What should a walking shoe for men be like?

Walking-Schuhe HerrenA walking shoe for men should have the following features to ensure maximum comfort and performance:

   ✓ Good cushioning: Gentle on the joints and effective shock absorption, particularly important for longer distances.
   ✓ Flexibility: Supports the natural rolling motion for a comfortable walking sensation.
   ✓ Low weight: Reduces fatigue and enables longer wearing times.
   ✓ Breathability: Ensures a pleasant foot climate and prevents excessive sweating.
   ✓ Stable sole: Provides good grip on different surfaces and minimises the risk of slipping.
   ✓ Wide toe box: Offers men with wider feet enough space to avoid pressure points and blisters.
   ✓ Ergonomic fit: follows the natural contours of the foot and provides optimum support for the heel and ball of the foot.
   ✓ Waterproof or water-repellent: Ideal for outdoor activities, keeps feet dry in wet weather.
   ✓ Durability: High-quality materials and robust workmanship for a long service life.
   ✓ Effective lacing: Ensures a tight fit and prevents slipping, increases comfort and reduces the risk of injury.

A walking shoe that combines all these features offers men optimum comfort, protection and support during any walking activity.

What is the difference between a running shoe and a walking shoe?

Running shoes and walking shoes for men differ mainly in their construction and function. Running shoes have more cushioning in the heel area to absorb the impact of running, while walking shoes have more even cushioning for the natural rolling motion. Running shoes are more flexible and lighter in the forefoot area, with breathable materials that prevent frequent sweating. Walking shoes, on the other hand, are evenly flexible over the entire sole, weatherproof and slightly heavier for more stability. The fit of running shoes is tighter to ensure a secure fit, while walking shoes for men have a roomier toe box and an ergonomic fit to prevent pressure points and blisters and maximise walking comfort.

Nordic walking shoes for men with wide feet

Men with wide feet who walk and hike a lot need shoes that offer both comfort and stability. Our walking shoes for men are specially designed to meet these needs. With a wide toe box, they offer enough space to prevent pressure points and ensure a natural walking sensation. The excellent cushioning properties and innovative sole technology also offer optimum comfort and support over long distances.

Our walking shoes for men with a wide foot are the ideal choice for anyone who doesn't want to compromise on comfort and functionality during their outdoor activities. Discover our entire collection of men's shoes with a wide foot and find the perfect pair for your needs.

Comfort and protection in wet conditions - men's walking shoes with lotus blossom effect

Some of our models are equipped with a WR finish that imitates the "lotus flower effect". This means that the outer material does not absorb water, but allows it to roll off in droplets. Despite this water-repellent property, the outer material remains light and breathable.

It is important to know that WR waterproofing is not "waterproof", but only "water-repellent". To ensure dry feet even in heavy or persistent rain, a membrane is required that makes the shoe completely waterproof. Light rain is easily kept out by the water-repellent material, but there is always the possibility of water seeping in through the tongue of the shoe. The functionality of our WR waterproofing is not designed for heavy rain and will deteriorate over time.

We also offer models with uppers made from terracare® cowhide nubuck, which is also water-repellent. These materials not only guarantee protection from the wet, but also durability and excellent breathability. Discover our selection of waterproof and water-repellent walking shoes that offer you comfort and protection in all weathers.
