You can always go to one of those sports shoes stores. Some get very technical and can recommend the perfect shoe for your type of foot. I personally use Asics gel something or other. they are very comfortable and light

Lo mejor es ir a una tienda que se dedique a articulos de ejercicios (en especial tenis shoes)
y que evaluen:
1. el tipo de pie
2. el tipo de pisada
3. tipo de workouts que vas a realizar..

Yo he tratado muchas marcas de tennis shoes..
Ahora mismo tengo unos New Balance y me han funcionado super bien...

yo tengo pie flat (overpronation) y tiendo a lastimarme con mucha facilidad...

yo tengo unos tennis shoes que solo utilizo para correr.. Stability (with Motion Control for overpronation correction)

y tengo otros regular training shoes para hacer mis workouts regulares y para uso diario.

aqui tienes una buena info de referencia:

I would recommend you look into getting 'cross training' shoes. They give you support for lateral movements which I think you'll need. They can also be used for other types of exercise. I use them for walking right now and when I took exercise classes.

They also do have lightweight, high-top shoes that are for kickboxing. You will need that ankle support/protection for the constant weight-shifting and pivoting.

Go to a good sporting goods store where you can be fitted correctly. Lots of suerte!

I have had several different brands of tenis thru out my Life and I truly feel the New Balance and Nike are my top choices.
Foot Locker has been pretty helpful for me in the past, explaining which type of tenis is good for walking,running,etc.
The right shoe is extremely important!

Thanks a million ladies for your suggestions! I think I'm going to look further into this sometime this weekend because my poor Nike's have just about had it.

Oh yea I had a friend that did that, she said that they told her what shoes to buy and I think she also ended up with men's shoes.

I had never heard that about Nike's...my thing is that I'm flat footed...but I mean pata plana to the max! So Nike's don't really have a lot of support y los gastos mas rapido porque me paso es mas pesado.

Go to a good sportshop and let them measure your feet and take a film of how you walk. Based on the outcome of both they will advise you. I did and I was surprised to have to use a male shoes but at least after that I have never had blisters o otras incomodidades. I never expected to be able to walk and run on Nikes because I was told they were for light people.....:)

I personally think Shape-Ups are good walking shoes. But I don't think you'll have good balance on the elliptical or even for jumping. My friend messed up some ligaments in her toes from running in/outdoor and the doctor recommended NB brand. Which is the brand I'm going to get next too. I have a few friends that like to hike to with their NB instead of hiking boots and these are the same shoes they hit the gym with.

The one brand I wouldn't recommend are Adidas, those didn't last long for me and I only used them for the gym.

Okay ladies, I'm looking to purchase a new pair of training shoes for the gym. I want a pair that is flexible with good stability but yet light weight if possible. I need a pair that will be comfortable enough to withstand all the jumping from my TKB/boot camp & shadow boxing classes but yet be comfortable enough if I were to just get on the elliptical.

Any suggestions?
