Nothing but respect for people who can function in shoes that aren’t comfy — that’s a superpower you could probably use to take over the world, is you ask me. For the record, I am not someone who can function well if my shoes don’t feel good on my feet. I can last maybe 90 minutes tops in a pair of shoes that pinch. Fortunately, there are plenty of options out there for people like me who agree that comfy shoes are necessary. In fact, compiled right here into this list are shoes that are not only super comfortable, but that can also be worn with anything — and the best part? They cost less than $35.

These are the shoes that will be your new wardrobe staples, your go-to’s for work days, weekend mornings, and even evenings out. Classic ballet flats or updated silhouettes with unique details? Yep. What about slip-on sandals that’ll take you from the beach to the boardwalk to the bar? Got ‘em. Pointy-toed slip-ons, sporty sneakers, and my new favorite faux leather loafers? They’re all here.
