Gym shoes

We all wear them. Which ones, or styles do you find it easier or better to train in? I see Chuck Taylor's quite a bit and of coyrse the never-ending styles of Nike, Reebok and Adidas. I wear tennis shoes, boxing and wrestling boots as well as Otomix stingrays. I don't have a one pair suits all. Some are mire comfortable to me than others, some are better for me to squat in versus others etc. What's your shoe of choice for training and why?

Bare feet or mat shoes for

Bare feet or mat shoes for stability when I can. Those comfort soled shoes are horrible for stability and place me at a higher risk of injury.

When I do find myself needing to wear an athletic shoes I generally wear a version of the Nike Air.... I like the light weight and ventilation of these shoes.

Sorry ladies.... I noticed after posting that this was in the women's training section.

Flat boots on leg days

Hello Calmb4dastorm,

I like to use flat boots from Ryderwear. I fond it very comfortable I do use it on days which the exercices require stability for example , when I have to perform movements as squats, deadlifts, bent-over-rows, stand shoulder presses and other compound or olympic movements. I prefere those because my body will be more stable and the regular trainers (like the running ones) tend to unbalance you a little/ to the front because your hells are higher/lifter in comparation with the toes. On other days, when I have to perform cardio, hiit and if the training doesn't require stand stance stability, I use running Nike trainers.

Nike metcons. Originally

Nike metcons. Originally developed for CrossFit. They have a stiff flat sole perfect for lifting yet flexible enough to use them for a tough cardio session too. Perfect gym show for me.

Hi Stranger!

It's great to see and hear from you! I see people train in boots at Gold's and Workout Anytime. You Know, its agaibst the rules at Planet Fitness to Workout in boots...seems to intimidate people ROTFLMAO! 

Not much going on with me bit cruising through the remainder of my bulk and trying to nurse left shoulder and knee pain. The seasons are a changing and my joints give me the fits when the temperature drops! Otherwise it's business as usual, Odin!Laughing
