Now that we’re seeing consistent sunshine in the weather report, consider this a perfect time to reintroduce yourself to a forgotten pastime: walking outdoors.

According to Dr. Suzanne Levine, founder of Millennium Podiatry in New York City, walking causes 2.5 times body weight pressure on the foot, versus 3 to 5 times for running. Basically, more velocity equals more pressure. When buying trainers for your walks, look for stability to help avoid overpronation (which occurs when the arch of the foot collapses excessively downward or inward), a sturdy heel, lightweight construction, ample cushioning and a spacious toe box.

Lucky for you, the STQ Slip On Mesh Walking Shoes include all these features. Additional benefits include a thick sole with air cushion to help with shock absorption and stretch to help the foot fit perfectly. dr Levine notes that an upper that conforms to your foot is essential—you shouldn’t have to spend extra time breaking in a shoe before daily 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.”

One Amazon shopper called these shoes “perfect,” which is quite the endorsement.

“I’m standing on my feet all day as an occupational therapy student,” they continued. “One of my classmates recommended the shoes to me and I’ve been in love with them ever since. So comfortable and offer so much support.”

Another satisfied customer, who owns a pair in two different colors, lauded the walkers for helping with their arthritis: “I have a high instep on one foot and I can get my foot in these shoes. They are by far the most comfortable ‘walking ‘ Shoe I’ve ever found. I have bone spurs & arthritis in one heel, and the air cushion is perfect for that. No pain at all since I’ve started wearing these shoes. Plus, they’re really cute.”

Great for all-day wear, 15 colors to choose from, and they’re on sale? Sounds like the sign you need to snag a pair of the STQ Slip On Mesh Walking Shoes at Amazon today.
