The shoes you train in matter for both form and pelvic health. You want to make sure they are bendable, have a wide toe box, and very minimal (to no) heel drop. These are my Strong Like A Mother training shoes faves!

    WHITIN Women's Minimalist Barefoot Shoes
These are LEGIT COMFY. Honestly, these might be the best shoes I’ve ever owned. I feel like these are the perfect minimalist gateway shoe. They are a little bit more padded than totally barefoot shoes, have a great toe box and they look really stylish.

Altra Women's Solstice
These are a bit more pricey and the shipping is extra, but they are so stylish and come in a variety of styles. Stylish enough to wear with jeans or a dress, but practical enough you can wear them to train.

Feel Grounds Original Knit
These are on super sale right now. These have long been my go-to shoe for the past few years. These are more minimalist than the other shoes, meaning that they aren’t very padded. The toe box is nice and wide, and the material makes them super breathable.

Feel Grounds Courtside
Looking for something you can lift in and also take out for a run? Then these are you shoes. These are a little more supportive and padded than a barefoot shoe, but still minimalist enough that you can connect with the ground. Also, they have a great toe box for toes to splay and they are super light and breathable.
