The new for 2022 Reebok Nano X2 is available April 1st.

Let’s look at all the different versions of the Reebok Nano X CrossFit Shoe from Reebok.

This shoe has been out for a couple of months, and there are some different versions.

Here’s an example, this is the Reebok Nano X Unknown.

Reebok Nano X Unknown - Side Profile
The Nano X Unknown is the lightest version of the Nano X – because the upper is thin, very thin. There’s no heel cup in the heel either.

It’s a light-weight, mid-cut version of the Nano X.

What’s the key differences between each version?

That’s what we’re going to look at in-depth.

Here’s all the different versions of the Reebok Nano X that we are going to compare and contrast in this article:

Nano X iO Training Shoes (Chalk/Carotene/Black) Show some style , and maybe get some double takes with this "inside out" shoe from Reebok.
Reebok Wonder Woman Nano (Horizon Blue / Primal Red / Gold Met.) Reebok teamed up with Warner Brothers studios to deliver a Nano X that's inspired by the Wonder Woman costume and comics. Built for all the ways you move, these training shoes pack enough cushioning for high-impact exercises and provide a stable base of support for lifting moves. Wonder Woman graphics will make you feel like a superhero.
Nano X PR (White / Pure Grey 2 / Silver Met.) The newest version of the Reebok Nano X is made with lightweight materials that help you get an extra rep or PR (But it actually weighs the same as the regular Nano!) Rogue Fitness is also selling the Nano X PR - but for $10 cheaper than Reebok! Get it while it lasts...
Reebok Nano X Unknown (Pure Grey 5 / Black / White) With these men's mid-cut shoes you'll be ready. The textile upper and high collar provide extra coverage and support. Added midsole cushioning and a decoupled outsole make them more comfortable than ever before. This is the colorway shown in most of these photos.
Nano X Froning (Men's - Black / White / Reebok Lee 7) Known as The Fittest Man in History, Rich Froning Jr., joins the Nano franchise with these men's shoes. They were designed to fulfill all the needs of an elite athlete. Coming July 21st - these WILL SELL OUT!
Reebok Nano X (Cool Shadow/Black/White) Men's Training Shoe in Cool Shadow/Black/White.
Vertex Micro Crew Ultra-Light Cushion (Darn Tough) You know what kind of sock works best with a lightly cushioned cross trainer like the Nano X? Get a running or athletic sock with some padding in the heel and forefoot - like these from Darn Tough. Merino wool/Nylon/Lycra Spandex - made in the USA

Let’s compare and contrast – and find out all about the different versions of the Reebok Nano X.

Reebok Nano X – Regular Edition

Here’s the basic version of the Reebok Nano X.

This is the 10th version of Reebok’s CrossFit training shoe.

Reebok Nano X
Reebok Nano X – What’s new and different?

It no longer has the CrossFit label on the shoe, as the marketing agreement has expired.

Reebok Nano X - Closeup Heel View
Reebok Nano X – a great shoe for CrossFit – even if it’s no longer printed on the heel.

But, it’s the same basic shoe you know and love.

They’ve iterated on this design now for many years – so it’s pretty darn good.

Reebok Nano X Flexweave
The Flexweave in the Nano X is a good material – it’s tough and good lucking – and makes for a comfortable upper as well. This is a dual layer material – there is an inner mesh as well.

One of our favorite features is the ultra-wide toe box – there’s nothing else like it on the market.

Reebok Nano X
Weighing in at 14 ounces per shoe (Men’s Size 11) and a 4mm heel to toe drop – these things are built like a tank. They are tough shoes.

Now, let’s look at the other versions that have since become available.

Reebok Nano X Froning

Rich Froning has his own official edition of the Reebok Nano X.

Reebok Nano X Froning - Side View
This is a Rich Froning special edition of the Nano.

There are two colorways available.

The upper is different than the regular shoe, it uses a fancier material – and premium laces.

The Nano X Froning has a completely different upper from the regular.

There’s also an elastic strap to help secure the laces – Rich is famous for using his Nanos untied!

Reebok Nano X Froning
Nano X Froning – a nice looking special edition. The forefoot strap is more for appearance than function – you can’t make it as tight as the strap on a weightlifting shoe.

But, these are the heaviest of all the Nanos – clocking in at almost 1 full ounce heavier than the regular Nano.

They look good – but they don’t really operate any differently than the regular Nano.

Reebok Nano X Froning On Foot
Here it is on foot. Looks good, and fits and feels like the regular Nano X. But, it is the heaviest Nano to date.

Reebok Nano X PR

The Reebok Nano X PR is one of the more recent revisions of the Nano X.

THis is a nice looking shoe.

Reebok Nano X PR – The PR Is for "Personal Record"

It’s got a crisp, all-white color scheme.

The PR stands for “Personal Record” and due to the different materials in the upper, Reebok claims this to be lightweight.

Reebok Nano X PR Details
The upper is made from lighter weight materials than the regular, and it’s an all-white and light grey color scheme. It has fancy round laces too.

In reality, it weighs exactly the same as the regular Nano X, as we found in our hands on test.

It still looks good though.

Reebok Nano X PR Versus Regular Nano X
Shown here with the regular Nano, there’s not really any weight difference.

Reebok Nano X Unknown

Unlike the PR edition, this version of the Nano X is light-weight.

Reebok Nano X Unknown Side by Side
The Reebok Nano X Unknown is the lightest weight Nano X you can buy.

This is the Reebok Nano X Unknown – it’s a mid-cut version of the shoe.

It’s taller, but the upper is super light-weight and thin.

Reebok Nano X Unknown Side View
What’s the secret to the light weight? The upper is super thin – and there’s no internal heel cup.

It’s almost one full ounce lighter than a similar size Nano X (or Nano X PR).

This is a comfortable, good-looking shoe.

Reebok Nano X Unknown Heel View
I think this is my favorite version of the Nano X. The non-Flexweave upper is great.

But, despite being mid-cut – it doesn’t offer much of any ankle support. That upper is just too thin.

Otherwise it feels like a normal Nano X – it’s using the same outsole and midsole.

Reebok Nano X Unknown Outsole
Because it uses the same outsole and midsole as the regular shoe – performance is pretty much the same.

Reebok Wonder Woman Nano Training Shoe

Here’s a special edition shoe created with Warner Brothers.

Reebok Wonder Woman Nano Training Shoe Quarter View
Reebok teamed up with Warner Brothers to create this Wonder Woman styled Nano shoe. Other than the fancy comic book color scheme, it’s a regular Nano shoe.

As you can see, it has a comic book-inspired color theme.

Inspired by the Wonder Woman comic book, of course.

Otherwise, it’s just a standard Reebok Nano X.

The outsole of the Reebok Nano X is good – it’s flat and gives great traction thanks to the maximum contact area with the gym floor.

Reebok Nano X Io Training Shoe

Here’s one of the latest versions of the Reebok Nano X – The Io training shoe.

Reebok Nano Inside Out Training Shoe - Side Profile
As you can see from this side view, this is a Reebok Nano X – but one that is "Inside Out".

The IO stands for Inside Out

This shoe is all about pure visual appeal, as there are no performance differences from the standard Nano X.

Here you can see the interior tag is on the heel.

Reebok Nano X Differences – In Summary

That’s our review of the many different versions of the Reebok Nano X from Reebok.

Some versions are special colors, some have special features, but all feature the same basic performance characteristics of the Reebok Nano X.

Overall, the Reebok Nano X is a great CrossFit shoe with a nice, wide fit – it’s a great shoe for the WOD.

Just be sure to pick a version that looks good to you.
