July 17, 2019 - The road to gold isn’t pretty. And every year, the competition gets tougher — athletes have to train more and fight harder than ever before. But the top of the podium is worth the calloused hands and trembling muscles.
The special-edition “Medal Strong” Metcon 5 honors this gritty journey. The hazy black upper appears distressed, as though it has been broken in and sweated on. Pops of gold for men and rose gold for women at the heel represent how naturally-occurring metallic gold comes out of the ground: not yet polished, but still valuable.
The Nike Metcon 5 “Medal Strong” will appear on the competition floor in August. It releases July 22 for NikePlus members and globally July 25.

March 28, 2016 - Last year Nike released the Air Max Zero, Tinker Hatfield's original Air Max design, which eventually became the Nike Air Max 1. Though the idea for the shoe was put to paper 29 years ago, its first real-life manifestation incorporated nearly three decades of Nike Air innovation. It may not have been the first Nike Air Max, but without it, the Nike Air Max 1 would not exist.
