Vibram fan here! I run in those silly looking five-toed shoes and i love it! I wear the KMD Evo Cross Training shoe. I switched over to barefoot shoes due to my flat feet after spending many years in shoes with tons of arch support. My orthopedic doctor used to always recommend me walking barefoot when possible when i was a kid so i figured these shoes would be worth a shot. After wearing them for a few weeks i noticed my arches had stopped hurting completely when i wore shoes without arch support (work flats) and i am slowly fixing my duck feet as i become more aware of the way i step. I also feel more stable in them then my old shoes when doing floor exercises. I transitioned into them fairly quickly, in about a week i was running 2 miles in them just fine. I got mine for amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KR4TGHC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

they feel super weird at first but after a while, they are fantastic. on the Vibram site you can see how the sizing works and how these should fit and you can also look up and see if there is a store near you that carries them so you can try them on in person to figure out your size. Or you can do what i did and get them off amazon and plan on returning them if you dont like them lol

I wear 8.5 in shoes, generally 9 in running shoes. My vibrams are a womens 8 and fit like a glove.

Good luck on your search!

I <3 my Yoda top. I'm all of 5' 2" and most of the other folks in the free weight area are huge dudes squatting 400 lbs. So I get some extra giggles out of it. :)

I do love my Five Finger shoes. The traction is unreal, so I feel super stable while lifting. (They are NOT good MMA shoes. That awesome traction can cause some nasty twisting action at the knee when you're trying to kick.)

It is weird to have something between all your toes, though--and they really can be a major PITA to get on, but I think it's because of the kind I got. I insisted on having one that adjusts around the ankle and the only ones that do that are the ones that come up pretty far on the top of the foot. Something like these would probably be easier to deal with because of the lacing on the top.

Oh - if you're looking to use them to run, for the love of Pete, start slow!

Sure! I am happy to! I'll add a link if the item is new enough that you could still potentially buy it, too.

Powerlifting - I use both converses for deadlifts and squat shoes like these for better ankle mobility when squatting. Those types of shoes also work great if weightlifting (clean and jerk; snatches).

Squat-proof leggings/shorts. Just test these before you buy them. I don't like to splurge on them cause I'm cheap, but I found Forever21 to be pretty awesome in the athletic dept. I also heard good things about Old Navy.

Chalk - most gyms don't allow it, so I buy a liquid chalk and wipe the bar afterwards. No mess.

High five field friend, I was a jumper. I'd recommend a trail runner with a stiff sole. This will be a nice combination of cushiony support for field work and solid sole for lifting. The key is finding something that you can run in comfortably but is still solid enough that your feet won't rock around on the cushion when you lift heavy. Maybe something like this. Your other option will be a Crossfit shoe that's meant for lifting and jumping, like this

These cross training shoes would really come in handy as I'm attending the gym frequently. A good pair of shoes really makes all the difference! (I will again once I get the clear and am out of the hospital, first of all.)

I don't know if these are exactly your style or if you even attend a gym, but in the event you do- do yourself a big favor and invest in a decent pair of shoes!! Your feet and back will thank me!

Anyone here have these shoes? https://www.amazon.com/Inov-8-Fastlift-370-Cross-Trainer-Womens/dp/B01B26ADI4/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=7ZWFB67Q5AGK2PYBAD5B

Don't know why it says "women's" in the link, and men in the product title, but anyway... I'm on a budget, but my tall ass could use some proper lifting shoes. They sound perfect for me, but I'd like to get the opinion of some peers I can trust as opposed to random Amazon reviews.

I love these, they aren't flat though: Inov-8 Men's FastLift 370 BOA Cross-Training Shoe,Black,4.5 US https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KR68D4M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_FLAnzbR1Q6F0Z

Are great shoes and hold up over quite some time!

u/tt463 · 1 pointr/zumba

These are ok, lots of my friends at Zumba have these, but they definitely run a half size big.

RYKA Women's Influence Training... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HNBLDCS?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

u/osnoes · 2 pointsr/Sneakers

These are the women's Nike Free TR 6. Looks like $35-$40 is an average resale price for these.


u/emmatastic · 2 pointsr/zumba

Ryka studio shoes! I’ve been doing Zumba for years, and everything has hurt my feet (wide feet, low arches, narrow heel), except for these. I have Ryka studio d, but it looks like they don’t make those anymore. These look like they have the same idea, just different styling: Ryka Women's Tenacity Cross-Trainer Shoe, Black/Green, 10 M US https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CR9FIF8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ukJ3Cb6YRVY2N

Someone recommended Sabo to me. I'd be interested to know if anyone has personal experience with them.

We are doing museums on Monday when our friends get back from NYC.

These are the shoes: New Balance Women's WX577V4 CUSH + Training Shoe, Black, 10 B US https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FSINZ3M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_koIWBbJQ6N8NA

Hard to tell from you picture but it looks like they might be the Limitless 2.0 trainers


u/nerdeeness · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I'm a big fan of Asics. These shoes are my go to for HIIT.

u/MadtownMaven · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I frequently (like most of the time) wear heels and I don't have ankle pain, but I do have inflexible ankles now. It makes squats a bit tough. Because of that I have some lifting shoes that have a bit of a raised heel. That helped a ton. I've got some similar to these Inov-8 ones. Having the slight higher heel but that's still really solid helped a ton.
