I am going on a business trip soon and I need to find how to choose the best footwear for walking long distances. I am going to a convention and there is going to be a lot of land to cover so I want to be comfortable. I know for sure I won’t be wearing stilettos but as it is a business trip, I should probably leave the flip flops at home! So, with that being said, I decided to go on a hunt for what would be the best footwear for all the traveling I would be doing. I am thinking I am going to be walking in upwards of 8-10 miles in a day, so I better choose wisely right?! Here are some really great suggestions I found for the top styles for what I need:
How To Choose The Best Boots For Walking Long Distances
- Flexibility: You need a shoe that has plenty of flexibility. When you try on the shoe, make sure you are able to comfortably move your ankle and foot in all directions. If the shoe is too stiff and doesn’t yield you enough movement, you will play heck getting it broken in.
- Heel: For the optimal fit and comfort in a walking shoe, you should have little or no heel. For the most comfortable shoe if you are planning on taking a long walk or two, a flat shoe is the best bet.
- Boots or Shoes? This is the great debate! Many people feel you can’t even consider a boot for walking while others say they are the only way to go. The best way to decide would be on the boot itself. If you are planning on taking a hike in your Doc Martens, you may want to rethink that idea. I love me some Doc’s, but not to walk 10 miles in! If I am going to wear a pair of boots for walking (yes, that was a wave at Nancy Sinatra), there is only one company I would consider; Ahnu Footwear. The footwear made by Ahnu are some of the most comfortable and well-made I have ever put my pretty little feet in!
Stylish Boots For Women
When I was searching for stylish boots for women, I knew if I contacted Abby, she would steer me in the right direction. I always have such a hard time choosing the best shoe from Ahnu that I give in and let Abby decide for me! I gave her a few styles I liked and she chose the Belmont ($150.00) in brown. This boot is so stinking comfortable and good looking that I could not believe it! These boots can be worn with jeans, leggings and a big sweater or a cute dress or skirt with tights. I was feeling a little crazy on picture day, so I chose the dress and knee socks to pair up with my Belmont boots. These boots will be perfect for my trip. I could (and will) wear these all day and at the end of the day, my feet will feel as good then as they did when I first put them on. If you want some great looking footwear that is going to last you for a long time, you can’t go wrong with Ahnu.
