Not all footwear is created equal, but if you’re looking to upgrade your shoes, you’re in luck! We’ve spotted a pair of kicks worth adding to your collection — the STQ Slip On Mesh Walking Shoes. And right now, you can get them for up to 57% off on Amazon (prices vary by size and color).
The STQ Slip On Mesh Walking Shoes, Amazon’s #1 Best Selling Walking Shoe, have over 39,800 five-star reviews, and when evaluating the features, a podiatrist even said they align with the kind of things you should to search in a pair of trainers. Not to mention, they’re also heavily discounted right now.
According to Dr. Suzanne Levine, founder of Millennium Podiatry in New York, walking puts 2.5 times the body’s weight on the foot, compared to 3 to 5 times for running. Basically, more speed equals more pressure. When buying trainers for your walks, look for stability to avoid over-pronation (which occurs when the arch of the foot falls too far down or in), a sturdy heel, lightweight construction, plenty of cushioning and a roomy toe box .
In addition to all these features, the STQ Slip On Mesh Walking Shoes also include a thick sole with air cushioning that helps absorb shock and stretch to help the foot fit perfectly. Dr. Levine notes that an upper that fits your foot is essential—you shouldn’t spend extra time breaking in a shoe before everyday wear.
“Take into account the specific biomechanics of your foot,” Dr. Levine told Yahoo Life. “More cushioning on the ball of the foot means good arch support.”
A buyer who suffers from foot pain says they are perfect for everyday use. “It’s by far the most comfortable ‘walking’ shoe I’ve ever found,” he gushes. “I have bone spurs and arthritis in one heel, and the air cushion is perfect for that. No pain since I started wearing these shoes. Plus, they’re super cute.”
“A teacher’s BFF,” says a hard-working shaper of young minds. “I’m on my feet all day as a teacher. I’ve struggled to find a pair of shoes that provide support and comfort. These were lifesavers!!! I might just get them in every color!”
One Amazon buyer called these shoes “perfect,” which is pretty acceptable. “I’m on my feet all day as an occupational therapy student,” they continued. “One of my classmates introduced me to the shoes and I’ve been in love with them ever since. So comfortable and so supportive.”
Another satisfied customer, who has a pair in two different colors, praised the walkers for helping with their arthritis: “I have a high bunion on one foot and I can fit my foot in these shoes. They are by far the most comfortable Walking Shoes I’ve ever found. I have lumbar spurs and arthritis in one heel, and the air cushion is perfect for that. I haven’t had any pain since I started wearing these shoes. Plus, they’re so cute.”
