Running shoes for walking

Some women tend to choose running sports shoes for walking. This type of footwear isn’t actually suited for walking and can be damaging for your feet due to too much cushioning.

Sizing

It is difficult to buy the right sizing of the shoes online. You should try them on in the conventional store beforehand if you have an opportunity in order to avoid disappointment. Another option is to read carefully what other people are saying. Often shoes run a little bit larger or smaller and people often tell you about it in the reviews.

If you have bought the shoes that are a little bit tight – try stretching them carefully. Don’t do it if they are very tight or more than 1 size too small.

Arch support

Not all the best shoes offer arch support. This is important as the arch bears a lot of stress while you are walking. If your favorite shoes don’t offer arch support or you have a high arch try orthodic inserts. The best one are from Powerstep, Timberland and Superfeet.

Waterproof

The best shoes according to our research are Skechers Performance Women’s Go Walk Slip-On Walking Shoe and are made of textile material. They are neither waterproof or water resistant. Textile materials make the shoes breathable so your feet won’t get sweat or smelly.

But sometimes we live in conditions with a lot of rainy or wet weather. In this case use simple waterproof spray on your favorite shoes and they won’t get wet!

Shoe odor

Smelly shoes can be a problem for people who walk a lot. Footwear that don’t breathe or have materials that stink easily is usually the reason. Try shoe deodorizer or powder to eliminate shoe odor:

Last tip: comfortable walking shoes can be used for both walking AND running!
