I recently pre-ordered a pair of cross trainers by a company I discovered via Facebook, called NoBull. They’re based out of my home state, Massachusetts. I followed the facebook link, read about the crosstrainers on their website, and put in my preorder. A few weeks later (end of February) my shoes arrived. I ahd ordered the Grey Scuba trainers in a size 10. The shoes were well packaged, and came with an extra pair of laces. The shoes looked nice, a little lighter in color than what is shown on their website though. Let’s get in to performance. The outer shell of the shoe is definitely waterproof…ive so far stepped/ran into many puddles with these and no water penetration has yet to occur, yet they are extremely breathable. Usually when I wear shoes for an extended period of time my feet feel run down and really hot, and just uncomfortable in general. These crosstrainers are very breathable and provide a lot of comfort. They have a 4mm drop, which makes me feel more in contact with the ground. Doing short runs and sprints with these crosstrainers, I feel I have more initial liftoff, and I do not overly supinate. The rear or backstay of the shoe has great support for the achilles, its a nice snug fit not too tight, but not roomy either. Dealing with peroneal and achilles issues in the past, this shoe will definitely make you feel more secure, and protected. The toebox, has an odd shape to it, but it’s very roomy, for those with neuromas, or who don’t like their toes bunched together in the toebox, this setup is amazing. You have the room to wiggle our toes and extend them in and out, without any friction. The sole/heal of this shoe are very durable, for road running, at the track doing sprints, the sole should last for quite some time. Again, I wouldn’t recommend doing long runs, but for those doing some 1/4mile runs in between your box jumps and squat presses, you’re getting a quality sole. The insoles, pretty similar to anything you’d find in a competing brands shoe. If you’re not a fan of stock insoles, then change them for your custom orthotics etc etc. I noticed the print on the insoles wore off in a matter of a few wears. Break in time- not very long… my feet right away felt pretty good in them, and after using them a few times, maybe 2 or 3 training sessions, I feel they were broken in. I’d definitely recommend this crosstrainer to anyone looking for a quality crosstraining shoe with a low drop. For what these shoes cost, they are worth every penny and then some. Also to add in, their customer service responses are fairly quick. They’ve returned my messages and emails within 24 hours at all times.
