What does NOBULL Stand for?

So, what is the meaning of the abbreviation NOBULL? It stands for No BULLSH*T and “100% truthful; not kidding”.

NOBULL encapsulates the company’s commitment to doing the simple things well. No fluff, No Bull. This is echoed by their slogan “NOBULL – Just the Horns”.

Born from the Functional Fitness/CrossFit® scene, in 2021 NOBULL became the new title sponsor of the CrossFit Games®, further demonstrating their strong commitment to health and fitness and athletes all around the world.

What is the NOBULL Project?

Because NOBULL is a footwear, apparel and accessory brand for people who train hard and don’t believe in excuses, their project is a continuation of these ideals.

Their events, movies, athlete seminars and even art events are branched under the wider NOBULL Project umbrella.

The NOBULL Project encompasses all the principles of the company and the athletes that make up their team.

This is a distinguished roster including Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr, Katrin Davidsdottir and Sam Dancer amongst many others.

The material is uniquely breathable, keeping your feet cool and comfortable throughout any workout.

SuperFabric® guard plates are applied to a highly flexible, lightweight mesh base layer, giving you 360 degrees of protection AND freedom of movement.

The high-cut collar provides padding and a secure fit for movement in any direction. I found this to be supportive yet still effective for working out. It seems unusual at first to workout in high tops, but the added ankle support became useful after I got used to it.

The outsole lug pattern on the Trainer was designed for multi-environment usage, allowing for an easy transition between inside and outside with the right blend of flexibility, traction and support.

High carbon lateral and medial guards are included for added protection on sidewalls, and a reflective NOBULL logo provides added visibility and style.

Are NOBULL Shoes Good?

The simple answer is yes. They are durable, stylish, well-designed and excellent for all facets of fitness.

Are NOBULL Shoes worth the Money?

They not only provide incredible support for training but are also very comfortable.

NOBULL Shoes have a reputation for being expensive but in my opinion they justify the price. In comparison, they price in at a very similar rate to the latest Reebok and Nike Cross Training shoes.

The shoes are made of high-quality materials and have impeccable construction, so you won’t need to replace them any time soon.

We believe the NOBULL shoes are worth every cent!
