Top 5 Walking Shoes for Women
These shoes are made for walking and that's just what they'll do!
Historically, women’s comfort has always taken a back seat when it comes to shoes – or anything else really – but things took a turn for the better as we advance as a civilization. Nowadays, like men, there are plenty of women’s footwear out there that are light and cool to wear so you can avoid having sweaty and stinky feet after just having a brisk walk around the neighborhood, and they also come with enough cushioning and support so you can avoid getting painful blisters from just walking.
So, if you’re looking for some top-of-the-line women’s walking or running shoes, let’s just cut the riff-raff and dive right in!
1. ASICS Women's Gel-Quantum 180 4 Sneakers
Designed by one of the world’s leading footwear companies, ASICS, the Gel-Quantum 180 4 Sneakers are the pure definition of comfortable footwear. Not only are they well-cushioned and supportive due to the proprietary rearfoot and forefoot gel brand technology cushioning system, but these sneakers also come in 11 different colors so you could choose the one you like, whether it is black or bright pink. These shoes are great for jogging too!
2. TIOSEBON Women's Athletic Walking Shoes
Unlike other types of shoes that are only comfortable when you had socks on, Tiosebon’s Athletic Walking Shoes are designed to be as comfortable as if you’re wearing socks when you aren’t. Besides the ease of the slip-on feature, the mesh design even helps to air out your feet when you’re wearing the shoes, preventing sweat buildups and letting your feet “breath”. If you have wide feet, you’ll find that the mesh helps a lot as well. Best yet, when it comes down to the price, Tiosebon’s Athletic Walking Shoes give you the best bang for your buck. They also come in multiple colors.
3. New Balance Women's FuelCore Nergize V1 Cross Trainer
“I’ve spent years of my life learning how to tie my shoelaces and I want a shoe that has laces for me to work with, damn it!” Well, if you feel so strongly about getting comfortable shoes as you do shoelaces, you’ll want to check out New Balance’s FuelCore Nergize V1 Cross Trainer. Aside from excellent cushioning due to New Balance’s Memory Sole Comfort insert and being incredibly lightweight, the laces here provide some manner of support when it comes to fitting the shoe to your feet. Unlike Tiosebon’s Athletic Walking Shoes however, this pair of trainers only have a swathe of mesh in front of the shoe, offering your feet the breathability they need to not become too sweaty and yet, giving you some extra support – and not being so squishy – for your heel.
4. Adidas Women's Ultraboost 19 Running Shoe
Despite its name, this pair of Ultraboost 19 shoes are not designed only for running – they are perfect for walking too! These shoes have extra double cushioning under the arch and in the sole where pockets of air that help to further cushion any impact during walking or running. Like New Balance’s FuelCore Nergize V1 Cross Trainer, these shoes come with laces that can conform its mesh body to your feet, giving your feet additional support. However, probably due to the branding and also the quality materials they use, the Ultraboost 19 Running Shoe has a slightly higher price tag.
5. Ryka Women's Devotion Plus 3 Walking Shoe
Ryka is an up-and-coming women’s shoe brand that is famed for engineering its shoes based on women’s foot shape, allowing it to provide the level of comfort that’s literally unheard of. Its sole is even designed to match a women’s feet anatomy. Though, the shoes only come in 3 colors and the style might not suit everyone’s tastes. Oddly enough, for a small brand that’s still comparatively new to the market, Ryka’s shoes are priced even higher than some established brands, but who are we to argue about price when the quality it delivers is nothing short of top-notch. Definitely the shoes that’s worth a look if you have a bit more money to spend on getting both quality and a unique style.
