Travel Dilemma - Casual shoes that can be worn to hotel gym?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Any recommendations for a pair of casual shoes that can go with cargos/chinos but I could get away with using in the hotel gym?  (not so much running, more machines)

 

I need to lighten the carryon and shoes are the big killers.

You can get a pair of Vibrams as well as your usual shoes, they are light.

Nike Flyknit shoes flatten very well for packing.

If you're just weighlifting or doing the elliptical, go with something that gives off a warm Americana vibe. Something like Vans plimsolls or Chuck Taylors are great and flat-bottomed for lifting weights, and pack flat since they're so minimal in contruction. If you want something more fleshed out a retro tennis or indoor soccer shoe would suffice, like Adidas Sambas, etc. I'm partial to these retro Adidas, though almost any of their Originals models, and similar ones from plenty of brands, would work:

If you want a runner that will suffice you can go with flyknits if they're your style; some retro runners in the style of Asics/New Balance/Sauconys/DIadora would get you through light treadmill work if you are into the chunky retro runner look.

They're all great options.The Adidas nails it, in answer to my question and one of the lightweights I think might be good to have in the kitbag as an option as well.  Cheers all.

I don't go to the gym much but I'm one of those who think that outside shoes shouldn't be worn in the gym satisfied.gif

I can understand using 'indoor' shoes for certain sports (basketball/volleyball/indoor soccer etc), but can't really understand packing an extra pair of shoes on a trip only for working out in a hotel gym.

I don't, as I generally do yoga when travelling smile.gif

I've done that for years, especially for multiple night business trips. But then I dont wear my gym clothes anywhere except the gym. I suppose if it was a casual getaway that might be different.
