Summer is fast approaching, and if you’ve got any plans of procuring a beach bod in time for the lesser-clothed season, then now’s the time to start sculpting. We all know the saying that summer bodies are built in the winter, and while that’s true, there’s still time to get started in spring.

Hitting the gym is an activity fraught with advice and potential danger. Without the right form, you can seriously injure yourself, so having the right kit to facilitate that is essential. The most essential of all gym kit is having the right workout shoes.

Of course, your shoes will change depending on your workout. The best workout shoes to squat in will have a thin, flat sole unit so as not to raise your heel while the best gym shoes for cardio will take a more technical, cushioned build to minimize impact and therefore injury.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best workout shoes from adidas, each with a different set of skills. So whether you’re bravely hitting legs or trying to run off some unwanted winter weight, keep scrolling and get started today.

Ultraboost Made to Be Remade

In general, we'd say avoid the Ultraboost for weight training because of its ultrasoft, forgiving sole unit. The Made to Be Remade iteration of the silhouette features one of the slimmest sole units of any Ultraboost, though, so for basic weight training it will work. It goes without saying that there are few better pairs for cardio training.

Velosamba Cycling Shoes

The adidas Supernova 2 is one of the most comfortable performance runners we've tried. The Boost heel section gives major energy return while the midweight upper ensures that the design is versatile in all conditions.

The Ultraboost that started it all. You can't go wrong with the Ultraboost 1.0. It has the added luxury of being an easy design to style outside of the gym, too.

Although the 4DFWD sole lattice provides a firmer foundation than Boost, there's no way around the fact that this pair is designed for cardio.
