Christmas in August!!

I’ve recently ordered the Reebok CrossFit Lifter Plus and the Reebok CrossFit Nano U-form. After much conflicting veiws about weightlifting shoes, I decided to get a pair and try them out. As for the nanos? I just couldn’t resist. The classic Reebok CrossFit look was just imprinted all over them and I could not restrain.
I ordered Nano classics ( I’ll call them) in a 10.5 , gray and purple. I decided to half size down these because my first pair, the nano 3.0, were size 11 . I found that Reebok CrossFit does run a bit big, and 11 was kind of big. Turns out 10.5 is just perfect. After doing the whole blow dryer – U form activater thing, they were finally ready. While waiting for them to dry, I kept staring at them and honestly couldn’t decide whether I want to even workout in them! I may just want these to be as casual wear! Maybe I’ll just order another pair😜.
I contemplated on which color to get for my Reebok Lifter Pluses for a bit. I decided on the red and black ones, also in size 10.5. Even though I’ve yet to use these, I’ve heard many times that you want to order a bit smaller for weightlifting shoes because you want that nice, snug, secure fit. I listened to this and gave it a go. I think it works because it fits real tight but snug. Now, with the Lifter Plus, it also has U-Form technology. Thus I popped them in the oven as soon as I knew what I was doing. The U- Form may be a hassle to activate and be a burden to have to do just to wear your shoe, but it is there for a reason. Once pulled out of the oven, the U-form tab turns red. This allows you to wear the shoes for a small amount of time so that it molds to your foot. It’s pretty incredible and I believe it works well.
Can’t wait to do some Oly Lifts in these puppies!
