Sneakers For Walking

Sneakers are not the best choice for serious walking shoes. The more miles you log, and the more varied the terrain is, the more you will want to look at light hiking shoes. However, some companies, like New Balance and Clarks, offer sneakers that have an added level of anatomical support.

Naturally, if you have foot problems of any kind, we’d recommend Supportive, Orthopedic Shoes for Walking.

 

 

Why Buy Shoes Online?

I hate shoe shopping. And I don’t think I’m the only person who feels that way.

For me, shopping for walking shoes is especially painful, thanks to my odd-shaped feet and a small selection of choices in my home town.

Good Pair Of Shoes.com makes shopping easier with an extensive collection of walking shoes for men and easy checkout through Amazon.

If you’re tired of driving all over town trying on shoes, this is the solution. Just order several pairs through our Amazon links, and return the ones that don’t fit. If you’re one of the 100 million Amazon Prime members in this country, you’ll even get free shipping both directions.

No rush. No pressure. No sales clerks. No driving around. You can take as much time as you need to determine the perfect fit. (Just make sure you don’t wear them outdoors)

If you have wide feet, like mine, there’s a post on the best walking shoes for wide feet. We also have shoes for people who have foot issues, such as plantar fasciitis or flat feet.

Noteworthy: Inexpensive

Don’t let the name fool you… These really aren’t hiking shoes, but they are a good value for basic walking sneakers. The reviews of Fila Day Hikers are mixed… many women say they’re quite comfortable with some extra room in the toes, but some complain about the quality of construction and the materials. One thing’s for sure, you get what you pay for in walking shoes.

Noteworthy: Ultra-thick cushioning

Hoka best walking shoes for men goodpairofshoes.comHoka One One is a relatively new brand you’ve probably not seen, but you’ll remember them when you do see them. The innovation here is in the meta-rocker sole and the One-One cushioning and support. You can see how thick the sole is… almost twice as thick as other walking or running shoes. Technically, this is a running shoe, but they’re very cushy and the unique meta-rocker shape seem to propel you forward. Some say the design is also beneficial for plantar faciitis.

Puma Women’s Fashin Alt-w Walking Shoe

Category: Sneakers for Walking
Rating: 3 stars out of 5
Noteworthy: ultra light weight.

This is a sporty little slip-on that might be okay for mall walking or casual neighborhood strolls. But I wouldn’t rely on this for fitness walking or hiking. The minimalist upper is made up of a lightweight mesh and highlighted with the iconic form stripe and cat logo branding. The compression foam footbed provides optimal step-in comfort while the flexible cushioning midsole offers shock absorption and additional support. These shoes run small, so buy a size larger than you normally wear. And always remember… Amazon makes it super easy to return things, so you can always order two, just to be safe.

This is a substantial shoe with a very rigid sole, which makes it quite durable and appropriate for all types of walking, although some reviewers found them a bit clumsy. They can easily accommodate wide feet. Please note: We will be adding more shoes to the Reebok line as we get time to review them.

Rating: 5 stars out of 5
Noteworthy: Jacquard knitted upper and anatomical footbed design

Ryka women's dominion walking shoes goodpairofshoes.comRyka is a woman-only brand, and offers the most extensive line of women’s walking shoes on the market. All of which are engineered for support and long-term foot health.

Ryka knows that a woman’s foot shape, muscle movement and skeletal structure are all inherently different from a man’s. The “Q-angle”(quadricep angle) – the anatomical relationship between the hip and knee – measures 5–7 degrees greater for women than men. As a result, women tend to shift more weight to the outside of their feet which leads to over-pronation, instability at foot strike and higher risk of injury. All Ryka sneakers, including Ryka walking shoes, are designed and developed taking into account a woman’s unique fit needs.

Saucony (pronounced sock-uh-knee)  is a well-know brand in the running community. This Boston-based company dates back to 1898, and has a long history of success in track and field.

Under Armour Verge Low Women's walking shoesI was pleasantly surprised when I tried on the men’s version of this shoe for the first time.  They accommodate the width of my feet, up in the toe box, without being too high in volume overall.  As with almost all athletic shoe brands, the insoles are worthless… I would recommend you pull em out immediately and replace them with some aftermarket insoles that have some arch support.
