Women's Studio Shoes
If you're looking to really step up your game in studio class, the first thing to do is dump those old athletic sneakers. Not only are they not helping your performance, but they're likely holding you back. That's why we've crafted our collection of women's gym trainers for the studio. Not all exercise classes are the same — so why would you wear the same pair of women's gym trainers?
What should I look for in women's gym trainers for the studio?
Full Range Support: Running shoes are designed to support forwards and backwards motion, without much lateral support. While that's fine on the treadmill, that's a bad thing for studio. Studio class requires a full range of motion, so you need women's gym trainers that allow for that. Ensure that your women's gym trainers support both linear and lateral movement, and offer a wider base for a sturdier stance.
Spin Spot: This is a fun word for a little round spot on the bottom of your women's trainer shoe's sole that allows you to pivot on the ball of your foot without straining your knee.
Secure Construction: Many women's gym trainers feature additional straps, unique tongue construction, or inner sock liners to hold your foot in place. As you move through your routine, these all keep your foot secure to minimize strain on your feet, ankles, and knees.
What are the best training shoes for women's studio classes?
The answer to that question really depends on a variety of factors. First and foremost is your class itself. Does your studio class take place on a wood floor? Reebok's Guresu 2.0's rubber outsole is designed specifically to allow you to move naturally across wood floors. If your teacher is a fan of pivots, look for women's trainer shoes with a spin spot, like Ryka's Tenacity Cross Training shoe. It also features added cushioning on the ball of your foot to reduce impact on your foot. From women's Mizuno Wave Creation to Merrell running shoes for women, your options are almost limitless.
We've hand selected the women's training shoes in our studio collection so that no matter which style you pick you can hit the studio floor with confidence.
