Why is it essential to have good support?
Anatomical arch support re-aligns the foot and body, helping ease pain on the foot and heel, all the way up your knees, hips, and lower back.

How does the shoe ensure support?
Each pair of our shoes features a podiatrist-approved built-in arch support insole (removable) that fits your foot perfectly. There's also a deep heel cup and TPU stabilizer to keep your foot firmly in place for optimal support.

Why are cushioning shoes comfortable?
When your move, the shock wave generated by each impact with the ground corresponds to approximately 3 times your weight. This wave runs from the heel to the top of the spinal column. Your joints act as shock absorbers, but this puts a lot of pressure on them. The ergonomic EVA cushioning sole can absorb and disperse impact.

How do we guarantee excellent cushioning in our shoes?
The WalkHero shoe's cushioning is provided by an outsole made of unique, flexible, soft EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) foam, and we've also included our "Ergonomic System" technology: air holes in the foam at the heel make the sole more effective, more comfortable shock wave evenly dispersed.

Why stretchable knitted upper?
This material stretches in many directions for additional comfort and provides more room in the shoe, when needed to form to the contours of your feet, easing pressure on feet. This upper also allows your feet to breathe freely and avoid odors. Ultra-lightweight is also one of the important reasons why we choose this material.

Why should shoes be lightweight?
Lighter shoes will take less effort to wear. 1% extra energy per 3.5 oz shoe! Your lightweight running shoe should work with the natural feel of your foot like a barefoot sneaker. Think of your lightweight running shoes as extensions of your feet—they shouldn't weigh you down. Weight: Size 10 10.2 oz.

What is the drop on a WalkHero shoe?
10 mm height difference between the front and back of the sole.

How to choose the right size of running shoes?
To ensure optimum comfort with your WalkHero shoes, choose a size bigger than your usual size. There should be 0.4" between your toe and the end of your shoe as your feet will swell during exercise.

How do I care for my WalkHero shoes?
We recommend that you avoid machine washing your shoes as this causes damage to the technological and material properties of the shoe; They may come unstuck or shrink, and the upper fabric may tear. When shoes are very dirty (muddy), we recommend washing them with soapy water and a synthetic brush. Don't use bleach! Rinse with fresh water. Avoid putting shoes near a heat source to dry them.

Origin
Designed with American ingenuity, manufactured with our Asian Partners.

Product testing
This shoe has been tested for several months on roads by a panel of runners. The shoe has also undergone a series of mechanical laboratory tests.

Storage instructions
You are advised to store your shoes away from direct sunlight (UV light).

How it Works

Plantar Fasciitis: When the band of tissue along the underside of your foot, called the plantar fascia, is overstretched and aggravates the attachment at the heel bone.

WalkHero® orthopedic shoes provide dual-action relief by treating the source of your pain.

The anatomical supportive arch of the insole prevents the plantar fascia from stretching and reduces the opportunity for continued injury.

While the contoured-sized heel cup properly positions the heel to absorb shock and reduces pressure to treat pain at the source.

The insoles cushion and protect your foot from the aggravating shock of each step, and support your arch to prevent the plantar fascia from stretching further so it can heal.

Technology

▪️ Made with proprietary ergonomic technology, WALKHERO absorbs 41% more impact than traditional foam footwear materials for the perfect blend of cushion and stability.

▪️ When paired with WALKHERO SOLE™, it reduces energy exertion in the ankles by up to 51% compared to competitors. So walking is easier. And actually feel better.

▪️ Our comfort system all starts with the expertly engineered, and due to years of research and iterations, is able to improve the alignment of the kinetic chain, beginning with the ankle.

Shipping and Returns

Free shipping on orders over $50, and our 180 days, no questions asked return policy. Lightly worn shoes get donated to Soles4Souls. Visit our Returns Portal.

Care Guide

For the greatest comfort, we recommend wearing your new WalkHero shoes for just a few hours for the first few days to allow your feet to adjust to the new level of orthotic comfort and support.

To preserve the appearance of your WalkHero shoes, we recommend that you clean the upper. Brush to remove dirt. Use a small amount of mild soap and water on the washcloth. Air dry. Do not machine wash.

    Great for wide feet and for coping with plantar fasciitis.

    Has a mild, internal rise/arch. Just enough for my nearly flat feet. I got these to cope with plantar fasciitis in one foot. The internal insole cushioning is not memory foam; it is soft, but has a snap-back property that works excellently. Unlike memory foam that compresses, with this system you never lose support. These shoes are giving me just enough relief for my plantar fasciitis to heal.

    Great for Plantar Fasciitis

    After a 25-year career in the military, my feet were wrecked -- not complaining, just goes with the sacrifice of serving our Great Nation. Odd is it may seem, the most comfortable footwear I experienced were really good combat boots. My podiatrist recommended these, and I have worn them ever since. Frankly, many of my colleagues have bought these for wearing in the office and for casual footwear. I love these; they are a permanent item in my "Shopping Cart" list, and until I find better they will remain there. Only downside, and this is only because of the lightweight nature of the material, the soles do wear out faster than other shoes -- but not like super fast. Give them a try if you have foot issues. Oh, and my custom orthotics fit in them too, which is great.

    Deformed feet vs WalkHero shoes

    I have deformed feet and have had trouble purchasing comfortable shoes all my life. (age 76) That is until I purchased these WalkHero. They are great and have a wide size option. Most other brands hurt my feet and didnt last long during the break in period. These shoes were comfortable as soon as I put them on back. Now its time to purchase another pair.

    Great Shoe

    I was having problems with my feet hurting after walking for long distances. I bought these shoes to see if they make a difference and OMG! The shoes are very light and super comfortable I got the 13 wide since I'm a big guy and they fit perfectly. The sole of the shoes is very thick and it offers great support it feels like you're walking on pillows. They instantly became my favorite pair of shoes, now I wear them every day all day and I love them.

    SAVING GRACE!

    These saved my husband's feet! He works in grocery store part time as he is now retired. His feet were hurting bad. He has flat feet and we have tried everything under the sun to alleviate the pain.

    These WalkHero are fabulous! No more pain. Worth every penny.
