I know many business travelers that enjoy working out after they’ve finished a day at the office.  Some enjoy running the streets as a way to explore a new city, while others prefer the convenience of the hotel gym.  Either way, this Virtuoso blog article piqued my interest, because it reviews travel-friendly athletic shoes that pair “packability” with performance.  Here’s what they recommend.

Top athletic shoes for business travelers

1. Hoka One One Hupana

Hoka uses midsoles that are thicker than most other brands. Though the Hoka One One Hupana appears bulky, it’s one of the lightest shoes on this page, and its mesh upper folds to pack flat. It is Virtuoso’s pick for wider feet. $115.

2. Nike Metcon 3 DSX

With its flat, stable outsole and firm heel, the Nike’s Metcon 3 DSX is tailored for multisport gym workouts. The knit upper collapses, saving room in travel bags. It also eliminates pressure points by fitting against the top of your feet. $160.

3. New Balance 1500 v3

The ultralight New Balance 1500 v3 provides maximum compressibility, but with a more responsive cushion. It’s perfect for the outdoor runner, gripping well on gravel and wet surfaces. The wide heel and roomier forefoot offer excellent stability. $110.

4. Addidas Terrex Agravic Speed

Though considered a trail runner, the Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed it works well compacts well and provides superb traction and support. Its entire upper is constructed of a sock-like mesh for lightweight, easy traveling. $120.

    Can I simply say what a relief to uncover someone who
    actually knows what they’re discussing on the web. You certainly
    know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More and more people must read this and understand this
    side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular
    since you surely have the gift.
