Best Nike Walking Shoes: 2017 Edition

When you have the perfect fitting pair of walking shoes, you can feel invincible: and the same happens when you use some that do not fit: they can ruin your foot completely. Conveniently, the simplicity of this exercise makes having good sneakers the only thing you have to worry about.

When we run, our feet, along with our ankles and knees receive the impact of our weight multiplied by seven, and there are brands, like Nike, that especially focus of relieving the tension. There are now hundreds of models and brands of sneakers, so if you are starting out or just looking for a change, choosing the perfect footwear that suits your needs is a must.

Choose the shoe compatible with your foot type

foot type

For the neutral arch foot, the sports shoes with stability are the suitable ones. Made with supreme durability and cushioning, these shoes offer medium support.

To facilitate foot movement, people with a high arch need to wear cushioned shoes; these have a soft, curved or semi-curved midsole (see article "Shoes for high arches" for this).

Take note of the size

And make sure the shoes fit your foot. Some people who walk regularly, however, confuse proper fit with it being tight. But with tight shoes, you could end up with knees pain, bunions, buried blisters and nails. The shoe with the most suitable space leaves about a half inch on the toe, providing enough room for when the foot swells during the run (see article about "Long distance shoes").

The best shoe holds the foot in place comfortably so that when running or walking, the heel does not slip up or down. Nike walking shoes are perfect for firmly grasped foot that does not experience movement or lacks stability during a walking/sprinting session.

Lighter does not mean better

It does not matter if you fell in love with the discreet and light model you saw in the case, many times less is not more.

Be realistic about the surface where we run; if you are running in harsh conditions or concrete, not all light shoes have the impact absorption you need to do this sport in the city.

A minimalist sneaker means that the shoe has less protection, a more flexible bow, and a heel closer to the floor, which means harsher impact.
