What is the proper footwear for SpeedX classes?

While there is no shoe that is ideal for every athletic program, the best shoe for most SpeedX classes are any flat soled shoes with minimal cushioning. There are a wide range of brands that now make what are called “minimal” shoes, including Reebok, New Balance, and Inov8. The Converse All-Star is always a good choice as well.

We recommend against wearing running shoes, or any shoes with an angle in the sole and heavy cushioning around the foot.

In both Krav Maga and SpeedX, you will may be handling weights, doing lots of lateral agility movements, and high torque turns. Angled and cushioned shoes do not provide the stability needed to perform these movements and may lead to ankle and knee injury.
