Over the past year or so, I’ve come to have a pretty amazing collection of shoes (Thank you Finish Line!). I’m not talking about stilettos, pumps, in da club…I’m specifically talking about athletic shoes. I pretty much have something to match every kind of top and bottom combination in my closet…pink, blue, green, black, patterned. I don’t feel bad about it at all. Most women have a mega collection of heels, flats, wedges, boots, etc. I however, have a very focused collection of shoes because it just makes sense for my lifestyle. For me, comfort is the number one thing I look for in a shoe and I am the most comfortable in a gym shoe. Plus- 90% of the time I am wearing some sort of activewear, whether I’m in the gym or just doing my day to day thang.
I am excited to be one of the first people to test out Adidas’s new Pure Boost X Running Shoes! I had them on the other day when my brother was over for dinner and he was SUPER JEALOUS ;) Talk about a good looking shoe…and comfy too! It’s one of those shoes that’s so cool looking that I don’t want to wear them out at the gym :P I’ve actually never seen anything like it. The center of the shoe is detached from the sole with a dynamic foot arch, which pretty much molds to your foot. They’re lightweight, which I am a HUGE fan of and have a super comfortable sole.
Clearly I’m down to wear these guys on the street, but I’m also comfortable enough strapping them on for a run or for strength training in the gym. They are meant for running after all, but I’m all about a dual-purpose shoe.
I wrote up a workout inspired by the versatility of these bad boys. Lately I have been a HUGE FAN of mixing up my workouts by combining sprint circuits with strength circuits. I’d much rather jump on the treadmill, run for a bit, jump off, squat for a bit, back on the treadmill…etc.
Combine two minute treadmill sprints with a strength training circuit for the ultimate full body sprint and strength workout!
