Why is this a good deal?

If you've been shopping around for good walking shoes, we don't have to tell you that the prices can be shockingly high — as much as $150 to $200. Even at their regular price, Doussprt Women's Slip-On Walking Shoes are affordable. But give them an over 50% discount and you've got a true bargain. Just note that prices vary by color and size, and some sale prices may be reserved for Prime members.

Why do I need this?

Bona fide foot doctors give these sneakers the thumbs-up. "Stability, or support, is probably the most important quality of a sneaker or any other shoe that someone will wear if they are to be on their feet for more than a few minutes at a time," said Richard H. Graves, DPM, of Sol Foot & Ankle Centers in Longwood, California. And these sneakers have support in spades.

With a knit upper, these walking shoes are slip-ons, which means no fumbling with shoelaces or Velcro straps. To keep the bottoms of your feet comfortable, they have wide toe boxes, solid rubber soles and air cushions.

What reviewers say

Fans rave about these kicks' comfort and stability. One impressed shopper said that after they slipped the sneakers on, they felt like they were "walking on air."

Another happy customer wrote: "Wow, wow, wow, these shoes are amazing. They are slip-resistant. I tried to get them to slide on the floor at work and they would not budge. My feet were so happy today."

"Happy feet!" one shopper exclaimed. "Love, love, love these shoes. I purchased these shoes for work. I walk on cement 8 hours a day. These shoes are comfy and supportive. They give me a little height. ... No rubbing, no blisters, no laces, just a perfect fit. Order these; you will not be disappointed!"

"I saw these on a waitstaff person when eating out," shared a rave reviewer. "I asked her about them and she said how much she loved them and wrote down the information to order on Amazon. I was excited when my order arrived. Sure enough, these are like putting on slippers. The size is a normal fit for me so I'm not sure about other reviews that said they run small. I will not be working out in them since they are not snug enough to be on a treadmill or to run in, but I could walk in these all day!"

One wearer did note that "The only downside is that since they're quite like socks, if you were thrown off your balance (like walking with my large rescue dog who makes sudden movements), you kind of lose your footing. Not in a trip or slip kind of way, but I mean your foot bends because it technically is not supported by any thick material around the ankle." However, they gave the shoes five stars, saying they're "excellent for my hour-long walks with my large dog; the arch support is phenomenal for my elaborate arch from years of ballet, and the shoes are very breathable. I never feel like my feet are sweating."

These elastic-cuff sneakers come in 18 colors.
