Regardless of whether you are working out a jolt or giving your last strength on the next complex (wod), your legs provide you with reliability in all movements. This means that a poor choice of shoes (for example, unsuitable for running) can negate your entire workout or, worse, cause injury.
So what should you wear? Ideal crossfit shoes provide leg support, stability and confidence that will not let you down in the most difficult workouts (do not fall apart at the most inopportune moment). The choice of shoes is limited only by your goals and budget. You can buy awesome cool shoes suitable for any complex or pick up another pair for weightlifting. You decide. I just want to advise the best shoes that are suitable for crossfit and which you will gladly pack with your bag.
Nike Metcon 3
In the second update of Nike crossfit shoes, the company sought to increase flexibility, durability and breathability. All three improvements are noticeable, but the best feature of the new model is a hard ridge in the back of the heel. The thin plastic part virtually eliminates friction when your heels are pressed against the wall during push-ups in the handstand.
New Balance Minimus 20v4
For shoes, a hard sole that does not “squish” is crucial. Soft shoes reduce stability and complicate the transfer of energy to muscles. Of course, Reebok Nano and Nike Metcon have a tougher surface that is ideal for weight lifting, but I would prefer the New Balance Minimus 20v4. Thin flexible sole makes it a versatile shoe that is not bad at weightlifting, but better suited for cardio exercises such as rowing, running, double jumps on a rope.
Inov-8 FastLift 370 BOA
Inov-8’s FastLift offers a solid platform ideal for weightlifting. However, these shoes can not be attributed to the purely weightlifting. The flexible forefoot and the relatively light weight for the toggles make it excellent for any workout. Lacing provides fast and reliable fixation of the foot and simplifies the change of shoes during training.
Super lightweight Bio-Speed (each boot is only 220 grams) has patented Qu! Kfoam material in the sole and insole. Such a system provides perfect sprints and jump exercises, such as boxing, long jumps, etc. Bio-Speed maintains a stiff heel if you decide to do heavy lifting.
Asics Gel-Fortius 2 TR
These durable shoes are not as famous as Reebok, but this is one of the best minimalist shoes. The closest relative to this shoe is Minimus, but Gel-Fortius offers a lighter sole. Asics shoes are also great for crossfit. During the exercise, weightlifting in them, you feel stable and confident. The front half of the sole is made of a more flexible material that allows you to perform well running exercises, jumping rope.
New Balance Cross Trainers
New Balance Cross Trainers are perfect for training! Cush + technology and flexible grooves in the sole provide maximum comfort and natural movement. The breathable top of the model and the special design of the tongue allow you to look and feel great.
