NOBULL Drops a Limited Edition Shoe

Paint by CrossFit.

If you’ve ever done Murph and looked down to see a puddle of sweat piling up all around, you know that fitness can get a little messy. Imagine for a second those drops were paint instead of sweat and the floor was a canvas. What would it look like when you were all done with the WOD?

Hmmm good question.

Enter Kent Youngstrom, who experimented with that concept last year creating some wonderfully expressive, CrossFit-inspired artwork. NOBULL noticed and said “we like” and invited Kent over for a little collab session with Kristi Eramo, Sam Dancer, Brooke Ence, Brooke Wells, Alex Anderson and Jared Stevens.

So what happened?

Things got messy. As in paintball party, green, purple, red, yellow and orange all over their hair, clothes and skin kinda messy.

Each athlete picked a few of their favorite CrossFit movements (think burpees, kettlebell swings, power cleans, etc.), applied paint to a body part or piece of equipment and started to move, creating a unique design out of their workout. Kent and NOBULL took those canvases and created six uniquely designed NOBULL trainers, one for each athlete.

That’s legit. How do I snag one?


A few of the athletes are heading out to London, England to WIT Fitness for a sold out launch party, WOD and Q&A.  The WOD is at 9:00 PM Pacific/5:00 AM GMT tomorrow to and the Q&A is 11:30 AM Pacific/7:30 PM GMT and you can them both live on their Facebook page.

All six trainers go on sale tonight at 9:00 PM Pacific/5:00 AM GMT for pre-order, and here’s where you can buy them if you’re in the U.S. and if you’re in the EU. Also available to buy will be a replica print of each athlete’s canvas just in case your wall is feeling lonely.

If you’re feeling particularly impatient you can checkout all the designs and watch the complete video behind these limited edition sneaks.
