Deemed by our footwear testing experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute as some of the most comfortable shoes and the best walking shoes you can buy, these sandals do a little bit of everything.
Designed by Vionic, a brand that specializes in orthotic shoes, the Amber design specifically has a soft, cushioned footbed that's wrapped in micro-fiber to provide extra comfort as well as excellent arch support and stability. We love that the brand's sandals are stylish and functional without sacrificing style for comfort. The sandals aren't available in half sizes, which can be tricky if you tend to run in between, but reviewers praise the velcro-strap to easily put them on or take them on, the cute design and their lightweight feel.
It can be tricky finding a flip-flop that doesn't leave your feet hurting, but these Crocs are made with a cushy foam material that provides lightweight cushioning and comfort, according to the brand. The flexible rubber shoes are a Walmart best-seller and are made with thin straps to look sleek and less clunky than a traditional Crocs shoe. Multiple reviewers mentioned that sizing can run a bit small, but that they do stretch out with time. One reviewer called them, "the most comfortable flip-flops that I have ever owned!"
When it comes to everyday sneakers, we love the trendy, sleek look of Air Forces that are the perfect versatile pick to go with almost any outfit. According to the brand, the beloved white sneaker has a foam midsole and perforations around the toe area to provide airflow and breathability. There's also an extra-padded collar around the ankle area that might prevent chafing or blisters. Reviewers praise the leather shoes for their comfort, durability and true-to-fit size but do say they can seem heavy to those who usually go for something lightweight.
"These are the most comfortable shoes that I have purchased," said one reviewer of these classic slip-ons. The canvas slip-on is designed with a special diagonal seam that creates the "perfect fit" but also allows for roominess around the toes, according to the brand, although some say the shoes run a bit small or snug. And as always, for ever purchase, TOMS donates a new pair of shoes to a child in need.
These cute boots are a must when it comes to traversing wet surfaces. The brand says the sturdy rubber outsole provides traction on slick surfaces and has a water-resistant rubber "duck shell" around the toe, although they're not fully waterproof, meaning that they won't necessarily keep your feet dry in a torrential downpour. They're lined with microfleece to provide warmth and comfort, and the side zipper allows for easy on and off instead of wrangling the laces with each wear. "Super comfortable, very warm and fit like a glove once they are on," one reviewer wrote.
Landing a spot on our list of the best cowboy boots you can buy, online reviewers say these shoes are "gorgeous, perfect price and great fit." Although reviewers also note that these boots aren't great if you have wide calves, they do say the boot provides the perfect amount of comfort thanks to its cushioned insole, works great on wide and narrow feet and fits feet true-to-size while leaving a little bit of extra room to wear thick socks in necessary.
Designed with non-slip treaded soles, these slippers have the versatility to work as an indoor or outdoor slip-on shoe. According to the brand, this Walmart best-seller has a fleece footbed and memory foam midsole for ultimate coziness. Reviewers praise their soft comfort, with one reviewer saying, "These are very thick, heavy-duty slippers, but are very well made and have a nice rubberized sole you can walk outside with." At under $15, they're available in four different colors and are machine washable.
"So soft and comfortable," said one reviewer about these $12 slippers. The brand claims that these slippers feature a specialty orthotic footbed and deep heel cup for support, comfort and balance to help "reduce unnecessary stress on your knees and ankles." The slippers have rubber outsoles and textured treads for traction, but should not be worn outside. That said, reviewers love the fun pattern and color options the slippers are available in and how fluffy and soft they feel.
When it comes to sneakers, Hokas are our pros' top pick for comfortable shoes that help ease the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. The brand's signature footbed and structured frame can help support the foot, and this shoe is available in both wide and narrow sizes for all foot shapes. The soft, breathable knit fabric helps keep feet comfy, and the thick rubber outer sole has a rocker design that can help move you from heel to toe more easily. They are definitely a pricier pick, but the comfort and strong support they offer is unmatched.
These leather booties are some of the most comfortable dress shoes you can buy. Available in wide and narrow sizes, the booties are made with what the brand calls an OrthoLite footbed to provide comfort and shock absorption, ideal for longer days on your feet, and a two-inch block heel that offers height and stability. Our experts and reviewers both appreciate how breathable and lightweight the shoe is, although some reviewers think the booties could be better quality.
