• Designed for natural movement; highly flexible
• SpEVA midsole adapts to your foot and enhances versatility
• Comfortable, supportive, and stable
Lacking durability, and not suitable for walking.
Performance: For those who want a pair of shoes that can keep up with just about any type of workout—from HIIT to CrossFit to running to weightlifting—these are the ones you want. They come with a solid heel that reduces impact on your joints, but they're not so thick they'll compromise your mobility. Thanks to their impact-absorbing design, you can run, lift, or train without worrying about aching knees or back.
They're not comfortable for distance walking, but they're great on the treadmill, elliptical machine, and bicycle. You get excellent traction on concrete floors, plus a solid sole that offers a stable platform and great versatility. You'll love the grooves in the sole that allow for rapid lateral movements and quick turns.
Features: The shoes come with a memory foam insole that will adapt to the shape and contours of your foot, making the shoes more comfortable with each use. The SpEVA midsole is designed to absorb impact and speeds up "bounce back" from jumps or high-impact movements. The asymmetrical design of the shoes gives you more versatility in your movement.
The shoe isn't the most durable, but the breathable mesh upper is comfortable and lightweight. It's a pair of shoes to wear inside the gym, box, or cardio workout room. Thanks to the GEL cushioning in the heel, it's very supportive for your back, knees, and ankles.
Price: Starting at just under $40 and rising as high as $180, these are on the pricier end of the scale. What they lack in durability, however, they more than make up for in versatility and flexibility.
