The Best Walking Shoes for Women

Too often we find ourselves having to choose between grandma shoes and cute, yet impractical footwear on vacation—a decision that makes packing a nightmare, and getting ready in the morning an hours-long affair. To put an end to this dilemma for once and for all, we went out in search of the best walking shoes for women. What we found? Sporty slip-ons, espadrille sneakers, and platform runners that add height without the heel. You can thank us later.
