I was thrilled to read that MostComfortableShoes.com had revealed the top five sneakers for walking and then I am less than thrilled with the way they look. Despite the fact that some of these sneaks look like my grandma would be sporting 'em, these shoes were made for walking, not for looking good.
Without further ado (because I know you can hardly contain yourself) here are the top five...
|The Brooks Addiction Walker ($88.00) has topped our best fitness walking shoes lists for several years offering strong support, cushioning and supple full grain leather uppers to keep your feet comfortable and healthy.
