They do the job of expensive designer sneakers at a fraction of the cost. Many of Amazon’s 9,200 five-star reviewers — including nurses, teachers and essential workers — say they feel like they’re walking on air.

Praise from the medical community
The cushioned construction earned praise from a nursing student who wrote, “These shoes are the best sneakers I’ve ever worn!” I started nursing school wearing clogs… and my feet would kill me after wearing them for only three hours. I bought these because they said they were super cushioned and your feet felt supported and that’s exactly what they do. Best purchase I’ve made for nursing school.
“I’m a nurse. Bought these for work for good support,” wrote another. haven’t been complimented on them either…great price, great support.”
Doctors also love Yhoon walking shoes. Board-certified podiatrist Dr Polina Zaydenberg says the sole provides excellent shock absorption. “The platform is ideal for heel pain and metatarsalgia [pain in the ball of the foot]“, she shares with Yahoo Life.

And they are super cute! The 15 colors available include black, gray, navy blue and purple.
