I particularly love Easy Spirit Walking shoes. They felt like heaven when I stepped into them. They are light-weight, comfortable, and supportive. I have an ankle that swells and have been battling planter faciitis, and these shoes have great support for my arch and ankle. I even wear them around the house when I'm just cleaning, because they feel so good. They have also become my yard shoes because of the support.
Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus� name, Amen.
Unfortunately, I can't recommend a particular shoe. I think I actually do most of my walking wearing running shoes! Or maybe cross trainers.
However, I agree that finding the right shoe is important. I have been wearing name brand running shoes / cross trainers for years now. I used to buy the cheaper imitations, but once I bought a better pair, there was no turning back!
It is really worth it to spend a bit more and get something good. I buy name brand, but I usually wait until they go on super sale somewhere. Some of the cheaper department stores will feature sales on rumming shoes every so often.
Have to say that I'm a bit of a Nike gal. I do have the inserts in them as well, they help with the support factor. I would suggest going to a Running Room (are you in Canada or Minnesota or Iowa?) or some other store specific to running, and they should be able to help you out. Good luck!
Time is the coin of life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it is spent.
Since we are all trying to do our walking/working out this week, I thought I would ask everyone if they had any specific type of walking shoe that they would recommend? I tried the Reebok walking shoe and it didn't work out. I currently have a pair of Nike's that aren't very supportive, especially the ball of my foot. Does anyone have one that they really like?
