On Friday, the Texas Longhorns received new customized Nike Metcon 3 workout shoes to coincide with the completion of the team’s new weight room, which was renovated over the summer:

Sophomore quarterback Shane Buechele also modeled the new kicks:

Nike bills the shoes as “durable and stable”:

The fully updated Nike Metcon 3 Men's Training Shoe is ready for your most demanding workouts—from wall exercises and rope climbs to sprinting and lifting.


An updated drop-in midsole is softer and more flexible in the forefoot—providing the versatility you need for running and cardio drills.


A flat platform and a firm-rubber heel give you the powerful stability you need for explosive lifting.


With embroidered reinforcement in high-wear areas, the Metcon 3 is tough enough for intense training and light enough to help you stay fast on your feet.


Flywire cables offer powerful lockdown

Mesh on the heel and ankle help keep you cool

Heel clip helps reduce drag during wall exercises

Sticky rubber in the forefoot provides powerful traction

Textured rubber wraps up the midfoot for durability during rope exercises

The team-issued Metcon 3 isn’t available in stores, but a few pairs could pop up at a future yard sale in the spring or on eBay.

If you’d like the purchase the same shoes the team works out in, the Metcon 3 is available on and at other retailers in various colorways for $130.
