Sneaker Talk


I am loving all the new bright colored sneakers that shoe companies are offering. The tough part is finding a pretty shoe that fits your needs. When we are looking for shoes in store or online we tend to first go for the look of the shoe.  Lets be serious if you think a shoe is ugly but its comfortable you will probably keep looking.

My first priority is comfort. You can tell right away when you put on a pair of shoes if it fits like a glove or if something is off. Remember every foot is different. What works for me might not work for you. If you are looking for a running shoe and your foot has room on the sides then you should try out some new options.

I find that Nike tends to run wider and as much as I love their style I usually end up having some foot discomfort after a couple of weeks. Adidas shoes fit me a little better since my foot is narrow and there shoes are for the most part not too wide.  Below are two shoes I am currently wearing that I really like!

REEBOK SubLite Train 1.0

I just recently received the new Reebok SubLite Train 1.0 sneakers. They are very comfortable and great for circuit training or every day gym use. They also make them in men’s sizes, you can check it out on their website.


I love the color selection of these shoes, they have about 10 different fun color options! These sneakers are great for indoor circuit training workouts. I have a narrow foot and there is a little extra room at the front of the foot so I wouldn’t use these for agility training or lateral quick movements but they are great for strength training and doing indoor cardio.





Zappos- Asics

I ordered these sneakers from zappos a few months ago. You can click on the link and it will bring you to the website. I found these sneakers to be SUPER comfortable. I can wear them at work for hours and my feet don’t hurt. As far as my training with these shoes, I mostly do indoor circuit style training. I do not run in these shoes, but they are great for my boot camp workouts. An added plus is the colors and they are extremely light. I think they are comparable to the nike free.

I am definitely going to order another pair in a different color because they have definitely held up well.

What is your favorite sneaker brand and why?
