    38 Shoes For Anyone Who Likes Walking But Hates Foot Pain

    Walking all over the city pre-quarantine...no problem. Walking all over the city *post*-quarantine...a struggle, tbh.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Adidas Cloudfoam Pure running shoes that'll make you feel like you're truly walking on a cloud, thanks to the memory foam sockliner, stretchy mesh upper, and Cloudfoam cushioning. Plus, you can slip these right on and off without tying and untying the laces!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    BuzzFeed editor Marquaysa Battle is *all* about these sneakers:

    "I own a black pair of these and they're seriously one of the comfiest friggin' sneakers I've ever worn (the other is a pair of New Balance) in my 29 years of life. The 'Cloudfoam' insole really does make it feel like your feet are walking on clouds. I thought that feeling might go away after several months of wear but the sneakers remain fluffy and relaxing. The sneakers were so comfortable that I started wearing them to the gym, to work, and even matching them with cute dresses for going-out looks. You'll probably want to order two pairs of these babies so you don't wear out a single pair after you fall in love. I bought my mom a pair as well."

    Get them from Amazon for $37+ (available in women's sizes 5–12 and 43 styles).

    Promising review: "I walk 3 to 4 miles a day, and this is by far the best shoe I've ever owned. It's like walking on pillows. If you have high arches and have experienced shin splints or high ankle pain, or even plantar fascitis, this shoe will blow your mind. I'm getting several colors." —Bebe D.

    Promising review: "I have feet that are always in pain- bunions, hammer toe, arthritis from prior breaks. These shoes are so comfortable I bought them in 3 colors. When I am walking around in these shoes, the pain is hardly noticeable. I highly recommend them." —Jeanine

    Get them from Amazon for $37.75+ (available in sizes 5–13 and 24 colors).

    Promising review: "Amazing sandals! I had my last pair for over six years. These wear exceptionally well and are super comfortable. I wore them brand new, straight out of the box, for a long weekend in Las Vegas recently. Even with all of the walking and sightseeing you do there, my feet never hurt and I did not get any blisters at all. I highly recommend them!" —Madredekd

    Black heels
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These shoes are some of the most comfortable heels I have ever purchased. I have heels that I paid over $100 for, but they aren't near as comfortable as these LifeStrides. I've worn these shoes several times to events or out to dinner, but today I wore them to work for 8 hours. I walk quite a bit at work, but these heels did not hurt my feet. I usually get pain in the balls of my feet, but these have just the right amount of cushion." —Joni R. Harris

    Get them from Amazon for $17.50+ (available in sizes 5–11 and seven colors).

    7. Some fashion-forward, lightweight knitted sneaks with a futuristic-looking rubber blade sole and *so much* comfort and support that you'll wonder if these shoes really are from the future.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Ok, I gotta say, I love these shoes. I'm a retail worker and I am on my feet eight to nine hours a day. I'm a personal shopper so my job requires me to walk several miles a day. I am very picky about shoes, I need something very comfortable with good support or else I am in severe pain after my shift. I noticed several of my coworkers wearing these, and I was curious, so I got a pair. I was NOT expecting to like these so much! My tried and true preferred work shoe has been Crocs. For years that was all I could wear to work and be comfortable. These shoes though, are actually better for me. They are surprisingly comfortable and supportive for my flat feet, and I love the memory foam soles. I am not in pain anymore thanks to these guys. I've only been wearing them for about two weeks now but I'm already noticing a remarkable difference. I hope they continue to hold up and last me a while, time will tell. They also look pretty cool and I love the colors. I actually get a lot of compliments on them, and people ask me where I got them. For the record, I wear a 9.5 size shoe and these fit perfectly. I was nervous about it but they fit as described for me. Anyway, yeah, if you need a comfy shoe, get these! I want other colors now." —Hannah

    Get them from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–10.5 and 17 colors).

    8. A pair of waterproof Columbia hiking boots that are ultra-breathable and designed for long-lasting comfort. Plus, the advanced traction rubber soles will help keep things slip-free in case you're trekkin' through any rough terrain.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I needed a waterproof boot that would also be good for lots of walking. I did a lot of walking in Ireland and Scotland, mostly in rainy weather, and these boots were true to their description. My feet were dry and comfortable." —Louise M.

    Get them from Amazon for $78.62+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 12 colors).

    9. Slip-on mules that are surprisingly comfy and easy to walk in for those days when you need something a little dressier than a sneaker.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are great shoes for work or going out. They look more expensive than they are and are very comfortable. I work in a city so I do quite a bit of walking every day and they’ve been fine, no blisters." —Megan D

    Get them from Amazon for $33.96+ (available in sizes 5-12 and six colors).

    10. A lightweight pair of New Balance FuelCore Nergize V1 Sneakers with plush, responsive memory sole inserts, breathable mesh, a snug, supportive fit, and a variety of color options to ensure that you look as good as you feel while strollin' around town.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Omg my back doesn't hurt anymore!! I'm so happy. A week ago I ordered a known brand and my back ached. I decided on this New Balance with this sleek look and couldn't believe it — no more back pain with this memory foam inside the shoe. Recommending at my age, late forties. Nice stylish shoe with comfort." —Andrea Bell

    Get them from Amazon for $29.97+ (available in women's sizes 5-12 and in wide sizes, plus 32 styles).

    11. Skechers Go Walk boat shoes made with lightweight, responsive cushioning reviewers swear by for ultra comfort.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My second pair of this style. I wore my last pair in several countries, over many years, lots of walking/light-mod hiking, and they held up great. But it was definitely time to replace them. They fit me perfectly, and when worn with no-show socks, I can walk for miles in them. Cute with shorts, jeans, or casual skirts/dresses." —cheddo

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and three colors).

    12. Asics Gel Venture sneakers that'll cradle and cushion your feet so you can get those steps in *without* the discomfort. You might even wanna get more than one pair once you see all of the cool color combos available, tbh.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this pair of athletic shoes. I bought another one recently (same style, different color pattern). These Gel Venture 5 are extremely comfortable. They keep me going when I am walking each of my dogs. I do at least 5.5 miles per day between the two pups. The support in these shoes keep me going at a brisk pace so that I can keep up with my dogs. If you do a lot of walking or are will be on your feet all day, these shoes are perfect!" —Stevie Wilson

    Get them from Amazon: for $52+ (available in women's sizes 5–11 and in 10 styles).

    13. Classic Keds Champion canvas sneakers that look nice with borderline anything, which is lucky because they're also super comfy! Whether you're walking the dog, running errands, or just meandering around the city, these are a great go-to pair to have on hand.

    Promising review: "Easily the most comfortable shoes I own. I can stand and walk in these all day and my feet never hurt. Don't take that lightly because my feet ALWAYS hurt, even since I was a kid. I wear my expensive Brooks sneakers all day and my feet hurt. I have so many different types of shoes and my feet always end up hurting after a few hours. But not in these Keds. I hope Keds never stops making these classics!" —Emily

    Get them from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in women's sizes 4–13, in narrow, regular, wide, and extra wide widths, and 10 colors).

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

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this shoe with almost no expectations... just to wear in the shower at the yoga studio. Much to my surprise they quickly became the shoe I wore TO yoga and then AFTER yoga. Next thing you know this is my favorite shoe for going for walks, bike riding and running errands, working in the studio (I live in Hawaii so we really don't wear covered shoes anywhere). I started choosing these over my Birkenstocks. I don't know how they did it but I hope they keep doing it. I'm now purchasing my third pair." —Hawaiian Style

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in women's sizes 6-11 and 48 colors).

    15. Skechers Performance Walking Shoes ideal for anyone looking for a *way* more comfortable ballet flat. Imagine your favorite sneakers... but ~in disguise~.

    The ballet flat-shaped walking shoes
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE the Performance Go Step Walking Shoe! I wore the shoes immediately after purchase and walked over 150 miles during a three week trip to Europe. I averaged 6 miles each day and had a few days of 10-11 miles and had no problems with the shoes. I like the look over the tennis shoe look and felt appropriately 'shoed' for dinner at casual dining locale to more upscale" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $99 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in 13 colors).

    16. Cushioned wedge sandals so unbelievably comfy, you'll wanna wear them all summer long.

    Beige wedge sandals
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you'd like to add 3 inches to your height without the dangers of toppling over, you've got to try these platform sandals! They're absurdly comfortable, soft, lightweight, and breathable. I've walked miles in these. The open strap design visually elongates the length of the leg. Also, there are lots of colors to choose from, and you will! I've got three and counting." —CC Mac

    Get them from Amazon for $46.29+ (available in sizes 5–11 and six colors).

    17. Lightweight and breathable sneakers that go all out for comfort while looking chic and giving your outfit some minimalist vibes. The knit upper hugs your foot and stretches with it as you move, the ventilating insole keeps things dry while making you feel like you're walking on pillows, and the pattern on the bottom of the sole is made from flexible grooves for extra grip to help avoid unexpected slips and falls.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot emphasize how much I love these shoes. Would I wear these shoes to work out? No. But I can walk for miles in these things, it is like walking on air. They are so light and so comfortable, and they look interesting and people comment on them often. I have worn them very frequently since I got them three months ago and there is almost no wear to be seen. So, they are pretty hardy for the price they're at. Considering I've owned expensive Nikes, I'd go with these over my previous shoes. They are so similar in make and feel to the Nikes I've owned, but a much better price — and as a minimalist I enjoy that there is no visible branding!

    Get them from Amazon for $11.34+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 28 colors).

    18. Some comfy Sam Edelman rain boots that don't feel *or* look like rain boots, because nobody wants to trudge around all day with bulky feet only for the forecasted rain to blow over without a single drop.

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    My fellow BuzzFeed Editor Rebecca O'Connell is a biiiiig fan of these to say the least:

    "I hate rain boots. They're clunky, uncomfortable, and just cumbersome monsters that take up too much space in my closet. And as helpful as they're supposed to be, I can never figure out when to wear them. It seems like whenever I put them on, the rain stops an hour later and I'm the one doofus wearing rain boots on a sunny day. As much as I'd like to swear off rain boots forever, I don't really feel like moving to Arizona, and I'm sick of coming home in waterlogged sneakers. That means finding a compromise: waterproof shoes that can be passed off as normal shoes.

    But thankfully, I found these Sam Edelman boots on Amazon. The matte boots are subtle and can easily pass off as normal shoes. They're comfortable, and most importantly, definitely waterproof. I have flat feet so there's a little extra space between my foot and the top front of the boot, but it doesn't make walking difficult or painful. They have little tabs on the heels, which make it easy to yank the boots on and off. Finally, I can wake up on a rainy day and not have a minor breakdown trying to figure out what shoes to wear."

    Get them from Amazon for $14.45+ (available in sizes 4–11 and 6 styles).

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

    19. Cute faux-leather pumps that are way more comfortable and supportive than any heels you've ever known, thanks to the helpful straps that keep you from sliding around, plus the flexible and cushioned design that'll help keep your feet from hurting after wearing these for extended periods of time.

    Beige strappy heels
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Soooo comfortable (for heels) and the perfect height for someone like me who tends to wobble in high heels. With LifeStride, I can run in these. Seriously. They're cushy on the inside, and I love the fact that they have rubber nonslip soles. I feel very secure walking in these. This brand is the most comfortable I've ever walked in. This is my third pair of LifeStride and I'm pretty sure this is the only brand I will buy for the rest of my life." —Search Party

    Get them from Amazon for $33.29+ (available in sizes 5–11 and seven colors).

    20. Chunky white sneakers that'll help you stay on trend while walkin' easy! Try 'em with some cropped mom jeans and prepare for a ton of compliments.

    Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I wore these traveling abroad and they were a life saver when you are walking miles and miles every day! Aesthetically pleasing enough for photos without compromising comfort at all. My first pair was white which got dirty easily but came out like new when washed, but this time I ordered black ones which are able to look new for longer." —Ambuul F.

    Get them from Amazon for $59.95+ (available in sizes 6–9).

    21. Stylish Reebok Women's Club C 85 vintage sneakers here to add a subtle retro vibe to your outfit while absorbing impact and cushioning your feet so you'll feel like you're walkin' on air!

    Reviewers note to buy these in a size up from your usual shoe size!

    Promising review: "Love these shoes! I saw them in store at UO but they didn't have my size. Obviously I turned to Amazon because what doesn’t this site sell, and lo-and-behold, y’all had it. I try to pair these with almost every outfit because they’re so comfy and stylish! Recently went to Philly, where I had to walk everywhere because we didn't rent a car and these were only pair of shoes I brought (I travel light). These didn’t cramp up my feet at all as I walked over seven hours daily over the course of five days. Definitely recommend!" —Alli J

    Get them from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in women's sizes 5–11 and 18 styles).

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

    22. Steve Madden sandals that somehow manage to be comfy to walk in despite having no arch support. Maybe don't plan on hiking for hours in these, but they're great for every day walking around when you wanna let your toes get a lil' fresh air.

    Tan thick strap sandals
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these sandals! Steve Madden is always a guarantee which is why I have been a loyal customer for the past 15 years! I recently bought these sandals for my honeymoon in the Riviera Maya. Didn't even bother to break them in before hand. I can honestly say they are very COMFORTABLE! I walked around everywhere and although they have no arch support, my feet didn't hurt at all. No blisters either. Highly recommend! Will continue to be a loyal customer of Steve Madden." —Vania

    Get them from Amazon for $44.95+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 15 colors).

    23. Slip-on OLUKAI sneakers ingeniously designed with a drop-in heel, so you can slide your feet right over the foldable back — making them convenient to slip into when you're in a hurry. Plus, they're ultra-breathable and made to be super cushy and supportive so your easiest shoe can also be your comfiest!

    Olukai / Via instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have bad feet — flat arches and a congenital bone defect. My feet tend to always hurt with much walking unless I'm wearing running shoes or hiking boots. I decided to try these for a couple of days of walking on a trip to Boston recently and they were great! It was 94 degrees, but my feet did not overheat (I wore no-see socks with them). Most importantly, I also didn't get my usual arch/foot pain. Less importantly, they are super cute and can be worn with a skirt, shorts, pants, etc. I definitely recommend giving them a try." —Heather B Schmitz

    Get them from Amazon for $66.17+ (available in women's sizes 5–12 and 27 styles).

    24. Platform heels that'll convert anyone who's sworn off heels altogether to reconsider their position once they realize these are somehow actually comfortable to walk in.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this shoe!! It's actually comfortable for having a heel! I cannot wear heels anymore, since I've had plantar fasciitis seven years ago, but I took a chance on these and I'm glad I did. Wore them in the evenings on vacation, and did a lot of walking on cement. My feet NEVER got sore. I have a wide foot, so the width was perfect. I wear a 7 and ordered a 7; also a perfect fit. So comfortable and cute!!" —Tracy

    Get them from Amazon for $47.66+ (available in sizes 4–12 and two colors).

    25. A pair of lightweight, breathable Crocs to keep the air flowing while your feet enjoy the ultimate comfort. Plus, you can add fun lil' charms to make your pair uniquely yours!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love these Crocs!! Family planned a vacation to Disney and we heard that to avoid blisters we should purchase a pair of Crocs. Needless to say, they saved our vacation. I wore nothing but the Cros while we were there. I didn't want to take the chance of getting blisters walking 25,000 steps a day for 10 days. They are quick and easy to dry after getting wet, can be worn with or without short socks, are very comfortable to walk in, and are cushioned and arch support. Toe width has enough room for a comfortable spread with no rubbing on sides or top of toes. I wouldn't recommend any other shoe for Disney or for sore tired feet. Just love them!" —Doreen

    Get them from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes 4–14 and 26 colors) and a set of 25 charms from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three styles).

    Promising review: "I LOVE these sandals! I receive so many compliments each & every time I wear them. I walked for long periods of time in them and they never hurt my feet and they have held up to the many miles that have been put on them" —Nicholette

    Get them from Amazon for $45+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 20 colors).

    28. A pair of pumps loved by reviewers who usually *hate* wearing heals. These are adored because 1) they look taller than they feel — making them much easier to walk in, 2) they're designed with soft cushioning that makes them feel almost as comfy as sneaks, and 3) they don't make that loud ~click clack~ sound that alerts everyone to your arrival when you're still way down the hall.

    Red pumps
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am not a big heels person — I work a professional job and attend a lot of meetings and do a lot of walking. I typically stick to flats or shorter heels when absolutely necessary. I love the way heels look, but never seem to find them comfortable enough to endure all day. I ordered these LifeStride Parigi pumps and several other heels at the same time, but these were the CLEAR winner. They are so comfortable!!! I only really intended to wear them for one occasion, but they are so comfortable and stylish that I've worn them several days already." —Erin D.

    Get them from Amazon for $13.01+ (available in sizes 5-12 and 24 colors).

    29. A TIOSEBON athletic walking shoe specifically designed to keep your feet happy while walkin' around. They certainly won't be complaining after spending some time in these!

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

    Promising review: "During Covid-19, I've been lucky enough to have outdoor space to walk in while still keeping distance from others (wearing a mask, of course)! My old sneakers had worn out and since my feet are wide, and my budget is narrow, I needed a well-made walking shoe that fit both. After some online research, I saw these highly-rated Tiosebon shoes and ordered them. I've walked about 10 miles total since they arrived last week and they are wonderful. There is absolutely no "new shoe" rubbing or blisters, and they are super-light and well cushioned. They are also well ventilated so there's no sweatiness. Highly recommended!!" —Knickers62

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 5-13 and in 35 colors).

    30. Low wedge flats with a supportive ankle strap, cushioned foot-bed, and a whole lotta style to accompany you through the day.

I’m normally a size 6.5 and have a wider foot across the toes. I ordered the size 6 and they fit perfectly. I wore them all day and no issues, no blisters, no 'new shoe' uncomfortableness. I would highly recommend!" —Memphis Market Co. David and Grace

    Get them from Macarena Collection on Etsy for $40.72 (originally $50.90; available in sizes 5–10).

    Promising review: "These are not just gorgeous shoes — they are comfortable and supportive. I have trouble finding shoes that fit properly (I have a high arch) but these fit great! No blisters or scrapes, plus as soon as they arrived, I could walk over a mile without having to break them in. I get so many compliments on them, too! I highly recommend." —emnkugler

    Get them from Artesanías Camila on Etsy for $49.99 (available in sizes 5–10 and three colors).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these New Balance sneakers! I was looking for a pair of cute, stylish, and comfy sneakers to wear everyday with my “mom uniform.” They look so cute with jeans or leggings and match everything! They are super comfortable for long walks at the park with the kids. They definitely are very supportive. The heel part is really nice, because of the way it’s constructed, it doesn’t rub your heel! I got these in size eight, my normal size in NB. To me they run ever so slightly large/wide. It’s not a big deal though! I’m definitely going to order more colors! If you are looking for comfy stylish sneakers I definitely recommend these!" —Lee

    Get them from Amazon for $69.84+ (available in standard and wide sizes 5–12 and in 40 color options).

    34. Brooks Ghost 13 sneakers ideal for both running and walking. Why bother with blisters, rubbing, and general discomfort when you can treat your feet to these babies??

    a reviewer in light blue sneakers
    amazon.com

    BuzzFeed Editor Heather Braga has and loves these! Here's why: 

    "These are the most recent addition to my outdoor running/walking sneaker collection. I really like the cushioning in these babies and how shock absorbent the base of the shoe is. The bottoms are a bit rigid, so they make me feel a lot more sturdy when walking on wet ground. I didn't even need a break-in period! They were comfortable from the first time I laced-up." 

    Get them from Amazon: women's for $103.45+ (available in sizes 4.5–13, medium and wide widths, and 24 styles), men's for $89.99+ (available in men's sizes 5–15, medium, wide, and extra-wide widths, and 22 styles).

    35. Some Lane-Eight trainers that are absurdly comfortable and made without animal products. Whether you're working out, walking all over the city, or just running out quickly, you'll be glad these are on your feet.

    Lane-Eight, Jonathan Mazzei / BuzzFeed

    I've worn these shoes while trekking all over NYC, and am always amazed at how great my feet feel after. They fit perfectly, are super lightweight, make my feet feel supported without hugging *too* tightly, and — I know everyone says it — but they truly make you feel like you're walking on clouds. These pretty much instantly bumped my other go-to sneaks to the back of the line, and I always reach for them before heading out the door.

    Get them from Lane-Eight for $110 (available in men's sizes 7–13 and 11 colors/styles; also available in women's sizes).

    36. Sorel Kinetic Impact Lace Sneakers with a trendy street style vibe and lots of comfort to ~boot~!

    Heads up that the laces actually do go around the bottom of the shoe and don't need to be fully untied!

    Promising review: "I normally don't like wearing tennis shoes all day because my feet tend to sweat in them, then swell when I take them off. These are the best brand of tennis shoes I have ever owned. They feel wonderful on my arthritic feet, and my feet breathe in them all day, so they never sweat and don't swell up when I take them off. I bought a second pair in white. Well worth the money. All my other tennis shoes are going to Goodwill." —SBoo

    Promising review: "I broke my foot 37 years ago and it left me with a bump/deformed foot so I can only wear Mary Jane type shoes. These are so comfortable, so stylish and so quiet for clog-type shoes! I have tried other more expensive clog-type nursing shoes and they do no come close to the comfort of Dansko shoes! I love them!!!" —Amazon customer
