The search for the Perfect walking shoe is no simple task and requires the same approach as finding the right running shoe. Serious runners know a well-built shoe that fits the shape of their foot and running style with proper cushioning and support will allow their feet and joints feeling fresh after a long run. Walking has less impact on your feet and joints than running which leads most of us to just grab any pair of shoes without putting as much thought into it. But not having the appropriate footwear for those repeated miles on the trail will have your joints and feet feeling the impacts of not being as diligent as needed with your walking shoe selection. Shoes built specifically for walking might just mean the difference between being excited for tomorrow's trail or being stuck on the sideline with sore feet.
Quality footwear should be designed specifically for the activity you are pursuing, in this case walking. A good pair of walkers need to provide a good combination of comfort, support, and stability as well as cushion and flexibility to accommodate your natural walking motion. The most important thing to keep in mind when it comes to selecting a walking shoe (or any activity) is proper Fit. Just because a specific shoe works for someone else does not mean it will work with your feet. While looking at fit the first thing to do is make sure your foot is locked in (not tight) throughout your heel and mid foot to reduce heel slippage and ensure your foot will not be sliding around while walking. Next confirm you have proper length, the last thing you want is having your foot hit the front of your shoe and leaving you with bruised toenails and blistered feet. Finding that perfect fit will leave your feet happy for miles and miles.
