What are cross training shoes?

Cross training shoes are great for women who like to switch up their workouts and need a versatile shoe that can keep up. Cross-trainers are designed to provide support and stability for a variety of exercises, such as running, jumping and aerobics. They typically feature a durable and breathable upper and a stable heel. They also provide good traction for different surfaces, whether you're working out in the gym or on the field.


What is the difference between a running shoe and a cross-training shoe?

Running shoes and cross-training shoes are both great options for different types of activities. Running shoes are perfect for... well, running! They're designed to provide extra cushioning and support for your feet while you're out on a run. On the other hand, cross-training shoes are a tad more versatile. They're perfect for a variety of exercises, like aerobics, jumping or weightlifting. They're built to provide more stability and support than running shoes, especially in the heel and in lateral movements. So, if you're someone who likes to switch up their workouts and do different types of exercises, cross-training shoes might be the best fit for you. But if running is your main activity, running shoes are the way to go!


Is it OK to walk in cross training shoes?

Yes, it is perfectly fine to walk in cross-training shoes. In fact, many people prefer to use them as their everyday shoe because of their versatile design. They're built to provide extra  support and stability for various exercises, but they are also suitable for walking and other daily activities. Cross trainers are typically made with durable and breathable materials, so they are comfortable for long-term wear. Additionally, cross-training sneakers often have a non-slip sole, which provides much needed extra traction for walks on all types of surfaces.


What cross training shoes should I buy?

When choosing cross-training shoes, it's important to consider your specific needs and the types of activities you'll be doing. Here are a few things to keep in mind while you shop:

Look for cross trainers with a durable and breathable upper. This will keep your feet comfortable and cool during high-intensity workouts.

Make sure they have good arch support. This will help to keep you comfortable and stable during exercises that involve a lot of lateral movement.

Most importantly, we all want a comfortable fit. Make sure to try your new cross training sneakers on and walk around the house to ensure they feel comfortable on your feet.
