Posts for tag: Different Shoes for Walking and Running

Are running shoes good for walking?
 
Both running and walking are forward motions. For both activities you need cushion and shock absorption in your shoes. With similar movements, improper footwear in either activity, can eventually lead to similar foot problems: sprains, strains, stress fractures, tendinitis, and plantar fasciitis.
 
Walking versus running have different gates. Therefore, wear patterns will form on your sneakers at very different rates. So it’s really best not to use the same pair of shoes for the two different activities. Having two separate pairs - One dedicated to running and one to walking is a better idea.
 
If you have any questions regarding the appropriate athletic shoe for your activity please contact one of our Advanced Foot Care offices in: Manhasset, Maspeth, Huntington, Mineola, Plainview, Williston Park, or Coram and one of our award-winning expert podiatrists will be happy to evaluate your problem and answer any of your questions.
