We have a gym policy that people must wear closed-toe gym-appropriate shoes when they use our exercise equipment/track and weights. I am curious if any gyms have a policy regarding the ‘barefoot’ shoes in their free weight areas or on cardio equipment. What do you think of these shoes?
I don’t see any problems allowing people wearing these types of shoes in the gym (unless it’s against the policies). If someone drops a weight on their foot, it makes no difference what type of shoe he/she is wearing.
