Are You Wearing the Right Cross-Trainers?


Those running shoes you’ve turned into all-purpose workout sneakers? Throw ’em out. Running shoes are strictly for running, and your new workout plan extends far beyond the treadmill. Oddly enough, cross-training requires a cross-training shoe. Check out these cross-trainers that are up to the task and capable of running circles around your current go-to footwear.

Taking your workout from the gym to the track? Check out the Nike Lunar TR1. Flywire over the top and superior arch support underneath make for a secure and locked-in fit.

Cross-training can be high-speed and high-intensity, so it only makes sense to have a shoe that can keep up. The Under Armour Micro G Defend is designed to keep you going, on and off the field. Blending stability and support while staying lightweight, the Micro G Defend is engineered to keep it together when your workout’s getting intense.

For the explosive athlete, we have the Nike Free Trainer 5.0 TB. Secured with a dual-pull lacing system, it provides a sock-like fit. The outsole is composed of a multi-directional grip material, which is built to handle multiple surfaces should your workout take you there.
