Best Sneakers For Gym Workout?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need new sneakers. Something for treadmill, light weights, stationary bike, and comfortable cushioning for walking. Any specific suggestions?

Since you're not doing heavy lifting, I would recommend running shoes from Brooks or Asics (such as the Gel Kayaone). Although they're ugly as hell, they're ridiculously comfortable.

If you were doing heavy lifting, you should not be wearing sneakers with cushioning. You need flat shoes such as converses.

They breath nicely and afterwards my feet can't even tell I've been working out. They do seem to run about a half size too big, but it hasn't affected the comfort for me at all. There are some negative reviews in regards to these shoes holding up to running outside. It's probably fair to mention that I don't think these shoes are really meant for outdoors, they're cross training/gym shoes, which means exclusively indoors. That's probably why these are quite a bit cheaper than running shoes as well. Most gyms, including mine, require you to use shoes that haven't been used outdoors anyway so as long as you are respectful of that policy this shouldn't be an issue. But if you're looking for something to use both indoors and outdoors, this might not be the shoe for you.

The statement in bold seems hard to believe. More likely, most gyms only require that the footwear is athletic and closed-toe.
