Default Advice on walking shoes

My only problem is I am getting sore feet.

I'm a big fan of goretex type boots and approach shoes - can be like walking
in slippers.
These are nice (trainer style)
As are these (boot style)
Also have a pair of these (trainer again)

I've found Merrel footwear very comfortable

Buy a half size bigger and get decent socks

These trainer/boot things have nice thick soles and are really comfortable
tarmac or stoney ground - I used to buy traditional footwear - don't - it's
this trendy looking stuff is great.

Merrell have a 'ventilator' range which I wear at work and for summer walks
.....ignore peeps who moan about goretex boots and want nice stiff leather
and hobnail soles.
