Q: I really want to make a New Year’s Resolution to exercise more, especially walking and getting in shape. Do you have any suggestions for really comfortable fitness shoes that might actually encourage me to keep my resolution for more than a week or two?
A: I know how hard it is to keep those resolutions, especially when they involve exercise! But remember it’s a New Year, new you and at FootSmart, we have the shoes you need to help get you there. No excuses! FootSmart carries athletic shoes from leading comfort brands in hard-to-find sizes and widths.
For great all-around walking shoes, for example, check out the Saucony Grid Integrity. With added stretch and cushioning, they offer smooth walking with a pressure-free fit. Similarly, the Spira Classic Walker gives lots of cushioning thanks to patented WaveSpring technology. Stainless steel springs in the heel and forefoot minimize impact, reducing fatigue, stress and shock on your feet. Another pair of shoes that will keep you comfortable and help your overall body alignment is the podiatrist-designed Orthaheel Action Walker. These patented, orthotic walking shoes are designed to realign your foot to its natural position, which improves posture and relieves heel and arch pain. If you’re looking for a more challenging workout that’s easy on your joints, low-impact exercise may be a good choice for you! In addition to walking, you might try step aerobics, cycling, swimming or rowing. Whatever activity you choose, make sure to add upper body movements, go faster and use big motions to get the most from your workout. So what are you waiting for? Ring in the New Year and all your fitness resolutions with help from FootSmart!
