typical weight of gym shoes

I use the scale at my gym and often calculate my weight with my shoes on. They're too light to put on the scale by themselves to determine how much weight they are adding to my total. Anyone know how much gym shoes weigh?

why not call the manufacturer and ask? or maybe go to their website and fill out an order form and check what weight your shipment comes in at...i'm betting that most shoes will be different weights depending on the type of materials, amount of cushioning, if they have ankle supports, etc.

Weigh yourself with the shoes, and then without.
That way, you know how much they weigh for next time without having to remove them each time.

I usually weigh myself at home in the morning before my shower when I am wearing nothing. In the evening when I go to the gym, I weigh myself when i am fully dressed in my gym attire (sweat pants, t-shirt, underwear, socks, and sneakers. there is usually about a 4 lb. difference between the two weights. HTH, though your experience may be different.
