Walking Shoes

Walking is a great low-impact way to stay active and fit, so it’s important to find a pair of walking shoes that can keep up.

Walking shoes are made to be comfortable and durable, giving you miles and miles of happy walking. With cushy midsole foam and reinforced uppers, these walking shoes deliver the comfort and performance you crave.

Can You Wear Running Shoes for Walking?

Yes! Most running shoes make excellent walking shoes.

Running shoes have generous cushioning and support, and most running shoes last between 300-500 miles. Running also produces greater forces and more wear than walking, so running shoes are engineered to soak up those forces to keep runners feeling healthy. With that in mind, it’s no wonder running shoes will work well for walking.

If you want to wear running shoes for walking, look for a comfortable fit and high-quality construction. Try out a pair of stability running shoes if you need a little extra support or pick neutral running shoes if you don’t.

If you plan to use running shoes for walking, though, don’t choose race shoes. Race shoes are designed specifically to be lightweight and fast, which means they aren’t well-suited for walking.
