Shoes that fit like a glove? Yes, please. The memory sole insert is supremely comfy. Tire flips and rope climbs are no match for these shoes.

This shoe has heal and arch support and lateral stability, making it great for weight training and strength training. Plus, the rubber outsole helps with traction and the flex grooves provide extra flexibility.

This super lightweight shoe is also super responsive, and the sticky rubber outsole comes in handy for rope climbs and such.


York Athletics The Frank


These shoes will help you kick some serious booty during any workout -- and look good while doing it. The mesh allows for ventilation, the leather cage makes for safe lateral movements and the slipper-like fit is oh-so-comfortable.
