This lady is in need of a new pair of kicks! The shoes I wear for my workouts I also wear at work when training my clients & they’re just gettin’ run down. I need a good cross-training shoe that allows me to handle the different movements & drills I do in my P90X3, T25, Insanity & soon-to-be the 21DayFix training. No running shoe recommendations please, because the extra cushioning in running shoes don’t allow me to land properly & can cause knee & ankle injuries from instability. Function over fashion is my #1 objective, although I do love fun pops of color!
One thing that you might ad to your question is foot width. I have an extremely wide foot and found that certain companies would not work for me, though in examining the shoes, and talking to people I could only say good things about them.
Because most of my work is done barefoot I need shoes that go on and off easily, but work for the occasional cardio or strength class I teach, or for my own outdoor and indoor walking, weight room, etc. I actually really like Merrell. I started wearing their clogs years ago, but discovered they have a hiking shoe I have worn for a several years now. I just ordered a new pair this morning.
