The Best Sneakers to Crush Your Workout Routines


What you wear on your feet can make you faster, stronger, and more coordinated. And when you have more than one fitness goal you need more than one pair of shoes. Meaning, you shouldn’t wear your dance-cardio kicks during a heavy-lifting session. Another reason to expand your collection: Exercisers who used multiple pairs of sneakers were 39 percent less likely to be sidelined by an injury than those who wore just one.

Run on the Beach: BROOKS PureConnect 4

The sole is lined with 24 oval pods of cushion that reposition independently with each strike. This allows muscles in your feet to move more naturally over the shifting sand (unlike with stiffer, rigid soles), which strengthens your entire foot. There’s a band that runs up your instep and wraps around your midfoot to keep you locked in place so you can maneuver confidently.

Walk Farther: Saucony Kineta Relay

Three words: memory-foam footbed. You’ll sink in (as your body does to a memory-foam mattress) and feel total comfort, so feet won’t get sore on long strolls. The tongue seamlessly attaches to the upper, making it easy to slip in and go.


Crush CrossFit: Inov8 F-Lite 235

A 0-millimeter drop from the dense heel to forefoot keeps you low to the ground, providing a stable base for exercises from Olympic lifts to box jumps to 400-meter sprints. Protective rubber extending across the front buffers toes during drop-down moves like burpees and push-ups, while grippy rubber strands spread around the entire upper like a web to shield from rope burn.


Do Faster Intervals: New Balance Fresh Foam Zante

The toe curves upward, helping launch you forward. Plus, it’s seriously lightweight (at 6.4 ounces it’s the lightest shoe in our bunch). All of this makes it easier to take frequent and quicker steps, which, according to research, makes you more efficient. That means you’ll feel super-strong during those Tabata intervals or speed drills.


Train for a Triathlon: Asics DS Trainer 20

Slip into this seamless sneaker for a quick transition. (The smooth upper won’t give sockless feet blisters.) Dense foam on the inner side of the midsole keeps your just-swam, just-cycled tired feet from rolling inward, helping power you through the rest of the distance.
