ICYMI: Tons of dog moms (myself included) have been on the hunt for comfortable, durable and easy-to-walk-in shoes to slip on for everything from long weekend walks at the lake to a ten-minute stroll before work. Lucky for us, a recent collaboration between the popular dog-walking app, Rover, and shoe mega-retailer, Zappos, is taking all the work out of the search with a specially curated collection of dog-walking shoes to suit every activity.

The Rover-Approved Dog-Walking Shoe Shop on Zappos is a selection of sneakers, sandals and more comfy kicks pulled from suggestions from 5-star dog walkers on Rover that have bought shoes *specifically* for the task—and average around 18,000 steps per day. You can expect to find everything from trendy, supportive Hoka sneakers ($140) to waterproof sandals ($38), so you're covered whether you head out on beach walks or hiking trails with your pup. And here's the real bonus: With every purchase made from the shop, shoppers will be emailed a code for a free Rover walk (a $25 value) for when your feet *finally* do tire out. This deal only lasts through the end of May—but don't worry, I've already picked out a few of my dog-walking faves from the shop below so you can get to shopping (and saving).

1. On Cloudswift 3 Sneakers


On's Cloud line of sneakers has been skyrocketing in popularity over the past few years—and I can totally see why. Not only do they have an adaptive fit that's designed to support a wide array of foot types, they're also made with a cushy CloudTec midsole to keep them extra comfy. In a review of another pair of On Cloud sneakers, PureWow Senior Commerce Editor Stephanie Maida says the cushioning feels "exceptionally bouncy and supportive," which you're sure to appreciate whether your pup prefers leisurely walks or a faster paced jog.

2. Reef Water X Slides


If you have a water dog that loves splashing around in the ocean or lakes on their outings, you'll love these waterproof sandals. They're constructed with a molded sugarcane EVA footbed that feels ultra-soft, per reviewers, who also call out just how comfy they are. One shopper says, "How can a water-safe...shoe be this soft and comfortable? Good colors, great price—can’t go wrong with this one. I am in between sizes and went down, and it fits perfectly." Now all you have to do is decide which color to choose—though, at this price, I wouldn't blame you for picking a few.

3. Merrell Siren Edge 3 Hiking Shoes


For pet parents who are always exploring a new hiking trail on the weekends, these Merrell sneaks are a must. They have earned tons of 5-star reviews for their stability and versatility. They're made with a breathable mesh lining that will feel airy in the warmer weather and a triple zone arch support insole that's intended to feel lightweight while contouring to the foot. Plus, buyers say they're not only great for hiking, but also walking, hitting the the gym and doing yard work.

4. Hoka Mach 6 Sneakers


Having worn these exact Hoka sneakers on my own daily dog walks for more than a month now, I can attest to just how worth it they are. The Mach 6 sneakers feel lightweight and add a bounce to my step, despite their thick sole, and they provide comfortable arch support. The shoes also have a roomy toe box that keeps my feet from feeling squished after a long day out.

5. Dolce Vita Beny Loafers


According to Rover and Zappos, pet parents everywhere often opt for a dressier shoe to get in a quick walk before heading out to dinner, and these lightweight loafers from Dolce Vita will offer both comfort *and* style. They come in two chic neutral shades, along with a trendier metallic silver hue, and have a slip-on style that's easy to step right into as you head out the door.
