One of the best things about walking is that you don't need much equipment. All you need are comfortable shoes, the right clothing and water.

You don't need a fancy pair of walking shoes, just comfortable shoes that give you good support and prevent aches and pains.

If you do want to buy new shoes, pick the right walking shoes, especially those that support a heel-to-toe rolling motion of the foot.

Most importantly, walking shoes can reduce shin pain and injuries, and make walking more enjoyable.

Brand name shoes can last longer and be a worthwhile investment.

Choose a shoe that fits your foot and feels good.

Look for firmness in the heel counter - the part that cups your heel - and good arch support.

Wear the same type of socks you will be using when trying on shoes.

Wear your shoes indoors for a few days to make sure they fit.

Replace worn shoes. If you feel a new type of ache, it might be time for new shoes. - Keep On Walking
