With the beginning of a new fall season, it’s time to lace up your favorite fitness footwear and kickstart a new routine designed to move your body, increase your energy and help you keep up with the crazy pace of back-to-school-madness. Whether you are looking to try a new workout – or just looking forward to re-starting your go-to fitness routine now that the lazy days of summer are winding down – chances are, your kicks could use a refresh.

Here are my Top 5 Fitness Footwear favorites:

Adidas – UltraBoost
This is my absolute go-to shoe…great for running, interval training, bootcamps, etc. So comfortable – with lots of cushioning in the heel, you feel like you are walking on a cloud.

York Athletics Mfg. – The Frank
Made by a local Boston-based sneaker company, this shoe looks so cool and is great for interval training and group fitness classes. Good support throughout the shoe – it’s an awesome cross trainer.

New Balance – Fresh Foam Cruz
I’ve been wearing this shoe a lot more lately – it’s so comfy, lightweight and great for interval training. Whether you lift, sprint, or do burpees, etc…this shoe is perfect for it all. Plus it’s under $100, which is a bonus.

Nike – Free RN Flyknit
If you like to feel like you are running barefoot, this is a great pick! It’s my lightest sneaker I own, and I typically pull them out during the warmer months of the year. These are great running sneakers, but I wouldn’t use them in bootcamps or for interval training.

NOBULL – Trainer
For a sweaty weight training session or cross-fit inspired workout, this sneaker is my favorite. Supportive and they provide a neutral footbed for lifting weights- plus comfortable too…win-win!
