Training shoes for Jump Rope

I know running shoes are probably best for hill sprints too but I want to do hill sprints, followed by jump rope training. Does anyone have a good recommendation for training shoes that are good for hill sprints AND jump rope. I would think a cross-trainer shoe would be best but I wanted to ask around what others would recommend.

Btw, the guy at a Runners Point shop recommended Nike Free 3.0 but I'm not too sure about this.

Re: Training shoes for Jump Rope

Nike Frees and barefoot. I sprint on "playing field type grass" and jump rope barefoot. I basically do all of my training barefoot except for when I run on an actual track to change things up, then I wear the Nike Frees.

Re: Training shoes for Jump Rope

Barefoot or any old shoe. Personally I wear Asics GT-2120s, but I have a pair of Nike Frees too. (only reason I don't wear them is because I'm playing around with parkour stuff and don't want to kill my Frees, since I hear they're pretty flimsy)

Re: Training shoes for Jump Rope

Well, barefoot is out of the question because the trail is full of rocks and pebbles. I forgot to mention that I do these exercises in the middle of the woods. I sometimes do barefoot jump rope training if I'm inside but not on a trail. I also wouldn't do hill sprints there without any shoes.
I'm surprised most people seem to recommend Nike Free. Maybe I should give it a shot.

Re: Training shoes for Jump Rope

I use Fila Corsa Ottos for the majority of my running. I like them a lot. As far as trail jump roping, I'm not a fan of picking up dirt with a jump rope.

For trail running I use NB 790s.

There are shoe made for jump rope , check out www.ropixshoe.com You must indicate whether your links are Work and Family Safe (WFS)

They are great , lightweight and forefoot cushioning. The soles are sleek so the rope doesn't catch while jumping. Excellent !

I'm sure he's figured out which shoes will get the job done since 2008
