Wear these for everything from cardio to strength training and beyond!
Wearing the proper footwear for your workout, no matter what activity you’re participating in, is very important. It's not about fashion, but about function. At the very least, the wrong shoe could hinder the effectiveness of your workout. At the worst, it could lead to injury. Here are the best sneakers for every activity.
Vivobarefoot Primus Lite
If there is one shoe that can keep you going throughout most of your workouts, the Vivobarefoot Primus Lite is it. Lightweight and very breathable, these vegan sneakers are sustainably made from recycled PET plastic bottles.
Vivobarefoot has a unique approach when it comes to designing shoes. If you're the kind of person who wishes they didn’t need to wear shoes when they workout, or find most sneakers to be constricting, you'll love Vivobarefoot. Incredibly comfortable, these sneakers allow your foot to move as naturally as possible.
Athletic Propulsion Labs APL TechLoom Breeze Merino Wool Collection
Wear these for running on treadmill, boot camp, and studio classes that combine cardio with strength training.
Running and cardio can have a high impact on the body, so it’s ideal to wear a supportive shoe that also allows you to move. The APL TechLoom Breeze Merino Wool Collection is more than just beautifully designed. These are the brand’s lightest and most sustainable running shoe yet. After two years in development, they are also the first technical-knit shoe with the wool certification trademark.
The TechLoom upper part of the sneaker is made from 80% Australian Merino wool. This breathable material regulates the temperature of the foot and is stain as well as odor resistant. Wool also strengthens the shoe, gives it greater elasticity, and allows it to naturally hug the foot with maximum support.
Saucony Women’s Switchback ISO
Wear these for trail running outside and your weekly hike.
Saucony’s Women's Switchback ISO integrates several different kinds of technology. The BOA dial lacing system allows you to create a custom fit for the most comfort. The ISOFIT upper sole allows the foot to bend and flex as needed along a potentially ever-changing trail. The EVERUN midsole is contoured to cradle the foot while still allowing for flexibility and energy. The dual-density PWRTRAC outsole has a firmer center with the right amount of traction, which is essential for running on a potentially muddy or wet trail.
CLAE X Agnes B. Bradley
Wear these for walking around town all day or exploring a new city.
There are times when we aren’t necessarily working out or doing a sport, but walking around for a long enough period to count as a workout. Available in men’s and women's sizing in four colors (black, white, red and navy), the CLAE X Agnes B. Bradley shoe is just as comfortable as it is stylish. This shoe has the right amount of support, so the foot breathes, but after hours of going here, there, and everywhere, you still feel good enough to kick them off and throw on a pair of heels for nighttime. A collaboration between the trendy Los Angeles shoe brand and iconic French designer, they look stylish with everything from leggings to jeans.
