Walking offers many benefits and the barrier of entry to get yourself into the rhythm is minimal. As with any exercise, you need the right materials in order to do it properly and feel good while doing it. We’ve gathered some of the best, most comfortable walking shoes for all sorts of walkers — whether you’re the type to do a leisurely stroll or perhaps a just-under-a-jog brisk walk.

1Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoe

Don’t let the name “running shoe” fool you — these lightweight, affordable shoes are perfect walking shoes. But, lest you have dreams of going on speedier walks, these can take you everywhere from a walk in the park to running errands to jogging around a track.

2TEVA Quick-Drying Sport Sandal

Tevas have a cult-like following for a reason: They’re extremely easy to pack in your bag for a trip, they’re waterproof, and they’re as comfortable for walks through your neighborhood as they are in a forest. We wouldn’t blame you if you bought them in multiple colors. 

3The 411 V1 Walking Shoe

Looking for something unfussy and soft on your arches? Look no further. These babies are cloud-like under your feet and even better: They’re easy to clean.

4Skechers Go Walk Joy Sneaker

We’re big fans of shoes you can slide on and off with ease and these fit that bill. They’re aces in terms of comfort, have excellent traction on various surfaces, and won’t ever have you fearing you’re going to trip over some untied laces.

5ASICS Gel-Venture Running Shoes babies are top-rated, beloved for their comfort, come in a variety of colors and widths, and have a price point that fits many budgets. Need we say more?
