What to look for in a good walking shoe:

  • A shoe that is lightweight and flexible
  • A non-skid, resilient sole – thick enough to protect the foot
  • A firm heel cup and laces or Velcro straps that can be adjusted to prevent the foot from sliding around the shoe

  • For older adults, look for shoe which provide stability and support for your feet
