A stylish pair of shoes that make you feel like you’re walking on clouds and don’t cost an arm and a leg: Is it that much to ask for?
Zappos doesn’t seem to think so. The site just took a slew of its top-rated shoes—we’re talking hundreds of 4- and 5-star reviews here—and cut prices dramatically for Presidents’ Day. Some of the cutest of the bunch are half off!
Don’t feel like scrolling through pages of options? Well, we did the leg work for you. Here are 10 of the most popular, comfortable pairs with the biggest savings from Zappos’ giant Presidents’ Day sale.
Sometimes you need a great pair of waterproof boots that can double as everyday footwear. Sorel, makers of some of the most rugged footwear you’ll come across, has a style that fits the bill. This weather-resistant ankle bootie—from 40 to 50 percent off today—is built for all-day comfort with a memory foam footbed and soft leather or suede upper.
“For me, just the right combination of style and comfort,” wrote a happy shopper. “I’m in my early 50s and healthy but my feet do get sore and need support...I wore these, brand new, sightseeing in NYC all day on a cold winter day and they were warm and as comfortable and supportive as athletic shoes.”

In the worst of winter weather, you need a serious pair of snow boots that provide all-day comfort. This 5-star pair of boots by Columbia—30 percent off today—are winter-weather superstars. Not only do they have a waterproof woven synthetic textile upper with suede overlays for support, but they’re also lined with cozy faux fur. A removable contoured PU footbed is like chicken soup for your soles.
“Comfortable, uber warm (Chicago), winter weather resistant, comfortable low profile oh, and did I mention fuzzy-slipper comfortable?,” wrote one satisfied shopper who wears them to “trudge through the snow to the L, shovel snow off your driveway for 20min, or walk the slushy 1/2 mile to the ice creme shop where 3 people ask where I got my super cute boots...just sayin'.”

Slippers are the ultimate comfy shoes—but Ugg takes this around-the-house or out-to-the-store footwear to the next level. Water-resistant Silkee suede upper makes them supremely weather-resistant, but their delicious wool lining and cushioned footbed—an Ugg trademark—are what legions of this footwear brand’s fans live for.
“This pair of Uggs is snuggly and bears up under all forms of indoor and outdoor stress,” wrote a happy reviewer. “The interior is cushiony and conforms to the shape of the foot. I love them, and I know I will keep them for years.”

Looking for a running shoe that practically defies gravity? Brooks is the leading brand that needs to be on your radar. The cushioned footbed is built to have a flexible response, and the sneakers themselves are light as air. Hundreds of five-star reviewers would tell you to run, not walk, to score this incredible 25-percent-off deal.
“I love how I feel like I’m walking on a cloud all day!,” wrote a fan. “Reduced fatigue! Zero break-in needed and Brooks is proud to produce and honor our Stars and Stripes-because of that, I’m honored to support their brand!”

This might be the most comfortable, sophisticated pointy-toed ballet flat you’ll come across. Naturalizer is known for its soft, comfortable upper, and it uses sleek suede and leather in these. The slip-ons are built with dual-density cushioning on a patented contoured footbed with arch support.
“These are the most comfortable d’orsay footwear I’ve ever put on my feet,’ wrote a fan. “ I slipped into these shoes at the end of a 15hr day on my feet. I wanted to simulate swollen feet to see how I’d do in these shoes after walking all day. They took a minute or two to warm up and then fit like a soft leather glove.”

Give yourself the ultimate arch support with this chic wedge-heeled bootie with a molded PU like EVA footbed with soft microfleece top cover. There are good reasons Sorel calls these booties “endlessly wearable,” and their waterproof leather upper and super-grip rubber outsole certainly help.
“I have purchased several pairs of these Sorel wedges over the years,” wrote one pleased customer. “I am always an 8.5 and these were right on. Leather is comfortable...Great wedge for plantar fasciitis.”

Looking for a rain boot that’s not bulky and stiff like Wellies? Look no further. This casual ankle boot is wrapped in waterproof full-grain leather upper with a die-cut EVA midsole for shock absorption. This rain boot reminds us of a modified, urban hiking boot, and we love it.
“I haven't been this happy with a shoe in a long time,” wrote one loyal customer. These are light, lined, comfortable and functional. They even succeed in making my size twelve clodhoppers look slightly smaller.”

Kate Middleton’s canvas sneaker of choice is also a favorite among Zappos customers—and practically everyone who loves a chic tennis shoe. This one has chunky platform, cushioned footbed, and a soft canvas lining. It’s up to 49 percent off in colors like dark red and classic white!

These retro sneakers have been pleasing soles for generations, thanks to their classic three-stripe and shell-toe design. But it’s their padded tongue, cushioned footbed, and breathable textile lining that make them all-day warriors.
“I have had at least one pair of these for 20 years,” wrote a loyal customer. “I now have 5 in various colors. They continue to be a great classic causal sneaker look that I can wear for hours and hours on my feet. Fit remains consistent through the years.”

Another Ugg favorite, this slipper has a black premium leather upper with a fun multi-color rubber outsole. As always, it’s lined with wool—it’s in the sole, too—for all-day comfort and warmth. The shoe is designed to start snug then conform to your foot. Right now, they’re 50 percent off!
“I am one of those guys who swore I would never wear Uggs,” wrote a convert. “After putting these on, I [am] gonna be one of those guys who won't buy anything else. BUY THESE! You won't regret it.”
