7 Shoes You Can Wear in the Gym — and Everywhere Else

If you’re making progress on your New Year’s resolution but need a little extra motivation to take it to the next level, the right pair of shoes could be just the thing you need to flourish.

To get the most bang for your buck, consider a pair of training sneakers versatile enough that you’ll be able to wear them at the gym and after the gym. Many training models emphasize function over style, and the last thing you want to do is ruin a pair of sneakers that isn’t properly equipped for your regimen. But there’s a comfortable middle ground of shoes that look just as good as they perform.
