    Promising review: "The Metcons are the first pair of shoes I've purchased specifically for strength training/HIIT and I'm super impressed so far! I can definitely tell a difference that they have a lower profile from heel to toe compared with my running shoes. They're lightweight but snug and don't let my feel slide around. Good grip on the bottom. I've done about a week's worth of higher-intensity exercising and have enjoyed every workout with them!" —Nike Customer

    Get them from Nike for $96.97+ (available in sizes 5–15 and seven colors).

    Promising review: "Beyond the style & color (soft gold is lovely) it's a well thought out fit: there's a bit of width and height in the toe area so the shoe doesn't pinch; ankle strap adds extra stability. The high top feature is comfortable and doesn't cut into the ankle. Also, my instructor mentioned there's a design on the sole that helps with glides and turns so one doesn't turn over on the ankle. Who knew? Can't wait to try out in my dance class!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $57.37+ (available in sizes 5–13 and 31 colors).

    3. Running sneakers for high-impact living room workouts: You'll get amazing traction and comfort while you do a bodyweight or cardio circuit.

    Promising review: "These are my first ever pair of Reebok Nanos and they have been amazing for my workouts in my garage. My garage floor is a bit slippery and the grip/tread is perfect! The toe box is sturdy and fits just as expected for all 'HIIT/Functional Fitness/Weightlifting/CrossFit' style workouts. I am a true believer in these shoes. Well worth the price IMO as I’ve worn other sneakers that just didn’t help during workouts that require a lot of foot shuffling and quick burst movements. These shoes offer support and stability. Great buy!" —Jasmine

    Promising review: "I like this sports running shoe because it is super light and breathable. It is suitable for all kinds of sports and gives me a comfortable feeling of movement. One of the features is that the sole is made especially of a non-slip pattern that create sufficient friction with the ground to prevent slipping and injury during exercise, another feature is a special bumper toe that protects your toes and gives you a comfortable wearing experience." —tony H
