Walking Shoes

When choosing walking shoes, you want to consider several factors. A good fit is most important when choosing the best walking shoe for men; cushioning should be uniform, and the shoe should not twist or bend. Walking shoes can also get specific depending on your goal or physical need. For instance, running shoes are designed to support the midsole while walking shoes focus on a heel-toe roll. In this instance, the design of a running shoe would not benefit walking motion.

A good-looking walking shoe would be nice to have but the function would be more important than looks.
