Thanks to the brand's Trusstic System technology, these shoes offer optimal forefoot stability, which is crucial for side-to-side shuffling. They also come with a sturdy rubber sole and breathable mesh vents throughout the upper.

Pros: Gel cushioning offers a lightweight and plush feel underfoot. These come in a vibrant blue-accented or white and silver option to suit a range of wardrobes.

Cons: Some may find these run narrow in the toe box.

2. Head Grid 2.0 Shoes

These shoes deliver notable traction via a high-abrasion rubber sole.
