Which Workout Shoes Are Right For Me?

It’s incredible how much our feet can do! Sure, they may not be the most attractive part of our body, but our life certainly wouldn’t be the same without them. And, that is why taking care of our feet is not only important to our fitness life, but also to our everyday health!


That being said, picking out the right shoes is of the utmost importance. Not only can a good pair of shoes maximize your workout, but they can also serve to protect and cushion those precious feet of yours! You probably know that shoes can get quite pricey, but let me assure you that a good pair of workout shoes is worth the splurge. And, although you can use some shoes for various activities, if you spend a lot of time focusing on a certain sport, there are specific shoes that can help take your workout to a whole new level.


Training Shoes


Training shoes are the best shoes to use if you participate in various types of workouts throughout the week. These shoes are typically built for multi-directional movement and the sole is pretty flat, which allows for a wider range of motion. Training shoes are a great multipurpose option that you should have in your gym bag at all times. Try Nike Free TR 6 or New Balance Women’s Agility V2 Cross Trainer



Crossfit Shoes


Yep, there’s a shoe for that! Crossfit require a lot of movement, and there have been shoes specifically designed to give your feet more stability while doing this intense workout. Crossfit shoes are designed to give you better balance and support, thus increasing your overall safety. 

Reebok has a great line of Crossfit shoes, try the Reebok Women’s Crossfit Nano 5.0



Spinning Shoes And Cleats


If spin classes are your thing, you’re going to love these! There are shoes and cleats made specifically for avid indoor cyclers like yourself. These shoes have the ability to click into the pedal of most spinning bikes, locking your feet into position and thus leading to a more effective workout. Try Tommaso Pista 100 Women’s Spin Class Ready Cycling Shoe with Compatible Cleat



Distance Running Shoes


If you’re running miles at a time, you’re going to want to make sure your feet are in the best shoes possible! Distance running shoes are especially durable, lightweight and comfortable, making those long runs outside even more enjoyable. There are two types of distance running shoes that are each designed for different terrains: road-running and trail-running. Consider what types of runs you do more often and research shoes accordingly. Brooks and Asics make some of the best running shoes. Try Brooks Womens Revel or Asics GT-2000 6 Trail Women’s Running Shoes




Get Professional Help When Choosing Shoes


Employees in athletic shoe stores really do know best! And, did you know there are even some stores that can use specially designed technology to measure feet and fit you to the perfect shoe? They can measure your arch support, tell you if your feet turn in or out while walking, and even find out what part of the foot you put the most pressure on. It’s like a sporty Cinderella story!


New Balance is a major retailer that does a great job fitting their customers with the perfect shoe. Fleet Feet is another shop that does a great job matching your feet with the right shoes… and all of their stores are locally owned and operated!


Remember: happy feet lead to a better workout!

Recently I’ve been stuck in a situation where I’ve tried literally everything to solve my problems and the circumstances still remained the same. But, low and behold, God has been using this season of despair to take the attention off of what’s been happening in my life and instead putting the focus on the condition of my heart." #FetchFitLife #NewPost #FaithBlog #SpiritualBlog #WordsOfEncouragement #newpost #blogger #wilmingtonnc #faith #christian #devotional #northcarolina
