NOTE: I used them for dry trails or city walks everywhere. However, don't wear them when walking the white sand deserts. The mesh allows the small space around your feet to fill up with sand. (JUL 2021)

Wearing heels for ten years as a flight attendant, I woke up with Plantar Fasciitis and Metatarsalgia, which caused extreme heel and ball-of-feet pain. That was five years ago. Today I walk an average of 5 miles a day w pain-free. I rotate between two different shoe styles, place extra inserts, and wear crocks or recovery shoes at home. They are all listed here.

I have personally tested the shoes listed to be the most comfortable for long walks exploring cities or ruins or hiking long treks in the woods, or taking long walks on sandy beaches. Mobility is freedom, and comfortable mobility is simply luxurious.

  • The game-changing Bondi is the most cushioned shoe in HOKA ONE ONEs road-shoe lineup. The Bondi 6 offers a smooth, balanced ride delivered by the full EVA midsole, the comfortable and breathable upper, and our Meta-Rocker technology. Click link for more product details: https://amzn.to/39u23bb
