Fabulous walking shoe!
on January 22, 2012
After walking a half-marathon on New Year's Eve and a 5K on New Year's Day, my left foot was killing me. The doctor diagnosed it as tendonitis and advised me to obtain arch supports. I started with the cheap ones with no improvement, so I tried the specialty shoe store where I tried on a $175 pair of walking shoes. Though they felt great, they were too clunky and geriatric for my taste. I researched online walking shoes and found the Saucony ones. I cannot say enough about how wonderful these shoes are. I wear 8-8 1/2 shoes usually, and since I am on my feet a lot at work, I opted for the larger size. They fit perfect!
If you never tried walking shoes before, they have a stiff sole (unlike running shoes). The only bend in the shoe is at the toe. The leather is quality and looks clean and attractive. I like the large toe box that offers a lot of space for my toes to move and expand. There are reflectors on the back to improve night visibility. Best part, I did not find these shoes any cheaper anywhere else.
If you walk a lot, like me, try these shoes. They are a great shoe at a great price.
