The best men's walking shoes for 2019 include some of the most popular shoes that have been favorites for several years as well as some new additions to the list.

The sneakers that made the list are Asics, New Balance, Saucony, and Brooks. You'll find recommendations for those with flat feet, high arches, overpronation and underpronation.

Before you take a look at the list of best walking shoes for men below, take a moment to think about your foot type. What type of arches do you have? Do you tend to overpronate or underpronate? I've divided the list of shoes into categories based on what foot type they are designed for - neutral, stability or motion control, to ensure you find the sneaker that will fit your feet the best.

Knowing whether you need a neutral, stability or motion control shoe will save you from foot pain, injuries and back and joint pain. Take a quick minute to look at this article about the best walking shoes which will walk you through the process of determining what type of shoe you need to wear. It will help you narrow down your options and maximize your comfort.

Best Men's Walking Shoes


Neutral walking shoes are for those who have high arches and/or are under-pronators (also knows as supinators). Neutral shoes have a lot of cushioning which provides great shock absorbency for high arches. They also provide cushioning along the outside of the shoe for those supinators whose feet roll outward.


Stability shoes are recommended for normal foot types. They are also good for overpronators because they provide some arch control.

Motion Control

Motion control shoes are best for those with flat feet or moderate to sever overpronation.

These shoes made the best rated men's walking shoes list because of the following characteristics: comfort, support, flexibility, motion control and price. These are all features that make up a good walking shoe.

There are a lot of great recommendations here. You'll find picks for the best walking shoes for flat feet. You'll also find the best walking shoes for high arches, too.

And finally, purchase your shoes from a store that has a good return or exchange policy. The shoes may feel comfortable in the store, but it is very possible to develop pain after wearing them for a few days. Find a store that will let you bring them back and at least exchange them.

This list of best men's walking shoes will help you find the perfect pair for your feet. Remember, there isn't a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to finding the best pair of sneakers for your feet. You've got to try each pair on to ensure that they feel comfortable.

One of my favorite shoe stores is Road Runner Sports. They have a GREAT exchange policy. You can wear the shoes for 60 days and then exchange them if they aren't comfortable. If you purchased the wrong pair of shoes for your feet, you will know within a few days of walking in them. So this exchange policy is perfect for someone who wants to walk in his shoes to determine if they are a good fit.
