New Balance 76- Walking Shoe The Best Walking Shoe

New Balance 760 Walking Shoe
This supportive sneak not only looks like a running shoe but also feels as light and breathable as one. Its lower-to-the-ground profile trims drag from your step, and a flexible outsole divided down the center promotes a well-aligned roll-off. "These shoes practically formed to my feet. I was so at ease in them that I ended up walking faster than my normal pace," one tester says. ($85, newbalance.com)

Footnote: Flexibility is key when it comes to walking shoes. Mindy Anaya, 30, of Santa Maria, California, says the give and take she got from the New Balance 760 was just right. "Two days of shopping with my mom and sister, and my feet didn't hurt at all!"
