    1. A pair of TOMS because they're the tried and true flat that's proven to be comfy and cute for years now. Plus, for every $3 TOMS makes, they donate $1 to Save the Children. What's the opposite of "buyer's remorse?"

    Promising review: "I love Toms and I wear them as much as I can since they just slip on. As soon as I tried these on, I fell in love! And my husband said immediately he liked these so much better than the classic espadrilles they make. These are classier-looking and work with everything! I wore mine with a cute jean skirt and tee and I got so many compliments." —ddtw

    Price: $20.26+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 37 styles)


    2. A pair of fuzzy cross-band slippers with a rubber sole to keep by your foyer, so you don't have to waste any time looking for shoes when your dog really, really has to be let out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these slippers — they are soft and comfy. They have rubber bottoms so if you need to run outside to let the dog pee or grab a food delivery, they are good — and because they are 'open toe' and fit for a bit of a wider foot, it gives breathing room where your feet don't get too hot in the summer months (with working from home, I find if I wear close-toed slippers, my feet get muggy and gross). So these shoes are literally the shoes I wear every day when I am at home. I have them in gray, but thinking of getting them in another color because I love them so much!" —Jill

    Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–10.5 and 14 styles)


    3. A pair of slip-on loafer mules that are as easy to put on as slippers, but give your outfit a totally polished look.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these! I get so many complements on them. They are comfortable and nice to slip on to pull together your outfit for an elevated look. I ordered a half size up. I could have ordered a full size up. Most mules run small so I knew to order up." —Ashley McTaggart

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and nine colors)

    4. A pair of slip-on sneakers because we simply don't have time to tie our shoes when we should've left the house 10 minutes ago.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are seriously cute, versatile and comfortable — especially for their price point. I usually order these 2x a year in a couple different colors, just to have some variety and freshen them up for the season after wearing them practically every day. They are true to size and go with so many outfits. I'm on a feet a lot and they are perfect for running errands, being on the go, etc! Highly recommend!" —COLEMAN-SMITH

    Price: $14.99+ (available in sizes 5.5, 6.5–11 and 21 styles)

    5. A pair of memory foam-cushioned knit flats that are made from stretchable, woven fabric, so your foot will be completely comfortable from all angles.

    Promising review: "Love these shoes! I was looking for a flat that looks professional and is comfortable, and these are perfect. I'm a wedding planner and spend roughly 10–12 nonstop hours running around at events. I have been wearing them at work for the last three months and my feet have been comfortable and blister-free. Plus, they look cute with slacks, a dress, or skinny jeans on my days off! I just wish they had more colors available because I'd buy them all!" —Erin B.

    Price: $37.96+ (available in sizes 5.5–11W and six colors)


    6. A pair of sock shoes because...I mean...sock shoes...it's like an answer to all our prayers. They're the perfect alternative to yoga shoes or barefoot shoes, offer support with a durable rubber sole, and are extremely comfortable with their moisture-wicking fabric upper.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are just like being barefoot...without the pain. Fit is fabulous and they are very stretchy like a sock so you can fudge the size. Great grip on all kinds of rock surfaces and your foot does not slide around inside the shoe. Allows your feet to spread, stretch, grip and twist to feel the terrain. You feel everything... it just doesn’t hurt lol. Did an 8-mile rock hike the first day and am thrilled with them. They are super easy to get on and off, just like socks. Seem to fit true to size." —Meryl

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes 5Women/4Men-14Women/13Men and 13 styles)



    7. A pair of foldable mesh flats that you can keep in your bag at all times in case of emergency. And by "emergency," I mean "having to wear heels for a wedding." 😲 Don't worry, you can slip these flats on immediately after the pictures are taken.

    Promising review: "I’ve been wearing these for about a year now and I can confidently say these are the most amazing flats I’ve ever owned. The nylon material fits like a glove and doesn’t lose its elasticity!! There is no 'break-in' period for these, they just are perfect, even for someone like me who has wide feet. I’m usually a size 9 wide and it fits perfectly. I rave about them whenever asked about good work-walking flats! HIGHLY recommend!" —April

    Price: $20.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 16 styles)


    8. A pair of Adidas slides for all your indoor-and-outdoor purposes. I have a pair and from my own personal experience, I will say that these are the perfect shoe for a midnight run to 7-Eleven.

    Promising review: "Adidas can always be counted on to deliver. These slides fit as expected, are very comfortable, and are cute as they can be." —Sara

    Price: $14.92+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 25 styles)


    9. A pair of studded mules that'll add a little ~edge~ to any outfit. No one's gonna mess with you while you're wearing these bad boys, I'll tell ya that much.

    Promising review: "Saved these shoes awhile back and bought them on sale recently. Oh my goodness, these are gorgeous!!! I have wide feet and usually wear size 7 or 7.5. Sized up to an 8 and they fit great! They’re very comfortable and not at all stiff. They look like I paid way more for them. I am super impressed!" —H. Williams

    Price: $28.32+ (available in sizes 6–9, 11 and four colors)


    10. A pair of Superga platform sneakers so you can have all the benefits of wearing flats but still get some height. A little extra oomph for your outfit, if you will.

    Promising review: "Super love these shoes. I get compliments on them all the time. They didn’t give me blisters, either, and I get them really easily. I love the little lift they give me and how they make my legs look longer." —Emili

    Price: $39.44+ (available in sizes 5–10 and five colors)

    11. A pair of slip-on boat shoes that are made with breathable canvas with a stylish raw hem finish, and can be worn with anything, ranging from shorts to casual trousers.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are fantastic. There's not much to them but they are super comfortable. I have big toe bunions and these easily stretched to accommodate. They look good. I considered similar Skechers which I think are just too plain. Ordered according to my size 10.5 US and they are a good fit, a bit loose but I could easily run in them. Love these shoes." — C. Grigg

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-13 and four colors)


    12. A pair of slip-on Converse because traditional lace-ups are kind of a hassle to put on — so instead, try these shoes with a stretchy back and fixed laces (aka the kind you'll never trip on or have to tighten).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you’re debating about whether to buy the Chuck Taylor lace up version or this slip on version, DEFINITELY go for the slip on!!! I ordered both to compare and while they look very similar on, the slip on was way WAY more comfortable. In particular, because the tongue of the shoe doesn’t seem to be as long in the slip on version, that means it won’t rub into the top of your foot and create unsightly marks. Ick! Who wants that? 3 cheers for the slip on!" —Urban Mom

    Price: $40.01+ (available in sizes 5–6.5, 7.5–10 and five colors)


    13. A pair of pointed toe leopard loafers for the days when you're feelin' feisty — but not feisty enough to be sacrifice comfort for style. Luckily, these have "heel-pillow" comfort and faux-suede lining for extra comfort and breathability —because nothing is more un-feisty than suffering through blisters all day.

    Promising review: "These shoes are incredibly comfortable and required zero 'break-in' time. The first time I wear a new pair of flats, I always bring a pair of backup shoes because inevitably the new flats rub my feet somewhere and cause blisters because they need to be broken in. With this pair, I didn’t use the backup pair I brought! I’ll definitely be purchasing these in more colors." —Rebecca

    Price: $23+ (available in sizes 5–13 and 14 styles)


    14. A pair of black canvas sneakers that easily transition from a daytime, errand-running shoe to a nighttime, dinner-date shoe.

    Promising review: "These shoes look amazing, with a cool, understated classic design. They are comfortable to wear with or without socks. These shoes feel like they were made by a cobbler just for me. I normally wear a 10.5, that's what I ordered. They fit perfect and have exceeded my expectations in every way. I have shoes that are 4 times more expensive, that I like less than these." —Samuel 

    Price: $24.65+ (available in sizes 6.5–13 and eight styles)


    15. A pair of Skechers knit slip-ons for those of us working on our feet all day. They've got a memory foam insole for extreme comfort, nonslip soles for maximum traction, and a scalloped edge for a little stylish flair.

    Reviewer wearing gray flat with white sole
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Super comfortable shoes! I work in a preschool in the infant room and I’m on my feet all day long. These shoes are super comfy, don’t rub against my skin, and the memory foam inside make them comfy to wear all day long! I also bought these in the nude color and I love that they go with anything I’m wearing to work on a daily basis. As someone who has foot issues and long, narrow, flat feet who usually has a hard time finding shoes that fit, these are perfect in every way and give me the support I need all day long!" —Shannon

    Price: $43.73+ (available in sizes 5–11Wide and nine styles)


    16. A pair of whimsical knit slip-ons with an art print design that are basically a walking piece of art. Art collectors rejoice — they're available in a ton of prints. 🙌

    Promising review: "These are the best shoes I have ever worn. I am a shoe fanatic. I usually wear heels but as I get older, I need something more comfortable but also stylish. I have very small feet but these fit perfect and are extremely comfortable. As for style, they meet all my expectations — when I am wearing them I have been stopped several times with compliments." —Sandy Kinney

    Price: $60+ (available in sizes 4.5, 5.5-10.5 and 16 styles)


    17. A pair of Timberland leather sneakers to carry you through any terrain, whether it be a complex hike in the woods or a walk up the block to your favorite bar. Up to you. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I graduated college and was going to backpack Europe for a month. I only wanted to bring one pair of shoes that would match about any outfit. I went with the navy blue ones. I was hesitant to buy them because I would be wearing them everyday with it raining a lot. They held up extremely well. Not one issue with them. I easily put over 100 miles walking into them. The day we visiting the Palace of Versailles, we walked a total of 17 miles. (According to my friend's Fitbit). I highly recommend these shoes!" —Tommy

    Price: $68.47+ (available in sizes 7–13 and three colors)

    18. A pair of knit jogging sneakers that look just as cool as the designer knits that are all the rage these days, but for a quarter of the price.

    Reviewer wearing all white high top knit sneaker
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just liked the style of this shoe. It wasn't until I arrived in LA and saw many folks with the same shoe style with a high end brand name on the side that I realized I was wearing a very good dupe! Oops. Still love them and wear them regularly. They have held up well for months now. Comfortable for all day wear." —Desireé P.

    Price: $26.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 33 styles)


    19. A pair of Minnetonka suede moccasins because yes, they are slippers but they have outdoor soles and go with jeans...meaning, we can finally wear slippers in public and get away with it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these slippers, they're super soft inside but hard on the bottom so you're able to wear them out of the house. Super comfortable. I wear them every day!" —Cira Hernandez

    Price: $39.95+ (available in sizes 5–6, 7–11 and six colors)


    20. A pair of ballet flats with a cutout floral design for your all dressier occasions that require fancy shoes. Fancy shoes ≠ heels...these'll show 'em.

    Reviewer wearing white floral cut-out flats
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Super super cute! I love the look and how they feel. They're very comfortable and they almost mold to my feet. I'm usually between a 10/11 so I ordered the size 11 and they fit perfectly. Definitely recommend if you want a cute unique pair of flats." —Megan Vest

    Price: $23.99 (available in sizes 5–10 and three colors)
