Merrells for the Serious Walker

A little bit expensive and probably why I have listed this one last, never the less, if you are serious about walking then these Merrell Waterproof Walking Shoes are the ones you should be considering.

Merrell has thrown in a lot of technologies so that you are protected from the elements and yet remain comfortable.

The upper is mad from a strobel construction that gives you both flexibility and comfort. The tongue keeps dust etc out whilst the GORE-TEX performance comfort footwear lining gives protection to the feet.

Merrells has also designed their shoe with breathable mesh lining which is treated with Aegis antimicrobial solution that gives you pretty nice foot comfort. There is also a moulded compressed EVA and Air custom midsole that provides ample comfort which will keep you going and going, indeed a very nice shoe for the serious walker.

      I'm a fan of New Balance... they make their shoes wide, so they fit me well.
