No Bull. These are the BEST CrossFit shoes EVER.
See what I did there? NOBULL Project is a footwear and apparel brand who is making some serious headway in the CrossFit and fitness industry. The have a variety of products available, but are really known for their shoes. They have signed some bad ass athletes to their team like Brooke Ence (my girl!), Brooke Wells, Sam Dancer, Alex Anderson and Jared Stevens.
I learned about these shoes watching Brooke’s YouTube Channel. She was one of the first Athletes to sign with them, and I just love this chick. She’s hilarious, works hard, and seems just like a GENUINE good person. She’s also a bad ass athlete, so I knew any brands she signed on with, had to be LEGIT.
I took the plunge last Fall, and purchased a pair of the NoBull Trainers. I bought the Matte Black Trainers, which have since sold out. They were all black and I absolutely loved them. I am kind of obsessed with black… rarely will you find a day where I’m not wearing something black. My husband teases me relentlessly for having no color in my wardrobe.
I wore these trainers for a good amount of time, alternating with my Nike Metcons. I immediately loved how the Nobull’s fit…they had no break in time, were comfortable right away, and felt like some type of hybrid between the Reebok Nano, and the Nike Metcon… They had the structural support of the Metcon, but were more wearable, similar to the Nano (at least the older Nano’s from my experience.).
Unfortunately, one day I had a box jump slip up and a corner of the trainer ripped. I seriously do not know how this happened, because these shoes are pretty much bulletproof. It really was a freak occurrence, because I definitely put these to the test… and they held up phenomenally.
I emailed Nobull to let them know, and they immediately offered to replace them. I wasn’t really looking for anything, more just trying to provide some feedback on a possible vulnerability in the design – but the customer service pretty much insisted.
Since the Matte Black was Sold Out, I replaced my trainer with the Floral Gum Trainer – which might be the cutest (haha) shoe I have ever owned. I love the grey and navy design. I even like the gum bottom, which is not normally a style I would go for.

They come at a slightly higher price tag than some trainers, but I really believe it’s because they work for everything. I feel great running in these, squatting in them, and even Olympic Lifting in them. I own lifting shoes, but at this point, I almost prefer my Nobull’s! They really are that great.
The Nobull trainers fit true to size. If you wear a 7.5 in Nike – you will wear the same size in the Nobull trainer. They have plenty of room in the toe box, and fit an average heel perfectly. I have a normal arch, and as I said, I felt like these needed no break in time.The trainers come in a simple box (hence no BS) and with an extra pair of laces.
I truly feel like you should wear whatever you are most comfortable in – and for me… that is the Nobull trainer. I absolutely recommend the Nobull trainer – if you are looking for a good all around CrossFit shoe, or if you haven’t quite found the perfect fit with the Nike, or Reebok’s.
