    2. Adidas Cloudfoam sneakers that'll keep your feet feeling fresh, dry, and like they're literally walking on clouds.

    3. Women's Sanuk slip-ons with a footbed featuring an antimicrobial additive that'll reduce odor-causing bacteria that sweaty feet can cause.

    13. Converse high top sneakers for some timeless style (and gloriously breathable canvas fabric). You'll feel cool in more ways than one in a pair of these classic kicks!

    14. Breathable, sweat-wicking sneakers that'll look ~and~ feel cool on your feet — literally. I'll go ahead and ~air~ out the sweat-fighting secret: It's digital knit material.

    15. Toms slip-ons with breathable canvas in tons of colors and designs to comfortably wear all day and reliably keep your feet from sweating (and match everything in your wardrobe, BTW).

    Promising review: "Lightweight, breathable, and supportive. I love these shoes! They were snug at first as is expected with this brand. After wearing them for an hour they stretched comfortably around my strange duck feet and the insole began to conform while offering amazing support for such a simple slip on. Did I mention I love them?" –Janette Wilkins

    Get them from Amazon for $39.38+ (available in sizes 5–14 and in a wide variety of colors and designs).

    16. A pair of foam-soled slides in a super sleek silhouette that'll be your go-to for lounging around the house or running out in the a.m. for your morning cup of Joe (to bring back to your house and continue lounging). 

    Promising review: "These are veryyyy comfortable. I have back problems, Multiple Sclerosis, and walking issues. I can't ever find shoes that feel like my feet aren't saying 'Why are you doing this to me?' With these lil cuties 😍 I am over the moon and so are my feet. I wear them all around the house, shopping excursions and basically as slippers. Buy them, your feet will thank you for it." —Karla N La Bella

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 30 colors).
