Twice as Much

Saturday, July 06, 2013

Today, I'm going to go out and buy a pair of walking sneakers. I brought a cheap pair and I do mean a cheap pair. In about 3 weeks after wearing them my left ankle and knee hurts. So, cheap isn't always good. I need a shoe with good arch support. Does anyone have suggestions on brand or type? emoticon These cheap shoes are costing me more than twice as much pain and they are ugly too emoticon

    I swear by Keen walkers. I have a wide toe box and so do Keen's. They are spendy but worth it. Be sure to have any shoes fitted. It's worth the extra money to go to a specialty store, either athletic shoes or a sports store that has dedicated fitters. Besides most of the good walkers are the same price everywhere. Once I have a pair that I like I will buy the same model, same size on the internet. However, I live in a very small town that is 90 miles from the nearest shopping.

    I see you are in El Paso, TX. I would recommend going to a specialty store where they can check out your foot type and you can try out several shoes. That is the best approach. There is a store in El Paso called Up and Running and they have 2 locations, not sure if they are near you:
3233 North Mesa Street (West side location) or
1475 George Dieter #O (East side location)
Good luck! The right shoes make all the difference!
