is likely at the moment.
Not set to come out for sometime, but these were recently leaked as being the Nike Metcon 2’s. Can anyone confirm?
