Crossfit is a great workout for almost every inch of your body, but with so many people moving towards it from other exercise regimes, it is crucial that you use the right equipment for the job. If you have injuries, weaknesses and inflexibilities from other workouts, you are going to need the right pair of shoes to tackle the challenging workouts that you are going to be doing while at the gym. Each of these injuries, inflexibilities and weaknesses differ from woman to woman and so this isn’t just a one shoe suits all situation when it comes to CrossFit, there are many different shoes and some might do more damage to you than good.
Finding the right shoes for you and your injuries might not be easy, but it is worth it.

The best CrossFit shoes for women
Reebok Nano 2.0
Stable, comfortable and great for weightlifting. The 2.0’s contour very well to the foot, the only cons of this shoe are that they are not as protective as some of the others on this list and they have a wider toe box.
Reebok Sprint 2.0
Great for running longer distances because they are comfortable and breathable, but they lack the support for heavy lifting tasks.
Nike Metcon 1
The Metcon’s offer great protection while lifting, they are extremely comfortable, supportive and are perhaps the most versatile shoe on the list, however, they are not great for the longer runs.
Inov-8 Lite 195
Comfortable, breathable and well suited for a variety of CrossFit tasks, but they lack the support for heavy lifting.
Reebok Nano 5.0
They are more breathable and have a narrower toe box than previous versions, however, they are not very supportive when it comes to heavy lifting and the kevlar infused mesh on the side makes them slippery for rope climbs.
We hope you have found this list of women’s CrossFit shoes helpful in your search for the best. Remember, try on a few pair to find out which suit you and your previous injuries the best, otherwise we may be seeing you in a professional capacity soon!
