Nike Shox Walk
The Nike Shox Walk not only has spring in the heel, it also features an extra strip of arch support in its sole to keep your foot from rolling. And with a nook for the Nike Plus microchip, you can keep track of your mileage as you jam to your iPod.
Our tester says: "Wearing the Shox Walk was like walking on a cloud. They were supportive, but didn't weigh me down." — Rana Kahl, 41, from Manassas, Virginia, is a breast cancer survivor training for the 60-mile Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in Washington, D.C., October 3 to 5.
