Two things that go together like peanut butter and jelly: Prime Day shoe deals and podiatrist recommendations. Okay, maybe it doesn’t quite roll off the tongue the same way, but you get where we’re going.
Amazon’s discounts on comfort brands like Ecco, New Balance and more are deep and enticing. But if you have tricky feet, not all new shoes are created equal. To help you make the perfect picks—before they sell out—we asked New York City-based podiatrist Dr. Polina Zaydenberg to sift through the sales and ID the best of the best.
“If you’re on your feet all day, it’s important to prioritize both comfort and support,” she says. “Look for shoes with wide toeboxes, arch support and shock absorption. Try and go for leather and organic materials, not man-made or synthetics. You want your foot to breathe.”
In need of new sneakers? Some flats? A good pair of boots for winter? Scroll for the doctor’s favorite supportive and accommodative finds — and see what she’s picking up from the sales herself.
This comfortable bootie sports a rubber sole and all-leather exterior, and they’re designed specifically for cold weather.
“The toebox is accommodative, wide and appears bendable. I like that the insole is wool — that’s a breathable material.”
Whether you’re a runner, jogger, or just like a stroll, these sneakers are a must for any collection. They’re available in six stylish shades, and they’re a ridiculous 61 percent off.
“These look like they’re accommodative if you’re running on uneven terrain,” Dr. Zaydenberg explains. “The different density foam helps balance overpronation.”
Made of a full-grain leather, nubuck and suede, these gorgeous sneakers are breathable and buttery-soft.
“They’re accommodative for those with swelling, pain in the ball of the foot, arthritis, and ankle derangements,” Dr. Zaydenberg advised.
Dr. Zaydenberg is far from the only fan of these New Balance walking shoes. They boast over 1,100 five-star reviews, with shoppers praising how comfortable these fabric sneakers are.
“I've said it before and I'll say it again!” one wrote. “Not much on fancy, but this is the most comfortable shoe I have ever had for either walking, jogging or standing for long periods of time! Absolutely amazing construction!”
These lightweight sneakers are a must in any wardrobe. Dr. Zaydenberg is a fan of the breathable mesh, as well as the shock-absorbing sole.
“The no-sew overlays might help prevent blisters,” she adds. “Plus the rubber outsole provides traction, which will help keep you from slipping as you walk or run.”
The style is available in seven shades, though the podiatrist is particularly fond of the taupe colorway above.
