My shoe arsenal: Kelsea Ballerini

The 23-year-old country star shares her footwear choices for cycling, barre, and more.

In our new series,My Shoe Arsenal, we’re going into the closets of celebrities and athletes to see their sneaker collections. We’re not talking about the latest pair of Air Max that will never be taken out of the box. Instead, we want to see the footwear that gets them through their workouts, whether they’re runners, cyclists, barre converts, or weightlifters. First up, Kelsea Ballerini.

Between belting her heart out at Hollywood soirees, like this year’s Grammy Awards, to touring the country with Thomas Rhett, Kelsea Ballerini has plenty of reasons to make fitness a priority. “When I’m out on the road performing every night, it takes a lot out of me, so I need to stay on my A game,” she says. Next up: she’s performing at the ACM awards on Sunday, April 2, and is nominated for Video of the Year (for “Peter Pan”) and Female Vocalist of the Year. Meanwhile, she is also preparing for her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Morgan Evans, which has given her motivation to kick her workouts up a notch.

Though her schedule can get a bit manic, exercise is the one thing that Ballerini prioritizes every day. “I always try to take time for a workout, even if that means I’m doing squats on the bus,” she says. The singer keeps her trim physique by mixing up her exercise, bouncing between SoulCycle, running, walking, hiking, and kickboxing. Here, the shoes she wears for each activity.

    "My favorite shoes to not only run in, but spend my days off in, would have to be my Nikes. They’re beyond comfy and make me feel like I can do anything. I wear them specifically for training in the gym and cardio. I love the Nike Free shoes in black and it totally feels like I could be barefoot."
