Not all athletic footwear is created equal. For instance: a pair of elite marathon shoes might be great for running, but certainly lack the stability and structure of a formal “gym” shoe. It can be difficult to know which shoe will work best for your chosen activity, and if one of those activities is lifting, things get even more challenging.

Enter the Reebok Nano X1. The shoe, originally designed with HIIT training in mind, can do it all, and it’s widely regarded as one of the best all-around trainers; designed with Flexweave knit and Floatride Energy Foam, the kick is the optimal combo of stable, flexible, light and responsive — kind of like a footwear version of our favorite running pants. All and all, it makes for a great gym sesh, whether you’re hitting the squat rack, the treadmill or the battle ropes.

Right now, the Nano X1 is on sale for nearly 50 bucks off in a variety of different color ways at Reebok. If you’re looking to crush some spring workouts and keep that bod taut for summer, there’s really no better option.
