The Best Cross-Training Shoes

  • 361 USA

    Best Cardio Machine Sneaker

    The "nice and cushy" 361° Impulse "provides the right amount of support" for all your gym action—"running and walking on the treadmill, lifting weights or taking classes"—plus its outsole has "great traction." ($85, 361usa.com)

  • Reebok

    Best Boot Camp Shoe

    Testers loved the special side strip of the "supercomfortable" Reebok CrossFit Nano 4.0, which is meant to protect against rope burns—"makes climbs much better!"—as well as the shoe's "wide, stable base for lifting movements" and reinforced toe that "makes push-ups and burpees feel right." ($120, reebok.com)

  • Nike

    Best Circuit Training Shoe

    The signature "stretchy" knit upper on the "lightweight, flexible" Nike Flyknit Zoom Agility "feels perfect" and "snug" against your foot, and its nonslip outsole gives great support "for kicks, lateral movements and jumping." ($150, nike.com)

  • Adidas

    Best Packable Cross-Trainers

    With a notably flexible outsole that "makes it easy to move from side to side," a "comfy, well-ventilated" upper, and built-in "bounce for jumping," the Adidas AdiPure 360.2 is "the perfect workout-to-playtime shoe." ($90, adidas.com)
