Walking shoes?

Hi there,

I'll be moving to the UK in June to join my husband, and am looking forward to doing a lot of walking.

Which shoes would you suggest (type, brand, etc.) I have some running shoes, but as I'm from California, they might not be appropriate for England. As far as walking goes, I hope to start easy/moderate and then work my way up.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I think Adidas, Nike and New Balance have the best shoes for walking, for men as well as women. When choosing the walking shoes, we should focus on those that are comfortable, durable, breathable and good-looking, if pricing is not your first consideration.

Walking shoes carry the right design to provide sufficient comfort to walk for hours. They minimize the stress and impact on your feet preventing injury. Uncomfortable shoes can force the rest of your body to adopt a particular gait to compensate for it. The associated effect is back pain, shoulder pain and limping – never a good thing.

Hi, I would recommend Altra Lone Peak 4.0 shoes especially if you have wide feet. They are zero drop and are the most comfortable best gripping shoes I’ve ever worn. Alternatively Merrill or Keen make really good shoes. You would get them much cheaper in the States.

Hi,
Whatever the brand, I would definitely recommend something waterproof
