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.

These rose-colored cuties offer a slim, low-profile silhouette, and have all the makings of a wear-everywhere shoe. Also in indigo and gray.
These aren’t just chic—they’re comfy too. The snazzy heritage-inspired design adapts to your foot, and the EVA midsole provides shock absorption and support.
These kicks provide comfort no matter where you are — the road, on a treadmill, hitting the pavement — and look good doing it. They have an easy slip-on design as well as a sock-like upper. The foam midsole gives lightweight support and cushioning. Available in three colors.
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).
The brand’s iconic heritage design, in a too-cute-for-words split saddle design? Yes, please. This stylish pair of kicks makes a great walking shoe.
These svelte trainers feature a slip-on design and cushioned sole. A large logo is brandished on the back, so when someone asks you where you got your chic new shoes, just kick up your heels.
These slip-ons boast all the accouterments of a good sneaker: cloud-like underfoot cushioning, a sturdy leather upper and a design that easily lends itself to everyday wear, both with or without socks.
