MT2 Trail shoes

The salesperson was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I needed shoes for packed snow, moderate ice, mud and bumps. After several runs on streets, rail trails and the Bruce Trail, I’m impressed with the grip, stability, comfort and price. Even used them paddle boarding and appreciated the extra grip and comfort. There pretty muddy and that’s how they’ll stay!

Best I’ve used for weights and HIIT

I have used normal running shoes in the past and these were my first fitness shoes. The stability is much better and the grip far more suitable. The pull tabs initially seemed odd but actually they are good once you get used to it. It is tighter than say Kipsta or Kalenji shoes, but that is probably a good thing for support. Could be a bit cheaper. But definitely worth trying and seem to compare to other brands around the £50-£70 mark.

Too small for male

The biggest size of this shoes is only EU 42, which my foot is EU 44,what could I say? Is it difficult to produce some bigger shoes?

Why wear fitness shoes?

Studies carried out at our Sportslab have shown that fitness and other sports involve a whole host of different movements. Movements like twists, repeated jumps, squats, lunges, etc. Our shoes are designed to help you perform these movements without risking an injury. Wearing suitable shoes reduces the risk of injury by 20% when compared with people who wear running shoes.

Drop: height difference between the front and back of your foot

All of our fitness shoes have a 4 mm drop. The feeling you get with this 4 mm drop is closer to that of your natural foot position (barefoot = no drop).

Snug support

Decathlon-Knit technology completely wraps the foot for personalized, snug support. Certain threads are more rigid in strategic places and lateral reinforcements at the heel help you change directions without losing your balance.

Multidirectional flexibility

"The multidirectional flexibility refers to how well a shoe flexes and twists to support direction changes. Studies have shown that we need 1.7 times more flex and extension during fitness activities than during running. The ankle's movement also varies depending on the kind of fitness or running you do. That's why we've created multidirectional shoes specifically for fitness."

Forefoot cushioning

"Cushioning is the ability of the shoe to cushion impacts and dampen vibrations. The main point of impact between the foot and the floor during fitness activities is at the forefoot, whereas for running the impact is at the heel. We design our shoes with excellent cushioning at the forefoot to protect your body from repeated impacts while also stabilizing your supporting leg to help you string movements together more smoothly. "

Forefoot support

"Why is it important? Good forefoot support - a must for fitness - helps you stay balanced when you go to change direction."

How do we prove it? product test

In our labs, our researchers analyze movements using sensors that precisely measure the human body's reactions. But because nothing is as good as tried and tested experience, we've also tested our products in gyms where they'll actually be used. We use these tests to create technical and affordable products to keep you doing sport safely and comfortably.

The bonus is no marks on the floor.

Our sole has been designed to leave no marks on the floor.

Can you run on a treadmill wearing fitness shoes?

Our fitness shoes were specially designed for cardio fitness activities. They can also be used for limited treadmill running. You can wear them for a quick warm-up/cool-down on the treadmill before or after a class. However, if you plan to only run, whether on a treadmill or outdoors, you should choose a running shoe for safety reasons.

Are fitness shoes for indoor use only?

Cardio fitness is mainly done in gyms and/or at home. Our shoes have been designed for indoor use. The rubber is specially suited for indoor use as it is softer. Wearing these shoes outdoors on tarmac will cause premature wear to the rubber. The grip of our soles is tested based on the floors used in gyms or in your home, and rubber is designed to be more grippy when used in these places.
