The Best Fitness Shoes of 2023
It’s important to have the right footwear in order to start your new fitness journey.
There are plenty of innovative, premium shoes on the market that will help you achieve your goals, whether it’s a new PR in the gym or completing a marathon.
We have compiled a list of our favorite silhouettes, so that you can find the proper training kicks. Let’s get to work and lace up.
Nike Metcon 8
The reworked upper of this top training shoe improves durability over previous versions, and the Nike React foam is great for massive gains.
A wider toe box allows your toes to splay more naturally, perfect for finding that premium footing on the squat rack or platform.
Hoka Carbon X 3
The sock-like performance knit upper gives this runner its comfortable feel, while the Super Critical Foam midsole gives it springy and responsive carbon fiber plate.
Inov-8 Roclite Ultra G 320
While still providing a comfortable bounce, the all-new winter running shoe has Graphene in both the rubber and foam to help improve energy return by 25 percent.
Brooks Ghost 15
The updates to the latest Ghost iteration, particularly the DNA Loft v2 foam midsole that gives each step some added rigidity, we admire.
Hoka Tecton X
These runners are lightweight, innovative, and great for trail runs. A split carbon plate design provides plenty of pop and energy return in each quickened stride, making it an industry first.
