If your lifestyle or job requires you to be on your feet all day, you know the importance of having the right shoes. Sure, there’s no shortage of sneakers advertising stellar support and impressive shock absorption — but how many of those actually deliver? Lucky for your overworked tootsies, the Yhoon Women's Walking Shoesperform as advertised — and they're on sale starting at $32, down from $60.
These comfortable, breathable shoes slip on like socks. With an air cushion sole, they're great for people who walk a lot and need good shock absorption.
Theydo the work of expensive designer sneakers at a fraction of the price. Many of the 9,200 five-star Amazon reviewers — including nurses, teachers and essential workers — report they feel like they’re walking on air.
The sock-like kicks are made of lightweight woven fabric and are stretchy enough to be slipped on and off without having to fiddle around with laces. Yhoon’s incredible walking shoes have garnered thousands of reviews from shoppers who walk a lot. Here’s what they had to say.
Praise from the medical community
The cushioned construction has earned praise from a nursing student who wrote, “These shoes are the best sneakers I have ever worn! I started out nursing school wearing clogs...and my feet would kill me after wearing them for just three hours. I bought these because it said they were super-cushioned and make your feet feel supported and they definitely do just that. Best purchase I have made for nursing school.”
“I’m a nurse. I bought them for work for good support,” wrote another. “I love these shoes... Not one shift has gone by where I haven’t been complimented on them either...great price, great support.”
Doctors love the Yhoon walking shoes, too. Board-certified podiatrist Dr. Polina Zaydenberg says the sole offers excellent shock absorption. “The platform is great for heel pain and metatarsalgia [pain in the ball of the foot],” she shares with Yahoo Life.
Dr. Zaydenberg also raves about the accommodative toe box — a must if you have bunions and hammertoes.
And they’re super cute! The 15 available colors include black, gray, navy blue and purple.
“I am an essential worker and often pick up shifts in my hospital's emergency dept. So needless to say I am on my feet quite a lot,” wrote an appreciative wearer. “The comfort of the shoe is ridiculous and so easy to slip on/off.”
“Love love. Great for my job as an elementary teacher. My feet feel great by the end of the day. Must buy,” added another.
Great walking shoe
Spending so much time at home makes taking a daily stroll almost a necessity — and these sneakers are just the ticket.
“Loved these shoes. Bought them for eight hours of walking around NYC. I have wide feet and healing from herniated L4 and L5. Absolutely no foot, back or leg discomfort at all,” wrote one thrilled shopper.
Light as air
Despite the chunky, supportive sole, these walking shoes are incredibly lightweight — you’ll feel like you’re walking through clouds!
“Goodness gracious. I finally found shoes that I can wear all day and not hurt my feet,” wrote a relieved shopper. “I have bunions and it makes it soo hard to find shoes that don’t hurt. I work at a hospital and have to walk a lot, up and down stairs all day long...[Yhoon] literally feels like walking on air. I was clicking my heels and skipping down the hallway at the hospital showing my friends my new slides.”
“In my job, there are no breaks. I stand for hours and everyone asks why is it that I am never tired,” said a happy reviewer. “I have had other good working, standing, walking shoes. None compare to this.”
Perhaps beavers need holidays too, from all that dam maintenance — especially on Canada Day. Officials say a major washout on the Alaska Highway in B.C. over the holiday weekend was caused by a broken beaver dam that sent a torrent of water through the area, sweeping away a section of the highway in northern B.C. and causing major disruptions for travellers and truckers before a detour opened to traffic on Monday. "There was, you know, quite a bit of water there," said George Smith, a manager wi
OTTAWA — Canada is about to toss more than half of its doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine because it couldn't find any takers for it either in or outside of Canada. A statement from Health Canada says 13.6 million doses of the vaccine expired in the spring and will be thrown out. A year ago Canada said it would donate almost 18 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to lower-income countries. As of June 22, almost nine million doses were delivered to 21 different nations. But Hea
Summer camp season has begun — but with inflation at record highs, summertime child care has become an extraordinary expense for families already overextended by a higher cost of living. Anneliese Lawton, a mother of three from Burlington, Ont., said that the gymnastics summer camp that her children normally attend isn't a financially viable option this year as their budget is stretched by inflation. The camp she had planned to send her two sons to costs $300 a week for each camper, a price she
People in the Hay River, N.W.T., area are still recovering from damages caused by the unprecedented spring flood. "It's going to be a lifelong impact," said Paradise Valley resident Bhreagh Ingarfield. Last week, the territory's Department of Municipal and Community Affairs (MACA) announced its assistance plan for flood recovery. Residents can submit eligible claims for reimbursement through the N.W.T. 's updated Disaster Assistance Policy. For residents of Paradise Valley — a small agricultural
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters have said no to him twice over the past four years. But Kris Kobach is nonetheless betting that this can be the year he makes a political comeback. His losses, including a 2018 defeat that handed the governor's office in this Republican-leaning state to a Democrat, might end other political careers. But Kobach, who built a national reputation as an immigration hard-liner while Kansas secretary of state, is now aiming for the state attorney general's office. He f
An Ontario lawyer in the eye of a $1-million libel suit launched by an anti-vaccine nursing group says vexatious lawsuits are increasingly being used as tools by special interest groups looking to silence critics when it comes to medical misinformation. Paul Champ, a human rights and labour lawyer based in Ottawa, spoke to CBC News about the lawsuit filed last fall by three Ontario nurses. Kristen Nagle, of London, Kristal Pitter of Tillsonburg and Sarah Choujounian of Toronto have been investig
The Assembly of First Nations is meeting in Vancouver this week, but what is meant to be the time to take care of important business is now being marred by infighting surrounding its national chief. Delegates voted to end the temporary suspension of RoseAnne Archibald late this afternoon, but the chief's fight isn't over yet. Neetu Garcha explains.

Footage has emerged showing the chaotic scene during and after a gunman fired on an Independence Day parade from a rooftop in suburban Chicago, spraying the crowd with gunshots initially mistaken for fireworks, killing at least six people. (July 5)
CANAZEI, Italy (AP) — Rescuers found body parts and equipment as they searched Tuesday for hikers missing following a powerful avalanche that killed at least seven people and was blamed in large part on rising temperatures that are melting glaciers. Officials initially feared 13 hikers were still missing after a huge chunk of the Marmolada glacier cleaved off Sunday in northern Italy. But the province of Trento on Tuesday reduced the number of people unaccounted-for to five, all of them Italian,
The deadly Fourth of July shooting rampage outside Chicago has some in the suburb of Highland Park contemplating whether to leave the United States. Locals cheered as prosecutors levelled seven charges of first-degree murder against the alleged perpetrator.
The family of a seven-year-old Regina boy who was slammed by a truck says his health has improved enough that he's been moved out of the intensive care unit. Benjamin Dufour was sent to the pediatric intensive care unit at Jim Pattison Children's Hospital in late June after he was hit by the truck. His family says he had been waiting by a bus stop with his older brother and schoolmates when the accident happened. In a statement on Tuesday, his family said he's been moved out of the intensive car
HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. — Residents cheered and applauded prosecutors and police Tuesday as the alleged perpetrator of a deadly Fourth of July shooting rampage in a Chicago suburb was charged with seven counts of first-degree murder. The accused gunman, 21-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, faces the prospect of life in prison with no chance of parole, as well as "dozens" more likely charges, said Lake County state's attorney Eric Rinehart. Another round of whoops and cheers went up as Rinehart told a ne
