Now that you have found your shoes, it’s time to get some crossfit supplements to help you do even better!


  1. I recently got a pair of Reebok Nano 3.0 shoes after wearing the Inov-8 since I started crossfit a little more than a year ago. And I love them! They are much better than what I had before, even though I actually did like the Inov-8 too. There are some other people in my box who have also gotten the new Nano’s and everyone agrees they are great.

  2. I agree! You must get actual CrossFit shoes if you are a crossfitter. I thought it was all a marketing ploy and wouldn’t really matter. So for my first year of being in CF, I just wore regular running shoes. Then, I finally decided to get real crossfit shoes (Reebok Nano) and I couldn’t believe how much better they were for the workouts. The difference is clearly noticeable from day one. I will never do another WOD without official crossfit shoes ever again!

  3. What do you think about the Inov-8 range of Crossfit shoes? They seem to be all the rage now but I haven’t had a chance to try any of them yet.

  4. This is the best information and site for purchasing shoes for crossfit that I have found. Purchasing the nano 3 and lifter plus right now. Thanks!

  5. @Matt… Many of the athletes at our box wear Inov-8 shoes and they really like them. Personally I prefer the Reebok Nano line, but I don’t think you can really go wrong either way.

  6. After finding your site I finally got some real crossfit shoes and I am so glad I did. I can’t thank you enough. It is a major difference in my workouts. Oh and btw I got the inov8 f-lite. They are perfect.

  7. I finally got some authentic crossfit shoes after months and months of being the guy in the box with some old beat up running shoes I had for years. I agree with everyone above who says they are spectacular. Worth their weight in gold and then some!

  8. You’re right, you really don’t hear nearly as much about the new balance crossfit shoes or see many people wearing them at the box, but I absolutely love mine! I’ve tried both inov8 and nano in the past and they are great, but in my experience the new balance minimus are even better!

  9. I just got the nano 6 and they are awesome! I think they are the best crossfit shoes for women that I’ve ever seen. I would highly recommend them to all women. I’ve been doing crossfit since 2012 and have gone through a lot of shoes in that time. These are the best I’ve tried yet.
