Experts Guide to Gym Shoes

What are Gym Shoes?

Gym shoes are footwear designed to provide shock-absorbing support and stability while working out. Many gym shoes also have unique features that help protect your feet from the impact of running or jumping, helping prevent any potential injuries during your workout session.

Working out at the gym is a great way to get into shape and improve your overall health. But to maximize the result of your workout, it is crucial to have the right gear. That includes good gym shoes that enable you to move freely and safely.

Love my ATOM. I’ve been in pain with my one ankle and both of my knees for many years. I’ve gain so much weight cause wasn’t able to walk or do any exercises. Now since wearing my ATOM my ankle or knees don’t hurt and I’m able do fun activities. Thank you will buy another pair. One for work @ hospital and another for home/gym. Would recommend to my family and friends to buy them."

How to Choose Gym Shoes

Wondering how to choose the best gym shoes for you? Our KURU GURUs outline how to select the perfect pair.

A good pair of gym shoes is essential for a successful workout. But with so many options on the market, it can be difficult to know which ones are right for you. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you're shopping for gym shoes:

  • Determine your activities: What types of workouts will you be doing? Will you be running on the treadmill or lifting weights? Depending on your activities, different shoes will provide the best support.
  • Check for size and width: Make sure you're getting a shoe that's the right size for your feet. You should also consider width when making your purchase, as some shoes run narrow and some run wide.
  • Don't forget your styles: Just because you're working out doesn't mean you can't look good while doing it! Make sure to pick a shoe that you like the look of to keep you motivated.

Gym Shoe Care Tips

Keeping your gym shoes fresh and clean is as simple as following these simple tips from our KURU GURUs.

To ensure you have the best fit possible, there are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for new shoes. You will want to pick the appropriate one to accommodate your demands and foot type. Here are some tips for doing that:

  • Measure your feet: You can do this by tracing the outline of your foot on a sheet of paper and then measuring the distance from the heel to the longest toe. It is essential to measure both feet as sometimes one can be slightly larger than the other.
  • Wear the right socks: When you try on shoes, wear the socks you would typically wear to the gym. This will give you a more accurate sense of how the shoe will feel when you're working out.
  • Ensure there's enough room: Your shoes should have enough room to allow your toes to move freely. You shouldn't feel like your toes are cramped up in the shoe while you're working out, as this can lead to blisters or other problems.
  • Take time to try them out: Once you've found a few shoes that fit these criteria, it's important to test them out. Make sure they're comfortable and not slipping off your feet while you move. Go for a short walk or jog around the store to see how they feel.

Types of Gym Shoes & Finding the Best Fit

Gym shoes that fit well can improve performance and reduce injuries. Find the best style for you with the help of KURU.

You can't just buy any old sneakers and expect them to suffice for your workouts. Different types of shoes are designed for various activities. Here are the most common types of shoes worn in the gym and how to find the best fit for you:

Cross-Trainers: These shoes are designed for various activities, making them a good choice if you do different types of workouts. Make sure there's enough room in the toe box and that the shoe is stable and comfortable when you walk or run.

Weightlifting Shoes: Look for a shoe with a good fit and support in the ankle and heel. These shoes have a raised heel, which helps to improve stability when lifting weights. They also have a hard sole that doesn't compress, giving you a solid foundation.

Running Shoes: If you do a lot of running on the treadmill or outside, you'll need good running shoes. They should be lightweight and have cushioning to absorb impact. Make sure they fit well and aren't too loose or too tight.

High-Top Shoes: High top gym shoes provide support around the ankle, making them a good choice for basketball or other activities that require quick movements. To find the right fit, make sure they're snug around the ankle but not too tight for comfortable movement.

"Comfortable from first try on!

Love these shoes! I didn’t need to break them in or wear them for 2-3 hours a day to get used to them. They felt perfect the moment I put them on. Which got me wanting now to buy a second pair! They are wide enough in the tow box that my toes (bunions) don’t feel cramped. Great support underneath and around too. I’ve been wearing them everyday at the gym and outside the gym as well. Love the blue grey color too."
-Happy new customer

"Real comfortable fitness sneaker

A really comfortable fitness sneaker. I received the sneakers last week and have wearing them to the gym. I have Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot which is very painful. I read the reviews about this sneaker and how it has eased the pain of Plantar Fasciitis for people that have bought this sneaker, and that is why I purchased this sneaker. What I have noticed so far is that when I come home from the gym, after wearing this sneaker, the pain in my right foot is much less than it was compared to another brand of fitness sneaker I was previously wearing to the gym. So far so good!"
