Great news for those of you who prefer walking to running: Walking moderately intensely gives you comparable health benefits as running vigorously says a six-year study when it comes to reducing your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

(And while I know there are surely better walking shoes out there, ones designed for walking specifically, than these Nike Dunks, these are the sneaks I’m coveting and what I’d wear to walk to meetings and events. Cute, right?)
