What does your summer shoe selection look like? If your answer is ‘I don’t know,’ or ‘exactly the same as last year,’ listen up: Clarks is having an amazing sale that delivers the perfect combo of style, support and pricing.

Clarks—the famous brand with a near-200-year history producing shoes that prioritize comfort—is offering an extra 40 percent off sale styles. We love Clarks because of their classic good looks. Podiatrists praise them for their function. “Clarks offer a lot of support,” says Dr. Polina Zaydenberg. The NYC-based board-certified podiatrist explains: “Most of the shoes have wider toe boxes, which helps prevent bunions, hammertoes and neuromas.” She also says Clarks are great for people with flat feet.

So whether you’re looking for a pair of everyday boat shoes, comfy flats, or chic mules for fancier summer parties (remember those? Fingers crossed on summer socializing!), you’ve come to the right place. Use the code “EXTRA40” at checkout, and you’ll get free shipping too.

Here are some of our absolute favorites from the sale.

These comfy sandals—available in regular or wide width—are soft all over, with fabric on top and a generously padded sole below. They look just as cute with a skirt as they do with shorts or jeans and will quickly become your favorite pair of summer shoes. Also in heather gray.

If you love the look of point-toe flats but don’t want the discomfort (or, per Dr. Zaydenberg, a one-way ticket to painful bunions) these slightly square-toed mules are a great alternative. The low heel improves comfort—the doc says a little lift is easier on the foot than stark flatness. And leather lining lets this pair breathe (and feel lovely as soon as you slip inside). Also in zebra stripe and yellow snake!

With a cork-inspired footbed, this very affordable pair is reminiscent of a certain pricey comfort brand. The Velcro closure ensures a perfect fit, and multiple layers of cushioned foam make these an absolute dream to walk in. Also available in basic black and a stunning metallic rose gold.

Lightweight but substantial enough to provide support, these crisscross sandals have flexible knit straps that gently hug the foot. The extra-padded sole improves shock absorption and creates a strolling-on-clouds feeling. Also available in black and soft blue-gray.

Gladiator styling for real life—this pair has extra arch support (calling all flat-footers!) and a chunky sole that provides significantly more comfort than a strappy flat. The hidden zipper in back makes them easy-on, easy-off. Also in blush, for that neutral-shoe-long-leg look we all love.

Slipping into these chic minimalist sandals is like sliding into a soft sock. The leather is so supple, it molds to your foot from above and below. The comfort is over the top. Wearing these gorgeous flats is a balm for the sole (get it?). Minimalist and of-the-moment, they’ll elevate anything you’re wearing from the ankles on up.
