If your New Year's Resolution is to walk:
Walking is a great New Year's Resolution! It benefits your whole body. One key thing that can make or break your walk is your footwear choice. For this activity, we suggest a walking shoe. Ideally, walking shoes should be lightweight with extra shock absorption in the heel and ball of the foot. This helps to cut down on potential foot tenderness that can happen from a long walk. We have a wide array of styles, colors, and brands of walking shoes for both men and women. Click here to view all of our Walking Shoes.
If your New Year's Resolution is to join a gym:
The gym is full of possibilities! It offers a slew of fitness options such as weights, treadmills, group classes, and exercise machines. With so many possibilities, how do you know which type of shoe to wear? If you're looking for one shoe to take you from sport to sport, we recommend cross trainers!

If your New Year's Resolution is to run:
Proper footwear is crucial to your run.

If you're just wanting a leisurely run with some tunes around the neighborhood or plan to train for a race, these styles for men and women are sure to keep your feet supported every step of the way!
