And what about for working out? Not all shoes are created equally so you shouldn't treat them as such. That means you don't want to go running in a shoe that was designed for Zumba or weight-lifting. If you're looking for a good shoe for fitness, check these out:
- Nike Metcon: The Metcon is great for CrossFit and other weight lifting/body weight/functional fitness workouts | $120
- New Balance 811: The NB 811 is a lightweight flexible shoe that's great for any high or low impact workout | $75
