Asics Conviction X 2
The second generation of Asics' cross training shoe was released this spring. With a higher-cut upper than many other training shoes on the market and an all-black color scheme, these provide a slightly different look fashion-wise. A tried-and-true training style, these have a stiff heel and solid platform, making them a good alternative for those who don't want to invest in a separate pair of weightlifting shoes.

Best for: When you want a training shoe that does it all and prefer a minimalist look.
