Choose the right walking shoe - your walking shoes should be comfortable and fit properly. The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests that a good quality lightweight shoe with breathable upper materials (leather or nylon mesh) will serve you well. The heel counter should be very firm with a heel providing reduced cushioning which positions the heel closer to the ground for walking stability. The forefoot of the shoe should have both adequate support and flexibility. Fit is equally important. Your shoes should be fitted both for length and width. Wear the socks you will use when walking to have your shoes fitted. Have the fitting done late in the afternoon, as your feet tend to swell. Make sure that the shoe is snug but not too tight. Your toes should be able to move around. Several walking shoes have qualified for the APMA Seal of Acceptance and can be found at www.apma.org Happy Walking!
