Picking Out The Perfect Walking Shoes

If you're gearing up to get in shape for the New Year, you'll probably need to invest in a new pair of sneakers.  Before you buy those walking shoes, remember these tips. 
  • Shop at the end of the day.  That's when your feet are the largest.  If you're going to take your walks in the mornings, just adjust your fit with socks.
  • Take a pair of your walking socks with you to the store so you can try them on with the sneakers.  This will help you to get the right fit.
  • Get your feet measured at the store.  As you get older, your feet tend to flatten out and as you walk, your feet tend to swell.  Most foot problems among women are a result of wearing too small a shoe.  Ladies, stop worrying about your shoe size!  Buy a size that fits comfortably.
  • When trying on sneakers, you need at least a fingers width beyond the end of your big toe.  Make sure you are standing up when you measure this.
Sneakers should feel great on your feet before you buy them.
