How do I find comfortable walking shoes?

Remember, there is a difference in shoes designed specifically for walking and those designed for running. Finding the right walking shoes for you can enhance your performance and decrease your risk of pain or injuries from using the wrong kind of shoes. Picking the Right Walking Shoe describes the "The Twist 'em, Bend 'em, Poke 'em Shoe Test" for finding comfortable shoes.
