  1. Robyn Smith

    Best walking shoe EVER! They feel like they were custom-made for my feet. So light and ergonomically suited for comfort and speed. Love the look! Getting a lot of compliments and “where did you get them” questions. On day two and passing that link around. Thank you, Carmen!!

  2. David Howitz

    So much trouble finding the right racewalking shoes. Typically not enough flex and bind my toes so they are bleeding after a long walk. These are PERFECT!!! Made for Racewalking!!! Light enough, flexible enough, no binding in the toes. Thank You Carmen!!!

  3. Stephanie C

    I’ve been looking for race walking shoes for a long time and am excited to finally find a pair that works! I’ve tried so many pairs of shoes and they have been lacking in one way or another. The Reshod shoes are comfortable and help to encourage good race walking form so that I am working with my shoes instead of against them. These shoes have so much potential, I am very pleased with my purchase!

  4. Rita W (verified owner)

    I have a wide-ish square forefoot and a narrow-ish heel. The roomy front of the shoe is FANTASTIC – comfortable, nothing rubs. The laces can be snugged up enough to keep my heel in place without the collar rubbing my ankle at all. It only took me a few blocks to adjust to the mechanics of the shoe. Now I’m going to want to wear them every time!

  5. I. Erin Dees

    These shoes are a vital ingredient to my training program! They guide my feet to achieve a smooth transition from heel to toe, without needing to land at an extreme toes-up angle. Moreover, these habits carry over to when I’m wearing other shoes, nudging me toward a gentler landing and faster turnover. Thank you, Carmen!

    I purchased these shoes on a whim. The story sounded good, they looked fun, and I have a closet full of shoes. The difference is that the closet full of shoes are ones I’ve only worn once or twice and then putting them in the closet, because they weren’t comfortable. I try and walk 3-4 times a week, at least 3-5 miles. The Reshods have been really comfortable from the start. There’s room for my toes to actually wiggle! Yet the shoe is supportive without jamming my arch with a high arch support. My feet love them and I do too.

  7. Diana Thurman

    I found that a 1/2 size smaller did the trick. I usually wear a women’s 8.5 but the 8.0’s fit my feet perfectly. My feet are on the narrow side so taking that into account, I was hoping a smaller size would do it. I love them and will use them for training and try them out on judged races. I’m now walking on air but please don’t tell the judges. Great job Carmen!!!

    I met coach Carmen a little over 2 years ago when a hip replacement motivated me to transition from running to race walking. As a life long customer of the local shoe and apparel company, I discovered that running shoes didn’t quite translate well to the new mechanics I was learning for race walking. Many of my training partners had been using the Reshod resoled shoes and were very happy with the technology behind the sole. Working with Carmen I really saw the passion she has for the sport and developing her product. I have been using my new Reshod shoes for about a month now and am very happy with how they feel and, more importantly, how they contribute to the further development of my race walking technique. It’s exciting to be involved with a new product!!!

    Just got mine and love them. Its always hard to find something you can spend a whole day in and not even notice they are brand new. Toe box is very comfortable and my feet are so happy. Great job Carmen . Great shoe.

    Found Reshod accidentally while scanning through Portland (my old haunt), ordered immediately. Fit perfectly, true to size (8.5 M), and are extremely comfortable. super light, almost as if they blend into my foot. I noticed the difference in my stride, as compared to running shoes, about four steps into my first use, as I felt propelled forward and over my feet rather than behind them. I can’t believe that running shoes require so much more energy during walking. I’ve also used them for weight lifting applications as the sole encourages proper weight management towards the heel when standing still. Now I have shoes that are better at walking than I am, thus the next challenge….

      Thanks, Laurence! The next time you are in the Portland area, please join us for one of our group walks or track practice. Coach Carmen would love to meet you.

    I’ve had my Pushover Walking shoes for a couple months now. I really wanted to test drive them before giving my review. Here’s my take:
    Weight: super light – I thought the box was empty when I received them!
    Fit: great – I have bunions so there are many shoes with fancy overlays that I simply cannot wear because they put too much pressure on my feet. No problem here – Carmen designed them especially to avoid pressure points of problematic feet.
    Wear – very good. I tend to wear heels down fast from my direct heel plant. Also, wear them out where I roll off my toes. After over 100 miles these shoes look virtually new on the bottom.
    Performance – performance enhancing! Very smooth transition from heel to toe and I do feel the push over. In fact, when I got my first pair, I wore them around the house mostly to get used to them. Then I decided I would give them at test drive in a 10K race. When Carmen says “Reshod Walking Shoes may encourage the activation of dormant or weak muscles,” she isn’t kidding! I felt muscles I hadn’t felt before and I believe it is because the shoes encourage me to walk more correctly. After working out in them I find I am stronger in the glutes and core and my feet are less fatigued at the end of a hard session.
    Overall: very pleased. I’ve already purchased a second pair so I can trade out and increase overall longevity.

    During the last few months I’ve alternated between wearing Reshod shoes and another pair of shoes for my race walk training. The Reshod shoes, hands down, are the ones made for walking. These shoes roll the foot from heel to toe effortlessly, making for a more efficient stride. My teenage daughter, who also race walks, has been wearing the Reshod shoes as well. I’ve noticed these shoes have corrected a few of her form issues by setting her body into proper alignment. I also love the soles on the Reshod shoes. They grip well on loose gravel, on slick surfaces, and do great on rainy days. Now, even when I’m just out leisure walking my dogs to the park, I lace on my Reshod shoes, because they’re the most comfortable pair of shoes I own.

    I just got my New Reshod shoes in red. I walked 5 miles in them and they are really comfortable. I hope to get many more miles on them. I am
    also looking forward to getting a pair of these shoes in blue. Come on Summer.

  14. Mark V.

    I feel fortunate to have found the Reshod shoe. For nearly 11 months I had been experiencing a constant discomfort above my left Achilles’ tendon and intermittent pain in my left knee. After wearing the Reshod shoe for 4 weeks, the pain/discomfort disappeared. What a relief! Thank you Reshod.

  15. Dennis Robeson

    Hi Carmen

    Thank you for my new shoes. As you know my only other real alternative is to buy running shoes. Runners have a completely different set of issues with which to contend than race walkers. Runners leap through the air and typically land on their heel so their shoes have evolved to reflect that. The large cushy heel designed to cushion a runner’s heel landing are unnecessary for a race walker who stays constantly in contact with the ground and makes a soft heel landing. As a matter-of-fact, those heels actually get in the way and shorten the stride of a race walker. The heels on my new Reshods are relatively small and don’t get in the way. After my heel landing I am constantly trying to push myself forward throughout my stride. My new Reshods are built up in the forefoot with your “pushover” technology to give me something to push with. Thanks again.

    I love my Reshods! I’ve been Racewalking for 7+ years and I’ve tried many brands of shoes. Reshods are by far the the best shoes I’ve ever owned. I have problems with bunions and this is the first shoe that I can walk in and have no pain before or after i walk. I can’t believe how light weight this shoe is; between that and Coach Carmen’s “pushover” technology whether walking a race or walking for pleasure it is enjoyable! Thank you, Reshod!!!

  17. Michael Mannozzi (verified owner)

    Thrilled to try out my first pair of Reshod Pushovers! I was surprised at how supportive they felt, and they really seemed to reinforce the forward transition rolling from heel to toe. The soles are made of Vibram rubber which have held up well. Surprisingly no blisters and Carmen has been on hand to answer all of my questions. Rare service! This is a shoe for walkers by walkers. Will definitely be purchasing another pair!

    Hi Carmen, have used my new Reshod walking shoes twice since getting them late Saturday evening. My feet feel great doing 4-5 miles in them – even with the big ‘ol bunion on the right foot. The size 9’s worked great! I wear my shoes and use them with my Nordic walking poles. While I’m not really ever going to be racing, I feel like I can easily achieve the correct stride and motion I want with these shoes. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me about them on the phone before ordering! That was very helpful! And I loved the quick shipping! I have found my favorite new trusty pair of fitness walking shoes!

  19. Ron Day

    I like the shoes quite a bit. The zero drop is perfect for keeping you upright and not leaning backward or forward, and the shoes are very well built. Good landing, smooth transition with good balance, and a good platform for push off. Not soft or hard, but just right. The best race walking shoes I’ve had. I highly recommend them. Much better than running shoes for me. Thank you, Carmen, for all your work on these. You did a great job!

  20. Ron Day

    Just an update after fifty or maybe a hundred miles of wear: they are now at the top of my 30 year running/walking pantheon of most beloved shoes. They are very well designed and built. I have very little wear on them, I’m going faster, and my race walking form is better. You did an outstanding job, Carmen! Thank you!

    • admin (verified owner)

      Thanks so much for your follow up comments, Ron! I’m testing the next style and am walking faster than I have in many years. So stay tuned for the race shoes. If you like the training shoes, you’ll LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the next ones.

    Excellent shoes! I just thought I had some hi-end walking shoes before. Instead of feeling like I am “plodding along”, these shoes put real spring in my step, allowing my foot to hit the pavement more naturally. And the good news, you can resole them. It’s probably no coincidence I posted my fastest time on my first walk in my new shoes!
    Happy Trails.

    It feels like the shoes are doing all the work and I’m just along for the ride. I think they’re going to be great for my Disney World vacation. And for my long distance workouts.

  23. Al M (verified owner)

    These shoes rock! They are light and comfortable. I don’t know how I was making due with running shoes and using them to walk in. They look good and feel good. I read that for some the shoe runs big so I ordered my normal size and a half size below. For me, my normal size worked well and was able to return the other pair no questions asked. Great customer service and fast response. When these shoes wear out I will order another pair without thinking twice.

    As a long time racewalker, I was in a panic trying to find a shoe that would accommodate the thick orthotic insert I now need for my left foot. Reshod kept coming up as one of the best shoes around. I called Carmen and she figured out the shoe that would work, and it did. An awesomely comfortable shoe that is perfect for racewalking. Lots of room in the toe box for my wide feet, and the thick orthotic. Wish I had discovered these shoes years ago. They are the B-E-S-T…….and so is Carmen. Great company and a great product.

  25. M. Cecelia (verified owner)

    An update to my earlier review. Yes, it is true. The design of this shoe makes it seem like your feet are propelled by tiny jets in the shoes. I find foot turnover is so much quicker in the Reshod shoes. I put on my old shoes to verify I was not having a senior moment. Yup, heel to toe roll and push is just so much easier. What a great shoe.

      Thanks for letting us know! We are so glad you chose A New Slant on Walking!!

    Received my first pair of Reshod walking shoes a week ago. I walked 2 miles in them the first day and 3 miles the second day. I’ve been a competitive race walker for 9 1/2 years. At first I thought the shoes were a little large so I laced them tighter which seemed to help. I normally wear a size 9.5 so that’s what I ordered. Shoes seem a little too long at the end of big toe.
    Maybe I should have ordered a size 9. The Reshods are very comfortable and light weight but not as flexible as the racing flat Mizuno running shoes I’ve been training and racing in. It may take me a while to get used to the higher profile Reshod compared to the low profile shoes I’ve been wearing. I realize the stiffness of the Reshod is because of the pushover design and technology. I wanted to rate the shoes five star and probably will after more mileage wearing them. Question: will the blue racing Reshod be lighter than the red? How much will they cost and when will they be available to the non elite walker? Thanks Carmen and keep up the great work!

      Thanks so much for your comments, Alan. The difference in length between the size M9 and M9.5 is only 2-3mm, so going down a half size next time is worth a try. If your big toe is scraping the stitching of the red toe section, though, you might go down to a M8.5. I’m very excited to launch the blue race shoe. We’ve worked hard to get all the details right. Our website just went through an upgrade, and we’re working to get all the details regarding pricing, weight of the shoes, and the specifics of the midsole technology uploaded. Watch for pre-sales to start next week.

    I absolutely LOVE my Reshods! In fact, I bought two pair so that I can rotate them and also to allow me to have a pair resoled after many months of wear. My local shoe fellow, High Street Shoe Repair, did that for only $65 and used the requisite material for the sole.
    Beyond the mechanics of the shoe that really allow me to roll through my stride, I have never had a black toenail which is something I couldn’t say about my running shoes.

  28. Rene Pizzo

    I use them for dog walking, going to the gym and using the various cardio machines, and inadvertantly as my work shoes one day when I forgot to put dress shoes in my gym bag.

    Great racewalking shoe

    Review 2A – Reds for a skeptic. I finally convinced my wife to try a pair of Reds (“My hammer toe, wide feet, and bunion make it impossible to mail-order shoes….”). She walked around on carpet for two days waiting for pain. No complants! Now they are the only shoes she wears during our walks and admits they are noticeably faster than her running shoes.

    Review 2B – Understand the Blues – The Blues are radically different from the Reds. Whereas the Reds propel you forward at modest paces compared to running shoes (that now feel like you are constantly walking uphill), the Blues are like a highly tuned turbo engine and really show their stuff when your foot plant technique is smooth and flat. It took me about two miles to understand them. The Blues are demanding that I up my game and get serious. The challenge is on….

      I love it! Thanks for your comments. Your feedback is exactly what I was aiming for. Thank you so much for giving Reshod Walking Shoes a try. I hear you on the blue shoes, though. I can keep up with them for about 20k, but not much longer. Go get ’em. I hope to see you a photo of you racing in the blues once we are allowed to compete again.

  31. Ann MCphee (verified owner)

    I tried to like them. But for my narrow foot they were too wide even with my thickest socks and the heel slips when walking. I had to return them.

    • admin

      Thank you for your comment. It’s very possible that you ordered a half size too large. My foot is an A width and I simply tighten the laces. Having said that, the shoes are unisex sized, based on a Men’s width. They fit most feet, but not very narrow or very wide. I hope to accommodate both of those issues on future offerings.

  32. Ann (verified owner)


    The blue ones (a 1/2 size smaller) arrived, fit nicely, much better size, lighter weight, able to snug up the heel with the second eyelet.
    Thank you,

    • admin

      Yeah! I love happy endings. I’m so glad the smaller size worked out. Enjoy!!!
