My husband thinks my shoe collection is out of control. I admit that it is, but I fail to see the problem. I am woman, after all, and I love shoes. When I was working in advertising, I would make frequent trips to TJ Maxx to check out the Size 7 rack. You know, just in case they got the perfect shoe in that day. I still have some of those perfect shoes in my closet, most of which are high heels. But these days, they collect more dust than compliments as I am always in athletic shoes. And admittedly, I have more than one pair of athletic shoes—translation, my shoe collection is out of control.
Just try and stop me from adding to it, though. When FitFluential offered up the chance to review the Puma Formlite XL Ultra athletic shoe, well...my hand shot in the air so fast the air didn't even know what hit it. C'mon, now. The more the merrier. And the brighter the better, which is why I liked what I saw when I slid open the box
Let's pause and reflect on the box itself for a second:
Why are they so comfortable? They're extremely light and flexible. Everything you want in a training shoe, really. Check out the bottom:
The top part of the shoe is great, too. Very light and sock-like.
But, you know, I'm pretty good at justifying any shoe purchase.
Speaking of strength training. Yesterday, I talked about wall sits and the impending 3:30 wall sit in today's HIIT class. Verdict: Great success. I'm so proud of my students. If you want to get in on the action, you can pin this for your next workout:
Question: What kind of shoes do you wear when you're strength training? Do you buy specific shoes for each of the physical activities you participate in, or do you rock one pair no matter what?
