Maybe your job requires you to be on your feet all day. Or perhaps you're running errands...or literally running. Whatever your situation, you know the importance of a sturdy, comfy pair of shoes — they can literally make the difference between a good day and a blister-plagued disaster.

With over 7,000 five-star reviews, these cool kicks have amassed quite a fanbase — including a bunch of medical professionals and those in the service industry. Here's what they had to say:
Nurses can't get enough
Nurses are on their feet all day — sometimes for 12 or more hours at a time. So if they say a certain pair of sneakers are comfortable, we listen. One raved about how excellent the sneakers were at helping mitigate pain: "I bought these shoes with the hope that my back, knee, and foot pain will be alleviated," the shopper shared. "I am a registered nurse, so my ladies and gentlemen who suffer from these pains especially, this one's for you! Two weeks into wearing these and my chronic low-back pain, aggravated knees, and foot soreness is GONE! You heard right! GONE!"
Another chimed in: "I'm a nurse and walk all day. I was having heel and hip pain from a past cancer surgery on my back. The first pair of these shoes stopped the pain. This is about my fifth pair and I love them. They are comfortable, lightweight and hold up to all day walking."
This hospital worker added: "These are so lightweight and feel like a feather on your feet! Love these! Got these because I work at a hospital and used to get sore feet all the time. Ever since these came in, my feet could breathe and they are never sore!"
"I wore them to work (I’m a CNA [certified nurse assistant], on my feet all night)," another reviewer shared. "I worked a double shift,16 hours. They made my feet feel good all night! Planning on buying another pair!"
The knitted top feels like a more structured sock, giving you support with freedom to move.
"I am so happy with these shoes," says a fan. "They are so lightweight, so comfortable and they feel like wearing socks with a bottom to them to keep you from slipping. I have health issues starting with numbness in my feet and legs — these offset some of the problems. I really recommend them to anyone in need of comfort for their feet and legs."
And remember, long shifts no longer have to wreck your feet — at least, not according to this shopper: "I work in a bakery. My shift was over 11 hours straight working on a concrete floor," says the five-star reviewer. "My 42-year-old feet didn’t even ache for one second when I got home."
Shutterstock“Stagflation” is an ugly word for an ugly situation – the unpleasant combination of economic stagnation and inflation. The last time the world experienced it was the early 1970s, when oil-exporting countries in the Middle East cut supplies to the United States and other supporters of Israel. The “supply shock” of a four-fold increase in the cost of oil drove up many prices and dampened economic activity globally. Stagflation was thought left behind. But now there is a real risk of it
