TYR Launches Limited Edition Pat Vellner CXT-1 Trainer

TYR has collaborated with CrossFit Games veteran and fan favorite, Pat Vellner, in the company’s first-ever athlete-inspired training shoe. TYR worked with Vellner on customizing the look of the shoe to capture the personality, work ethic and relentlessness in the design of the TYR CXT-1 Trainer.

“I wanted to make a classic-looking shoe with some subtle bits of personality,” said Vellner. “It’s meant to represent my unassuming and stoic demeanor on the competition floor, but with a lot of personality lurking just under the surface.”

Vellner chose the colors and custom logoed insoles, but also added some inspiration to the back of the heel. Vellner chose the mantra “Persist and Prevail” such that Persist is on the left heel while Prevail is on the right heel.

Vellner explained, “It’s just a simple reminder of what we all want and how to get there, boiled down into two words. No matter what our goals are, the only way to get there is to be stubbornly persistent until the day you get to check that box.”

“Pat is one of the greatest crossfitters of all time and we are honored to have him collaborate with us on our first-ever athlete-inspired training shoe,” said Matt DiLorenzo, CEO of TYR Sport.

The shoes are available now on TYR’s website for $150 in both men’s and women’s sizes.
