The 6 Best CrossFit Shoes for Women (Because Regular Sneakers Won’t Cut It)

Your regular sneaks are OK for the gym—but not for the box. Here are the best women’s CrossFit shoes for your most intense workouts.

From running and rope climbing to weight lifting and other high-intensity moves, CrossFit workouts are seriously tough, which means that any old gym shoes just won’t cut it. With a regimen that includes such a variety of movements, you need shoes that offer stability for lifting, as well as comfort and support for all the sprinting, jumping and climbing. Unlike your everyday kicks, CrossFit shoes should be specifically designed to provide all three of these at the same time. Finding the right pair, however, can be difficult. Our handy guide to the best CrossFit shoes for women can help.
