8 Sneakers to Elevate Your Nightly Walks
When it comes to traditional workouts like running, strength training, and cycling, the options for gear, clothes, and yes, shoes are always top of mind. With other forms of exercise like walking, the specifics of gear and shoes often get pushed to the back burner. But don't be fooled: walking is a valuable form of exercise. The lower-impact exercise still allows you to burn calories, increase your heart rate, and strengthen muscles.
So don't for a second discredit the most important piece of gear any walker needs: shoes. These eight pairs from Under Armour not only look good, but they're supportive, cushioned, and structured to support those nightly walks. Get your exercise in the right way and elevate those walks while you're at it.
