When shopping online for shoes, whether it’s for dressy work shoes or the best shoes to travel in, there’s one key factor that’s always at the top of my mind: comfort. With so many options to choose from, gone are the days when women had to wear uncomfortable or blister-inducing shoes—it’s time to bring back the stylish comfortable shoe for good!

Luckily for Memorial Day weekend, you can shop tons of comfortable shoes on Zappos for up to 50 percent off until May 27. What’s great about Zappos is that the site lets you search based on your foot type—so whether you have wide or narrow feet, it’s still easy to find the best shoe for you. Top footwear brands like Clarks, Vionic, and Naturalizer are all known to have some of the most innovative shoes that provide ultimate support and comfort—but you may be surprised to hear that the top five best-selling comfortable shoes on Zappos aren’t actually from those brands. Instead, they come from some traditional shoe brands like Converse, Vans, and Lucky Brand.

Some of the most comfortable options we’ve found on Zappos have more than 2,000 five-star reviews each, and for good reason—these shoes are all highly-ranked for both comfort and style. The shoe styles that customers have been shopping the most (and reviewing as the best) are go-to options that deserve a place in every closet, including classic ballet flats, versatile slip-ons, and functional-yet-chic sandals. Plus, if you’re currently loving stylish white sneakers for the spring and summer months, you’ll find some of those on the list—even the ones Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing. See why customers ranked these picks, below, as the most comfortable shoes on Zappos—and get to shopping before the sale ends!


Vans Classic Slip-On

No laces, no problem! These classic slip-ons have more than 2,500 five-star reviews because people not only love how comfortable they are, but also how easy they are to wear. They’re great shoes for traveling, too, because you can easy slip them on and off while going through TSA checkpoints in the airport. With a padded collar and footbed, these shoes provide both supreme comfort and shock absorption. And with a cotton lining, they’ll let your feet breathe and stay cool even on the hottest of days. Bonus: They’re super stylish.

Superga 2750 COTU Classic Sneaker

Even royalty loves these sneakers! As one of Kate Middleton’s favorite casual shoes, the canvas Superga Sneaker look super chic in the all-white shade, but there’s plenty of other colorways available if you hate cleaning white shoes. Customers love this particular sneaker because it’s machine washable and the cushioned footbed makes it a comfy shoe you can wear all day. The people have spoken, and this pair is “better than Keds.”

Lucky Brand Emmie Flats

These flats are about to become that go-to shoe you always keep at your desk as that “just-in-case” pair. If you have a hard time finding ballet flats that actually fit, then these are exactly what you need—they have an elasticized top lining to hug your foot, and customers have rated this pair as one of the best when it comes to fit. They also feature a slightly-padded insole for comfort and are available in tons of colors.

Birkenstock Arizona Stones

In the summer, many of us have that go-to pair of sandals for everyday wear that almost get completely worn down by the end of the season. But when you upgrade to this durable pair of Birkenstocks, the heel will last for many seasons to come. Since other Birkenstock styles have more than 2,500 five-star reviews (like the Mayari sandals), it’s safe to say you’ll love this pair too since they are known to be lightweight, will conform to the shape of your foot after a little bit of wear, and are great for trips that include a lot of walking. Plus, if you hate the look of flip flops, these offer an upgraded style to the traditional summer sandal.

To buy: $90 (was $100);


Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Lift Slip

Whether you opt for these trendy Converse slip-ons in pink or blue, they’re a great shoe for all seasons. The slip-on is different than Converse’s classic Chuck Taylor shoe, but that’s why customers love this specific style—it’s so easy to put on, and you don’t have to worry about laces coming untied.
