This season brings about my favorite time to be outside. A pair of capri pants, a tank top and a just-in-case long sleeve shirt, I can’t help but venture outside to relish this time of change and renewal. I’ve spent the last week exploring North Carolina’s mountain region. Up there, it’s undoubtedly fall. The air is crisp. The leaves are turning. And the streets are ripe for a power walk!

The key to a comfortable and effective walk starts with the feet! When searching for the right shoe, I look for three things: support, breathability, and weight (i.e. how heavy is that shoe before it’s even on the foot?!). Personally, I prefer a low profile tennis shoe for walking and cross training. I like a mesh or light fabric top for those sunny beach walks, and always – for every workout – I opt for a lightweight shoe!
