Thinking of starting a low impact walking fitness program? Make sure to get good shoes for it!

Because your feet are unique to you, selecting a pair of walking shoes has to be based on what fits your feet the best and not based on looks, reviews or price. The most expensive shoe might not be your best choice.

If you are unsure of what to look for in a good pair of walking shoes, seek advice from a knowledgeable shoe representative in a sports store. They tend to have more experience fitting athletes with proper footwear.

Walking Shoe Features for a Good Fit and Fitness Success

When selecting shoes, look for a pair that gives you the right amount of support, flexibility and cushioning.

Walking Shoe Support:

A shoe right for your foot should fit your foot snugly, but not so tight that it compresses your foot. If your shoe fits too loosely, it can cause blisters and even damage your toenails, if they jam against the front of the shoe. Remember your feet swell during exercising, so you may need a size bigger than what you wear in other shoes.

Walking Shoe Flexibility:

Walking shoes that fit right should bend where your foot naturally bends. If the sole is too stiff, you can end up with foot pain.

Walking Shoe Cushioning:

Even though walking is a low impact sport, you want to cushion your foot safely in the sole. It cushions your heel when it strikes the ground and improves the fit of the shoe.

Oklahoma Retirement Living Fitness Tips and Resources

Always try on shoes before buying. If you plan on buying shoes online, go to a shoe store first and try on the same pair you plan on buying to ensure a good fit.

“Everyone has the ability to increase resilience to stress. It requires hard work and dedication, but over time, you can equip yourself to handle whatever life throws your way without adverse effects on your health. Training your brain to manage stress won’t just affect the quality of your life, but perhaps even the length of it.” –  Amy Morin
