Best trainers for CrossFit

Hi all!

I was going to the gym and attending some of their extra BootCamp classes last year but have been looking into a local CrossFit group which I've been told will be a completely different workout to what I have been doing and to buy some good trainers. Good trainers? Are there any recommendations on what trainers are best to wear for CrossFit classes?

Thank you!

For crossfit, anything that doesn't have too much of an air sole is ideal - just like with all olympic weight lifting. If you imagine doing deadlifts whilst wearing trainers with heavy padding in the heel, your first movement is your heels going into the shoe which can cause instability and can place risk of injury.

As mentioned, reebok have made their own model that is designed to allow for both lifting and running, as a typical weight lifting shoe is not suitable for running in.

A lot of crossfitters just wear converse.
