Runner Up: Asics GEL-Motion
With a seal of approval from the American Podiatric Medical Association, this shoe packs extra cushioning in the heel and forefoot for instant shock absorption. Bonus: The custom-fit sock liner wicks away moisture as you walk. "These shoes were sturdy and look great -- I could walk in them for miles," Sidlar says ($100, asics.com for info).
