Walking Shoes

Walking shoes matter most. They prevent blisters. Ask an expert at specialist shoe stores to help you choose shoes for your stride, size, and fitness goals.

Comfortable Socks

Socks are helpful for doing out because they give stability to your feet and ankles, protect against blisters, and lengthen the life of your shoes' internal structures.

Water Bottle

Bring a water bottle for walks over 30 minutes or activity in hot weather. Hydration cools and lubricates joints. Before walking, freeze water bottles.

Appropriate Layers

Loose clothes allow movement. Sweat-wicking clothes. Cotton T-shirts dry slowly. Jackets and long-sleeved athletic shirts regulate body temperature in changing weather.



Before going outside, apply at least 30 SPF sunscreen and reapply every two hours or more, depending on sweating. The American Cancer Society recommends "broad-spectrum" UVA/UVB sunscreens.

Fitness tracker

Walkers love fitness monitors because they can measure their steps, calories burnt, distance, heart rate, and exercise time. Fitness monitors may boost exercise.

Headphones or Earbuds

Music improves stamina. Smartphones need caution. Harvard Health says texting while walking decreases your stride, balance, and ability to hear cars, animals, and people.

Route Plan

Pedestrian paths are safer. Walk paths or sidewalks. Strava and Map My Walk offer routes from other walkers and runners to find nice strolling areas.
