If you’re in the market for new athletic shoes here’s how to tell whether you should be buying straight running shoes or if you’d be better off with cross-trainers.
Opt for running shoes if: You plan to walk or jog 95 percent of the time. (And choose running shoes over “walking” shoes because they are built to last longer and fit a variety of foot types.)
Opt for cross-trainers if: Your workout routine involves aerobics, weight training, or group classes like kickboxing. If you’re moving side-to-side at all, get cross-trainers.
