Adidas Cloudfoam Pure running shoes that'll make you feel like you're truly walking on a cloud
Former BuzzFeed editor Marquaysa Battle is *all* about these sneakers:

"I own a black pair of these and they're seriously one of the comfiest friggin' sneakers I've ever worn (the other is a pair of New Balance) in my 29 years of life. The 'Cloudfoam' insole really does make it feel like your feet are walking on clouds. I thought that feeling might go away after several months of wear but the sneakers remain fluffy and relaxing. The sneakers were so comfortable that I started wearing them to the gym, to work, and even matching them with cute dresses for going-out looks. You'll probably want to order two pairs of these babies so you don't wear out a single pair after you fall in love. I bought my mom a pair as well."
Brooks Ghost 13 sneakers ideal for both running and walking
BuzzFeed Editor Heather Braga has and loves these! Here's why:

"These are the most recent addition to my outdoor running/walking sneaker collection. I really like the cushioning in these babies and how shock absorbent the base of the shoe is. The bottoms are a bit rigid, so they make me feel a lot more sturdy when walking on wet ground. I didn't even need a break-in period! They were comfortable from the first time I laced up."

They are available in sizes 4.5–13, narrow and wide widths, and 26 styles). Find the men's version here.

Strappy pumps for anyone looking for a little extra height and style without sacrificing comfort
Promising review: "These shoes are some of the most comfortable heels I have ever purchased. I have heels that I paid over $100 for, but they aren't near as comfortable as these LifeStrides. I've worn these shoes several times to events or out to dinner, but today I wore them to work for 8 hours. I walk quite a bit at work, but these heels did not hurt my feet. I usually get pain in the balls of my feet, but these have just the right amount of cushion." —Joni R. Harris

Promising review: "Best Travel Shoe EVER! I have traveled in these shoes all over Japan and England, and I couldn't be more delighted. Logged 12 miles in one day, walking London, without a blister or toe out of place. I love their versatility — they are nice enough to wear for business — particularly if you are on your feet a lot. They also look super cute with jeans or a sundress. I love Dansko shoes and these have not disappointed. Truly held up over time, and continue to cradle my feet, today!" —Sara E. Guterbock

Promising review: "I normally don't like wearing tennis shoes all day because my feet tend to sweat in them, then swell when I take them off. These are the best brand of tennis shoes I have ever owned. They feel wonderful on my arthritic feet, and my feet breathe in them all day, so they never sweat and don't swell up when I take them off. I bought a second pair in white. Well worth the money. All my other tennis shoes are going to Goodwill." —SBoo

Promising review: "If you'd like to add 3 inches to your height without the dangers of toppling over, you've got to try these platform sandals! They're absurdly comfortable, soft, lightweight, and breathable. I've walked miles in these. The open strap design visually elongates the length of the leg. Also, there are lots of colors to choose from, and you will! I've got three and counting." —CC Mac

Promising review: "I love this pair of athletic shoes. I bought another one recently (same style, different color pattern). These Gel Venture 5 are extremely comfortable. They keep me going when I am walking each of my dogs. I do at least 5.5 miles per day between the two pups. The support in these shoes keep me going at a brisk pace so that I can keep up with my dogs. If you do a lot of walking or will be on your feet all day, these shoes are perfect!" —Stevie Wilson

Some fashion-forward, lightweight knitted sneaks with a futuristic-looking rubber blade sole
Promising review: "Ok, I gotta say, I love these shoes. I'm a retail worker and I am on my feet eight to nine hours a day. I'm a personal shopper so my job requires me to walk several miles a day. I am very picky about shoes. I need something very comfortable with good support or else I am in severe pain after my shift. I noticed several of my coworkers wearing these, and I was curious, so I got a pair. I was NOT expecting to like these so much! My tried and true preferred work shoe has been Crocs. For years that was all I could wear to work and be comfortable. These shoes though, are actually better for me.

They are surprisingly comfortable and supportive for my flat feet, and I love the memory foam soles. I am not in pain anymore thanks to these guys. I've only been wearing them for about two weeks now but I'm already noticing a remarkable difference. They also look pretty cool and I love the colors. I actually get a lot of compliments on them, and people ask me where I got them. Anyway, yeah, if you need a comfy shoe, get these! I want other colors now." —Hannah

Cute faux-leather pumps that are way more comfortable and supportive than any heels you've ever known
Promising review: "Love love these shoes. They look gorgeous and are the most comfortable heels I have ever worn. I had stopped wearing heels to work, choosing comfort over style — now I can have both. To be able to walk in these all day and not have to worry about my feet hurting by the end of the day is a blessing. I loved these shoes so much I purchased several different colors. Buy them, you won’t be sorry!" —eknife

They're available in women's sizes 5–11, wide sizes, and in five colors.
Skechers Go Walk boat shoes made with lightweight, responsive cushioning
Promising review: "My second pair of this style. I wore my last pair in several countries, over many years, lots of walking/light-mod hiking, and they held up great. But it was definitely time to replace them. They fit me perfectly, and when worn with no-show socks, I can walk for miles in them. Cute with shorts, jeans, or casual skirts/dresses." —cheddo

Promising review: "I have bad feet — flat arches and a congenital bone defect. My feet tend to always hurt with much walking unless I'm wearing running shoes or hiking boots. I decided to try these for a couple of days of walking on a trip to Boston recently and they were great! It was 94 degrees, but my feet did not overheat (I wore no-see socks with them). Most importantly, I also didn't get my usual arch/foot pain. Less importantly, they are super cute and can be worn with a skirt, shorts, pants, etc. I definitely recommend giving them a try." —Heather B Schmitz

They're available in women's sizes 5–12 and in 27 styles.
Classic Keds Champion canvas sneakers that look nice with borderline anything
Promising review: "Easily the most comfortable shoes I own. I can stand and walk in these all day and my feet never hurt. Don't take that lightly because my feet ALWAYS hurt, even since I was a kid. I wear my expensive Brooks sneakers all day and my feet hurt. I have so many different types of shoes and my feet always end up hurting after a few hours. But not in these Keds. I hope Keds never stops making these classics!" —Emily

A TIOSEBON athletic walking shoe specifically designed to keep your feet happy while walkin' around
If you have wide feet, reviewers recommend sizing up a half size.

Promising review: "During COVID-19, I've been lucky enough to have outdoor space to walk in while still keeping distance from others (wearing a mask, of course)! My old sneakers had worn out and since my feet are wide, and my budget is narrow, I needed a well-made walking shoe that fit both. After some online research, I saw these highly rated Tiosebon shoes and ordered them. I've walked about 10 miles total since they arrived last week and they are wonderful. There is absolutely no 'new shoe' rubbing or blisters, and they are super-light and well cushioned. They are also well ventilated so there's no sweatiness. Highly recommended!!" —Knickers62

They're available in women's sizes 5–13 and in 33 colors.
Steve Madden sandals that somehow manage to be comfy to walk in despite having no arch support
Promising review: "I love these sandals! Steve Madden is always a guarantee which is why I have been a loyal customer for the past 15 years! I recently bought these sandals for my honeymoon in the Riviera Maya. Didn't even bother to break them in before hand. I can honestly say they are very COMFORTABLE! I walked around everywhere and although they have no arch support, my feet didn't hurt at all. No blisters either. Highly recommend! Will continue to be a loyal customer of Steve Madden." —Vania

They're available in women's sizes 5–11 and 11 colors.
Or some durable Steve Madden studded flats here to serve you well in both the fashion *and* function departments. These are comfy to walk around in and will upgrade any outfit you pair them with!

Lightweight and breathable sneakers
Promising review: "I cannot emphasize how much I love these shoes. Would I wear these shoes to work out? No. But I can walk for miles in these things, it is like walking on air. They are so light and so comfortable, and they look interesting and people comment on them often. I have worn them very frequently since I got them three months ago and there is almost no wear to be seen. So, they are pretty hardy for the price they're at. Considering I've owned expensive Nikes, I'd go with these over my previous shoes. They are so similar in make and feel to the Nikes I've owned, but a much better price — and as a minimalist I enjoy that there is no visible branding!" —Samantha M.

They're available in women's sizes 5–11 and in 42 colors.
A pair of pumps loved by reviewers who usually *hate* wearing heals
Promising review: "I am not a big heels person — I work a professional job and attend a lot of meetings and do a lot of walking. I typically stick to flats or shorter heels when absolutely necessary. I love the way heels look, but never seem to find them comfortable enough to endure all day. I ordered these LifeStride Parigi pumps and several other heels at the same time, but these were the CLEAR winner. They are so comfortable!!! I only really intended to wear them for one occasion, but they are so comfortable and stylish that I've worn them several days already." —Erin D.

They're available in women's sizes 5-12, narrow, wide, and extra-wide sizes, and 22 colors.
