I joined a walking challenge with an Exercise group. For August, we have to do 5 miles worth of exercise. Im able to do it but my feet hurt. I guess I need some advice on how to keep my feet healthy and happy, before during and aftef my 5 miles. I probably need bettet sneakers, but I dont know where to start. I want to be able to do it every day. Thanks so much! Liz

It's great that you joined a walking challenge! You'll find salespeople who know a lot about shoes and feet by going to a store that specializes in running shoes. You don't have to run to take advantage of their knowledge. Everyone's feet are different, and finding a shoe that fits your feet and feels good to you is going to help you reach your goal of daily exercise. ~Lynn @Glucerna

I also like New Balance shoes. For walking the dogs, I wear sketchers walking shoes. They are lite and just slip on. I love them so much I have worn out the souls. Time for a new pair.

I have had problems with my feet since I was born
"New Balance" is one of the few brands of shoes that do it for me.
