    Training shoes?

    I have New Balance MX1007 in navy and they are really cool. However, in the past 5 months, I've developed some nasty tendonitis and I'm convinced its from these damn shoes since they're really the only thing I've changed since I started getting pain in my leg.

    Please recommend good cross-trainers less than $150 that are suitable for lifting. Thanks!

    i just bought a pair of shox nz... we'll see how good they are for lifting. I have some newbies right now, but have aftermarket insoles in them, since the stock cardboard ones crapped out the first month i had them.

    Chuck Taylors and Asics Tigers have never given me any problems.

    Get some indoor soccer shoes. They are perfect for lifting with their thin hard sole.

    Running shoes are really the worst possible shoe for lifting. Little lateral support, squishy cushioning. No good at all.

    I swear by Adidas Trail running shoes. They're not like road running shoes in that they have more support around the ankle imo. Also, they're the last 3 pairs of shoes I've owned and I can't kill them, no matter what I run them through. Also, I remember once I put one of those half insole cushions in my shoe, one that goes from the heel to maybe half an inch from the balls of your feet. I got the worst feet pain that I've ever had from those. Maybe your insoles are the problem. Just a thought.

    Lastly, I get mine for between $65-$80.

    nothing has been better for me than the original air zoom vick's. great support in the ankles and nice wide base good for squatting and deadlifting.

    I use Nike shox, most comfortable shoe ive ever owned. That being said, they do suck for squatting, they are too squishy and not supportive enough laterally.

    I like to use my wrestling shoes for when I do stuff like squats and DLs. I got 'em sitting around anyways and they are nice and flat with good ankle support.
