Walking Shoe Wishlist for all the Family Spring 2016

I am trying to walk as much as possible but in the back of my mind I have been thinking about getting some new walking shoes.  It is important to wear the correct shoes for the form of exercise you are undertaking as by not doing so you run the risk of causing damage to various parts of your body from the soles of the feet and arches to the heels, ankles, knees and lower back.  So you see it is far more important than people realise to make sure that they have the correct type of shoe.

I was looking for a walking shoe for myself that provided support, cushioning wouldn’t cause blisters and was also reasonably priced.

I decided to put together a mini walking shoe wishlist for all the family as realistically we should all be partaking in this basic and free form of exercise.

For the ladies these walking boots looked ideal and appear to tick all the right boxes.

Walking 1Walking 2They look great, appear to offer suitable support and look as if they would be comfortable.  I also love the slight touch of pink that is feminine but at the same time not over bearing.

For the men I thought these walking boots looked trendy and extremely comfortable and even if the kids are bugging when you are out and about these shoes won’t!

How cute are these!!!!!

I am sure Mr Squishy would look great in those blue ones.  There is of course a larger range available than what I have selected over on the Brantano website and they have styles and sizes to suit age groups not covered here.  Just a quick word of advice, it is generally best to have at least two pairs of walking shoes if you walk regularly.  Make sure you alternate between both pairs of shoes to help keep them dry and aerated and reduce the buildup of bacteria which will result in them developing unpleasant aromas.

What do you think of my choices, do you prefer any others on the Brantano site?

  18. I Do So very much agree about how footwear should be perfectly made to cater for our feet so that they are kept healthy through all our daily Actions in life . But I myself find the Price to be so so expensive for Me & Also my daughters Find it hard to pay the price for them too , we have to resort to the Sale items of a cheaper make that is not as good for our feet .
