An Introduction To The Otomix Stingray

Posted By on Mar 6, 2016 |

Regardless of what you might think the first time you hear the name, Otomix stingrays have nothing to do with creatures of the ocean. The Otomix Stingray is actually a shoe brand designed with exercise, martial arts, and other contact sports in mind.


Buying a pair of Otomix Stingrays through an online retailer such as Amazon would typically cost you more than $100. That’s a fair amount of money to spend on shoes, but the quality of the footwear more than justifies the price. I have a pair of Stingrays myself that are several years old and they’re just as good now as they were when I first bought them. I put plenty of mileage on them, too; I probably spend more than 10 hours a week in the gym. I’ve seen other owners online who have reported more than five years of faithful service from their Stingrays. There are even Otomix owners out there — very rare cases, but real ones — who are wearing shoes they inherited from their parents. It’s hard to even imagine that kind of durability in a shoe, but the Otomix delivers it.

If you’re in the market for premium workout shoes and your primary concern is durability, Stingrays by Otomix make an excellent choice. Their exceptionally long lifespan easily justifies the high initial investment required to get them. Just bear the following things in mind:

Otomix have thin soles, so they’re not suitable for walking on pavement. The company’s sizing runs large, too. If you ordinarily wear size nines, for instance, I think you’ll find an 8.5 or even an eight to be a comfortable fit in Stingrays. A snug fit is important for the kinds of activities these shoes are designed for.

One common point prospective buyers wonder about is comfort. To throw out one example, wearing Stingrays makes it easy to drive for hours on end without experiencing any discomfort. These shoes are made for the gym, though, not the road.


A quick look at any of the pictures of Stingray weight lifting shoes available online will make it clear that they’re designed for style as well as comfort and durability. It’s very tempting to turn them into a fashion statement, but you have to remember that the soles of the shoes don’t hold up to pavement very well.

After you invest in a pair of Otomix Stingrays, you’ll have no difficulty nursing at least five years of useful life out of them, especially if you care for them properly. If you’re like me, though, you may get the itch to have a different pair long before your first one wears out. (Naturally, a new pair gives you a perfect excuse to pick out a new color, too!) If you’re ready to take a look at the options available to you, take a trip over to Amazon and check out all the Stingrays for sale now. There are plenty of models to choose from, most of which are available in a wide range of colors. I admit the styles are all very similar — but I’d also say that’s not really a bad Thing!
