As many of you know we require shoes for doing Unit 2 CrossFit. What many do not know is what shoes are best for doing CrossFit.
We believe that the best shoes for doing CrossFit are flat minimalist shoes. A minimalist shoe is one that is light, flat, thin, flexible and give a wide toe to enable free motion of the toes. Excessive padding in shoes can actually cause knee pain and reduce stability while lifting. Below is a short list of shoes that will get you though any Workout of the Day we might throw at you.
- Vibram Five Fingers
- Inov-8 f-lite series
- Merrell Barefoot
- New Balance Minimus
- Chuck Taylor All Star (my personal favorite based on $$$)
