Promising review: “When I find something I love, you just can't keep me away. This is my third pair. I just love this sandal. I live in a warm climate and wear them every single day. Even with heavy wear, a pair typically lasts me about four to five years before the sole wears down. So comfortable — there's just nothing that compares to it.”

At the core of Vionic’s mission statement is to provide its customers with comfortable footwear. After all, the brand was inspired by podiatrist Phillip Vasyli, who laid the foundation for orthotics — a feature that’s implemented into the design of each Vionic shoe. Each shoe provides stability, support and comfort for your feet.
Promising review: “I have been looking for a comfortable and casual summer sandal for quite a while and I have finally found it! I came across this shoe on a list of the most comfortable shoes to travel in and now that I received them I can tell that they are going to be my go to shoe for warm weather! There is good support for my entire foot, my foot does not slide side to side as they do with similar shoes, they are very comfortable, and the little bit of elastic on the buckle strap makes them easy to slip on and off without having to buckle and unbuckle every time I wear them! Love these shoes!!”

If you haven’t heard of Finn Comfort before, listen up because their footbeds are designed with your feet in mind. They are made of natural cork and intended to “encourage good posture and proper foot function while cradling and guiding your feet from heel to toe.” Even more so, they are “anatomically contour molded and ergonomically designed to support and gently reposition the heel, arch, muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones in the feet.”
Promising review: “I absolutely love these shoes! My husband and I own a convenience store, so I stand on my feet at work for more than 10 hours a day. I had major cramps in my feet before wearing these shoes, I have noticed that my lower back pain is gone as well. The cost for these shoes is well worth the money. They are very well made and fit like a glove. I will be purchasing more Finn comfort shoes in the future. I love that I can order new foot beds, these shoes will last for years.”

The motto of LifeStride is “comfort, meet style.” The soles are flexible and overall, the comfort technology is designed to offer extra support, even if it doesn’t look like it. After all, the collection includes chic slingback mules, gingham wedges and block heels that you can actually wear with confidence.
Promising review: “These are amazing! I normally wear an 8 but the 7 1/2 fit me perfectly. I have extremely narrow feet and ankles and these fit great. And...they are beyond comfortable. I’m always skeptical of people who claim a wedge or heel is comfortable but I swear these are better than my flats. They are so cushy I wear them running around town doing errands, not just for going out. So glad I found these!!”

If you love going on outdoor adventures, but often feel hindered by your shoes, Tevas are the answer. They were originally designed in the Grand Canyon by a river guide in 1984 and thus was born a sandal that can float, as well as support your feet on any outdoor trip. Today, they’re available in an abundant amount of shades and styles and are recognized by their signature velcro straps.
Promising review: “I haven't worn Tevas in year — -since my river-floating days. But I just went through chemo and have some residual foot swelling so sandals are really tough for me right now. Since Tevas have come back in style again, I thought I'd give them a try. Super comfortable. The velcro straps are great for my fluctuating feet. And I feel somewhat trendy in them too. Definitely worth your money for an everyday sandal!”
