Although a regular gym shoe might be good enough for any old workout, you aren’t just doing any old workout—you are doing the ultimate workout. So you need a CrossFit shoe that provides stability while lifting, comfort and cushion while sprinting, and secure support for jumps and WODs. Just like you take care of your body while working out to ensure correct form and movement, you’ve got to take care of your feet, too. And since you already work hard enough in the gym, we’ve taken the work out of choosing the best shoe for your exercise. Need a minimal, yet stable shoe to ground you while you lift? No problem. A shoe that works for WODs and can supplement your other workout needs, like a longer run? Got it.
Here are six of the best CrossFit shoes, including one designed specifically for Olympic lifting classes, to keep your training sharp.
