    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE these shoes. Since my pregnancy, my feet and sciatic nerve have not be the same. I am a teacher, so I am on my feet A LOT! Since purchasing these shoes, I have hardly had any issues with my feet, lower back, or sciatic nerve. The support in this shoe is excellent. If you have any kind of feet issue, I highly recommend these shoes. AND, they are really cute, too!" —Nicole S.

    Get them from Amazon for $64.95+ (available in sizes 6-11, 6W-11W and in 10 colors).

    2. Greats sneakers you don't have to worry about breaking in, because they're ready to go right out of the box and will not give you blisters.

    Greats, Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    I should know because the first time I wore these shoes, I walked 16,000 steps in them. Yep, you read that correctly, 16,000 steps and not a single blister and no foot pain at the end of the day. Soon after that day, these shoes became my new go-tos. They have a classic look to them and really do go with everything. I even took them on vacation with me back in January to Paris, and I wore them almost every day. They didn't look like tourist shoes at all, and I never had any pain while wearing them. The price point is a bit steep on them, but for the quality, I really do think they are worth it.

    Promising review: "This is my second pair of Greats and like the first pair, I get compliments them all the time, great quality, comfortable. I love that they take a few days to "break-in" the leather, and even the break-in days aren't painfully, the leather is just stiffer. Plus, they're fresh white kicks, so they go with everything!" —Claudia D.

    Get them from Greats for $179 (available in sizes 6-10 and in four styles).

    3. Soda perforated slip ons in an animal print to help show off your ~wild~ side. And by "~wild~ side," I mean your ability to pair these with everything you have in your closet.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Reviewers recommend ordering a half size down.

    Promising review: "These are cute and comfortable! I took the advice from other reviews and sized down. I am usually a 6.5 but got a 6, and they fit perfectly. I have wide feet, and these adjusted very well. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a simple but cute shoe." —ESGF

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 90 colors and styles)

    4. Saucony running shoes with an extra padded insole great for anyone who is prone to shin-splints, because that shouldn't be a thing that happens when you go for a run.

    Promising review: "The sneakers are super comfortable I am very susceptible to getting blisters on my feet even if I just walk around the block. I am happy to say that after weeks of using them, I have no blisters. The shoes are super comfortable, and I have no regrets. I am so happy with the sneakers that I bought a second pair to have as back up." —Dalisa Aznarez

    Get them from Amazon for $55.13 (available in sizes 5-12 both regular and wide and in seven colors).

    5. Keds x Kate Spade glitter sneaks you'll ~glitter-ly~ be obsessed with the moment you take them out of the box. They will feel like a fancy party on your feet every time you wear them.

    Get them from Keds for $84.95 (available in sizes 5-11 in medium and wide and five colors).

    Amazon

    If you have wide feet, reviewers recommend sizing up a half size.

    Promising review: "I like these shoes so much I bought two pairs. My feet are very narrow, and I have trouble finding shoes that fit without coming off my heels. These have the comfort band that makes them very comfortable." —Jane from MA

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 5-13 and in 33 styles).

    7. A perforated slip-on sneaker great to wear even on the hottest of days because the fabric allows air to get in and keep your feet cool.

    Nordstrom

    Reviewers do say that they run small, so order a half size up.

    Promising review: "These are very cute and comfortable shoes. The perforations keep my feet cool. They are great with jeans, shorts, or capris." — Lorris

    Get them from Nordstrom for $83.95 (available in whole sizes 6-12).

    8. Saucony Cohesion 10s you'll be ~running~ to put on in the morning when you wake up and want to head out for a quick workout before taking on whatever else your day brings.

    Promising review: "I've been a huge Saucony fan for many years now. My only problem is how expensive they've become. I was thrilled when I found these for the price. They are terrific. There's no breaking it period, very cushiony, yet supportive, I always size 1/2 up for running shoes, and they fit perfect. I'm very happy with my purchase." —Jamie Croshaw

    Get them from Amazon for $59.95+ (available in sizes 6-11, 7W-11W and in 12 colors combinations).

    9. Sorel Kinetic sneakers I can't ~lie-lac~ about — I'm going to be dreaming about them for a long time because the color and style is SO great.

    Sorel

    Promising review: "I needed a stylish and very comfortable pair of shoes, and these will be my go-to's for as long as they make them! I have gotten so many compliments on them. I got them in white and purple. I plan to get in a couple of other colors! I am really active but have rheumatoid arthritis. My feet and ankles have much better support with these. They aren't too heavy and keep me as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend for anyone!!" —Brooke1985

    Get them from Sorel for $77.98+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in nine colors).

    10. Superga sneakers Kate Middleton has been seen wearing on multiple occasions, so you could say they come with a royal stamp of approval.

    Promising review: "This is a great shoe that goes with everything. I bought them for the summer and was looking for a classic white sneaker I can wear with everything, and this was it! I am usually a size 7 and got a size 6.5 because of the reviews. It isn't too terrible, but if I were to buy another pair, I would NOT size down. Your feet expand over the course of the day. Don't size down." —Jenny

    Get them from Amazon for $43.33 (available in sizes 5-11 and in 18 colors).

    11. A Bangs high-top style made with a canvas material, so they're are environmentally-friendly and ready to support you on whatever adventure you take them on.

    Bangs

    Bangs is a woman-founded company that makes 100% vegan shoes. There is footbed and arch support in the shoes and a reinforced heel counter.

    Promising review: "These have quickly become my go-to shoe for almost any day. I love wearing them with shorts casually but also with dresses. They are more comfortable than my gym shoes. So for sure my go-to hiking shoe! Not to mention they are so cute!! Plus, they're very well made. I highly recommend." —Sarah Petrie

    Get them from Bangs for $65 (available in sizes 5-14.5).

    12. Reebok Princess sneakers that have minimal arch support, which is actually great if you have flat feet and don't want the pain that sometimes comes with shoes that *do* have more support.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "These have very little arch support, which is one reason that I love these shoes. I have rather flat feet, so built-in arch supports usually cause me pain. I have been wearing this model shoe for over 20 years (I am 71 now) and they are comfortable right out of the box. When they get dirty, I pop them in a pillow case, wash them on cool, and let them air dry (which takes about three days in the humid Florida climate), but they come out looking and feeling brand new. They are my favorite shoes and always will be!" —Jane R. Davis

    Get them from Amazon for $35.97+ (available in sizes 5-12, 5W-12W, and in 17 colors).

    13. Allbirds tree runners made out of eucalyptus tree fiber so they're eco-friendly and incredibly breathable so you can wear them on even the warmest of days.

    Promising review: "These are wonderful shoes. They have become my go-to shoe for daily activities but also great for activities with large amounts of standing." —Karen M.

    Get them from Allbirds for $95 (available in whole sizes 5-11 and in 13 colors).

    14. A wedge fashion sneak (designed so the wedge is somewhat hidden) for when you need a little ~lift~ but don't want to broadcast it to the world. It's okay, these shoes are here for you.

    Promising review: "I am really really really loving these sneakers. I love the colors. They fit perfectly, arrived super quickly, and actually exceeded my expectations. I'm a slippers girl and fell in love with these the minute I saw them; what I love most is that they're so cushiony soft and very very comfortable. I bought these because I'll be traveling soon and wanted something for the long walking and standing. IT'S PERFECT, EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED. I will definitely be shopping again in the future." —Soph300

    Get them from Amazon for $36.80 (available in sizes 5-10 and in nine colors).

    15. A sneaker with a ruched elastic back so you can slip these on in seconds and not worry about pesky laces and ties.

    Promising review: "I love these shoes. They are so comfortable. I love that you can slip them on and go. They are my favorite pair of shoes!" —SAMMIE20

    Get them from Torrid for $39.50 (available in sizes 6-13).

    16. Saucony Bullet shoes that have a lower profile and slim silhouette to echo a vintage style that'll fit your old-school vibe.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are great little everyday shoes. They're cute and comfy, perfect for walking around, light hikes, traveling, etc. They're extremely light and breathable, and they come with an extra set of laces. I like how they look, too. The low profile but interesting. They definitely fit small, so size up—I usually wear an 8, but I went to 8.5 as per recommendations." —Lucy Bert

    Get them from Amazon for $44 (available in sizes 5-12 and in 10 colors).

    17. Slide-ons designed with a drop-in heel, so you can essentially wear these two different ways, meaning you get two shoes for the price of one.

    Promising review: "I was a little tentative about the flexible heel, but I was so pleasantly surprised by these shoes. They were comfortable right out of the box, and I find I wear them both with back up and down. I wore them for a long walk the night I got them, and they were just great. I highly recommend these for casual and flexible style." —JennGtx

    Get them from Nordstrom for $85 (available in sizes 5-12 and in 13 colors and patterns).

    18. High tops that'll ~light up~ your life and make you want to have a dance party in your living room just so you can wear them more.

    Promising review: "Great! Just great. I bought these expecting very little based on a few of the reviews I read. I was pleasantly surprised to find these to fit perfectly, work without fail, and are endlessly fun! I wore them to a stadium concert and several people commented on how fun they were and how they wanted a pair. The button to work the lights is inside the shoe just under where the Velcro strap would sit on the outside. I do not latch the Velcro when I want access to the lights, which allows me to tie them comfortably, but still make them light up if I choose. The batteries have lasted for several (6+) hours before they needed charged. If you want something fun, bright and kind of silly, just get 'em." —Sareeta

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 4.5-13 and in seven colors).

    19. Dr. Scholl's fashion sneakers you'll be wearing for years because they're a basic you'll never go wrong with.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these shoes. I was looking for slip-on sneakers that would be comfortable and that I could wear every day but also dress up. These were the perfect match. They are very comfortable, I can wear with or without socks, my feet don't get too sweaty, and they were easy to break in. My feet are size 8.5 exactly, and I usually wear a 9 in shoes, but I ordered the 9 and they were actually too big so I got the 8.5, and they're perfect." —Allie Culwell

    Get them from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in sizes 5-11, 7W-11W and in 17 colors, patterns, and fabric styles).

    20. Sneakers that look like the real deal but instead of laces, they have elastic across the top so you can slip these on at a moment's notice.

    Promising review: "I love this shoe. I have had numerous comments about where did I get them and how cute they are. They are comfortable and very stylish. I like the worn-out look, so these are just what I like!! I've been wearing them with shorts, but I think they'll look great with jeans. They are a very casual shoe but still cute." —debbie L.

    Get them from Amazon for $26.01+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in 32 colors and patterns).

    21. A pair of breathable sports shoes you can wear all weekend long as you run every errand you put off during the week. That's what Saturday and Sunday are for, right?

    Promising review: "I have never been compelled to write a review, but these shoes are soooo beautiful!!! I got the pink and gold and they are comfy and pretty. I cannot keep count on the total strangers on the street stopping me and saying how much they love my shoes and asking me where I got them!!! This price is amazing, and I truly can say I got bang for my buck! True to size, I'm an 8 and ordered the 8 and they fit perfect." —Dora M.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in 14 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I really love these shoes! I took a chance because I have never ordered a pair of shoes online. But these are very comfortable so far and they look really cute on. The quality seems appropriate for the price, and I can see getting a lot of use out of these shoes. I also want to note that I work in downtown Austin so that requires a lot of walking to and from the parking garage and my work building. So far I have no complaints, and I do not have any blisters from these shoes." —Gabi Fauss

    Get them from Amazon for $55 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in eight colors and styles).

    24. Apl sneakers made with a 3D-stretch knit so they're lightweight but still supportive enough to take a workout class on.

    Apl

    Promising review: "I had been looking for a new pair of workout shoes for cross-training and had always heard the best things about APL. I finally broke down and bought these and could not be happier! They are unbelievably light, yet still have substantial support. The design makes it easy to slip them on and off, but I’m never worried about them coming off during exercise. I cannot not recommend these enough." —Alecsandra H.

    Get them from Apl for $225 (available in sizes 5-11).

    25. Puma Tazon cross-trainers with a TPU shank that adds more stability so you can wear these to workout when you're doing things other than just running.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these shoes! I thought at first they would bulky and hard on my feet. I work long hours and am on my feet all day! I realized within minutes of wearing these shoes that my feet didn't hurt, my back didn't ache, and my toes weren't numb anymore. I can't tell you how much a good pair of shoes are worth to your whole body! They have tremendous support, lightweight even though they don't look it, and very comfortable! I'm in love with these shoes and plan to buy more each payday. I recommend you do the same!" —Mama Niki's reviews

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in wide and four styles)

    26. Adidas sneakers you might as well buy two pairs of so you have a backup when the first pair inevitably gets too run-down and dirty from how much you'll trek around in them.

    Reviewers say they run big, so order a half size down.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these shoes!! They're a summer staple and goes with everything. They're a a must-have, if you don’t already own a pair." —AAFAM321

    Get them from Adidas for $85 (available in sizes 5-11 and in five colors).

    Promising review: "I really like how these shoes look! They are super cute and are comfortable! I normally wear a size 7.5 or 8, and they fit perfectly!

    Soludos

    Promising review: "I could not adore these sneakers more! They're crazy comfortable and look so well made. I was tired of the same plain tennis shoes and wanted something that would make me smile when I put on — my new Soludos do the trick every time. They are well worth the shoe investment! (Also easy to find LOTS of cute coordinating shirts!)" —Erin R.

    Get them from Soludos for $139 (available in sizes 5-11 and in white, blue, and pink).
