New year, healthier you, right? Exercise is undeniably the most popular choice for people to tackle when they need to make a change. It can be difficult to maintain this commitment in the thick of the snow, hail and high winds that make us just want to sit at home and binge-watch Netflix.
To avoid this, we’ve rounded up five kicks that’ll make you excited to get your session in. We factored in form, traction, appeal and overall performance when choosing kicks that will help keep you motivated this season. Pick up your gym bags and read on to find out what kicks you should be wearing to work out.
adidas’ AlphaBOUNCE silhouette is the shoe that was made with women in mind. The foam sole runner is not only comfortable but can withstand strength and endurance activities with little strain to the feet. This blush pink colorway is the first pastel to cover the sneaker and it was worth the wait. Those who enjoy training and light cardio should check out the $110 USD pair.
adidas UltraBOOST 4.0 “Triple White” is the color of fresh snow. Its sock-like upper is breathable but doesn’t allow for the elements to ruin your work flow. Ladies can cross train in this pair transitioning from the gym to the court with no problem. Maximalists will enjoy the “Multi-Color” option but the cold season calls for a more minimal profile. Snag a pair in your size from KITH where it retails for $180 USD.
The Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer has made a strong comeback. The performance running shoe has a flexible body that moves with the foot to allow the maximum amount of range. The best feature about this shoe is that its appearance is casual enough for ladies to pull it off as a daytime and workout footwear, killing two birds with one stone. Try out these $165 USD Nike kicks now and let us know how it goes.
The Muse X Strap fuses style and structure to create a solid workout shoe that doesn’t skimp on the glamour. This silhouette has a satin-like finish but also boasts crossover straps and a rugged sole for sturdiness. The pointed toe box adds a dainty detail to the PUMA trainer. For those who enjoy both form and function, cop the sleek runner that is currently retailing for $80 USD.
P.E Nation and Reebok collaborated to take the Classic Nylon to the next level. The sportswear label boosted the colorway of the form adding bright orange and blue tones to the hybrid sneaker. Ladies can perform a range of movements without overly fatiguing their legs. This collaborative duo is currently available in black and white at P.E Nation for $80 USD each.
