This is a bona fide cool-kid sneaker. The designs are trendy but not annoyingly so, and it has an outsole that’s just stiff enough but also grippy as ever for your sprints, rope climbs, box jumps, jerks, and more. These have a more anatomical toe box than a regular sneaker and less padding, so you feel where your power is coming from on every rep. The upper is stiffer, but that’s to protect you from errant barbells and landings—and to last longer than the competition, which it will.
A fantastic shoe for strength training, plyometrics, and everything else your mind is set on accomplishing. (From $129, nobullproject.com)
