Crossfit shoe advice

Post by NRE1212 on 3/6/2013, 9:21 am

I have been shopping around and see there are many different shoes and MANY different prices. Is there a certain show that anyone would recommend? A personal issue I have is weak ankles and the shoes I have now,nike free run, have little to no structure in the ankle area.

Any suggestions?

Hey NRE (what's your real name?),

Personally I like the Reebok Nanos for crossfit training, so maybe you can try those on at Sports Chalet to see if you like them. But they still don't have a ton of structure for the ankle, and I actually wouldn't suggest getting a shoe that does as they will also limit your ankle mobility. Restricting your ankle mobility can cause some other issues over time, so ideally we don't want to do that if we can help it.

I'd like you to work on doing some exercises to help build strength in your ankles. There are tons of very simple ankle strength and stability exercises that you can find online or by asking a coach. If you happen to live close to the beach, going on daily or weekly walks on the soft sand works great.

Thanks Colin!


I'm Natalie. I will look in to those shoes. I was leaning towards them but wasnt sure.

I will also look in to the ankle exercises so it doesnt become a bigger issue Smile

thanks for your help!

Natalie, I totally agree with Colin on this. I have pretty bad ankles as well; when I started CrossFit, I wore an ankle brace on my left ankle. I would definitely suggest working on developing better ankle mobility and increasing strength through that new range of motion. Next time I see you, grab me, and I will show you some good exercises to do. Also, the Nanos are great. They are very stable, but will not restrict your mobility in any detrimental way.
