Best extremely durable shoes for Men with a bad back

There is nothing worse than having a shoe that falls apart after a single wear. Finding a top, durable shoe can mean the difference between getting 50 miles out of a pair... or 500. And that extra durability can save you serious money. But having a durable shoe not only means saving money: it means less injuries, a better run, and a healthier life.

A bad back can ruin everything from running or basic household tasks. Luckily there are shoes, both for running and walking, that are meant for folks with bad backs. The most important thing is figuring out whether you need a stability shoe, a neutral shoe, or a motion controlled shoe. Second, it's important to find a shoe that has worked for people with bad backs. These athletic shoes are often cushioned, have great arch support, and allow for flexibility for your individual stride.
