Need a little extra workout motivation? One thing that always works for me is some cute new workout gear. No one wants to hit the gym in an unflattering old t-shirt and beat up sneakers that give you blisters. Fashionable, functional workout gear can make a huge difference not just in motivation, but also in your performance. So let’s start with the most important part of every outfit: shoes! The Daily Quirk rounded up our favorite fashionable sneakers to help you create a cute, comfortable foundation for your next workout!
These super lightweight, flexible sneakers come in a variety of bold colors and patterns – I especially like the nordic print – and are perfect for cross training. Whether you’re a weight room junkie or a Zumba queen, these shoes have you covered!
Mizuno is known for its fabulous running shoes, and with the Wave Hayate you can get their signature high quality running shoe with a stylish twist. The bold colors and pattern of Japanese characters makes these sneakers stand out from the pack.
Whether you’re a regular at the Crossfit box or not, these striking Nanos will keep your feet looking good while you train. Designed for lateral support and stability, these shoes will help support your joints through your treadmill-free workouts.
For a sturdier running shoe with amazing stability and cushioning, you can’t go wrong with the Air Zoom. And instead of the uber bright neon explosion that has been popular in athletic shoes recently, this shoe comes in more muted colors with eye-catching dashes of color.
If you’re a competitive runner who needs a functional long-distance shoe but doesn’t want to sacrifice style, check out the 1400v2. The ultralight shoe is available in several striking color combinations, all featuring a fun pop of shine on the New Balance logo.
And if all else fails, check out Nike’s NikeiD custom shoe designs – you can pick from a wide variety of Nike’s existing styles, then customize the colors and patterns to your heart’s content! It can get a bit pricey, but it’s one surefire way to guarantee you’ll get the right shoe for both your workout needs and your personal style!
