Decided to get another pair of walking shoes. I need a great pair this time. I would prefer if the shoes are designed and made for us heavy people, that way I can be certain the shoes will work as intended and not just be compressed as soon as I put any weight on my feet.
I stopped by a sporting goods store today, but the seller looked at me like I my head was screwed on the wrong way when I asked if they had any shoes specially made for heavy people. His reply was; heavy people don’t buy shoes like this and they never stick to exercise.
Needless to say, I was done in that store.
So are there anyone that have come across a pair of great walking shoes you can recommend? Like a sneaker/trainer style but it will not be used for running, only walking. I use EU size 45, US 11 and UK 10.5. I have a big wrist so the “opening” of the shoe needs to be wide, and the internal height should also be on the roomy side. I did an impulse buy online for a pair of Adidas Alphabounce. I didn’t notice the shoe does not have a traditional tongue, rather it had an elastic band across the the top of the tongue, in which was none removable and restricted the opening. I couldn’t even get my feet into the shoe. And I went up half a size because I ordered online. So had to return those.
I got another Adidas Alphabounce Rc 2.0 and those are working well for me, but I need another pair and thought to ask if anyone came across special shoes for us fatty folks?
If not, you might have a favorite shoe for walking that helps take the jonit stress away. I am not locked into any brands and all models will be considered.
