'Changed my world!' These super comfy sneakers are less than $40 at Amazon

Updated ·10-min read

We’re all trying to get out and about a little more this summer. Armed with comfy walking shoes, there’s no telling how far we can go on foot. If you’re a seasoned walker, you’ve probably gotten attached to your favorite walking shoe but, to our disappointment, walking shoes don’t last forever. When it's time to refresh those sneakers, the number of budget options out there can be overwhelming. But that’s what we’re here for! We’ve scoped out some of the best budget walking shoes on Amazon and we found this fan-favorite for less than $40: Lancrop Sock Walking Shoes.

LANCROP Sock Walking Shoes

$39 at Amazon

This shoe provides breathable comfort, thanks to its stretchy knit mesh uppers, and the rubber soles are bouncy for durability and traction.

Just like the name suggests, these comfy walking shoes slip on your feet like a sock. Thanks to the mesh fabric, it’s stretchy enough that they fit snugly without shoe laces. That means there’s no chance of tripping over your laces when you’re walking your dog or running to the store — and that’s something Amazon shoppers really appreciate.

“I routinely walk about an hour around my neighborhood,” shared one of nearly 5,000 five-star reviewers. “[I] had been so frustrated with my lace-up expensive athletic shoes which take awhile to put on and then the laces are too tight or too loose and so annoying. These shoes fit perfectly, you don’t need socks, you can’t feel them on your feet, they are supportive but not tight, they don’t rub or cut off the circulation on the top of your foot. Plus they are cute, inexpensive and come in a ton of colors.”

“I haven’t worn a shoe with a back in over 2 years!” wrote another excited shopper. “I was scared to even try on shoes because I have a 3 scars and a small wound on the back of my heel, going up my Achilles’ tendon! But this slip on, no laces and stretchy sock like fabric HAS CHANGED MY WORLD! I already feel a difference in my walking and pain in my calf!”

Knee pain relief

But it’s not just the ease of pulling these on or the comfort of not being bound by laces that shoppers love. Some found relief for bad knees and other pain points.

“These run a tiny big large..but that allows me to add an insole for more support and comfort,” wrote one happy walker. “On their own they are pretty comfortable with no “break in “ period needed. These are a tremendous find for my 67 year old feet ..bunions..arthritic toes,hips and knees. Just what I was looking for to still look a bit trendy in my skinny jeans and dress/ skirts. They are great to put on after a long day at work and to get out of my athletic shoes. Price is very reasonable..I already ordered another pair in black🙂Would highly recommend.”

“I originally ordered these as a shoe to take to hospital with me after a knee replacement surgery for walking,” another rave reviewer reported. “Liked the idea that they slip on and the elastic around the ankle holds it securely in place. SO I tried them on and loved them immediately. My idea was to wear them and break them in before getting my surgery. Much to my surprise, i found I wear them ALL the time. Great walking shoe for summer!! Very lightweight and the mesh keeps the feet cool and free from sweating. I love the idea I can slip these on and don't have to wear socks. Since I LIVE in sandals during summer, these are a great alternative to a closed toe shoe with the comfort and support of a comfortable leather walking shoe. Plus the price is right!”

Great work shoes

For people who are on their feet all day at work, these shoes are a game-changer.

“I love these shoes! I work in a hospital where I struggled with back, feet and knees hurting constantly,” raved a five-star fan. “I would get home from work and barely be able to walk. I took a leap of faith when I bought these shoes. I will tell you it was the best choice. I am not exaggerating when I say I never come home sore from work anymore. The price was even amazing. I do and will continue to recommend these shoes to any one. Best purchase yet as far as shoes go.”

“I work at Costco in the warehouse and have struggled to find shoes that keep my feet happy whether I’m standing for 8 hours at the exit or entrance door, or walking miles doing ‘go backs,’” a satisfied customer shared. “These shoes work for both. Very light weight and comfortable. I do use an insert and rotate shoes so I never wear the same pair two days in a row. These are my favorite so far.”
