We like looking stylish as much as the next person (more about that later), but comfortable sneakers aren't just a "want" these days — they're a downright necessity. Whether you're commuting, heading to the gym or running errands, your feet are putting in lots of miles. And while we can easily identify the need for a good pair of sneakers, it's often difficult to find ones that fit right, provide adequate support and won't break the bank (especially if you're replacing them every six months or every 500 miles, as recommended by experts.) The solution: These Avia Women's Slip On Sneakers, which can be yours for a mere $20 at Walmart.
They're not kidding about these being "slip-on" — this sock-like style is about to become your new go-to. The tie-free design makes them a cinch to pull on with one hand when your morning coffee and purse are in the other. Plus, the all-knit construction is super comfortable, with no pinching or too-tight laces — it also allows your feet to breathe and expand when warmer weather rolls around. The lightweight outsole and plush foam liner provide that cloud-like lift to each step. But don't let their easy-peasy comfy-ness fool you. The Avia sneakers are great for long, long walks or your most intense gym session, thanks to their cushy insole and added arch support.
If this all sounds like the total package, well, it is. “Excellent walking shoes need to be supportive, lightweight, and good for your specific foot type,” Dana Canuso, M.D. a podiatrist in New Jersey told Yahoo Life. “My most recommended walking shoe is one with a moderate amount of stability, a supportive arch, and lots of cushion.”
And how great is it that these Avias are stylish to boot?! The killer kicks are currently available in two color schemes: black and navy. Fair warning: Customers mentioned they have a pretty roomy fit, so you may want to order them in a half or even full size smaller than your usual.
And get a load of the reviews. More than 1,000 customers gave the kicks five stars. Said one: "Honestly I bought these in a pinch the day before I got a new job; figured they'd work for a couple of weeks till I got my first check. It's been four months and these are actually super comfortable and have held up great. I'm on my feet all day at work and my feet don't hurt. Definitely worth a shot!"
I started searching for slip-on sneakers, and I must not have shopped for a while, because the cost of sneakers is jaw-dropping. Tried these and just ordered a second pair," wrote another happy customer. "They are comfortable for my high-arched, wedge-shaped feet, and the stretch accommodates my little toe which inevitably pokes out of sandals and rubs on shoes. I like the snug feel around the ankle so I don't get blistered. IMO a winner of a shoe with airflow for summer.
This thrilled shopper summed it up best: "I love everything about these shoes. I love them so much that I have purchased six pairs of them. I love the comfort they give. I love the no strings. And they fit perfectly. No complaints from me. 100% satisfied!"
