Case in point, runners hit different parts of foot requiring heavier shoes with heels. Whereas walkers should look for a lighter shoe, keeping flexibility in mind, that provides adequate cushioning and with least difference in heel through the toe.Attention should be given to the actual heel,because in certain shoes style, the outer heel looks higher than it actually is inside.
