6 Comfortable Walking Shoes to Take You Through a Day of Exploring

Getting ready for a summer getaway, or perhaps planning a staycation? If exploring is part of your itinerary, you’ll likely need a pair of walking shoes to help you comfortably navigate a day of sightseeing or light trekking.

While lots of shoe brands today offer styles with comfort elements, core comfort brands tend to put more R&D into their products for a higher level of performance. Here, FN has curated men’s and women’s walking styles that can go the distance.
