Rich Froning’s Reebok CrossFit Compete Shoe Is Now Available For Pre-Order


The 4x CrossFit Games champion’s own shoe line is here, and not everyone’s too excited about it.

Reebok’s CrossFit Compete, which hopes to give Nike’s MetCon 1 line a run for its money, is out now for pre-order. There’s one catch though: it’s priced at $194.95, a significant difference from MetCon’s $119.95 price tag. On Reddit, people have already expressed dismay at the hefty price the Compete carries. After all, why buy something at nearly $195 when you can have kicks from Nike at a much cheaper price?

The company, however, justifies its $195 shoe with excellent performance, stating: “…the Compete features an all new Compete Last with removal of the sockliner, creating a next-to-skin feel and response that’s beyond compare. You’ll get unparalleled protection from the new, innovative 360º CombatCage Kevlar protection tech, as well as the Duragrip toe for abrasion.”

What do you think? Will you be pre-ordering the Compete or will you be waiting for new stocks of the MetCon?
