    29 Shoes To Help You Live Your Best Comfy Life

    Being cute *and* comfy is your destiny.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. Adidas Cloudfoam sneakers that'll take your morning run to the next level. You'll truly feel like you're walking on a ~cloud~ thanks to the soft cushioning that hugs your feet.

    Promising review: "These shoes are the best shoes I've ever had and I'm a shoe fanatic! When I say I've worn them all day and it feels like I'm walking on clouds, they do! No more walking with my toes crunched up or feeling constricted because the shoe has no flexibility in the toe area (which makes my toes sore). These shoes are flexible and breathable. This right here is honestly a game changer for the comfort of my feet! They don't hurt, plus they look great." —L Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and eight colors).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    2. A handmade pair of leather huarache sandals for a ~solemate~ so stylish and comfy, it only makes sense to snag 'em in every color. The platform gives you just enough height without actually committing to wearing heels.

    Macarena Collection is an Etsy shop based in Buena Park, California, that specializes in colorful Mexican shoe and clothing design. 

    Promising review: "Shoes are so cute and comfortable. I bought the black and I actually want to get other colors. Perfect for skirts, summer dresses, capris, and jeans. I will take them when I return to Italy. Love them!" —Melissa McCormick

    Get it from Macarena Collection on Etsy for $40.72 (originally $50.90, available in sizes 5–10 and in more colors/styles here). 

    3. Double-buckle sandals if you've been on the hunt for cozy Birkenstock dupes at a much more appealing price. Slide your puppies into these sandals and never look back.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these sandals and have bought them in multiple colors. I was reluctant at first because my feet are very narrow, but a size 7 fit me exactly as my other size 7 shoes do. The buckles are also adjustable for those with narrow or wide feet. They are super comfortable and provide a good amount of arch support. I used to get hip pain from walking in flip-flops, but I haven't had it since I've worn these. I really love the variety of colors and how they go with shorts, sundresses, or even jeans. I wear them when I'm gardening, as house slippers, and going out. I would highly recommend these sandals, especially because of how cheap they are compared to many other shoes." —Kat Platt

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 6–11 and 42 colors).

    4. A pair of downright heavenly Allbirds wool runners your feet will thank you for. You don't have to be a runner to fall in love with these sneakers. They're super versatile, so you can use them for workouts, errands, and daily wear.

    I've owned these sneakers for over a year now and I never travel without them. It's my ideal airport shoe because you get solid support and a flexible fit, so your feet are never sore after a long travel day. If you're like me and love a sneaker that you can slip on and off *without* untying the laces (perfff for the TSA line!), these are a true gem. I also wear them for my daily walks and when I'm running errands because they're just that comfy. You can even toss them in the washing machine on a gentle cycle when they need a good cleaning. I also feel good investing in these sneakers because I know they'll last, but also because Allbirds is committed to sustainability and plans to cut its footprint in half by 2025.

    Get it from Allbirds for $110 (available in sizes 5–11 and 16 styles).

    5. Chunky Fila sneakers when you're going for '90s vibes that'll also give your footsies some TLC. These popular kicks are making a well-deserved comeback, so why not join the resurgence?

    Promising review: "These Fila platform sneakers make my millennial self feel like a hip Gen Z-er. Have you found yourself wondering where to find 'the cool shoes those kids are wearing?' You know, 'that kind of resembles the New Balances dad wears but, like, cool?' These are them. I can’t help you with the loose mom jeans thing though, still working on that. Hit me up if y’all figure that out. But as for chunky white shoes that are so in right now? These are them...10/10 these Fila platform sneakers will make you cool again." —Lily

    Get them from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in sizes 4–11 and 42 colors).

    6. Steve Madden ankle boots to check off two *very* important boxes on your list: ✅ trendy and ✅ comfy. Once you put these boots on, you may never want to take them off.

    Promising review: "The color was perfect. Goes with all jeans, flare, straight, skinny! Very comfortable. Wore traveling through airports, etc., and my feet were still happy by day's end! Highly recommend!" —TimC3

    Get it from Amazon for $64.98+ (available in sizes 5–13,  including wide sizes, and nine colors).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    7. A pair of endlessly supportive Dr. Scholl's kicks that'll have your back (and feet) through thick and thin. Sliding in and out of these is easy peasy, so they're destined to become your go-to shoes.

    FYI: These are made from recycled bottles!

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes to wear on vacation to the Grand Canyon. I did a lot of walking on that trip, and my feet never hurt and I still looked cute. Then a few months later, we went to Durango, Colorado and did a ton of walking and again, my feet never hurt. I washed them and let them air dry several times over the next year and they came out great every time. They soon became my daily shoes to wear around the house. I have already bought a second pair to replace them so I can still look cute and be comfortable and wear the first pair when I water the garden. I would definitely recommend these shoes!" —J. Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 5–13, including wide sizes, and 29 designs).

    8. Infinity Glide sneakers because who said you can't have comfort *and* style at the same time? The sleek slip-on design is made with a flexible knit material so they're easy to put on and take off when you're in a hurry.

    Avre is a Taiwanese American-owned small biz making sustainable footwear for women. 

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Abby Kass says: "These sneakers from Avre are one of my favorite pairs of shoes. I've had them for almost two years now, and I wear them all the time. Since they're made of knit fabric, they stretch right onto your foot and are super comfortable. Plus, the chunky heel adds a bit of extra style. I mostly wear them with leggings and joggers (because that’s what I live in), but I have worn them with jeans too. They do run big, so I would size down a half size. I also love that they’re made from recycled water bottles, as I’ve been trying to be a little more conscious with my purchases."

    Promising review: "These shoes are both super stylish and so comfy! Easy to pair with any outfit, great for wearing casually or working out. Love them!!!" —Kiana

    Get them from Avre for $145 (available in sizes 5–10 and in five colors).

    9. Tie-dye Crocs for those laidback days when you need a pair of shoes that'll transport you directly to chill town. These are perfect for hanging out at home, running around town, or hitting the beach.

    Promising review: "After years of my sister egging me on to purchase Crocs, I finally (drunkenly) relented. I wear a 6.5 in women’s shoes and, after reading reviews, decided to buy the size 6 in Crocs. They fit very well; still a lot of room in them for my feet. I had always thought all the hype made no sense...after only a few hours, I can see clearly that I was wrong. They are so comfortable. Crocs aren’t an attractive shoe, but I find these super cute. And for all the comfort they’ve provided so far, blown away!" —erin

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 4–17 and 27 colors).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    10. Cross-strap ballerina flats so you can look just as amazing as your feet feel. These snuggly cuties put a fun spin on classic flats without compromising on comfort. Where do I sign?

    Promising review: "These shoes are absolutely adorable! I got my usual size 6 and they fit perfectly. No room to spare, but not uncomfortably small. Plus the slight cushion at the bottom makes them feel comfortable. These shoes are everything I could ask for in a flat shoe. Very happy with this purchase. I can’t wait until spring and summer to rock them with dresses and shorts. I ordered another pair in black and one in multi." —Melanie_and_David

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 13 colors).

    11. A pair of *the* best Minnetonka moccasins to ever exist and I can personally attest to this. The faux-fur lining is unbelievably soft and they have a hard rubber sole so you can easily wear them outside.

    I'll admit that I own these in so many colors, I've lost count at this point. These moccasins are *the* perfect house slippers, which I basically live in during the winter months. They have a fuzzy faux-fur lining that offers just enough cushion without causing your feet to overheat. The rubber sole is durable enough to be worn outside, but I personally find it hard to leave the house when I'm in my comfy zone with these shoes.

    Promising reviews: "Cozy, comfy, and very well-made slippers. They’re mostly for around the house, but the non-slip sole lets me step outside if I need to. Perfect color." —Reader from Fairfax

    "There’s nothing to dislike about these slippers. They’re comfortable, cute and can be worn inside and outside. The lining is soft. I’ve tried two other brands of slippers and returned them. These are keepers!" —Folly girl

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95+ (available in sizes 5–11, including wide sizes, and 25 colors).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    12. A chic pair of platform sandals because yes, you can ~step up~ your fashion game without enduring the agony that comes from wearing painful pumps.

    Promising review: "My new favorite shoe. Soooo comfortable. The straps loosened up as I wore them, which was perfect for my wide foot. The platform is flat enough that you don’t feel like you have on heels all day." —Tierra major

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 41 colors).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    13. A wonderfully versatile Rothy's slip-on that'll hug your feet while providing all-day comfort that keeps you coming back for more. No seriously, you'll probably end up buying multiple pairs. You've been warned.

    Psst: These kicks are made with Rothy's signature thread, which is spun from plastic water bottles! And, since these don't have much stretch to them, reviewers recommend ordering half a size up. 

    Promising review: "This is my third pair of the slip-on sneakers and I absolutely love them! So comfortable, versatile, and easy to clean. I have literally been wearing them for five days straight. If you are considering the slip ons, give them a try. You won't be disappointed." —Michelle L.

    Get it from Rothy's for $119 (available in sizes 5–13 and 13 colors/designs). 

    14. Unisex color-block sneakers for gracing your feet with a soft linen interior and stellar arch support. The high-quality sole is made for durability and traction, so you can count on these kicks to last.

    Promising review: "These shoes are well-made and comfortable. The colors are just like the picture. These are perfect warm-weather shoes!" —Kathryn Lindrose

    Get them from Domo Ink for $85 (available in women's sizes 5–12 and men's sizes 3–14).

    15. Memory foam slippers when you want to feel as though you're ~walking on a dream~ until you head to dreamland. The non-skid sole makes them suitable for indoor *and* outdoor use, so enjoy them anywhere you please.

    Promising review: "Very well made, high quality slippers! So comfy and also cute! My feet stay warm but not so much as to sweat. Just right! Non-slip sole, you can step outside or stay in, either way these slippers take you there in comfort and style." —Gale

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes 5–12 and 12 colors).

    16. Or some Ugg slipper slides that'll forever redefine what it means to be cozy AND cute. Whether you're busy being a homebody or you're out and about, these slipper slides are the best of both worlds.

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer owns a pair of slipper slides and says: "First thing that needs to be said is that Uggs are great! They're warm, they're cozy, and you can just slide them on when you're freezing — I won't hear otherwise! They're not exactly high fashion, but they don't *need* to be when it's a straight-up polar vortex outside. So when I saw these Ugg slipper slides with an elastic back, I just had to buy a pair. I don't know what it is about them I find the cutest: the slightly sporty elastic, the Michelin Man–esque plush rolls on top, or the chunky bottoms that give you a little extra height. AND they have all the comfort of a slip-on slide, but without the feeling that your foot is going to fall out any second.

    "They have a hard sole, so you can wear them as indoor slippers, half-indoor-half-outdoor take-out-the-trash shoes, or real regular shoes (aka what I'm going to use them for). When it's still warm-ish out, I'm going to wear them with my toes poking through, but they're also going to be *so* cute with socks (team socks + sandals 'til I die!!!!!). And they're SO SOFT AND COMFY! I'm prepared to live in these all fall. Paired with leggings and a blazer? It's the perfect 'Ugh, I can barely make today happen' work outfit. I honestly want to get another pair in another of the cute colors...or the leopard print. Oh, and just FYI, I ended up sizing down in these!"

    Get them from Amazon for $65.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 40 colors) or from Nordstrom for $50+ (available in sizes 5–12  and six  colors).
