Lifestyle sneakers work great for curling, as long as they feature flat soles to keep you level. Even some Olympic curlers wear them for the sport. But these shouldn’t be your everyday kicks; you’ll want to devote a pair solely for the ice so it stays clean, as debris can affect how stones travel on the ice. It should be noted that you’ll need to purchase a slider made of Teflon that attaches to shoes so you can easily slide while throwing or sweeping. That said, we rounded up some of the most comfortable, flat-soled sneakers for women that work well for curling practice. Ahead, shop our picks from Adidas, Puma and more.
