Best CrossFit Shoes: A Guide to Choosing the Right Pair for Your Workouts

Picking the Best Shoes for CrossFit Workouts

Will my current footwear work for CrossFit?


Xero Shoes

Why we recommend this brand: 

If you are specifically looking for a minimalist, zero drop shoe, we found some of their styles to be very CrossFit friendly (Prios, 360, Forza Trainer) - wider heel base helpful for stability in movements such as squats & deadlifts, but also light and flexible enough to use for jumping and running. Note: This link is just an affiliate link where we get a kick-back, it's not a discount link since they don't do discounts on their shoes often at all.

Inov-8

Why we recommend this brand: 

This brand also caters more to minimalist footwear, with a wider toe box. We find that this brand works well if you have narrower feet & higher arches whereas the Xero shoes work with wider feet and flatter arches.

Less Minimalist Brands:

These are other brands of shoes that tend to have more arch support or a thicker sole (to absorb some impact on jumping movements) we would also recommend for CrossFit:

TYR CXT-1 Trainer

Nike Metcon

Reebok Nanos

NoBull Trainers

Strike MVMT

RAD One

Vans Ultrarange EXO

More Minimalist Brands:

These shoes tend to have a more zero-drop or barefoot feel with thinner sole and less foot & arch support.
