Walking shoe reviews
Our walking experts were impressed by the comfort of these shoes, which are available in both men and women’s sizes, but how durable were they in our rigorous lab tests? And while the rubber soul may be flexible, how well do they grip in the wet?
Which? members can find out in our detailed review of the Berghaus Prognosis Technical Shoes.

How we test walking shoes
A Best Buy walking shoe gives you good cushioning on all terrains and and in all weathers. A poor walking shoe won’t absorb the impact of your feet pounding the ground, making for an uncomfortable day’s walking.
- We’ve tested walking shoes with linings that don’t allow sweat to escape from the shoe, increasing the likelihood of blisters. Our Best Buy walking shoes keep your feet fresh and dry, even on long walks.
- You need to be able to trust your shoes to grip in both wet and dry conditions. We test the heel and forefoot for resistance on wet and dry sandstone – both up and downhill.
- All of the walking shoes we test are immersed in a tank of water for seven and a half hours to see how they cope with a thorough soaking.
