Do you still wear sneakers/runners to walk in summer, or do you tend to wear more open shoes?

I walk every morning and always wear runner and socks.

Even when it is very hot i often wear runners in summer as I find they are good for my feet.

Perhaps when it hits 35 I will wear open shoes but not for my daily walk -this is always done in runners as I think it is better for my back than loose open shoes.

No, I only wear them to run in. In winter I wear boots whenever I'm walking. In summer I wear sandals.
I always live in my very supportive and comfortable Orthaheels Thongs which I have been wearing since a bad fall almost 2 years ago and spoke with my specialist about these.The Orthaheels,made by Scholl,now long respected for anything to do with feet and footwear, had these designed with major input by Podiatrists. A year after I began getting the benefit of the wonderful design elements incorporated into all their footwear,I noticed that ads for them began appearing on TV. I even have Orthaheel Slippers for round the house!!!
I bought 2 pairs of these on a special online for $29 each put down from !29! Have one already and very comfy but would not go on a 30 minutes walk with them -other pair has a back so may be better.

I got mine from Athlete's Foot for $35 down from $75,so I was very happy with that!! But $29 is BRILLIANT! This is what I paid for my 'slipper' style ones which are divine!!! But being semi furry/velvety and the brightest cerise imaginable, they are a little outrageous for going grocery shopping!!! I did do this once or twice though....Ha ha ha ha!!!

Sometimes I will put them on when I go for a walk or to the park.

I saw some AMAZING breathable ones that are soooo light today! I'm going to get myself a pair for xmas. Your questions always remind me of things, Finy! And I've spent all evening thinking to myself "what was it I was going to get?" and this question jogged my memory .... pun intended
I ALWAYS wear runners! Even in this really crazy heat. The only time I wear my open shoes is if I need to put some shoes on QUICK or if I'm dressed up to go out.
Runners are great for walking,running. But... I do become upset sometimes as I see people in their cushioned runners (which is good) but their poor dogs paws are burning on the hot bitumen paving - once the temperature gets over about 23 or so, the footpaths become extremely hot.. Of course the dogs can't complain, and are so faithful that they suffer in silence.

I just wear a pair of canvas shoes in summer, unless going out somewhere special.
They are easy to wear, cheap to replace and I can wear 2-3 different ones per day.
Happy :)
No, I don't wear sneakers in the summer. Sandals for me.
I always wear my runners and socks for my junk mail rounds to prevent blisters, but in the warmer weather I tend to do either dawn or dusk walking to avoid the heat of the day.
I wear runners and socks most of the time all year round because they are the comfortable footwear for my feet.
No. Too hot. I'm heat sensitive and this is a real problem. I wear Crocs through all weather other than cold in Winter. I know trainers are the most secure and I'm more limited in the terrain now. Shame. (I've some arthritis in foot.)
I wear sneakers all year round as I walk 6-10 kms every day (with time off for good behaviour on Sundays)! When not walking seriously I usually wear ballet flats as I find them really comfortable and they go with everything. I have a huge range of colours to match all my outfits.
If I know I will be doing a lot of walking, yes I do. I went into Melbourne to see the Myer Christmas windows, plus we did some Christmas shopping and then walked all the way up to Parliament station to go home. This is several blocks UPHILL. My legs were tired but my feet were quite comfortable. If I am not walking as much, of course I prefer to wear sandals in summer. You have to wear the correct shoe, according to what you intend to do that day. Lots of walking means sneakers regardless of whether it is summer or winter.
I only wear my sneakers/runners/joggers, when I go for my walk. When I go out, I wear my Sketchers, as they don't have laces, & are very comfortable. I wear them all the time when I leave the house in 1 of my cotton patterned dresses, as long as they are 1 of the colours that I have in my dress!

I always wear runners as I have inserts that don't fit sandals or other shoes. Besides I walk on the bezch near me and I sure don't want to find something left in the sand through bare feet.
