This is the best woman's walking shoe I've seen. But it is not the best walking shoe I've seen. Men's are better.
When are manufacturers going to make women''s walking shoes as good as men's walking shoes? Only when women ask them for it!
This pair almost is as good except for one thing: the sole and heel are not as thick as a man's walking shoe. That affects the impact the leg and foot and hip feel when walking on concrete.
However, if you're going to use a women's walking shoe for walking long distances on concrete, this is the best I've seen.
I used men's walking shoes to walk through cities all over Europe, and it worked great, and i would still be using them but the arch etc are wrong for women's feet, and mine just will not suffer that anymore.
