If your workout routine involves dangling off of mountains, training for Iron Man, and/or signing a waiver, look away, because this is not the exercise shoe roundup for you. For the rest of us fitness-conscious-but-not-fitness-crazed folks, finding a gym shoe that actually inspires you to put them on is a feat much harder than staying conscious during that part of your spinning class. But, it seems like brands are wising up to our need for a pretty sneaker, and both fashion designers and big sports brands are making trainers that serve up style as well as performance.
