Shop ASICS walking shoes for the ultimate everyday comfort

Whether you walk for fitness, leisure or work, ASICS walking shoes can help you get the most out of your exercise while supporting the natural motion of your foot and lower limbs. Our shoes are designed to provide comfort, durability and support for walkers of all levels, using ASICS technologies such as GEL™ technology, TRUSSTIC SYSTEM™ and DUOMAX™ support. ASICS walking shoes provide you with a range of options to suit your lifestyle.

Which type of shoes are best for walking?

When considering walking shoes, think about your walking habits and needs. ASICS shoes for walking include the highly cushioned WALKRIDE™ FF, the GEL-CONTEND™ athletic walker and the durable and versatile GEL-ODYS™.

If you occasionally break into a jog, you may enjoy the GEL-EXCITE™ 9, which is a solid walking platform that also features the same GEL™ technology found in our top tier running shoes. The podiatrist-recommended GT-1000™ is designed for an active lifestyle that includes light running, walking, or visits to the gym. In addition to FLYTEFOAM™ cushioning and GEL™ technology, LITETRUSS™ at the midsole reduces pronation.

Heading off the pavement? GEL-EXCITE™ TRAIL shoe puts you outdoors on more challenging terrain. Supportive overlays keep your feet more stable on rocky paths and loose dirt. Its durable construction and rugged outsole pattern gives you better traction over miles of off-road surfaces.

Is it OK to wear running shoes for walking?

If you are not covering much distance and if you are not long on your feet, running shoes are ok to use for walking. For your comfort and well-being, however, it is worth investing in walking shoes.

Walking shoes have a more flexible sole to support your foot as it rolls from heel to the ball of your foot through the toe. You want less heel height in walking shoes, but with more width for side to side stability. Lastly, durability and solid support for comfort while standing and in the neutral position of your foot through your walking gait is more important than extremely light weight.

Are ASICS walking shoes recommended by podiatrists?

Even if you don't worry about pronation or arch support, buying shoes that promote foot health is still a good idea for everyone. Preventing issues is easier than resolving them. The American Podiatric Medical Association has recognized several ASICS shoes for foot health. The ASICS GT-1000™ 11 in particular is recommended by podiatrists. Arch support provides all day comfort, walking or standing, and LITETRUSS™ at the midsole reduces pronation.
