Outdoor Trainers Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, as long as they’re comfortable to wear, outdoor trainers can be a great choice for walking long distances. They’re light, so put less strain on your legs than big clunky shoes, and they also have plenty of cushioning to support your feet for the whole distance.
A lot depends on personal preference. But generally speaking, if you’re walking over relatively flat surfaces then outdoor trainers will do just fine, whereas shoes may be better for uneven rocky terrain.
Running shoes tend to have a much stiffer and thicker heel than trainers for wearing outdoors. They will also provide cushioning that is designed more for a running gait than a walking one. It’s important to wear the correct footwear to match your activities, for comfort and to avoid the risk of injury.
