As part of my ambassadorship with Fitfluential, I recently got to try out the new Asics Gel-Fit Sana shoes. I was immediately drawn to this shoe because the last five (?) pairs of shoes that I’ve reviewed have been RUNNING shoes. The Gel-Fit Sana is different – it’s meant for cross-training, not running. Specifically, they’re PERFECT for lateral movements and jumping movements. What do you think we do in Trackstars the most??? We sprint, we jump, we pivot. A lot of my training is speed and agility in the gymnasium so I was excited to see how the Gel-Fit Sana performed. I love my running shoes but sometimes my toes slide around when we perform drills or they feel loose around the ankle when I’m changing direction.
To test out the shoe, I’ve been wearing them for the last week or so at Trackstars and on a couple of walks….oh and we obviously went down to the track and played around for this photoshoot (Travis had a little too much fun with that camera and I had too much fun jumping on around). Here’s what I love best about the Asics Gel-Fit Sana:
- They are VERY lightweight. I like that my feet feel “springy” and not bogged down by heavy shoes.
- The fit is snug, almost like a water shoe. I was telling Travis that these shoes feel like “foot gloves.” They just move WITH your feet instead of wearing something ON your feet.
- They’re just pretty! Yes, I’ll admit it – the color and style of shoes make a difference when I’m purchasing. I love the blue and aqua colors and the lacing up the side!
Since the majority of my training these days would be described as speed and agility (I do throw strength training, balance and flexibility training in to every workout, but Trackstars is extremely agility-focused), the Asics Gel-Fit Sana really is the perfect addition.
Big thanks to Asics and Fitfluential for allowing me to review the shoe! I encourage you to get your own pair here!
QUESTION: What type of shoe do you train in? What type of training do you primarily focus on?
