Whether it’s lower back pain, shoulder strain or arthritic hands, there’s often something making it hard to bend and tie shoes. At times this simple task can become a truly painful chore. But if you want to wear good sneakers for support and comfort, bending and tying is part of the deal, right?
The Tiosebon Women’s Slip-On Walking Shoes, on sale for $30 (was $35), have the cozy fit of a traditional sneaker but they slip right on. The upper part of the shoe is made from stretchy, breathable mesh, which expands over your foot like a sock. The sole is soft, bendy and durable, plus it’s so lightweight you’ll feel like you’re floating. The best part, of course, are the bungee laces: They hold your foot stable, but require no tying.
Dr. Polina Zaydenberg, DPM, is a fan of the style. “The wide toe box provides plenty of accommodation,” she shares with Yahoo Life. “It’s important for your toes to be in a natural position — it means they can breathe. If you have hammertoes, bunions or plantar fasciitis, this is a must. It also gives you fewer opportunities to get blisters.”
They’re popular among shoppers, too: They’ve amassed more than 2,500 five-star reviews. Here’s what some had to say:
Nurses love them
Nurses — or anyone in the medical field — spend all day on their feet. If anyone can vouch for a shoe’s comfort, it’s a medical professional.
“I am IN LOVE with these shoes!,” one wrote. “I’m a veterinary nurse and am on my feet for 9+ hours a day, and these shoes are so comfy and supportive throughout the entirety of my shift. I bought a pair of New Balances for almost $80 right before I found these guys and they’re not even as comfortable as these shoes! I HIGHLY recommend these unbelievably cushioned, stretchy-topped, heavenly shoes!”
Another added: “I am a nurse. I have worn the shoe for an entire shift and my feet and legs still felt good at the end of the shift. Good support, but you feel like you're walking on air. Even better than barefoot!”
A third chimed in to share her agreement: “I use these shoes for clinicals and work as a nurse; spending long hours on my feet and stepping into rather ugly messes, I needed a shoe that was comfortable and could stand up to frequent washing. These are doing very well, and have yet to start falling apart. Well worth the little money paid.”
Incredibly comfortable for those with foot or ankle pain
Don’t just take the doctor’s word for it: Shoppers with various foot ailments rave about the style. Says one shopper:
“I was super worried about buying these shoes. I have plantar fasciitis so my feet hurt a lot. These are so helpful in keeping my feet from hurting. I wear them even around the house. I love how light they are and I can pull them on and off so easily....LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!”
One skeptic shared: “...I was really pleased! I recently broke my ankle and have begun the rehabilitation process (post-surgery). I can only speak for myself but these shoes provided stability and support and have really helped me in building endurance. Also, it was easier to put on with swelling with no ties and the flexibility of sliding on (vs trying to get in a shoe and getting the heel right).”
Even a shopper with hip and back surgery shared that these feel like “walking on air.”
“These shoes are amazing!” she writes. “I've had hip replacement and back surgery not to mention I have wide feet. It's been a nightmare trying to find the right pair of shoes that give great support, are comfortable and are stylish. These do it all! Feels like you walk [on] air, good sole to absorb shock.... Stitching is great. A solid manufactured product They are light weight which eases the pressure on hips. Easy slip on—no more struggling to bend over.... Love these! “
Of course, most shoppers agreed: These shoes are wildly, out-of-this-world comfortable. And really, is there anything more important?
“These are so comfortable and light,” a shopper reported. “I love that they are ‘dressier’ than regular sneakers, so they look good with jeans and casual pants.” True. These shoes have a sleek upscale profile.
Shoppers can’t stop raving about their Tiosebons:
“I have a hard time finding comfortable shoes,” one reviewer noted. “But these are very lightweight and comfortable, and best of all, they're easy on-easy off.”
