What to look for in Walking Shoes?

When looking for the best walking shoes you should focus on the below components:

Fit: The heel counter on your walking shoes should hold your heel comfortably with minimal heel slipping or side to side movement. The toe box should allow for your toes to wiggle and bend freely.

Cushion: The midsole is one of the most critical components of the best walking shoes. It should be soft enough to absorb each step with flexibility but hard enough to give you the support you need so you won’t pronate/supinate. The insole should be supportive through the arch area, while offering additional cushioning with each step.

Design: The upper of your walking shoes should be breathable so your feet do not sweat, helping cool off your feet while walking. The lacing should be the length down your foot to allow for tightening and loosening of the upper.
