    Hi,

    I hadn’t really considered that running shoes my be bad for walking. I used to wear running shoes to walk the two miles into work. The downside of this was that they wore out quickly as I used to run in them too. I did notice that they wore out on the outside of the heel first. It caused me to have my gait analyzed to get the proper running shoes.

    You make a lot of good points here. I had never thought of the difference between running and walking or the shape of the foot! I think most just buy what is comfortable in the store (where there is lovely cushiony carpeting) without thinking of any of these factors.

    As someone with high arches, I’ve known my shoes were uncomfortable but didn’t think of the damage I could be doing to my feet just through normal motion. I need a new pair of “runners” (nope, walking shoes!)
