When something gains fame on TikTok, we get curious. That's what happened with these super cute and super comfy slip-ons. A little digging led us to discover that they're not only a viral sensation but are also the bestselling slides on Amazon. With thousands of perfect five-star reviews, the Cushionaire Feather Recovery Sandals just may become your favorite footwear for Summer '22. Around the house, in the garden, out on errands, on the beach — these beauties provide cloud-like comfort to make every step a pleasure. Also a delight? The price: just $25.
People love these cloud slippers for the cushy foam sole and molded footbed, but they have another big asset: They're waterproof, so you can wear them to the pool or in the shower without damaging them; their nonslip outsoles keep you stable. But there's plenty more to love about these slides.
Recovery after exercise
A lot of runners use what are called “recovery shoes" after workouts to help their feet recuperate. The idea has caught on with non-runners as well — and these slides have gained traction (if you will) with Amazon shoppers to ease post-exercise foot pain. They've garnered over 11,000 five star reviews.
Says one reviewer, who has done her research in the field of recovery shoes: “I have ordered several pairs trying to find the one that lives up to its hype. Well this one is it. Super cushy, fits true to size, I ordered the mauvish pink-colored one and love it. I will be ordering a black pair. I have a heel spur and plantar fasciitis so regular flip-flops bother me after several hours. These do not. Very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend.”
“Buy them,” another shopper states. ”Trust me.” Simple, but it says it all.
Everyday pain relief
Folks who spend a lot of time on their feet say these slides make it less of a chore, whether at home or at work: “Love these for when I'm standing [for] a long time in my kitchen cooking and baking,” says one customer. “Lots of support!"
“These shoes are so comfortable,” another reports. “I work in sales and stand all day. These slides are a pillow for my aching feet.”
“I have spondylolisthesis and spinal stenosis, so I get horrible back, leg and foot pain,” writes a relieved reviewer. “These shoes literally help relieve my pain while I’m working standing on my feet. They are super cute — I get tons of compliments on them — and they are breathable, lightweight and easy to keep clean.”
As cute as they are comfortable
TikTok is nothing if not stylish. You can count on the fact that Cushionaire slides are not just a dream on the feet but are considered cool, to boot.
“Love these!" one fashion-forward shopper says, “...Love that the laid back style is trending because these are literally perfect! So comfortable, and I’m very picky with what goes on my feet.”
“Very comfortable and stylish,” wrote a pleased parent. “Our college freshman daughter wears them everywhere.” That's a heads-up to keep an eye on your pair: They may be stalked and stolen by young family members. The solution? Buy two pairs. At $25 — and with colors ranging from basic black and brown to poppy purples and pinks — you'll be hard-pressed to choose just one anyway!
