When it comes to my workouts, I never skimp on my gear. In fact, I take pride in the portion of my closet I reserve for my favorite products. As I’ve progressed in my training, I’ve also learned the importance of owning separate recovery gear — aka the sports bras, leggings, and tanks I’ve designated for my recovery days. For me, having products designed and reserved for my lighter days allows me to save my high-performance gear for only the most intense of my workouts.
But when it comes to shoes, I can’t say I’m as well-equipped. Sure, I have sneakers upon sneakers for HIIT class, weights, and running. But performance-quality shoes for my stretching, yoga, swimming, and recovery walks? Not so much. Because recovery days are just as important as working days, I’m vowing to invest in some recovery-ready shoes that still provide the support and comfort of my favorite workout shoes.
These seven pairs from Under Armour are all ideal for post-workout recovery wear thanks to their comfort fit, cushioned support, and high-quality design. Take a peek at the slides, sandals, and sneakers I’m eyeing for post-gym wear and beyond.
