Nike Metcon 7 AMP Review

Nike recently dropped a hot new style of the M7 – we’ll review the Nike Metcon 7 AMP.

It is a shoe for all-around training, CrossFit, and functional fitness. NOTE: The AMP line of shoes doesn’t really enhance performance over the regular Nike M7 – it’s just fancier looking. You’ll pay a little bit more for the premium look – but the style might be worth it. We’ll let you be the judge of that. Get it now – from Road Runner Sports OR Rogue: Let’s take a look.
