Reebok has announced the launch of a new limited edition crossfit trainer in collaboration with 4 time CrossFit Games champ Rich Froning. The Reebok CrossFit Compete 6:14 takes its name from Rich Fronings ‘Galatians 6:14’ tattoo that runs up the side of his torso.
Apparently the shoe was created by Rich himself with help from Reebok, described as a lightweight shoe made from kevlar, the super strong and durable material used in ballistic vests. The CrossFit trainer has a flexible forefoot and a solid heel making it great for lifting and in Froning’s own words ‘pretty much anything’.
The announcement and release date come at an interesting time, coinciding with the launch of Nike’s recent foray into the CrossFit shoe market with the Nike Metcon 1. Nike’s entrance into the CrossFit market must be a big concern for Reebok who up until now have been pretty much synonymous with the sport.
