Kick it old school: These classic, nurse-approved Reeboks are on sale for $37

Updated ·8 min read

We often spot deals for comfortable sneakers, but rarely do we see a brand name like Reebok go on mega sale. Today is one of those days! The Reebok Princess Sneakers, a favorite among nurses for being a fashionable-yet-functional shoe that can handle 12-hour shifts, are on sale at Amazon for $37, down from $50.

Sizes are going fast, so be sure to snap up the pair you like before it's gone.

The Princess sneakers are absolute classics in Reebok's collection. Beyond the stylish aesthetics, they have staying power in the fashion world for their amazing level of comfort.

To keep your feet dry and cool, Reebok's Princess sneakers have a terry lining that absorbs moisture while you wear them. And the special die-cut EVA midsole provides durability during long periods of walking.

Three decades of love

Nearly 17,000 five-star reviewers say these are their go-to sneakers for exercising or demanding on-your-feet jobs. Some have been wearing them for years.

"I have worn the Princess style shoe since the late '80's and every pair has been consistent in fit, comfort, and its duration or miles of comfortable, usable wear," a long-time fan says. "I love this shoe because I have narrow feet and the medium width fits well with regular socks. No jogger here, but I do daily walking and know that I will always be comfortable in a pair of these shoes."

Healthcare worker approved

Many reviewers who work in nursing or in healthcare and spend 12 or more hours walking are also Reebok Princess loyalists.

"I bought these for work and today is my first day wearing them walking around the hospital," one healthcare worker says. "I can already tell they are going to break in nicely. I do a lot of walking so I wanted something comfortable yet stylish, and I found that in these Reeboks. I like a tennis shoe that supports my foot in all the right places. I’m glad I took a chance and tried these."

A nurse also adds, "I wear these sneakers both for work in a hospital and exercising at home. One pair lasts me about 6 months with this heavy usage. They're so comfortable for hospital work, better than any actual nursing shoes I've ever had. I love the low price point. they fit true to size."

"Been wearing this shoe as a nursing shoe for over 30 years," another dedicated fan adds.
