3. Decathlon | Shoes
How do you know if you’re picking the right shoe for you? We suggest this EVA foam sole shoe from Decathlon – ideal for a 30-min run.

Pointers for choosing the shoe to fit your exercise needs:

Weight lifting: firm, flat grip sole
The flat sole ensures proper form and the flat grip helps the shoe not to slip out of position as you lift the heavy weights

Gym classes: cushioned, supportive sole
Because of all the movement, jumping around and bouncing off the spinning machines, you need a shoe that offers optimal movement, cushioning, grip and support. This means that you need to look for a pair with arch and ankle support while still providing a wide toe box for optimal movement.

Running: supportive sole
If you love putting the time in on the treadmill, invest in a pair of running shoes. You can also look at getting a shoe that supports the way you run; overpronators, for example, need shoes that keep their feet from rolling inward while they run.
