The Best (and Prettiest!) Shoes For Every Kind of Workout

Getting dressed for a workout is sometimes harder than it seems. On one hand, you want a really good outfit to distract from all your sweatiness and lack of makeup, especially if you frequent the same gym or studio as any co-workers/friends/neighbors. But then again, isn't the point of exercising so that you look amazing later on? In that case, it's better to be concerned with what works, not just with what looks best.

For the shoe-obsessed, this is a particularly painful choice to make in the footwear department, as most performance sneakers are a far cry from cashmere Supergas or printed Keds designed by Taylor Swift. Even so, there's still plenty of attractive options out there that get the job done. To find the prettiest possible shoe for your workout of choice, click through the slideshow below.


Jogs are great for the heart, leg muscles and mind, but not so much for the joints, so support is key. This pair has a properly cushioned sole and a color scheme that reminds me of Kenzo's Spring/Summer 2012 collection. (Bonus: it'll totally work if you throw on one of those ubiquitous tiger sweatshirts as you leave the gym.)
