shoes for exercising

Postby Kim » Wed Jun 28, 2006 10:57 pm

Hi all,

I'm going to start working out at the gym and need to get tennis shoes for my workouts. Any suggestions on any particular type or brand?

I don't have a great deal of swelling in my feet but enough to make it a little difficult in buying shoes, plus the toe wraps that I wear under my compression garment adds more bulk in the toe area.

When wearing my compression garment, I always wear Crocs which are so comfortable but won't work for exercising.

Any suggestions would be great!!

Kim :)

Hi Kim

I have no idea unless a mens pair they are usually wider

I know in childrens they are wearing the surfing shoes they stretch

but how good they would be for the gym?

I used to get trainers 2 or three sizes to big but they would dig into the deep crease i have around the ankle caused me many problems

Sorry not to be more helpful
