If you’re anything like Ree Drummond, then you’re a big fan of comfortable shoes, whether they’re wedge espadrilles or laid-back cowboy boots. Of course, Ree’s go-to footwear for everyday activities on the ranch is always sneakers. Wondering about her go-to walking shoes? Look no further than this list, which includes Ree’s all-time favorite sneakers: a colorful, slip-on pair that’s equal parts fun and functional! (And did we mention they come in four more cool colors?) There are plenty more great options where they came from, too.
Our collection of the best walking shoes for women features picks with arch support, cushioning, and shock absorption, for guaranteed all-day comfort. Some of these comfortable sneakers for women make great running shoes, too, so you can slip them on whether you’re running a mile or just running errands.
We’ve got more tips for choosing your new perfect pair: For starters, Maryland-based podiatrist Priya Parthasarathy, DPM, says you should look for sturdy shoes that can’t be bent completely in half. They should also have a removable insole (bonus points if it’s memory foam!) and a firm, supportive heel.
