Nike Gym & Training Shoes
Matching gym shoe type to training routine makes all the difference, and the best gym shoes for each activity differs. Take advantage of signature Nike footwear technologies designed to provide stability, cushioning, durability and style, and find Nike training shoes built to help you attack your regimen.
Which Gym Shoes Are Best for You?
Best Shoes for Weight Training: The best weightlifting shoes offer supreme stability and locked-in support like the Romaleos. Wide toe boxes, durable rubber outsoles and interchangeable insoles also deliver on stability, cushioning and comfort.
Best Shoes for Strength and Cross Training: Cross training shoes should provide flexibility needed to transition from one exercise to the next without sacrificing stability, comfort, durability and performance. Versatile Nike Metcons help you power through lifts, climb ropes, push sleds and everything else in your path. Metcons provide a firm and even outsole, allowing you to squat in predictable and stable motions, ideal for the in-the-gym workout for the football or soccer player. Avoid running shoes and other models that provide too much compression, as those shoe types will contribute to destabilization and improper form.
Best Boxing Shoes: Boxing shoes in our Zoom Training collection have responsive cushioning that is perfect for drills that require quick footwork, speed, but the support you need for all your next workout or fight.
Best HIIT, Bootcamp, Circuit Training Shoes: The Free Train family (Free TR V8) provides all-natural, lightweight stability during your workout, with a flexible mesh upper with an adjustable lacing system. Perfect for workouts that include short runs, weights, and cardio drills.
How Should Gym Shoes Fit?
Best Gym Shoes for Wide Feet: If gym shoes feel too narrow at the heel or toebox, a shoe with a wide fit may be best for you. Try an extra-wide width if your foot spills over the sides and you get blisters.
Best Gym Shoes for High Arches: Training shoes that feature neutral cushioning are best for athletes with high arches. Signature cushioning technologies including Nike Zoom offer lightweight cushioning, allowing athletes with high arches to train with confidence.
Take Advantage of the Best Nike Footwear Technology
Nike Free training shoes provide flexible and responsive cushioning, with deep grooves built into the outsole that stretch and expand with every movement of the foot.

Metcon shoes provide cross trainers and dedicated weightlifters with a strong, stable base, flexible support and trusted durability designed to attack all types of physical challenges, from squats to sprints to rope climbs.
