After quarantining for months, you probably have a mental list of all the places you’re itching to go (while social distancing and wearing a mask, of course). You’ll need shoes that can handle the treks you have planned.

Great walking shoes are typically either stylish or comfortable, but rarely both. One of the few exceptions are Fitflops, which are on mega sale right now with prices up to 65 percent off, as well an extra 15 percent off sale items with code EXTRA15.

Fitflops are specially designed to be worn for hours without so much as a pinch or blister, and they’re totally gorgeous, too. Even podiatrists think so.

Dr. Dana Canuso, DPM particularly loves the brand’s sneakers featuring Microwobbleboard technology, which means they have three levels of support: firm cushioning at the heel to reduce impact, medium at the toes to put a spring in your step and soft in the middle for overall comfort. Says Dr. Canuso: “These sneakers are very shock absorbent and offer a ‘rocker bottom’ feel which helps relieve ball of foot and heel pain.”

Love to walk barefoot at home? It’s not a great idea for your foot health—but Dr. Canuso shared that the brand’s trademark flip flops are a strong compromise. “Wearing [them] in the house or on short walks will prevent the heel pain that comes with walking without shoes on,” she added.
