Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

- If you’re tired of shopping for orthopedic-looking trainers and just to find a pair of comfortable walking shoes, then you might want to consider the Propet Tami. This athletic trainer-inspired footgear uses a soft, stretchy upper fabric that not only accommodates problem feet but also makes room for natural expansion, so the feet don’t feel restricted as the day moves forward.
- Underneath, the foot is protected by a full-length ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam that serves as both the midsole and the outsole, while the rubber pods reinforce key areas. Inside, two removable insoles are found which allows users to customize the depth and comfort according to their needs.
Designed to accommodate the unique shape and needs of women’s feet, the Propet Tami comes in US sizes 5 to 12, including half and full sizes in between. It is available in five width profiles which include 2A - Narrow, B - Medium, D - Wide, 2E - X-Wide, and 4E - X-Wide.
The Propet Tami utilizes an EVA foam for the outsole. It is crafted to be lightweight, yet hard-wearing, with rubber pods on the heel and the toe sections, for enhanced durability. It is flexible but the sipings on the underside allow it to move naturally with the foot and they also help with traction on various surfaces.
The EVA outsole also functions as the midsole of the Propet Tami which is responsible for reducing the impact of each step. The comfort and fit are enhanced by the insoles. Those in search of wide walking shoes who feel that the depth in this model is insufficient can easily remove the two layers of insoles for more room. The first insole is the OrthoLite which features an open-cell construction that aids in ventilation while the second insole is a memory foam that adds extra shock absorption and support.
The Propet Tami features a stretchy upper fabric that accommodates natural foot expansion and mobility. There are synthetic overlays on the toe box and the heel which not only protect the underlying material but also keeps the structure of the top.
This model features a lacing system for fit adjustments. The laces integrate with the webbed eyelets that extends down to the quarters, enhancing lateral support when the laces are cinched. The tongue and collar are both lightly padded to provide a secure and comfortable fit.
The Propet Tami is marketed as diabetic approved footwear. It bears the A5500 code which means that under the Therapeutic Shoe Bill, eligible consumers can have the cost of it reimbursed.
