Crocs Classic clogs
The classic Crocs clog has been a bestseller for so long it’s become an icon – what was once a controversial style is now all the rage. So indulge in all-day comfort you can only dream of and do it without irony!
“They’re wide and extremely light,” says foot surgeon Diane Koshimune of these popular clogs. People like to say that their favorite shoes “walk on air,” but thousands of reviewers can attest that in the case of Crocs, that’s the absolute truth.”
“I use these during my 12-hour shifts as a nurse in a fast-paced hospital.” said a convert. “So far the shoe has been the most comfortable and durable. I’m even pregnant and I had back pain because other shoes didn’t support but not with these!”
Skechers Go Joy women’s hiking shoe
The stylish Go Joy sneaker is a friend for anyone suffering from joint and foot pain. The slip-on style – with a rear pull tab on the back – is a bonus for those with dexterity issues.
“Great hiking shoes need to be supportive, lightweight and good for your specific foot type,” explains podiatrist Dr. Dana Canuso to Yahoo Life who picked this couple as one of them her favorite running shoes. “My most recommended hiking shoe is one with moderate stability, a supportive arch, and lots of cushioning.”
“Finally… I’ve found the perfect nursing shoe” wrote one of more than 53,000 five-star reviewers. “10/10 recommended for anyone who is constantly on their feet and just can’t get on board with the looks of nurse’s clogs.”
Adidas Puremotion Running Shoe
These Adidas sneakers regularly top Amazon bestseller lists, and for good reason: they’re not only sleek and stylish – they come in four colors – but they’re also super comfy on your heels.
dr Polina Zaydenberg, a board-certified Dr. Polina Zaydenberg: “The heel lift is great – it helps take pressure off the back and butt part of the heel. The texture of the material doesn’t help to create pressure in that part of the foot either.”
“The only sneakers you’ll ever need,” one fan dubbed the Adidas Puremotion cleats. “I don’t know how I would have managed to work almost 4 months in New York City for 10-12 (sometimes more than 14) hours if it weren’t for these amazing sneakers. I don’t know what other sneakers after that I could always trust my feet.”
Savings on these Adidas sneakers vary, but they’re over 55% off in white.
Doussprint slip-on hiking shoes
These shoes are a must-have for people who are on their feet all day, largely thanks to something called an air cushion.
“Stability or ‘support’ is probably the most important attribute of a sneaker or any other shoe someone wears for staying on their feet for more than a few minutes at a time,” explains Richard H. Graves, DPM, of Sol foot and ankle centers in Longwood, California in support of these shoes. “Stabilizing the foot means the joints of the foot are more aligned and the muscles, tendons and ligaments don’t have to work as hard. A good shoe does a lot of that work.”
“As a nurse, I have trouble finding comfortable work shoes,” one of more than 23,000 five-star reviewers wrote. “I have knee prostheses and I have found these to be the best shoes I have had in a very, very long time. Super comfortable with just the right amount of support.”
New Balance DynaSoft Nergize v3 running shoes
Looking for a reliably comfortable shoe that comes in a range of great colors? You can’t go wrong with the New Balance DynaSoft Nergize shoes.
These kicks have received many awards. Even professional “dog” whisperers rave about New Balance sneakers: Board-Certified Podiatrist Ernest L. Isaacson recommends New Balance for their comfort and support, while Dr. Nelya Lobkova, an ABPM (American Board of Podiatric Medicine) Certified Surgical Podiatrist, agrees the brand is “great for prevention and general foot pain.”
One buyer said the New Balance DynaSoft Nergize shoes are “superbly comfortable and stylish. Exceeded my expectations by far.”
Yhoon hiking shoes for women
Despite the chunky, supportive sole, these hiking shoes are incredibly light – you’ll feel like you’re walking through clouds!
according to dr Zaydenberg, the sole offers excellent shock absorption. “The platform is great for heel pain and metatarsalgia [pain in the ball of the foot]’ she tells Yahoo Life.
One of more than 10,000 Five Star fans wrote: “I work in veterinary medicine and I’m on my feet 10+ hours a day and I wanted comfortable shoes. These are super comfortable and super breathable and lightweight. Plus you can’t beat the price. I highly recommend them.”
Brooks Ghost 14 Running Shoe
These kicks are great for running and walking as they have properties that both cushion and propel you.
dr Zaydenberg is a big fan of these popular kicks from the respected Brooks brand. “They’re adaptable and stretchy,” she told Yahoo Life. “The platform is great for people with arthritic deformities in the midfoot.”
“Love the Brooks Ghost 14s!” wrote one five-star reviewer. “They were immediately comfortable and didn’t need to be broken in. They have great arch support but still offer good cushioning and overall support making them perfect to wear all day long. They have ample room in the toe box and I have no issues with heel slippage.”
New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi v3
Aching Feet? Try a pair of these New Balance sneakers, featuring a breathable mesh upper, a cushioned sole and a responsive insert for cushioning.
dr Lobkova explained that the brand is “great for prevention and general foot pain‘, and thousands of buyers swear by this special pair.
“Attention girls with bunions, these are the shoes!! OP on only one foot and most shoes still get very calloused. I have 2 pairs of these now, the blue/black one and the light gray one. After a few weeks on mine After a 2 mile walk every day, my callus is better with no extra pain!” gushed one person. “I tried three competing brands of athletic shoes. At the moment these are number 1.”
Asics Gel Venture 8 running shoes
The Asics Gel-Venture 8 running shoe offers plenty of traction – perfect for slippery restaurant or hospital floors – and is available in both regular and wide widths.
dr Zaydenberg is a fan of the Venture 8’s rocker sole, which helps relieve pressure from different parts of the foot. It also helps with propulsion. In addition, the heel is ideal for people with plantar fasciitis.
a fan wrote, “These are lightweight sneakers with good arch support. I wore them probably 20 years ago when I wanted to trail runner and have been wearing them for all my aerobic activities ever since. This particular pair is much lighter than previous pairs.”
Sporty sneakers with Vionic mesh lacing
Like all of the brand’s shoes, these cool Vionics were developed by an Australian podiatrist and are certified by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), the professional medical organization that represents the country’s podiatrists.
Getting the APMA Seal of Acceptance is a pretty big deal, says Melissa Lockwood, DPM, a podiatrist at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates in Bloomington, Illinois, tells Yahoo Life. “They do rigorous testing before they put the seal of approval on them,” she says. “This seal of approval lets a customer know it’s been approved by podiatrists – you’re getting a quality product.”
One reviewer wrote: “You have amazing support, you can’t beat it. I have a narrow/medium foot. They fit me well and they don’t touch or hurt my ankle. I carried the box for hours and… boy did I feel comfortable. I felt safe in it, nothing slippery.”
Lamincoa Air running shoes for women
“These are good for people with plantar fasciitis,” explains NYC-based podiatrist Dr. Zaydenberg. “I like to advise my patients to get gel heel cups, but the bladder on the heel is even better because it’s less dense, which provides better shock absorption.”
