How do you walk around in a spacecraft?

Sohee Lee asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Is it difficult to walk in a spacecraft? How are the soles of thier shoes modified to enable them to walk more easily?

What do you think?

Why walk when you can just push gently off the wall and go to the destination without doing any more work on your part. Microgravity allows you do do a practical demonstration of Newtonian physics with everything.

Microgravity schmicogravity.

Gravity is pretty much the same as it is on Earth.
