Nike’s CrossFit-friendly shoes, com­muter kit, gear that’ll help you stick to your diet and prod­ucts to keep your hair healthy

For the past few years Ree­bok has had a stran­gle­hold grip on CrossFit gear. And while Nike claims this new Met­con 1 shoe isn’t spe­cific to one sport, its CrossFit-friendly fea­tures cer­tainly make it look like an at­tempt to prise apart Ree­bok’s cal­lused fin­gers. A firm heel and small 40mm heel-to-toe make it sta­ble for Olympic lift­ing, while the Fly­wire in the outer locks down your foot dur­ing rapid move­ments – think burpee box jumps – so you’re less likely to roll your an­kle. It also has rub­ber lugs run­ning up ei­ther side of the mid-foot for greater trac­tion dur­ing rope climbs, a CrossFit work­out sta­ple. Late to the party? Yeah, but Nike’s made a spec­tac­u­lar en­trance. £ 100 nike.com
