Best Training Shoes For Indoor/Outdoor Workout

Do you really need training shoes for training? I think the answer is pretty obvious of course you do need them.

The first and most important quality of training shoes in my opinion is heel height. (an ideal drop for training shoes for weightlifting is between 0-10 mm). The second most important quality is the outsole, it is very important to consider the type of surface you train and the compatibility of the outsole. So choose a good quality brand, and make sure you get the right fit.

The training shoes that I recommend for most weightlifters, and the ones that I personally own, are the Nike Flex Control 3 (Available on Amazon). Actually, any kind of Nike Flex is very comfortable for working out, here’s the new release:

Nike Flex Control TR4 Cross Trainer (Available on Amazon)

I purchased the Nike Flex Control 3 because I think it’s important to have a sole that lets your foot move naturally, but if you want to go with a heavier option, the Nike Metcon (Available on Amazon) is also a good pick.  The Nike Metcom is actually one of the best-selling training shoes.

Features of Nike Flex Control 3

  • Low-impact workouts
  • Circuit training
  • Breathable mesh
  • Upper with a supportive platform designed for flexibility and traction.

What I Like About The Nike Flex Control 3


They are a perfect fit for me, I feel pretty light running, jumping, and lifting, I think if don’t feel comfortable with your shoes, you can’t do anything, not even walking, but Nike Flex Control 3 will provide you comfort.


Honestly, I am not a big fan of Nike, I just like the training shoes that’s it, I have been wearing Nike Flex for many years, and an average life of training shoes if you really workout, is between 6 and 18 months, they are good quality, and if you just use them at the gym nothing more, they can last for some years. It’s important however to change the shoes once in a while to keep your feet healthy because the technology they provide is not the same when they are old.


You can work out at the gym, outdoor activities, CrossFit, jumps, plyometrics, some sports, even running short distances, you can trust that you are not going to get hurt because you can do pretty much any kind of activity with them.


Especially for leg day, they provide you with support and stability two of the most important features for leg workout
