Mama Needs A New Pair of Shoes
(side note: it is occurring to me that I have never titled a post here with anything less than some super obnoxious one liner. I’m not suggesting I’m going to stop doing that, I’m just commenting on it. Carry on)
So, question: What shoes do y’all crossfit in?
On the one hand: I want flat non-running shoes for Olympic lifting and other stablizing stuff.
On the other hand: There s a lot of running in some workouts, and I like having non-Samba/Chuck Taylors to use for those.
I know a lot of people LOVE their Vibrams for this, but I since I’ve never had gait problems with long distance running, I have never felt the need to change up my running shoes for Vibrams, and never really wanted to buy them exclusively for CF. Also, there’s a small part of me that feels like you can only really go all-in on so many douchy fads at once, and my one-two punch of Crossfit + Paleo might not leave room for barefoot running as well. (I’m kidding. Kind of.)
Anyway! I currently use Nike Frees and kick them off for focused lifting work, but before I purchased my next pair, I wanted to hear for you about what you wear. And feel free to try to convince me I’ll love Vibrams — today’s “annoying fad” is tomorrow’s “lifesaving must have”, right?
