For the non-athletes, a sneaker is just that — a sneaker. And any drastic difference in purpose and effectiveness may come off as unnecessary, or worse, gimmicky. That's until you have blisters that prove otherwise. So whether the sunnier days have you taking longer strolls or currently aspiring to, allow these top-rated sneakers for walking to put some pep in your step.
