Four-time CrossFit Games champion and "The Fittest Man in History" Rich Froning now has landed his own signature shoe. Froning's special edition model, called the Reebok Nano X Froning, is a tricked-out version of the brand's latest CrossFit-centric Nano X model. The kicks come in a new a black and white color combo, with a speckled gum outsole.

Other key features of the shoe that aren't included in the standard Nano X, which are one of MH associate fitness editor Brett Williams' favorite training models of the year, include a forefoot strap for increased stability. This strap also jokingly refers to Froning’s reputation for "rarely tying his shoes in the early days of his career," according to a press release announcing the drop. The shoes also have a three-string rope lacing system that represents the three pillars Froning credits with guiding his life –faith, family and fitness.

The shoe is a celebration of Froning's 10-year partnership with Reebok, according to the press release.

"I’m so proud of all the work that went into this franchise, and this shoe in particular. It’s a special feeling when you see your feedback and vision come to life in something like this,” he said in the statement.

The Reebok Nano X Froning drops on July 21, which is Froning’s birthday. The athlete teased the new model in a funny video featuring his kids—and an ill-fated birthday cake—which he posted on YouTube and Instagram.

You can celebrate Froning's birthday (and get yourself a killer pair of trainers) on July 21 on Reebok.com or Froning's CrossFit Mayhem page for $150.
