Find the right pair of shoes for your workout with our selection of gym shoes and trainers. Whether you’re a CrossFit buff or prefer to hit the road for a run you’ll find the right pair of shoes for your workout. The worst thing you can do is just grab any pair of takkies when you hit the gym. An old pair of shoes may no longer have the support you need. And even more problematic, that pair of shoes might be inappropriate for the activity you choose.
If you’re new to weight training game or perhaps you’ve been doing HIIT for some time, you need to pay attention to the type of shoe you wear. To really perform well in any sport, from doing deadlifts and squats to hitting the trail, it pays to put on a pair of shoes specifically made for the type of training. If you’re lifting weights, then choose a new pair of dedicated training shoes will give you both stability and be lightweight enough to give you flexibility for bursts of HIIT sessions. If you’re looking for running shoes then remember to select a pair one size up so that you reduce impact on your feet since runners place more force on their forefoot. You also want a shoe that has more cushioning on the forefoot, while walking shoes should have stiffer rubber to support the heel. You also need to remember to replace your shoes every 500 to 800 kilometers to ensure your feet are supported every step of the way. If you’re not necessarily dedicated to one sport and like to change between different types of exercise then choose a cross trainer that is lightweight with a firm heel and good support.
