If the Shoe Fits

If the Shoe Fits

I don’t know about you, but personally when it comes to buying a new pair of sneaks I gravitate to the cutest ones. I rarely put much thought into what type of shoe I should be working out in. I mean a sneaker is a sneaker right? Well, I guess I was wrong. I recently went to Finish Line and found the cutest shoes that I knew would look super fly up at the gym. The sales rep has asked me if I was runner. Is that a serious question? I get a side-ache five minutes into a run! So, with that being said does your shoe fit? Let’s compare a Training and Running shoe. When you are ready for some new sneaks be mindful about what you really need.

Training Shoe

Yes! I had to put this one at the top because its my favorite shoe to train those glutes aka booty. A Training shoe is very versatile but not necessarily for everyone. This shoe is perfect for weight training and sports. This shoe definitely provides a lot of support and stability. The sides of the shoe provide even more support for lateral movements of the feet.  A training shoe is very durable and can often be a little heavier than a running shoe. If you find yourself in the gym doing more cardio on the treadmill I would opt for a running shoe because it’s lighter. If you are unsure about what type of shoe you are about to purchase my suggestion is ask a sales rep at the store. One of my very favorite shoes to train in is Nike Zoom Fit Agility. This gives me so much support and not to heavy when I want to dedicate my workouts to Plyo movements for conditioning.

Running Shoe

I so wish I could be that person that loves to have a major sweat session from having a gorgeous outdoor run. I love to do the occasional cardio so I always keep one pair of running shoes just in case. Who knows maybe one day I’ll turn into that major fierce woman who runs a 10k. A girl can dream! Running shoes are a breed within itself if cardio is your thing, make sure you are wearing the right shoe. Running shoes are designed to be lightweight to make a run as seamlessly smooth as possible. They are designed for forward movements. The shoe is designed for special cushioning to help support the foot with impact to the ground. If you prefer online shopping, Zappos.com is a great site for running shoes. Free Shipping and ends up on your doorstep within 2 days! Online shopping you are too good to be true.

    Do you ever feel bad when you pick a pretty trainer instead of a more neutral one?
    That’s my biggest struggle! And of course I vow to only buy a nice grey or a sleek black that will go with any workout gear. But I end up with a Tiffany blue or lovely lilac pair every time.

      Hi, Stephanie! You can never go wrong with Tiffany Blue. I find that beauty reflects who you are inside. Find a trainer that you have a connection with and you gravitate to that person. Thank you for stopping by my blog! Happy 2016!
