My familiarity with exercise footwear is limited to my running shoes. What should I be looking for in a gym shoe?
I've started an interval workout class and I'm excited to restart a weightlifting program. Thanks, Health Month
! However, I'm realizing that my Saucony Grid Omnis, so perfectly suited to me for running, are pretty awful as a general gym shoe.
1. Do I need two more pairs of shoes? It is totally okay if the answer here is yes, but I would like to know why.
2. Where should I go to try such shoes on and possibly get some advice from a knowledgeable salesperson? The Running Room appears to only sell running shoes.
3. Specific brand and model recommendations to try?
Relevant details: female, 5'3" and 150-155 lbs, located in suburban Vancouver.
