Sandals, wedges, sling backs, ballet flats and flip flops for the most part are not designed to be supportive and walking all day in those types of shoes can cause tired legs, sore backs, arch cramps and general muscle fatigue.

"It's imperative that I exercise and stay healthy," she says.
When she's finished her last lap, she heads for the stairs.
