We've talked about finding the best shoes for running, but if you're thinking about taking up a specific activity, our friends at Greatist will help you find it. This infographic can help you choose the right type and style of shoe for whatever outdoor activity you're planning to pick up.
Walking can make a huge difference, even if it's your only exercise, but great walking shoes aren't necessarily great running shoes, and great running shoes are definitely not great hiking boots.
Of course, it's worth noting that no graphic can really guide you to the shoe you should actually wear. You'll get some useful pointers here, but you should take those suggestions to a real shoe store, try on several pairs and make a decision based on what's comfortable and well regarded for durability and reliability.
