Whether you wear your sneakers everywhere or exclusively to work out, there’s no way to overstate the importance of a trusty pair of kicks. They transcend seasons, trends and can take a thorough beating before needing to be replaced.

They boast more benefits than just the sartorial, however. Podiatrists recommend sneakers as the shoe of choice for just about any common foot ailment. And there’s one brand in particular they gravitate towards: New Balance.

Board-certified podiatrist Ernest L. Isaacson tells Yahoo Lifestyle that he recommends New Balance for comfort and support, especially for those with wide feet. Dr. Nelya Lobkova declared New Balance slip-ons "great for prevention and generalized foot soreness,” and often recommends the brand’s Fresh Foam sneakers to patients, too.

Luckily for our feet (and our wallets), New Balance is having a huge semiannual sale on sneakers, slides and everything in-between. Sales this big are rare, so be sure to grab your picks while you can — sizes are going fast.

The 574 features the brand’s most popular upper, in two delightful pastel shades that scream spring and summer. The rubber outsole provides plenty of durability, while the traction sole ensures you’ll have plenty of grip (and won’t slip and slide).
