Whether you’re going for a walk or walking to pilates, our workout shoes have become a fashion statement in and of themselves. While leggings and crop tops are usually top of people’s lists for a workout wardrobe refresh, the right pair of sneakers are making strides to overtake them.
You don’t have to be a running superstar to be concerned with what’s on your feet, either. Sure, some workouts are more foot-focused, so it’s important to pay attention to things like cushioning and arch support, but we should be looking out for these things regardless of what activity we’re doing.
Oh, and while we’re hellbent on the shoe being supportive, it also needs to be aesthetic as well. You might be thinking that cuts the suitable shoe pool down to almost nothing, but courtesy of on-trend brands like New Balance and Adidas, there’s a stylish shoe out there to suit your personal taste and workout style.
