What type of shoes should I use for exercising? I do weight training n mattress exercises. Sometimes when I do knee-to-elbow plank in a fast mode on a mattress, my shoes get loosened and start to detach tho I have tied them tight and make them fit. Does anyone have recommendations for the shoe type and brand? Thanks!
I love skechers!! They are for everything.
What ever is most comfortable for your feet
Asics with custom over pronouncation fitting are the lightest, most comfortable and stable trainers I've ever had
...better than Nike Free!
Its good that some people asks for specific suggestions. Having the right shoes can make all the difference in the effectiveness of your workout. I would say focus on flexibility, stability, and overall style. Try Nike free, I've used them a few times at the gym now and I'm really impressed. They breath nicely and afterwards my feet can't even tell I've been working out. They do seem to run about a half size too big, but it hasn't affected the comfort for me at all. There are some negative reviews in regards to these shoes holding up to running outside. It's probably fair to mention that I don't think these shoes are really meant for outdoors, they're cross training/gym shoes, which means exclusively indoors. That's probably why these are quite a bit cheaper than running shoes as well. Most gyms, including mine, require you to use shoes that haven't been used outdoors anyway so as long as you are respectful of that policy this shouldn't be an issue. But if you're looking for something to use both indoors and outdoors, this might not be the shoe for you.
I do my training in reebok crossfit shoes which I could buy for cheapo. Still going strong. Imo pretty good training shoes.
I personally like Puma running shoes. The Faas series are great! Also the Puma Ignite series. You can decide whether you like soft cushion shoes or firmer sturdier ones.
