No surprise that Dr. Scholls, a name synonymous with foot health, shows up in this Zappos sale with a pair that puts a premium on comfort and support. The Nailed It (yes, that's its actual name) features a padded collar to prevent ankle chafing and a light but chunky sole that lets you know with every step that you're protected from what's underfoot. Oh, that gorgeous leather upper don't hurt, either. Comes in five colors, but we're partial to this cloud-like blue.
