The 9 Best Amazon Prime Day Deals On Comfortable Shoes
A good pair of shoes can make or break not only your outfit but your entire day. After all, painful or ill-fitting footwear has the potential to cause blisters, arch pain, or even hip and back discomfort. But one thing I value as much as making sure my shoes are comfy? Finding a good deal.
As a result, Amazon Prime Day is one of my most anticipated sales of the year. The two-day shopping event is the perfect chance to snag shoes from top brands—like Under Armour, Adidas, and New Balance—for a major discount. In fact, some of the best comfy shoe deals will save you up to 50%. Talk about a steal!
Picking a comfortable shoe.
Knowing what to look for in a comfortable shoe is essential when it comes to hopping on the best deals quickly, and after collaborating with a number of podiatrists over the last several months, I have a fairly good idea of what to keep an eye on. "Shoes with a stiff forefoot that minimizes the bend at the ball of the foot is a very important characteristic to minimize long-term wear and tear," podiatrist Michael Galoyan, DPM, previously told mbg.
On a broader scale, "You want to look for a lightweight, low-drop heel height, breathable materials, wide toe box stable shoe that has a flex point where your toes bend," added restorative physician and podiatrist Sherri Greene, DPM. So which deals am I shopping on Prime Day? Below I'm breaking down the best comfortable shoe deals of Prime Day 2022 so you can get a jump on revamping your footwear options without sacrificing support.
