I favor New balance, I have a really narrow heel and a high instep. I'm on my second pair and will continue to buy them. Yhe other thing is when I was fitted they told me to buy a size 10, which is a full size bigger than I usually wear and they are very comfortable and I have no foot issues.

Everyone has different feet. My sister and daughter swear by Nikes. They don't work for me. I like Reeboks and New Balance. Need a higher arch than the Nike has.

Buy a shoe that is a little larger than normal as your foot does swell with the walk.

I do agree that you should try on several pair. Walk a little in them. See how they feel. The shoe should feel "right" from the beginning.

I bought a pair of TONERS....LOVE them. ANother thing, even with them I use orthotics. You might find a pair at the Dr. Scholls display in Walmart, They are not cheap, but well worth making your feet feel GREAT. Orthotics can even make a cheaper shoe work fine!

i started wearing Brooks Addiction about 8 years ago-was in training to do the 60 mile Breast Cancer fund raiser and was having trouble also- a shoe store that was sponsoring the walk did a day of evaluating walkers feet- tried many on and this was the one they recommended. Have stayed with them- i work 12 hour shifts in a hospital-hard floors-and these continue to work for me. Good luck but I agree you need to go in and try many on. And don't go first thing in the morning- go in the afternoon in case of foot swelling. emoticon

Rebox walkers are great for support and comfort. They have a great air support system to give you all around comfort and cushioning. I love mine.
Good luck and let us know how you do.

I love my Asics GT2150s but I recommend going in and trying on a billion pairs of shoes. That's what I have done in the past and at somepoint your feet will tell you when you are trying on the right shoes. If you have a Direct Shoe warehouse (DSW) near you, that is a great store for reasonably priced shoes. (No, I don't work there.)

But if you have reasonable health insurance, you may try going to a podiatrist to get an evaluation. I got orthodics a few years back and it has made all the difference in my feet. Also my knees.

I have now gone up to 5 miles of fast walking and some jogging(daily); but my feet are killing me after each session. Any suggestions about good walking shoes? emoticon emoticon
