Clarks has changed their line of shoes. If you go to a Clark's store, they should be able to help you find a shoe that is similar to this one. The shoe has a good toe spring to it and the clarks wave may be an acceptable shoe.

Distinguishing between walking and running shoes

Walking and running shoes while they may look very similar to you when you first see them are not designed to function in the same way. They were each made with a specific motion in mind. For running there is more padding in the heel of the shoe because this is the part of the foot that takes the most impact when you run, walking shoes are made to be more flexible. Walking shoes are made to support the rolling motion that your foot makes while you walk, this is a different motion from the stride of a runner.

Along with the different stride running shoes are designed to stabalize and propel the runner forward so the shoes have a very slight angle. If you are looking for walking shoes you don't need this angle because you roll through the step using your whole foot.

If you ever have seen a pair of running and walking shoes next to each other the one most distinguishing feature is that of the heel shape. Running shoes are designed to give the runner more stability so the heels will be flaired. Since a walker's foot hits the ground heel first the flaired heel will be in the way of the smooth rolling motion of the foot. When looking for a running shoe make sure that the heels are straight or undercut not flaired.

Running shoes are also made with considerable more mesh materials to ventalate the foot because of the amount of sweat that is produced while running.

Finally you can check the flexability of the shoe. Walking shoes should bend at more towards the front of your foot because walkers push off with their toes. Running shoes will have a bend closer the middle of the foot because runners push off with the balls of their feet.

Like all sports you have to make sure that you are using the right equipment to prevent injury. Even though the shoes may look very similar using walking shoes for running or walking shoes for running can cause injury to your feet, legs and knees. So be careful!

I am single and lonely and have a hard time ************

This doesn't sound like a shoe problem directly. However, if you get a good pair of walking shoes and walk where others are, you can meet people and talk to them. This will decrease the loneliness. Walking and physical exercise has always been shown to help move the contents of the bowels along and decrease constipation.

How can you tell if your walking shoe is a good fit?

A good fitting shoe will be snug around your foot but not tight and squeezing. You need to be able to wiggle your toes but if it's too loose you will be scrunching your toes to keep it secure.

Is it a good idea to buy two pairs of walking shoes?

Walking shoes can be expensive, but it's a good idea to buy 2 pairs if you can and to alternate between them as it gives the shoes time to bounce back between walks.

When I buy new walking shoes, should I wear them to go walking straight away?

No - I wouldn't wear new walking shoes straight away. You need to wear them in a bit. I always wear my new shoes around the house for a few days. This has the advantage of letting you figure out if they are going to be good for you before you head out walking and get blisters etc. also if you some reason you want to exchange the shoes, the shop won't take them back if they are scuffed from having been worn outside.

I love walking and last year bought some great walking shoes. They still seem in a good condition. When do I need to replace them?

Ideally, walking shoes should be replaced every 300 to 500 miles which for an average committed walker would be between 3 and 6 months. Don't judge it by how the shoe looks as the inner support could be worn away but the shoe still look great. You will feel the difference between an old and a new shoe.

Do you need special hiking shoes for going on long walks?

Whether or not to buy hiking shoes really depends on what kind of walking you plan to do and how often.
Hiking boots are helpful for rougher terrain and for gripping. If you plan to mostly walk on flat ground, you can consider getting good walking shoes instead.

How to select a good walking shoes? Coul dyou recommend me on a good pair?

People are always asking for shoe recommendations. I don't like to make specific shoe recommendations because everyone's foot is different and people have different walking styles. But there are a few basics for selecting walking shoes: 1.Look for a low, supportive heel that rounds (or bevels) in. A thick heel or one that flairs out will cause your foot to slap down rather than roll. 2. A walker's foot hits heel first and then rolls gradually from heel-to-toe. So, you will need a flexible sole and more bend in the toe than a runner. 3.Next, look for a shoe that is light weight and breathable. The last thing you want is the clunky heavy leather walking shoe.
4. The most important thing of course is a shoe that fits properly. Be sure your foot has enough room in the toe box. There should be a thumbnails width (or about a half inch) between your toes and the end of the shoe.5. Go shoe shopping at the end of the day or after your walk when your feet may be slightly swollen. 6. Do not shop when you are in a hurry. 7.Wear your shoes in the house for a few days to try them out.
