How to select a good walking shoes? Coul dyou recommend me on a good pair?


People are always asking for shoe recommendations. I don't like to make specific shoe recommendations because everyone's foot is different and people have different walking styles. But there are a few basics for selecting walking shoes: 1.Look for a low, supportive heel that rounds (or bevels) in. A thick heel or one that flairs out will cause your foot to slap down rather than roll. 2. A walker's foot hits heel first and then rolls gradually from heel-to-toe. So, you will need a flexible sole and more bend in the toe than a runner. 3.Next, look for a shoe that is light weight and breathable. The last thing you want is the clunky heavy leather walking shoe.
4. The most important thing of course is a shoe that fits properly. Be sure your foot has enough room in the toe box. There should be a thumbnails width (or about a half inch) between your toes and the end of the shoe.5. Go shoe shopping at the end of the day or after your walk when your feet may be slightly swollen. 6. Do not shop when you are in a hurry. 7.Wear your shoes in the house for a few days to try them out.

I'm looking for a new rock climbing shoes.A friend of mine recommended me on 'Copperhead Climbing Shoe'. Any experience with this shoe guys?


I own it .So far, I like this shoe. First off, most 5.10 shoe toe shapes don't work for my feet (my second toe is as long as my big toe). However, this shoe provides a fit with no slop for my toes while allowing my toes to not be jammed up with their knuckles grinding through the top of the shoe.
For climbing, I'd say they do very well for trad climbing. Not as well for power-edging 5.11 and up, but just fine for easier stuff.Overall good shoe; would recommend it. .

I'm considering buying shoes with toes. How can I know that my fivefingers fit?


Ideally, you will want your toes and heel to fit into each pocket comfortably snug, with your longest toe grazing the end of the toe pocket. You do not want the standard 1/2 inch of "wiggle" room as desired in traditional footwear.
Although it is perfectly fine for your toes to graze the end of the toe pockets, make sure that each toe can extend fully. If any of your toes are scrunched or curled due to lack of space, you need to go up in size. Alternately, if you wiggle your toes and they slip out of the toe pockets, you need to go down in size. Ultimately, you should find a pair that you are comfortable in and that allow you to perform activities freely and naturally-as if you are wearing no shoes at all!
