Top 10 CrossFit ShoesTop 10 CrossFit ShoesPuma Speed Cats Review by KS: I’ve bought these shoes three times in a row, I always get the black ones. The design is good and look very sporty. They are very low shoes. These are NOT running shoes and they are shoes you don’t want to walk in for more than six hours. The bottom of the Puma Speed CatsTop 10 CrossFit Shoes are thinner than converse chucks shoes. You can’t fit any inserts into these shoes. These shoes are not recommended if you have flat feet.

One run in these and my shins didn’t hurt at all. None. I almost teared up from the lack of pain. My calves were sore for about 3 weeks due to these shoes changing the way I run. Not painful, just sore. I’ve noticed that I am faster in theVibram FiveFingers BikilaTop 10 CrossFit Shoes. I don’t have a big stride anymore but lots of short steps that have cut 2 minutes off my 4 mile run time.

Top 10 CrossFit ShoesTop 10 CrossFit ShoesAdidas Samba Review by Kime: What is there to say about these shoes besides the fact that they’re very comfortable, feel great (redundancy), and look good? Not much, I guess. What else do you say about shoes? Did I mention that the Adidas SambaTop 10 CrossFit Shoes feel great on the feet, as they would feel anywhere else? Seriously, buy a pair if you’re into that whole wearing-shoes thing. $40 or so for a great pair of shoes, very good deal.

Top 10 CrossFit ShoesTop 10 CrossFit ShoesVibram FiveFingers KomodoSport Review – I have run in the Vibram FiveFingers Komodosport Top 10 CrossFit Shoes fairly regularly and despite what some say, even after 3 or 4 months of running in them I still haven’t gotten used to them completely. I still end up with sore feet or leg muscles about half of the time and the first 1/2 mile of the run I notice the lack of cushion on the bottom of my feet.

Top 10 CrossFit ShoesTop 10 CrossFit ShoesReebok CrossFit Nano Review – The Reebok CrossFit Nano 3.0Top 10 CrossFit Shoes are a minimalist style, zero-drop shoe, designed specifically to meet the needs of Crossfit athletes. Frankly that is a hard task to take on given the very nature of Crossfit and its notorious variation of exercises.

Top 10 CrossFit ShoesTop 10 CrossFit ShoesInov-8 F-Lite 230 Review – Great shoe, I read a lot of reviews about it and lots of people complained about the shoe being narrow and to get a size larger…DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM! I got an 11.5 and I always fit that size, it was half a size too big, I spoke to another guy who has them and he said the same thing; that he wished he had got half a size smaller. They are great shoes, for trail running, for in the gym, or just walking around.

The Inov-8 F-Lite 195Top 10 CrossFit Shoes has a low back where the heel sits means that there is no chance of abrasion on the achilles tendon and the laces accomodate my fairly-wide just fine. I run on trails and the road using a natural running method (POSE, Chi, Evolution) and this shoe is the best compromise between being barefoot and having something to protect your feet in the real-world.

These are great shoes. Definitely my go-to shoes for just kicking back on the weekends. Very little arch support, the Onitsuka Tiger Ultimate 81Top 10 CrossFit Shoes are very low to the ground, but that is something i was looking for in these.
