Why is it so hard to find the best workout shoes for women? I have gone through numerous shoes over the years and still don’t believe I have found the right one. Hopefully there is a shoe pro out there reading this that will be able to help guide us in the right direction.
I’m particularly looking for a shoe that is good for workouts like kickboxing, Walk Away the Pounds workout videos, boxing, boot camp type workouts, other cardio workouts, etc. I also do strength training and minimal running on the treadmill and need something durable enough for all of it combined, if there is such a thing. I need a good stable and supportive shoe especially since I’ll be doing a lot of side to side movement on interlocking exercise flooring mats in our home gym.
Do I need a pair of cross trainers? Do I need two separate pair of shoes for what I do?
I have had a linear foot fracture for quite some time and haven’t been able to workout for the last couple months . I’m trying to heal now that I have had a shot but now it’s time for me to start looking for shoes that are going to work for me when I start to ease back into my workouts.
I don’t run much except on the treadmill, walk trails and do kickboxing, cross training, regular boxing and things like that. Does that mean I would need two different pairs of shoes? One for kickboxing AND one for when I do other things like walking videos, other cardio, boot camp type workouts, etc?
I am really confused when it comes to the best workout shoes for me. My shoe size is 9 1/2 wide and I’m currently wearing men’s size Brooks Pure Flow.
I have been wearing this brand/type of shoe for quite some time but not sure it’s the right shoe for me. The feel of the shoe has been the best over all others I tried but I’m still not sure it’s the perfect fit.
There are so many brands out there like New Balance, Avia, Adidas, Nike, Ryka, Saucony and MORE! Please help me decipher which would be best for me!
