Our toning shoes reviews show that the best workout shoe for walking is not a walking shoe at all. A good shoe is not a court shoe or even an all-purpose shoe. Runner's shoes are by far the best ones for walking of any kind that I have tried. I am particular when it comes to shoes and have bought more of them and returned more of them than I can count.

I have tried various shoes made for walking and have not found one that I like. I was finally persuaded to go with a good running shoe and I have never looked back. Running shoes have more cushion than most and are very light. I have found that a good shoe is around $ 100. It may seem that is expensive but they will last a long time. Especially if used only for walking.

Walking with running shoes offers fast toning, and improved weight loss. They are easy to love because exercise becomes less of a chore. The features that should be found in running shoes are as follow:

– Proper Fit – Make sure that it fits like a glove with little room for movement.

– Cushion – You will want plenty of cushioning to relieve pressure on your joints and limbs.

– Flexibility – Full range of motion is important.

– Stability – Keeping control of the motion should be first and foremost in making your decision. More on the structure of the foot below.

– Breathable – Shoes that wicks away sweat will keep your feet comfortable and dry. Moisture can be a big problem for your health.

– Weight – A lighter shoe allows you to get more work done with less stress.

The best toning shoes step up the quality of the workout because your options are open to running up hills when you encounter them. You can even race walk if you desire. One word of warning however, if you use them for anything other than exercise with straight forward motion be careful. The way they are built you can easily roll your ankles. Some shoes have dual purpose of assisting with stress and protection of the foot. Some are agile and reactive due to sure soles. A soft sole will give better grip despite the lifespan becomes limited.

The structure of the foot is something that should be taken into consideration when buying shoes. The foot does one of three things according to the pronation of the foot. Normal pronation is when the foot has even surface contact. Over-pronation is where the heel of flat feet makes contact followed by most of the thrust coming from the big toe and second toe. Under-pronation is where the high arched foot makes contact with the heel followed by the foot pushing off at the outside of the foot ending with the outside toes. Most shoe stores have ways of testing the feet or you can do it at home with a wet foot on a brown paper bag. A shoe specialist will help you from there. The rest is up to you.
