1. We walk or run wearing these shoes.
(What is the part of speech of 'wearing' here? Is "wearing" a complement? Or is #1 come from #2 or #3 below?)
2. We walk or run as we wear these shoes.
3. We walk or run while we wear these shoes.
(Are the three all the same?)
1. wearing is a gerund, used here as an adjective.
Essentially the 3 sentences convey the same message: a) we wear, do wear, are wearing these shoes and b) we walk, do walk and are walking or run, do run, are running.
