What's the best shoe for your HIIT workout?

Published in Tips on September 29th, 2020

You hear it everywhere in the fitness world these days — HIIT workouts are IN.
But what exactly is a HIIT workout? And what do I need for them?!

Read on for the 411 on all things HIIT.

First of all, what is a HIIT workout?!

Without even knowing it, you have probably already done a HIIT workout. HIIT stands for high intensity interval training — typically involving short periods of intense exercise followed by periods of less intense recovery. You'll fire through calories, build muscle, and even improve oxygen & blood flow while lowering blood pressure.

Still thinking you've never completed a HIIT workout? This method of training is found in popular workouts such as boxing, bootcamp, dance classes, and more!

Here at TIEM it’s one of our favorite ways to move. But we pretty quickly began to ask ourselves, what shoes should you wear to a HIIT class? (Hint: not your running shoes!)


Why you need a different kind of support.

All of those workouts mentioned above have something in common. What? They're going to make you move laterally (side to side). While you may love your running shoes for their aesthetic and performance, they just weren’t built for this kind of exercise. Running sneakers are made with the intention to support forward movements (running, walking).

Quick lateral movements, pivoting, and jumping are staples in HIIT classes. So you need a shoe that was made for it!

We've got just the thing — the Latus. She's got two unique features making this addition to your footwear lineup a total game changer.

1. STRAPPING SYSTEM - This unique velcro strapping system intentionally wraps around your foot at key points to allow major support right where you need it. Trust us when we say this gives new meaning to 'fitting like a glove'.

2.TIEMCORE Shock Absorption - Patented technology you won't find anywhere else. Keeps you cushioned and controlled underfoot for each jump, step, and pivot of your sweat sesh.



Ready to get the most out of your HIIT workout? Check out the Latus in five modern styles right here.
