Nike-backed athlete Mat Fraser captured his third-straight CrossFit Games title over the weekend, and to celebrate, the Swoosh gave the Fittest Man on Earth a gold iteration of its shoe built for the sport.
After his win in Madison, Wisconsin, Fraser posed on his personal Instagram account with the Nike Metcon 4, executed in black and gold. The two colors take up equal space on the upper, and the midsole and outsole is black with gold speckles. The look also boasts a metallic gold handstand heel slip.
However, while fans of Fraser and CrossFit will undoubtedly want to buy a pair of this version, they won’t be able to do so. Nike confirmed this specific sneaker was a gift to Fraser and will not be for sale.
But other colorways of the Nike Metcon 4 for men and women are available now for $130 via Nike.com. The shoe features Flywire cables for lightweight support, a soft tongue for cushioning between the laces and forefoot, mesh on the heel and ankle for breathability and textured rubber at the mid-foot for rope exercise durability.
