    Val, the proper shoe for your foot is important. First, you need to know how you walk, and whether you pronate or supinate, have a high arch, narrow heel, etc. Depending on your foot, different types (not necessarily brands) of shoes are appropriate. (i.e. Motion control, stability for pronation) Most good sporting goods stores can help you with this, some even have the shoes marked for type.

    I also love the shoes that Avon has.

    These are not for everyone, but I use MBT walking shoes.

This is an "unbalanced" shoe that rocks you back and forth and from side to side. You are constantly correcting when you stand still which strengthens legs and core and burns calories.

When you walk in them, they seem to propel you forward.

they are also rather heavy, which I like as I believe I will burn even more calories.

Very expensive, and very long lasting. The shoe comes in all types, and I wear their boots, shoes for work, etc.

They have a website. You can get them in Canada from Walking on a Cloud, I do not know about US retail.

    Avon sells shoes by Curves and I love them and haven't bought a pair since.
