Nike is preparing to launch the Metcon 1 OG Road to Metcon X “Banned,” a special edition sneaker. This release pays tribute to the evolution of the Metcon line, highly regarded by athletes and fitness enthusiasts for its performance.

The Metcon 1 OG Road to Metcon X “Banned” showcases a striking black and red colorway, echoing the iconic “Banned” theme from Nike’s basketball heritage. Constructed with durable materials, including a robust mesh upper and reinforced overlays, the sneaker is designed to endure intense training sessions.

Performance remains a focal point, with features like a stable heel and flat sole providing maximum ground contact and stability during heavy lifts and squats. The forefoot includes a sticky rubber compound to enhance traction and grip, which is especially useful for dynamic movements and agility drills.

The Nike Metcon 1 OG Road to Metcon X “Banned” is set to launch via Nike‘s official site on August 2, with a retail price of $150 USD.
