Health Tip: Choosing Walking Shoes
Whether you are a walker or a jogger, you need the right shoe for the right activity. A good walking shoe should have a soft upper, good shock absorption, a smooth tread and a sole that allows your foot to roll through its walking motion, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). A good jogging shoe should have adequate cushioning, flexibility, stability in the heel, lightness and good traction, the AAOS says.
