Shopping for Weightlifting Shoes? Tips for First-Time Buyers

If you’ve always been a cardio junkie, you probably spend a lot of time on the treadmill. But adding weightlifting can make for a well-rounded routine. It can increase your body mass, improve your strength as well as general endurance and get you in the best shape of your life, says Lifehack.

Ready to start? Before you duck into the gym, make sure you chuck your sneakers and grab a pair of weightlifting shoes. Don’t have one? Easy enough to shop for a new pair. Here are a few tips for first-time shoppers like you:

Skip the cheapest option

They say buy cheap, buy twice. If you don’t want to have to go through all the trouble of buying a second pair of shoes much too soon after spending money on one, then make your first purchase count.

Don’t buy the priciest one either

You don’t have to buy the most expensive one on the lineup, though. Just go for a sensibly-priced option instead. If you decide that weightlifting’s not for you, then you wouldn’t have wasted too much money on a pair.

Pick a type

Not all weightlifting shoes are created equal. Some are loaded with nifty features but might work best for a professional or someone who’s been lifting weights and doing strength training for years. Others might be more basic, with little to no frills. Choose which type fits you the most.

Consider your level of experience

Be sure to go for shoes that are a good match for your level of experience. Start with basic models and go from there once you improve.

Always ensure fit

Have your feet measured by a pro if you aren’t certain how to do it yourself. Then send those measurements along with your order. That should help online sellers get an accurate gauge on your size and which ones will make for a perfect fit.
