Although it may seem fine to just throw on some kicks and go, walking in poorly fitting shoes could lead to injury, especially if you're a newbie fitness walker. “The foot and ankle take a pounding daily with our day-to-day activities. Up to three times the body weight can be dispersed through these small joints within our extremity,” says Sarah Haller, DPM, a podiatrist at Essex Union Podiatry in New Jersey. “Ensuring that you purchase the appropriate shoes for your activity is critical to ensure that you can prevent foot pain,” she says.

When choosing shoes you’ll be wearing for walking workouts, there are some things to keep in mind. A walking shoe should have a supportive heel counter. The midfoot should be supportive and flexible to permit the natural stride and the shoe should be able to bend at the top where the toes land, Dr. Haller says. But you shouldn’t be able to twist the shoe in a side-to-side motion (as if you’re wringing it out). If you can, the shoe won’t offer enough support.
