What's a good cross training shoe for women. Wife wants to get a new pair (fairly flat footed.) Want to make sure we get a good shoe bc just about all shoes feel good when trying them on but I want to make sure it's a shoe that will still feel comfortable when at the gym, hiking, etc.

What kind of workouts is she doing? That can make a big difference in what shoe she gets.

I have the first edition Grids and they're sort of my everything shoes. Good traction and they're ridiculously comfortable. I use them for everything but lifting (just grabbed an old pair of converses for that).

IÈve heard good things about New Balance minimus, my boyfriend just got a pair yesterday and he loves them.

She does some light lifting and cardio. Typical gym goer. She tried the minimums and while they felt great (for the most part,) the arch on the inside of the foot is surprisingly high and she could really feel it.
