For the cross-training athlete, 2012 was a good, if not, great year. So, if you missed any awesome releases this year, here’s your chance to check them out as we recap the best cross-training of the year.
Nike has done well with the Free line and the Nike Free Haven 3.0 was a good addition. Supremely lightweight to train at supernatural speed, it was great for cross-training. Shield technology on the upper made this one good for all kinds of weather with a water-resistant layer of protection.
Under Armour is becoming more and more of a player in the athletic footwear and apparel realm and their Micro G Defend was a true contender for them. Strong stability and support made this one good to keep you going on and off the field and its foot forming foam footbed gave the wearer a locked-in fit.
For CrossFitters, Reebok introduced their second iteration of the CrossFit Nano specially designed for athletes of the intense workout sport. With an upper built for both support and ventilation, it hung tough and kept you cool during your workout.
For all-around working out, the Nike Lunar TR1 was a perfect choice. You know Nike is all about cutting edge technology, so they pumped it up with Flywire and a Lunarlon midsole for a personalized secure fit and superior cushioning.
