Whether you're in the market for boots, casual sneakers, or athletic shoes, knowing the kicks you're buying won't wreak havoc on your feet is always a welcome feeling. But at the same time, a pair of super comfy shoes that's designed without any element of style is hardly worth the purchase either. Luckily, meeting in the middle just got so much easier thanks to Zappos.
Zappos just dropped its early access Black Friday deals, and they include plenty of comfy shoes in a variety of styles. Check out Kenneth Cole's surprisingly comfy Levon Boot for nearly $90 off its original price, or go for a top-rated pair of Vans' classic slip-ons, which rarely go on sale. Whichever pair you choose, you can rest assured knowing you're getting stylish shoes at a discount thanks to Zappos' early Black Friday sale.
Dr. Martens 1460 W Boot
Normally, combat-style boots don't scream "comfort." But this sturdy and supportive option from Dr. Martens is the exception. Not only does it have an excellent comfort rating and a durable leather build, but shoppers also note the boots are totally versatile. "I love my Doc Martens," one wrote. "They were immediately comfortable and have gotten even better as they soften. I use them on my Vespa and have gotten numerous compliments on them."
