Turbo Fire Shoes??!?!
8/4/10 8:37 AM
Hi
What are the best most supportive shoes for Turbo Fire. Someone told me, Nike Shox but there are so many different kinds. I want to order some online. Please let me know what you all are using. I am on week 5 of turbo fire, lost 10lbs and LOVING IT!
Thanks All! emoticonemoticon<3

any shoe that is made for cross training is what you need. Don't get sprinting shox, because you will twist your ankles. Also to get the most out of your shoe you have to buy them for YOUR feet. So it depends on your arches and if you pronate or supinate or if your normal. I think nike has a guide on their website that you can use. Hope this helps

I always went barefoot when I did the turbojam. However, I have found that my soles burn (from all that jumping on carpet) with the turbofire so I use the Vibram Fivefingers. Like barefoot but with a little something extra to keep the "fire" away from my feet. Love, love, love my vibrams...wear them for just about everything.

Hello! As a former marathon runner (4years previous prior to a knee injury) I have always been big about shoes. Now I like whatever will serve best. I actually like the fitness shoes---you can buy the fancy ones in sketcher/nike etc for >$100, but I but the champion brand at payless for $40....I really like them. The sole is rounded (the idea behind the fitness shoe) which works perfect for me because it is easier for be to push of my toes and remain more on my forefoot.

It makes a huge difference...previously I was using walking shoes but I am too clumsy and cannot tell when my left foot hits the ground and was always tripping over my left foot until these shoes. wonderful!

It's great, I have more problems wearing shoes than not wearing them, no matter what workout I'm doing. (I'm a infomercial junkie so I've done A LOT! lol)

I usually workout in my socks on carpet. My arches would cramp up no matter what shoes I'd wear. I've had no problem going from Turbo Jam to Turbo Fire in my socks, though I'm still doing things a little more low-impact. How are the Vibram's as far as pivoting (on carpet)? I see they have a rubber sole, so I'm a little concerned.

I was having a lot of trouble finding a pair of shoes I liked to do turbo fire in. I must have tried every pair of sneakers that were lying around my house and I tried barefoot, which didn't work out too well for me.
The shoes that I got recently that i've really been liking for turbo are nike dance/cheerleading shoes. They have this spot on the bottom of the shoe at the front of the foot that helps you pivot, which is really nice because I usually do turbo on carpet.

It has been so much easier to do the dvds since I got these shoes. I don't have any problems pivoting my feet anymore, which was causing me some pain in my feet/legs. I don't know if they are the right shoe for you, but they worked out really well for me. They also weren't too expensive, especially compared to other nike shoes. I went to an off broadway and they had 3 or 4 of the nike shoes in this style and it was a really reasonable price, but even online they aren't too bad.

Thank you everyone! seems im getting a lot of different answers - from
crosstrainers to
dance/cheerleading shoes
to just socks or
even barefoot

Perhaps its just an individual choice? Does anyone on here teach Turbo Kick? if yes, what do you wear?

OR Can anyone tell what Chalene is wearing in the Turbo Fire videos? its looks like nike but im not sure the exact style.

Thanks again to all that answered so far!

I use cross trainers. They are splendid to use, especially when it comes to support.
One thing I would mention: carpet + sneakers = difficulty doing some of the "twisting" in TJ/TF. I think it also depends on the floor you're on. Tile? Laminate? Sneakers work great. Carpet? May be better in socks. Again, it's personal preference along with what you're "turboing" on emoticon

Hope that helps! Good luck!

I got disgusted with Nike as their running shoes left callouses too much, and they seem to tear up the SO's feet also. Switched to Asics Kayano Gels or Under Armour Neutrals for running, went with New Balance Trainer 710s after some research. I didn't know there were so many different Shox. I like their look, I have to re-look at those. The SO MUST wear Asics still though, Shox tore him UP!
Regardless, I look fine...I got TURBO on my mind. And I have YOUR boyfriend too!

She's wearing Nike Shox, but it's not clear what part of the Shox line she's in. Someone asked her on facebook too. You could send her an email for her mail bag Friday videos. Monica might know too. Apparently from the videos, their desks are in the same office facing each other. Check it out on Youtube

Rachel, don't get discouraged. I just started week 5 and I am only down about 4 pounds, however i am almost 3 inches down on my waist. Dont get scale obsessed, its gunna drive you crazy like it is to me. Go by how you feel and measure yourself at the end of the month, you might surprise yourself. As for the shoe situation, I'm on this message board for the same reason you are. I was just reading an article about nike sister zooms and they sound perfect for our work out. Dont get discouraged! Good luck!
