Here at HuffPost, our quest for comfortable shoes of every conceivable stripe is never-ending. We’re hot on the trail of affordable sneakers, waterproof walking shoes and footwear that makes strolling more comfortable for older adults.
Internet chatter recently led us to a particular pair of knit slip-on sneakers available in three wear-with-everything colorways and equipped with a bold white sole that gives it an elevated feel. Not only that, they are on sale for almost 50% off, marked down from $34.99 to a mere $18.
Even more compelling is the shoe’s striking resemblance to a popular-but-pricy pair from Rothy’s, the startup sneaker imprint that helped pioneer the type of easy-clean knitted flat that’s taken the professional world by storm in the past five-ish years.
Nearly 400 reviewers gave the shoe high marks for comfort and style, awarding it a rating that exceeded four stars.
Thanks to the padded ankle collar and cushioned foot bed, it appears that these slip-ons offers a foot-friendly construction along with a streamlined silhouette that’s winning shoppers’ approval.
Old Navy used a blend of recycled polyester for the fabric upper and recycled thermoplastic rubber for the cushy outsole, making these a lower-impact choice than a shoe made with exclusively “virgin” plastic materials.
We rounded up some of the most insightful reviews from Old Navy customers, which you can review below — or you can go ahead pick up a pair for yourself before the rest of the internet gets wind of this unmissable deal.

“These shoes were exactly what I was looking for. High quality material, flexible and comfy but still hold their shape, and then have a crisp look to them. I wanted a sneaker that I could wear to work and still look professional, but also wear them day to day. These are it!” — anonymous
