Click here to see our selection of Walking shoes.

Everyone can benefit from buying a pair of walking shoes and incorporating walking into their daily routine. Walking helps you increase your fitness level through low impact exercise that is also low intensity. It is an excellent workout because it reduces blood pressure, increases bone strength, and even lowers the levels of bad cholesterol in your body.

Walking may be the most inexpensive form of exercise available: it only requires a good pair of walking shoes. Walking can be performed by nearly everyone anywhere at most any time. (However, if you walk at night make sure you are in a safe area and are visible to cars.) Brisk walking, also known as power walking, can reduce your risk of contracting coronary heart disease. To wit, men that engage in regular brisk walking have less than one half the number of heart attacks than those who do not. In addition, the rate of heart disease among men also decreases by 50%.

Best of all, once you buy a good pair of walking shoes you can train without much effort. You can rearrange your trip to work to include a walk. Take walks when you do your errands or go shopping. Walks are great for dates or to spend time with the family. Walking also provides a great excuse to adopt a pet so that you have company on your trips. Plus, with gas prices on the rise think of all the money you will save if you leave the car parked in the garage a bit more.

You may also want to purchase a stride counter. This is a small piece of equipment that counts the number of steps you take each day. A stride counter retails for approximately $10 and can help you stay motivated as you burn away calories.

When you go shopping for walking shoes don't go in thinking there is one best brand or model of shoe. Remember, the best shoe is the one that you feel most comfortable wearing. The best shoe is the one that gives you the best flexibility, cushioning, support and compensation for any stride problems you may have. Ask the salesman to help you find as you that is appropriate for your walking distances, speed and style of walking. It should also be a shoe that will match the terrain you intend to walk upon and that supports your body weight.

You can shop for walking shoes over the Internet or in retail stores. The advantage to shopping in a retail store is that you can try the shoe on before you take it home. However, Internet stores are becoming more popular because they have very liberal return policies and offer free shipping to you and back to the store if the item does not meet your needs. Internet shoe stores are also popular because they have a wide variety of styles and sizes.

When you shop for walking shoes it is easy to be drawn in by alluring styles and advertisements. While it is important to feel good about looks, it is more for to go for comfort. You do not want to wind up with blisters or sore feet after your workout. Finally, remember to wear the same kind of stocks when you try on a shoe that you will actually wear when you use it during your workout.
