If you're looking down at your current pair of cross training shoes and considering an upgrade during the Black Friday deals, I recommend jumping on these fitness deals below. 

I test and wear some of the best cross training shoes on the market for a living and I've spotted a few steals I'd shop before the official sale kicks off on November 24.  

I'm a big fan of the brands mentioned below, and I've had my eye on Amazon to see if and when the sales would begin to drop on cross training shoes. Luckily, they have. I've included the best Black Friday cross training shoe deals below.

Should you buy cross training shoes during Black Friday?

Black Friday has landed on November 24, closely followed by Cyber Monday on November 27, and the weekend sales are a great time to pick up deals on your favorite cross training shoes. 

We've already seen the Nike Metcon 8 just drop to $75 in an early Black Friday sale, and expect to see other brands follow soon enough. If you enjoy weight lifting and HIIT, it's worth reading up on weightlifting shoes vs cross training shoes first before making a purchase. 

Not for you? You can shop some of the best early Black Friday deals right now on Under Armour and Asics running shoes, fitness apparel and more.
