    Cross-training shoes

    I run ~15-20 miles a week (a couple days a week are long runs--lots of stress on my knees) on top of lifting, want some shoes that are light/supportive enough to run but substantial enough to not feel like I'm barefoot when I'm in the gym. Anyone have experience with Reebok Zig? I'm looking at these:

    No amount of performance enhancement is worth the embarrassment from wearing those vile things on your feet.

    Go to a running store and get fitted if you want legit shoes that are meant to make your running ideal.



    Just choose a random pair that looks cool if all you care about is looks.

    Depends how fancy you want to get with heel inserts and whatnot but its probably 90-130 bucks.

    cross training shoes are the biggest waste of money.

    get a proper running shoe for running, lift in chucks or oly lifting shoes.

    I was looking for something to get me through the same exact situations OP- new lifting shoe as well as running shoe for 2-5 miles a day. Considered those atrocities for a second, but kept shopping. Tried on all the latest "cool" shoes and running shoes. In the end I went with the Reebok Smoothflex Cush run. Name is a bit but it's for heel hitters, which I am, and provides a nice cushion when you're running, while being very light but obviously supportive as well. In the gym it doesn't feel barefoot at all. Liked them way better than all the Nike Frees and Lunars and other companies' attempts.

    They are also slightly less expensive. The only thing "wrong" with them is that since they're not an actual running shoe, any run that's >5 miles or so you should have a dedicated running shoe for, but these are great for the shorter runs and the gym.

    Basically all my dedicated running shoes are fitted for my feet and have custom soles for me, but really you don't need those unless you're going to be running 5+ miles at a time consistently. For shorter runs a "crossfit" shoe, or brand name (Nike/Reebok/Adidas) shoe works fine. Hell, even when I ran in my marathon I didn't wear my running shoes because I didn't get them shipped to where I moved yet and my feet were fine.
