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!

Honestly the best would be to go try some out, people have different feet with different needs.

If I'm running I use cross country shoes. At home I use yoga socks or for most floor work I'll use yoga socks. Weight lifting I'm going to buy some otomix's soon. But I had some cheap pair of target brand c9 for the longest they were good just for general lifting and gym routines. Not so much for running on a track or street though

I usually exercise barefeet, don't know if that's right but when I did Zumba I worn my Running Adidas shoes and my feet hurt. Maybe because I've got flat feet...

Asics with custom over pronouncation fitting are the lightest, most comfortable and stable trainers I've ever had

...better than Nike Free!

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.

 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.
