These are so good for many reasons! They're lined, the size is what I expected (I've got narrow feet and calves), they have thick insoles and outer soles, they're pretty, very sturdy, and most of all...comfortable. Look no further! Definitely buy these!" —Cristine

    Promising review: "I never write reviews, but this purchase warrants one. I ordered my usual size, 9.5, and they fit perfectly! I have several other shoes in a similar style, but these are by far the most comfortable. My favorite characteristic is the amount of space in the landing of the shoe. Your toes will not hang over the front. I will be buying another pair! If you’re torn about purchasing these, don’t be! Order them. You will not regret it." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I LOVE THESE SHOES. They look exactly like Keds but for half the price. They are extremely comfortable and go well with everything. I ordered a pair of black and a pair of light gray. I will probably order the white as well because I love them so much. I usually wear a size 7-7.5 and I ordered these in a size 7 and they fit great. They do stretch out a little over time so I wouldn't recommend ordering larger than your usual size." —Christea

    17. A pair of multi-colored Vans that'll delight anyone who wants some POW in their power walks.

    19. A pair of floral patchwork sneakers that are sure to put a real ~spring~ in your step.


    Promising review: "I love, love, love these shoes! I did not have any problem with the fit; I wear an 8 and they fit perfectly. They’re a tad heavier than a normal running/cross training shoe but they are still comfortable for running errands and slipping on quickly. I bought the camo print and have received several compliments. The soles are a little slick on the bottom at first; just scuff up the bottoms on your sidewalk or driveway. I’m about to order another pair in the gray! I love them!" —Mike & Christy

    Get them from Amazon for $23.59+ (available in 24 colors and sizes 5.5–11).

    20. A waterproof pick so you can wear shoes that'll go swimmingly with your favorite outdoor activities (and your favorite outdoor outfits).,

    Promising review: "These are really good for use on lakes or rivers. They give the bottom of your feet good protection when stepping on small to medium rocks. The top side that covers your foot is of soft spandex material, giving you that really comfortable, tight feel overall. The bottom rubber is really flexible. I also got a pair for my wife and she really liked them." —Joe

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 51 colors and sizes 4.5–15).

    21. A pair of comfy loafers to keep your feet from being toast when your family turns your nightly walk into a marathon.

    A model wearing the sandals with jeans, the braids wrap around the big toe and cross in random patterns above the foot and around the ankle

    Promising review: "These are adorable and very comfortable! The straps are flexible and I feel like they would conform to all foot shapes. I personally have pretty narrow feet, with VERY high arches that collapse inward when I stand up. These are WAY more comfy than traditional flip flops. They fit perfectly. The straps don't bother your big toe, because they're soft and stretchy, so that's awesome. And they don't cause blisters. They lift up a tiny bit when I walk, but they still stay secure on my feet, so I can wear these to a theme park or something and not worry about them sliding off at all. I'm very happy with my purchase and thought these were a great deal. :)" —K.M.

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in 11 colors and sizes 6–11).

    Hey! You just saved enough money to buy another pair of shoes!
