Knee Pain When Walking – Is It All In The Shoes?

We all take our ability to walk for granted until we are set back by crippling pain. The average American walks 7000-13000 steps per day.1 Over your lifetime, that’s a lot of steps! Each one of these strides applies pressure to our lower limbs and it all starts at the foot.

Consequently, the type of shoe you wear can influence any nagging knee pain when walking.
