Casual sneakers and casual walking are a dynamic duo that can improve your quality of life. We have all heard that walking is good for you, but many of us don’t do it often enough. Here are some benefits that might persuade you to slip on your casual sneakers and head out for a casual walk.

Key Takeaways

  • Walking in comfortable sneakers is an easy and accessible way to improve your mental and physical health. Regular walking can reduce stress, depression, and improve sleep quality by clearing your head and allowing you to reflect on your day. Walking for 30-60 minutes a day can also improve heart health and aid in weight loss.
  • Walking is a free and environmentally friendly alternative to driving, making it a convenient way to run errands or get some exercise without having to leave your neighborhood. So, slip on your casual sneakers and go for a stroll to improve your overall quality of life.
  • Choosing the right walking shoes is important to avoid painful foot problems like bunions and plantar fasciitis. KURU casual sneakers are designed with KURUSOLE technology to provide ideal arch support and protect your feet from heel to toe, allowing you to walk longer and farther without discomfort.

Mental Health

Walking can be an instant mood booster. If you’re feeling stressed or depressed, you can slip on your casual sneakers and head out for a casual walk. Doctors suggest walking three to five times a week for 30 minutes to reduce depression and stress.

Better Rest

Casual walks can help clear your head at the end of a stressful day. They can give you time to think about your day and what you could have done differently and give you time to plan out tomorrow. This way, you can jump into bed and go to sleep instead of being bombarded with thoughts that keep your mind racing and you awake…be sure to take off your casual sneakers before jumping into bed.

It’s Good for the Heart

A walk for 30-60 minutes can increase your heart rate. An increased heart rate can reduce your blood pressure and improve blood circulation throughout your body. So, slip on those casual sneakers and go for a stroll.

It’s Free

Walking is amongst the easiest types of exercise. All you need to do is put on your casual sneakers and go. There is no requirement to drive anywhere unless you want a change of scenery. With gas prices as high as they are, try walking to the grocery store or anywhere else where you might have errands.


A steady walking pace for 30-60 minutes a day while wearing the most comfortable sneakers is a great way to trim your waist and tone your legs. It’s easier on the body than other forms of exercising, too. It isn’t hard on the knees, or joints like jogging can be.

Wear the Right Shoes to Get the Most out of Your Walk

Wear the right walking shoes to avoid painful foot problems like bunions and plantar fasciitis that can turn a casual walk into a painful trek. KURU casual sneakers are made with KURUSOLE technology to protect your foot from heel to toe. With an orthotic built into every KURU shoe, you will have ideal arch support and a deep heel cradle that cups and protects your whole foot by absorbing shock and helping keep your natural heel fat pad below your heel. With KURU shoes, you can walk longer, go farther, and feel fit and energized to be happy.
