“A doctor told me that the key to staying active is to keep moving, and my footwear collection features styles you can wear all day, every day,” said Foreman. “Millions of Americans are affected by arthritis, and if you’re over 40 or have knee pain like I did, then these shoes are for you.”

Lee Cox, president of FootSmart.com, added, “We are excited to work with the legendary athlete on this collaboration to offer the key 40+ demographic a walking  shoe collection unlike any on the market. Merging innovative technology developed at Stanford University on Longevity, one of the leading research facilities for technological advances to help people live longer lives, the new line is valuable to the FootSmart.com product assortment.”
