How To Choose a shoe, that suits you !!

Hey folks, here are my tips I have come up with when researching how to pick a shoe, that suits you !! Hopefully, these tips will help you find the right shoe whilst taking into consideration factors such as their purpose, budget, common sense and your safety whilst training.

What do you need them for??

Do you know exactly what you will need the shoes for?You need to get this clear, as all shoes in a sports store (online or actual) are designed for different purposes. Here are some simple examples illustrating this :
weight training – your feet need to have a good “feel” / firm grip on the ground when lifting heavy weights to naturally help you maintain balance. Makes sense doesn’t it? So leading on from that concept, wear flat soled or barefoot running style shoes that help you maintain natural stability and balance for your own safety.
Running – When we run, our feet go through a different range of motion known as pronation as compared to when we are lifting weights and cross training etc. The most important consideration here again is to maintain support and stability for our bodies whilst running. The right shoe for you whilst running will take into account your pronation or running style and hopefully compensate for this to help protect and maintain good posture and balance.

Cross training – Again, here common sense dictates that the type of motion that your feet, ankles, knees etc experience during cross training is different to pushing weights, walking, running etc. Just thinking about it will tell you it will be more varied in motion range. Support, balance and protection need to be considered here again when picking a shoe for this type of training.

How much do you have to spend on the next pair??

Just like when you go food shopping, decide beforehand what your budget is and even write it down on your hand or a bit of paper or your phone. This is so when you go looking you don’t over spend and you end up only looking at products that are relevant to your search and thereby saving time in the process etc.

Ask for help !!

When you walk into the store whether it be online or an actual store, ask for help straight away. I know right, pretty common sense hey?Don’t do what I do and just say “I’m just looking ” or browsing and then spend the next 15 minutes trying to figure out where to start. In the online world this might be via their messaging service/chat portal on their website.

I recently went and bought a pair of cross trainers in an actual store a couple weeks ago and going against my usual behavior, I accepted help from a friendly sales assistant as soon as I walked in the place. That decision turned into heaps of technical and sound help and me walking out with a pair of shoes that I am very happy with !!

Try them on, only you know what suits you !!

I know this is pretty obvious, but try shoes on when you are able to get into an actual store. Also, make sure that when you try them on that you use the type of socks that you will wear with that type of shoe. Big, fat woolly socks will not be worn with a runner or cross trainer so use the correct sock when doing this. The right sock will help your foot to “feel” if it is comfy or not it that particular shoe.

The other thing is when you have the shoes on, go for a walk in the store and check out how they feel on your foot whilst in motion.The important fact here is aside from all the buying guides, suggestions, technical stuff, sales people advice etc, etc………only you will know which shoe “feels ” right to you, your gut will tell you as well as your feet !!

8 Comments on “The best cross training shoes for women in 2019 !! – my top 15 review”

  1. Hi! I always encourage people to exercise. And it’s a thrill to see them take action. And this is the case right now. I’ve suggested my sister to set apart time daily to go running, and she has heard me. So I want to surprise her with a present I know she’ll appreciate. From the shoes you mention on this post, in my book the best is Adidas Women’s Alphabounce Em W Running Shoe. I’ll purchase those for her.

    1. Hi Henry, I couldn’t agree with you more in relation to exercise.I do hope that your sister does like the gift that you will be giving her in the form of new training shoes.I also hope that it helps her to continue on with her exercise.Thanks heaps for your comment here r.e. this post :))

  2. firstly, thank you for this detailed and exhaustive review. I cannot agree less with you concerning the what to lookout for when selecting a pair of shoes to buy. I had once bought a training shoe once without trying it out only for me to use it and it gave me sore feet just because it was too tight. I have a training partner who I promised a gift if she could lose a certain number of pounds from her body weight and she has done that in a surprising manner. I was contemplating on getting her luxurious gift before but coming across this post, I figured out getting her a pair of this would be perfect as it would motivate her to do better and better.

    I prefer the Reebok Women’s CROSSFIT Nano 8.0 Flexweave Cross Trainer, considering the rating and the number of purchases, it seems cool

  3. Hi Billy, what an impressively comprehensive article on making the right choice for our next pair of shoes! After reading this, I don’t feel inclined to ask any questions of the ‘salesperson’ since you have provided such a closeup look at each of your top choices for cross training shoes. 

    I have to admit that I had to look up exactly what a ‘cross training shoe’ is, but after watching the video, it’s quite clear. It was also very interesting to know about the ‘wet foot test’ for determining one’s arch and gait. I do have a question though: I’m guessing that a cross training shoe would be the correct type for going to the gym and using the various workout machines, right?

    Thanks for sharing all this useful information!

    Sue

    1. Hey Sue, thanks heaps for checking out my article and your feedback here.Yes friend,this type of shoe can be used for gym,boxing,weight training ,outdoor training etc.Basically everything that any cross training activity would cover.
