How to choose a walking shoe


livestrong.com :

In general standing or walking for a long time can hurt your feet, but when you're doing it on concrete from sunrise to sunset and beyond, your feet need some extra help from your footwear. If you choose the right shoe it would protect your feet from any pressure.

Walking and running have basically the same motions; Thus, more shoe producers are knowing that each activity needs a special shoe that fits it, and as a result, the selection of walking shoes has grown in recent years.

Many people probably automatically jump into their usual running shoes, even when they're about to spend a full day walking on tough concrete. While there are similarities in walking and running motions, there are enough differences to make some shoes better for walking -- including more cushioning and structure.

There are some difference between running shoes and walking shoes. Running shoes usually need maximum shock absorption as well as more heel control, since the heel hits the ground with the greatest force.

Walking shoes, on the other hand, need more equally distributed cushioning. Shock absorption is not only at the heel, but also at the midsole. The American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society's website notes that walking shoes normally have more rounded soles to help distribute your body weight as it transfers from the heel to the midsole and then pushes off the toe. The toe area of a walking shoe also is usually more rounded.

Mitch Decker, manager of Run On!, a store in Dallas, Texas, appropriative to fitness and running, says he always thinks about a diversity of factors equally, whether he's fitting a walker or runner. He realizes that it's important to look at level of experience, kilometres the person walks or runs and especially how his foot hits the ground when he's walking or running.
