Before moving further let us chalk out the main points that lead us to choose the best Walking Shoes. The checklist is not big so pay attention.
- Fully Comfortable Shoes that tick all options
Spend some time browsing the shoe from all angles and ascertain they suit your purpose. The uppers, stitching, insoles, padding, breathability, sole support should all be confirmed. There should be absolutely no discomfort and you should be able to focus on walking. Any distraction like something nibbling at your feet or pinching or friction should be ruled out.
Wear the shoe and observe from the outside, how your feet is placed inside. No part should protrude out from the boundary and this will indicate that the shoe is of right size.
Stand steady and move your feet within the shoe and see how it feels. Just move your feet up and down and see how this “walking” feels. Also observe whether the shoe feels heavy or light and also whether it is really comfortable.
If all goes well, you can rest assured that you have laid your hands on a really comfortable shoe.
- Be Sure that the shoe is made for walking
The shoe you select should be flexible enough to bend when needed and yet provide ample support for your feet. Walking also includes some running so give it a serious look at the sole. Lastly if you also plan to go for trekking or hiking, ensure you have a shoe which has good grip on various surfaces. You can try walking on plain floor or matted areas inside the shop and decide. Many manufacturers declare beforehand where the shoe is purported to be used for.
- Running Shoes also work well
For many manufacturers, running shoes sell well rather than walking shoes. If you have difficulty locating the right walking shoes, invest in running shoes as brisk walking is also considered as part and parcel of running. Remember, though, that hiking shoes in comparison are good only for that one purpose and not eligible for anything else.
- Sturdy Construction helps you going
A simple ankle turn can put you off the circuit for a month and for this reason you should evaluate how sturdy your shoe is. All marketing descriptions may not be true so you should judge the product on your own. It is immaterial whether you are walking, brisk walking, jogging or running as one slip will render you immobile.
Remember always that you are walking to become healthier not injured. If you focus and read all the above tips take it for granted that you will walk long distances and keep yourself healthy.
