What do you think about working out barefoot in the gym? Either the idea seems gross to you, or you find it cool with a certain bohemian attraction.
But as certain restaurants have a “No shirts, No shoes, No service” policy, certain gyms have same, which is why I’m here to enlighten you on the best shoes on the market to step into the gym in.
It’s not an easy job finding the right work out shoes. Sometimes you come across the perfect workout shoes and they are not your size.
Trust me when I say it is a very bad idea to hit the gym in uncomfortable gear.
The guide below offers shoes that promise comfort, durability, versatility, but depending on your wallet, maybe not affordability.
- Nike Jordan Men’s Jordan Eclipse Running Shoe. The Eclipse has a unique style to it. It comes with a thick rubber sole that assures durability and increased comfort regardless the running surface. The patented Air-Sole in the heel provides added protection especially during longer runs and its camouflaged mesh body improves breathability and moisture control.
It comes in a broad choice of colors which means there’s one out there that’s perfect for you and probably matches the color of your eyes.
- Adidas Performance Men’s Speed Trainer. It comes with a patented Ortholite sockliner to help manage your sweaty feet and ankles.
A smart upper mesh design made from quality synthetic material keeps your feet dry while you’re busy straining and chiseling your body. The midsole and heel’s responsive cushioning protects your feet from workout related discomforts and injury.
The traction outsole can handle most surfaces, ensuring that the Speed Trainers never lose their grip, be it on grass or cement.
Just like the Eclipse Running Shoe, the Speed Trainer’s lightweight design comes in a variety of styles and colors.
- Otomix Weightlifting MMA & Grappling Shoe. They look like boots worn by Covert Operatives or maybe the SAS. That just goes to show you how awesome the Otomix MMA & Grappling Shoes are.
Even though suffering from so much awesomeness, the Otomix is still a very lightweight shoe. It’s made from real leather with synthetic materials woven into it for increased comfort and all important durability.
It also provides essential extra ankle for in case you’re into martial arts or some other form of aggressive workout. There’s also a thin rubber sole to provide you an improved grip while you kick or grapple your way through the gym.
- PUMA Men’s Cell Surin Cross-Training Shoe. This shoes are the next best thing out of the stables of PUMA, a leading brand in sportswear. This amazing cross-training shoe is made up of a unique breathable mesh that covers the toe are and the heel area.
There’s a rubber outsole that ensures increased traction over a range of surfaces. Most of the shoe is made up of synthetic material for minimal weight and extra padding at the heel for increased comfort during high-impact sports.
