Cross training shoes


Secure, cushioning cross training shoes help you power through your work out

You work hard and want trainers that support your workout. Feet can take a bit of a pounding in the gym and despite the elliptical being a low impact exercise choice, your weight will put a lot of strain on your feet. The push and pull involved in moving the paddles means that cross training shoes can loosen and rub. It is important to wear trainers for cross training that offer a secure fit and protective cushioning. Choose kicks with a lace and hook-and-loop closure system for additional security. Cushioning will help to protect your feet from the effects of exercise and so adidas has developed shoes that feature a cushioned Cloudfoam midsole and Response Foam midsole. The catalogue also features cross training shoes with a strong canvas upper with reinforced heel counter. Choose anti-slip rubber outsoles such as Adiwear with a supportive Forgedmesh upper for great support. For greater interior comfort and security, pick training shoes with an OrthoLite® sockliner or a Adibouncy EVA sockliner that will hug the foot as you power through your workout.

Brighten your workout kit with adidas shoes for cross training

Superior functionality is great, but you also want your shoes for cross training to look good. The adidas branding is prevalent through the training shoes range, the iconic 3-Stripes and Trefoil logo make an immediate bold statement. Bright flashes of 3-Stripes colour highlighting the uppers and reappearing in the soles of a pure white shoe is stunning. Reflective and metallic stripes add interest and shine as you make your way home from a late gym session. Team your shoes with adidas classic active wear clothing. Choose a cool hoodie, gym leggings, support bra, slim-fit vest and performance socks for the ultimate workout kit. You are ready to hit that gym in pure adidas style!

Running shoes and cross-training shoes are designed for different purposes. Running shoes often have more cushioning, flexibility and breathability to aid in your stride. Cross-training shoes offer versatility for many types of exercise, and provide more support for side-to-side movement like lateral squats and lunges.
Getting the right fit for cross-training shoes is crucial to ensure comfort, support and optimal performance. You should have a thumbnail gap between your big toe and the end of the shoe. The width should feel snug but not too constricting. A good way to test your shoes is to walk around, jog in place, and perform some lateral movements to make sure you find your ideal fit.
