Cramps: Absolutely. Footwear is extremely important when training or long distance walking. A podiatrist may assist you in finding the proper type of foot wear. This can make a difference on not only how your feet feels but also your ankles, knees, hips, lumbar spine and even cervical-thoracic spine. Stretching of leg muscles and gradual increments of distance also helps prevent muscle strain and injury.
