What are the best shoes for ankle support when walking?
To best support your ankles, seek out a walking shoe that offers a supportive base, seamlessly shapes to your foot to stabilize your ankles when you move, and features a rollbar in the midsole (or other midsole technology) to help stabilize your ankles (no matter what type of cut they might be).
When should you replace your walking shoes?
How often you replace your walking shoes will depend on how often you use them and how you use them, too. Generally, it’s a good idea to replace your walking shoes after 300-500 miles of use, or every six-months to a year—whichever comes first. Ultimately, when your walking shoe starts to feel uncomfortable and midsole foam doesn’t recover from compression any more, it’s time to start thinking about replacing your walking shoes.
What are the best walking shoes for flat feet?
When looking for a walking shoe that will cater to flatter feet, check for features like substantial arch support, stability for overpronation and extra benefits like firm midfoot and comfortable insoles. It’s also helpful to seek out a shoe with stability features and a wide base that doesn’t allow for overpronation. Ultimately, the best fit is going to depend on your preferences and comfort—but inherent stability is likely a good start.
What should you look for when choosing walking shoes?
Overall, picking the right walking shoe for you is about finding a comfortable, supportive shoe that doesn’t leave your feet hurting at the end of the day. The right walking shoe should offer good traction, supportive foam, and a quality construction that offers stability, comfort, and the right amount of cushion.
What is the difference between a walking and a running shoe?
Most walking shoes are constructed with more durable rubber on the outsole of the shoe for greater durability, are less flexible, and are typically more firm underfoot. Running shoes are designed to be lighter, more flexible, and cushion more impact than a walking shoe. While it’s possible to wear a running shoe for walking, it’s typically unwise to wear a walking shoe for running.
What is overpronation and supination?
Overpronation means that your foot rolls inward when you walk or run, meaning the inner edge of your heel hits the ground first when you take a step. Alternatively, supination means you roll your foot to the outer edge when you walk. Supination is also known as underpronation and typically means most of your weight distribution is on the outside of your foot. The footwear you choose should help bring you to a more neutral level of pronation.
