Shoe Review: ASICS Gel-Fit Sana

As part of my spring marathon training, I have committed to more strength training.  I've had far too many injuries in the past couple of years due to lack of strength training.  I would rather not repeat those silly mistakes.  

I've tried strength training before.  Weights at the gym, PiYo, T25, various pinterest workouts.  All have been fantastic.  But I was lacking one very important piece of equipment - shoes.  My cushy running shoes are not appropriate for mountain climbers, lunges, planks.  They just slip around and make the workout awkward.  I needed something for my feet, that would keep my feet from slipping.  Something that would hug my awful bunions and give my feet the freedom they need in uppers.  

Now, I must ask myself.  Why in the world didn't I have cross training shoes before?  Seriously?  I have trail shoes, long distance, racing, everyday trainers - but cross training?  None.  Problem solved.  I have filled my void.  Phew.  

That is why the ASICS Gel-Fit Sana is the PERFECT shoe for my strength training.  There is zero slipping in these shoes.  They fit my feet like a glove.  There is just enough cushion and support for low impact exercising.  They even have the best sock liner so I don't have to wear socks with them.  I have not experienced any blisters or awful rubbing with them at all.  

In addition to my workouts, I have been wearing them all over town, running errands.  They are adorable.   I do love matching my tops to my shoes...and the pink/purple color way is perfect for my wardrobe.  I would highly recommend the ASICS Gel-Fit Sana to anyone looking for a great strength training/cross training kind of shoe.
