When choosing a training shoe, it’s important to consider three key factors: fit, support, and cushioning. Your perfect workout shoe should fit comfortably and securely, with enough room in the toe box to allow for natural foot movement. It also needs to provide adequate support for the foot and ankle, particularly for the specific type of training you will be doing.

Cushioning is also important to help protect the feet and reduce the impact on joints during high-impact activities, such as high-intensity interval training. The perfect workout shoe for you offers a good balance of cushioning and support to help you perform at your best. Here’s our guide to the best new workouts shoes to elevate your training.
