    I doubt you can find a quality saddle at walmart. I would try something along the lines of a WTB Pure V. Works nicely for me.

    Big fluffies will make your butt hurt worse unless you're just riding a short distance.

    They adapt far to well to the contours of your backside and therefore are far better at constricting the flow of blood and putting pressure on all of the nerve endings.

    Better to find something that is firmer, but supports your sit-bones better.

    Saddles like the Brooks are so hard they make a knocking sound when you rap your knuckles on them, but are quite comfortable.
