Finding a good walking shoe is important if you walk for exercise or if you are on your feet all day. The most important factor to look for in a new walking shoe is fit. If a walking shoe does not fit you properly, it does not matter how well made it is--it is going to cause you discomfort. Once you get a shoe fitted properly, though, there are a number of extra features you can look out for.

Merrell Chameleon Wrap Slam Gore-Tex XCR
According to the reviewers at walking.org, the Merrell Chameleon Wrap Slam Gore-Tex is the best walking shoe on the market. This shoe has a Gore-Tex XCR gasket construction and fabric lining, with a breathable mesh upper. This means your feet will stay cool and any sweat will be wicked away immediately, preventing discomfort or blistering. This material will also protect your feet from wind or water. There is extra support in the toe and heel, where walkers need it most, and a firm insole to prevent joint injuries.
