Asics Gel-Tech Walker Neo 2 The Best Walking Shoes Runner-Up: Asics Gel-Tech Walker Neo 2

"The cushioning feels wonderful!" in this standout walking shoe, striders gush, thanks to gel pockets in the heel and forefoot. "No-slip" memory foam in the heel and an asymmetrical lacing system deliver the "perfect fit"; there is even strategically placed flexibility fabric in the big toe's bunion zone. The shock-absorbing foam midsole helps "keep knees and ankles from getting fatigued," and the guidance system nudges you to stride straighter. ($100, asicsamerica.com for stores)
