Even the cutest shoes are not fun to wear if they're not comfortable. Whether you have a day packed with errands, are on a trip and want to catch all the sights, work on your feet, or are just taking a short jaunt from the car to the store, you want your feet to be supported and blister-free. Plus, who wants to spend a lot if you don't have to? That's why the most comfortable shoes under $25 on Amazon are so essential.

While what's comfortable varies depending on the person and situation, there are a few key things to look for: Most importantly, you'll want a pair with cushioning, great for reducing pain for people with low, medium, and high arches. You'll also want a pair made with breathable materials like mesh or cotton. Adjustable straps or laces and grippy traction are also nice to have.

These comfortable shoes run the gamut from ballet flats with arch support to flip flops with plenty of cushioning to more classically comfortable shoes like sneakers. There are even some actually-comfortable heels that one Amazon customer claimed “deserves 10 stars.”

So no matter what the situation, grab a pair or two of the 24 most comfortable shoes for under $25 on Amazon — and know you'll be walking into any room in comfort.


A Cult-Favorite Sandal With A Comfy Sole

Thanks to their pillowy EVA foam, these ultra-popular slide sandals are a trendy pair your feet will actually like. On top of a soft, waterproof build, their insoles are deeply contoured with incredible arch support and stability, plus the buckled uppers are easy to adjust. There are 50 colorways to choose from, including both solids and prints, so there's plenty of variety to suit most outfits.

A helpful review: “Bought after trying on my friends'. [...] I have high arches, and the arch support was wonderful - it felt like good pressure into my arch, giving me some much needed relief after being barefoot so often. I narrow feet and had to use the last hole on the buckle, so if you have wide feet, it won't be a problem as there are lots of holes to give space. [...] I wear one inside and one outside - the benefit of this affordable price means buying two isn't a problem. I've gotten the black ones wet, walked through a river and creek, no issues.”

These Trendy & Best-Selling Cloud Slides

Cloud slides are trending right now, and it’s not hard to see why — they truly make every step feel like you’re walking on a soft, cushy cloud, thanks to their thick EVA cushioning.

These Comfortable Clogs With The Softest Faux Fur Lining

The listing also includes options without the faux-fur lining, which might be a better choice for folks in warmer climates or for summer wear.

A helpful review: “I use these shoes in the house for slippers that I could also step outside in and not ruin; but you could wear them out. They are comfy, warm, and provide superior support.”

Sizes: 4-5 — 12-13 | Colors: 19

A helpful review: “I love these! I live in Florida and am always searching for cute, comfortable sandals. These are versatile, comfy, and light and I get tons of compliments whenever I wear them.

A must purchase!”

Sizes: 5 — 11 | Colors: 50+


A Pair Of Comfortable, Strappy Teva Flip-Flops

Flip-flops are often just a slab of rubber with some straps for the feet, but not these Teva sandals. Made of cushioned EVA foam that has been contoured to better support feet, there are also added straps so that these stay on your feet more securely. While they're more comfortable than most flip-flops, they're still safe to take into the water.

A helpful review: “These are the third pair I have purchased because of the amazing comfort, support and price. I buy a new pair every year because I basically live in these sandals. I still have last years pair and they are still holding up. [...] They also have many color choices from every day to dressy. You won’t find better sandals for all terrain, long lasting, comfort and support for the price.”

Sizes: 5 — 12 | Colors: 13


The Most Comfortable Loafers Made Of Genuine Leather

These Fan-Favorite Crocs Flip Flops

If you’re in the market for a pair of flip flops but want a comfy upgrade, you won’t do much better than these Crocs flip flops, featuring the brand’s signature supportive, shock-absorbing Croslite foam that molds to your foot, lightweight feel, and waterproof EVA construction. The outsoles are also grippy to prevent slipping on wet terrain, and the toe post is even designed with a super-soft material to prevent chafing. Like most Crocs styles, these flip flops have earned a cult following on Amazon, where shoppers have awarded them a 4.4-star average rating after over 31,000 ratings in total.

A helpful review: “This is my second pair. The last pair I wore just about every single day [...] I wore them so much and doing many different things on various terrain til they were so thin I thought they’d break at any moment but they held up! The straps stayed strong! I’ve had foamy type shoes before but the straps weren’t sturdy and easily ripped in two. These were very durable, and the most comfortable I have ever worn. I couldn’t wait to get a new pair, after I went 6 days without them! Not because they broke, but due to my leaving them behind.”

Sizes: 4 — 11 | Colors: 8


A Flexible Strappy Sandal In Bold Lipstick Red

For those who don't need a ton of arch support, consider these stylish elastic sandals wit a cult following, which have a lightly padded insole that’s more comfortable than your usual flat sandal. Meanwhile, the lightweight, strappy elastic uppers keep your foot firmly in place for stability. The bold lipstick red pictured above packs a stylistic punch, but you have a few neutrals to choose from, as well.

A helpful review: “I put these on yesterday evening and I haven’t wanted to take them off. Even fell asleep in them at some point. [...] [My feet] get swollen after walking a short time soft but durable elastic bands fix that. [...] and I already have med-high arches so addition ‘support’ usually just makes things less comfortable(these are flat; yay again!). These sandals solve all of those issues. Not just that, but the quality is really nice! The sole is a good quality lightly treaded polymer very well attached to the leather footbed. Stitching is structurally perfect.”

Sizes: 5.5 — 11 | Colors: 10


These Classic Adidas Slides For The Pool & Beyond

These adidas slides with that iconic three-stripe design are a classic for good reason. A molded EVA insole is layered over their proprietary foam-infused padding for ergonomic arch support, and there's also some built-in impact protection with the waterproof rubber sole. With more than 7,400 five-star ratings, it's a fan favorite on Amazon. This is a great choice for the pool, communal showers, and beyond.

A helpful review: “I needed slides to wear around the kitchen while I work, and these shoes have been perfect. They're super durable and I was surprised at the comfort. They're dense enough to provide arch support and almost feel like a massage when I walk. I haven't experienced them falling off when I walk, even up and down stairs. Totally recommend keeping a pair in the house or even to slip on for quick errands!”

Sizes: 5 — 14 | Colors: 14


Some Lightweight Mesh Sneakers For Workouts & More

Whether you want to wear these sneakers running, to the gym, on a hike, or just for a spin around the neighborhood, customers love the ultra-lightweight and breathable mesh construction, and the sleek, sporty look. Plus, the memory foam insole offers support and shock absorption, and the soft lining and padded collar prevents blisters from forming.

A helpful review: “I've tried dozens of sneakers from Oofos, OrthoFoot and Hooka to Sketchers, Brooks and Merrill. Nothing felt comfortable. UNTIL THESE!!! They fit the bill! They have great cushioning, just enough height in the heel. Plenty of room in the toe box and they provide a lot of stability for my poor tired ankles with the wide sole. I did replace the insole with my favorite insole from Dr. Sholl's for even more cushioning but its not necessary. These sneakers have quite a bit. [...] I highly recommend at least trying them!!

Sizes: 6 — 11 | Colors: 7


A Pair Of Elegant Ballet Flats With Elastic Straps

Like the ballet flats above, these are made of flexible, stretchy, breathable mesh designed to move with your foot (and keep some sweat at bay), but these also feature a pair of elastic straps across the mid-foot for extra security — so even if your foot is on the narrower side, you won’t need to worry about them slipping off. The lining is soft for even more comfort. With a pointed toe and selection of four chic patterns and colors, like the leopard print above, these add an elegant spin to any outfit.

A helpful review: “For my narrow feet here is how they've solved my usual problems. The heel curves slightly inward at the top hugging the top of your heel. The grip built inside the heel is comfortable and effective. The straps hug the middle of the flats against your arches comfortably, no bunching outward. Your toes will not slide into the front as you walk. There is wiggle room in my toe area and I still do not feel my toes jamming forward. I walked all day in these with no pain, only a little sweaty. I walked the next day all day with no show socks on, very comfortable and no sweat. These are absolutely perfect.”

Sizes: 6 — 11 | Colors: 4


These Edgy Platform Chelsea Boots

These platform Chelsea boots are the perfect marriage of style and function. Outfitted with a latex insole that’s cushioned and supportive, a tough TPR outsole that’s stable on uneven terrain, and a flexible faux-leather upper, they’re ideal for everyday wear. Meanwhile, that on-trend platform sole adds some edge to every outfit, from jeans to dresses.

A helpful review: “I am on my feet all night on a concrete floor. 10 hour shift, my feet are the biggest problem when it comes to comfort. I have spent so much money just to be comfortable. These gems are dirt cheap and so comfortable. Bit of a struggle to get my foot in bit worth the wriggle. I have high instep and a wide foot. I am so happy with these boots. No need to break in. Cannot recommend them enough.”

Sizes: 5 — 11 | Colors: 4


These Comfortable Slip-Ons In A Chic Faux-Leather Finish

A textural, faux snakeskin upper with a matte shine finish makes these slip-on sneakers feel a bit chicer than your usual sneaker, but they still bring the comfort thanks to a soft padded insole, anti-slip outsole, and an overall lightweight feel that’s just so easy to walk in. You have six more versions to choose from too, all in either black or white with different finishes that are guaranteed to go with everything.

A helpful review: “I work in retail and we are business/business casual and these are amazing. I spend 8-10 hours a day on my feet and have zero complaints! They pair well with both pants and dresses making them one of my go to pairs of shoes! Better yet they clean up well if you happen to scuff them or just need to clean them up.”

Sizes: 5 — 11 | Colors: 7


A Pair Of Timeless Pointed-Toe Loafers With Hidden Memory Foam

If you love the look of a stylish leather shoe but not the price, turn to these pointed-toe loafers from Amazon Essentials that’ve won over plenty of fashion fans. With a soft faux leather upper, seam detailing along the vamp, and elegant pointed toe, these look so much more expensive than they are — and with 6 millimeters of plush memory foam padding (on top of an additional layer of padding along the heel), customers have found these comfy and versatile. With a sweat-absorbing liner and a TPR sole for support, you can easily wear them day to night.

A helpful review: “After 7 months with these shoes, they still look almost new, even with frequent wear. They're probably my favorite shoes right now - they go with everything, and they are so comfortable. They've loosened/softened over time and now conform perfectly to my foot - definitely don't need to size up. They're still cushy and pleasant to walk and stand in, and I'm considering buying another pair because I love them so much. One of the best shoe purchases I've ever made.”

Sizes: 5 — 15 (available in wide) | Colors: 12


These Canvas Lace-Up Sneakers That Come In 29 Cute Colors

With a cushioning rubber sole and a breathable fabric top, these classic canvas sneakers are easy to wear and easy on the eyes.

At a price like this, you might want to grab a couple pairs.

A helpful review: “These sneakers are sooooo cute and comfortable! They are great for those times when you want to look cute, and you also want to be able to walk around all day without worrying about blisters. I HIGHLY recommend these sneakers and I would absolutely purchase them again.”

A Pair Of Stylish & Comfortable Flatform Espadrilles

Espadrilles always look chic with warm-weather outfits, and these flatform sandals are an extra-comfortable take on the classic style — the uniform, 1.25-inch platform and adjustable ankle strap makes them a great choice for those who'd like a little height but still want to feel stable and balanced. Available in more than 40 color combos, more than 15,000 customers have given this style a resounding five stars.

A helpful review: “The most perfect shoes I have ever owned. I’m writing this after a year of owning them and now coming back to officially buy more colors. [...] Definitely not a high heels person, my knees could never. But last year I wanted something cute for my engagement party, so I got these and they were the best! SO cute with everything— dresses, jeans, shorts. [...] I walked [...] about 7 miles [...] and they were SO comfy and so cute!! I genuinely can’t believe it and am buying them in white now.”

Sizes: 5.5 — 11 | Colors: 43


These Canvas Slip-Ons With Gel-Filled Insoles

These canvas slip-ons have earned a loyal following among shoppers, many of whom report that they’re more comfortable than similar, more expensive styles from name brands. That’s due in no small part to the gel-filled memory foam insoles, along with the flexible and breathable canvas upper. Even though this style leans casual, it’s still a more polished alternative to sneakers.

A helpful review: “I bought these for the price and didn't have very high expectations. Boy, was I ever wrong! For some reason, the fact that they have gel insoles didn't register until they arrived. That makes all the difference. I wear these ALL the time, and they've pretty much replaced all my other casual shoes. [...] Having worked all my life at jobs that required being on my feet all day, my feet have pretty much given out. Comfortable shoes with good support are a gift. Theses shoes just keep on giving. [...] They've lasted well over a year, they still look good after brushing them off, and they offer support that simply doesn't exist in other shoes of comparable price. Will definitely be buying more.”

Sizes: 5.5 — 11 | Colors: 10


A Pair Of Sweet & Comfy Mary Jane Wedges

These cute Mary Jane shoes come with a 2.5-inch wedge over a thick, sturdy sole for shock absorption and comfort. The wedge feels more stable underfoot than most heels, and the strap ensures they’ll stay snugly on your foot. Reviewers report that they’re comfortable enough for standing in over long periods of time, and even dancing the night away at weddings.

A helpful review: “Really like this shoe!!! First time that I wore them they were so comfortable. I was able to wear them for a good 6 or 7 hours at work with no discomfort. Usually I have to break in a pair of new shoes but these were so comfortable. They also have kind of a soft bottom to them so when I was walking at work there wasn’t that click click click sound that you usually hear with heels. [...] The colors are true to the pictures as well.”

Sizes: 5 — 10 | Colors: 6


A Fun Pair Of Jelly Shoes That Are Surprisingly Comfy

Customers have been shocked by how comfortable these festive glitter jelly flats are. Coming in over a dozen ice cream pastels and metallics, the netting-like look keeps feet airy and dry, while the bendy PVC sole moves with your foot. Because they're waterproof, they could even work as an alternative to standard sandals at the pool or beach.

A helpful review: “As a child of the 90s, I was THRILLED to finally own slip-on jellies...Purchased these to wear on a rock beach during a vow renewal. I liked that the glitter made them feel a bit more special, but the low price and durable rubber meant they were safe for wearing.”

Sizes: 5.5 — 10 | Colors: 13
