Sneakers for the gym: what you need to know before buying

Where to buy gym shoes
When to buy sports shoes?
Sneakers for fitness: choose a model
How to try on gym shoes

Sports shoes are an important, almost main, element of sports equipment. It often causes a trauma, so saving on it is more expensive. Beginners should buy one, but expensive universal pair of sneakers, which will be equally comfortable when performing strength exercises, and while working on cyclic simulators. Here are the rules to keep in mind before you buy gym shoes.

Where to buy gym shoes
Shoes for sports must be bought not in the online store and not in the market. Go to the sports shop. It is in it:

there is a guarantee of the purchase of a real, not a fake brand;
a qualified seller will talk about the specific “specialization” of each model and which ones are suitable for working in the gym;
under normal conditions, you can try on and do a “mini-test drive” of the pair;
the ability to quickly return or exchange goods.
When to buy sports shoes?
Like “regular” sports shoes should be purchased in the evening. At this time, tired feet have the largest volume, and this size parameter is as important as the length.

How to choose the right shoes for training

Sneakers for fitness: choose a model
Choose the top model of the famous brand of the new or future season. Its price is “biting,” but worth it. Making an expensive purchase, in return you get:

brand quality and advantages of new technologies;
long operation;
physical and “moral” comfort in training;
increased self-esteem.

How to try on gym shoes
When you go to the sports shop to buy gym shoes, do not forget to bring a pair of clean socks with them for trying them on. At the same time, prepare a significant amount of money for the purchase of several new pairs whose company will match the shoes that fit you. Your look will be much cooler if the brand names on socks and sneakers match. You must admit that socks for 1.5 bucks and expensive shoes are not a “camillefo” either from the point of view of your own feelings, or to evaluate you from the outside.

Choose a sports pair 0.5 sizes larger than casual shoes. To get started, carefully look at how the sneakers are sewn. Alas, but in expensive boutiques you can “run into” marriage or counterfeit. Everything is smooth, nowhere has it cracked, wrinkled, sticking out and sticking out? Then check the nuances:

Sole. Its universal height is 3 cm. In this case, light effort should be enough to bend the shoe by 45 °. This is the best angle. If it is more or less, then such a model for training in the gym is not suitable. Now try to bend the shoe with a screw in different directions. Did the front of the sole rotate 90 ° to the heel? That’s a lot, look for another model.
Lateral support. Look and feel the sub-ankle parts. They must be multilayer, dense, elastic.
Arch support. First, they should be. Secondly, the “company” they are not only glued, but also stitched. Thirdly, while trying on the soles should feel them, otherwise you will have to buy special inserts.
Climb. Here the rule is simple. With an unbuttoned shoe, the foot should freely enter and exit it. No effort, twitching and especially shoe horns!
How to choose the right shoes for training

After completing a visual inspection, measure both sneakers at the same time. Take your time, lace up “slippers” with an average degree of compression. Get up, move your fingers. Happened? Then roll from socks to heels, walk, run in place, jump, squat. Pay attention if the back is squeezing?

If you experience the slightest discomfort, do not hesitate to look for another option. Is there no suitable? Do not follow the urge to buy shoes here and now. Or go to another store, or check with the seller for the date of the next delivery of the goods. The purchase of sports shoes does not endure fuss.
