.#Walking is one of the best and simples


.#Walking is one of the best and simplest forms of exercise. All you need is a comfortable pair of shoes and you’re off, anytime, anywhere. No fancy equipment, special facilities, or payment required. Set yourself up for strolling success — with no shin splints, blisters, or aching arches — by choosing the right pair for the job.

{Designate} Your walking (or running) shoes should be just that. Don’t mow the lawn in them or wear them to work. They’ll last longer and support your feet better if they’re dedicated to exercise time.

{Get fitted} Find a knowledgeable salesperson who will measure your foot and watch you walk or run to assess your gait. This way, you’ll find the best brand and model for how you move.

{Replace} After about 350–500 miles, most shoes are shot. If your soles are worn, and you don’t feel the support you once had, it’s time to retire them.

Could you use a new pair of athletic shoes?

I’m a fan of #UnderArmor as they fit my wide feet pretty well, and their outlets are affordable. I am bad about following these rules, but next time I will get properly fitted. Got new shoes last week! Old on the left, now my lawn shoes, and new on the right which I’ll designate for exercise only! http://ow.ly/i/twzYl
