When you run your foot is in contact with the ground a lot less than when you walk. For this reason the shoes are built differently but even within walking shoes there are many different categories such as long distance walking.

The air cushion does that sometimes. They can't be fixed easily and are best replaced. Sorry for the bad news. If you wanted to use them still, a slow recovery poron insole would make a difference forxyou

Distinguishing between walking and running shoes


Walking and running shoes while they may look very similar to you when you first see them are not designed to function in the same way. They were each made with a specific motion in mind. For running there is more padding in the heel of the shoe because this is the part of the foot that takes the most impact when you run, walking shoes are made to be more flexible. Walking shoes are made to support the rolling motion that your foot makes while you walk, this is a different motion from the stride of a runner.

Along with the different stride running shoes are designed to stabalize and propel the runner forward so the shoes have a very slight angle. If you are looking for walking shoes you don't need this angle because you roll through the step using your whole foot.

If you ever have seen a pair of running and walking shoes next to each other the one most distinguishing feature is that of the heel shape. Running shoes are designed to give the runner more stability so the heels will be flaired. Since a walker's foot hits the ground heel first the flaired heel will be in the way of the smooth rolling motion of the foot. When looking for a running shoe make sure that the heels are straight or undercut not flaired.

Running shoes are also made with considerable more mesh materials to ventalate the foot because of the amount of sweat that is produced while running.

Finally you can check the flexability of the shoe. Walking shoes should bend at more towards the front of your foot because walkers push off with their toes. Running shoes will have a bend closer the middle of the foot because runners push off with the balls of their feet.

Like all sports you have to make sure that you are using the right equipment to prevent injury. Even though the shoes may look very similar using walking shoes for running or walking shoes for running can cause injury to your feet, legs and knees. So be careful!

Tips on running shoes


What makes running shoes perfect for running activity.Why do runners buy shoes specifically for running? Running shoes and shoes that are made specifically for different sports such as basketball or cycling tend to have different shapes that cater to the specific activity that they are made for. Different types of motion put different stresses on your foot and ankles, and these are accounted for in the design of specific shoes. For example, cycling shoes tend to have a rigid bottom that is not particularly comfortable to walk around in but provide for a much more efficient transfer of energy from the foot to the pedal. Basketball shoes provide support for the ankle to account for making hard cuts and frequent jumping. While not always 100% necessary, getting a shoe for a specific sport can provide performance and/or safety benefits. Even amongst just running shoes, there are many different categories depending upon the type of running that you plan on doing.

I love walking and last year bought some great walking shoes. They still seem in a good condition. When do I need to replace them?


Ideally, walking shoes should be replaced every 300 to 500 miles which for an average committed walker would be between 3 and 6 months. Don't judge it by how the shoe looks as the inner support could be worn away but the shoe still look great. You will feel the difference between an old and a new shoe.

I'm planning on buy hicking boots. What should I know when buying hicking shoes?


Purchasing the right hiking boots for your feet and for your outdoor activity will make your trip much more enjoyable.
First,decide why you need boots. Camping with a backpack, hiking with a light bag and traveling internationally all call for different kinds of shoes.
Second, Put on a pair of the socks in which you intend to hike.
Go to a shoe store, the shoe department of a store that sells recreational equipment, or best of all, a specialized outdoor retailer.Find the lightest boots suitable for the kind of walking you plan to do. Leather is best for all purposes. Boots with inflexible soles are best for long walks with heavy bags. Lighter boots or heavy walking shoes are better for most other applications.
Try on the boots, tie them as you are likely to on the trail, and knock at the floor with your toe. If your foot slips appreciably, you are likely to get blisters. Ask for a smaller size, or try a different model.

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.

Which gym shoe should I buy? I figured someone here may know about gym shoes? I walk and do a tiny amount of jogging. I just want a shoe that I put on and say wow that's great.


If you plan on running, find a running specialty store. They'll let you try on different pairs, jog around and see how it feels. If the store is a decent one, the salespeople often can look at your gait and recommend something to provide the right support in the right place.

Hi! I'm looking for women walking shoes for my wife. Her old walking shoes are just too old. Do you have any recommendations? We are looking for a reebok model.


EasyTone Reeinspire shoes gave me the best workout in my legs just after wearing them for two days - I wore them to work and didn't do anything different. My legs were sore, my **** was sore - it was great! Thanks Reebok for creating a workout feeling without having to workout at all.
