Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Shoe for jumping

“What are the best jump rope shoes?”

After a lot of struggle and research, we’ve finally taken it upon ourselves to put together the ultimate guide to helping you choose the best jump rope shoes for your jump rope journey.

In this guide, we will explain why you need good shoes for jumping, how to choose the right ones, whether it’s OK to go barefoot, and we cover some of our favorite choices.

Let’s take a look –

Why Need Good Shoes?

Selecting the right shoes is an important step in any working out journey.

The shoes you choose to jump rope in can have an incredible impact on your jump rope experience. The wrong shoes can not only make it difficult to maintain a good jumping rhythm, but it can set you up for potential injuries like shin splints.

When it comes to training and exercise, shoes should do a few things:

  1. Protect your feet from injury during exercise
  2. Act as good shock absorbers when your foot strikes the ground
  3. Keep your feet comfortable during exercise
  4. Make you look badass when you’re training

Similarly, shoes should NOT force you to change your biomechanics when exercising.

How to Choice the Best Jump Rope Shoes

Here’s generalized detail that what we look for in a good jump rope shoe:

  1. Offers good steadiness
  2. Offers good ankle care
  3. Offers good mischievous support
  4. Has sufficient moderating in the midsole
  5. Doesn’t have deep grooves, an elevated heel, or a platform
  6. Not incredibly expensive
  7. Makes you look badass

Those are the criteria we look for. Most shoes are not going to meet ALL of the criteria, but it’s important to try to hit on as many of them as possible.

Now let’s take a look at some of our favorite choices.
