Now, if you’re in the mood to browse, keep reading for the best walking shoe deals we’ve found just in time for the spring. (And if the weather near you is less than pleasant but you’re still craving a stroll, might we suggest a walking treadmill instead?)
Like just about any other shopping category on Amazon, the footwear options are deep and varied, but there are quite a few reliable favorites available at delightfully low prices. That includes highly rated pairs from New Balance, Saucony, and Adidas, as well as SELF Sneaker Award–winners from Skechers.
Nordstrom is one of our go-to places for deals on everything from clothing to beauty. Right now the department store has a wonderful walking shoe selection that runs the style gamut. There are lots of Nikes for both the streetwear stroller and the walker who also runs. There are also some enticing picks from outdoor brand Sorel—including waterproof suede booties—that promise function and form in equal measure thanks to their cool designs, which afford plenty of traction for slippery sidewalks and rocky paths.
We can always trust Dick’s Sporting Goods to have special offers on our favorite workout leggings, adjustable dumbbells, and other home gym essentials. That also includes sneakers that’ll feel great whether you’re running errands or just running, period. You’ll find bestsellers from fan-favorite brands like Hoka, Brooks, Asics, and Nike that you can simply pull on before hitting the road.
As much as we love trail running shoes for, well, trail running, they also make excellent lightweight hiking shoes. If you’re planning to spend more time in the great outdoors this season, you should also check REI’s clearance section for deals on hiking must-haves like backpacks, trekking poles, and versatile trail runners from Merrell and The North Face.
Zappos is the place to find footwear ranging from slippers and sneakers to comfy-casual shoes, so it’s hardly a surprise that it has a deep catalog of discounts on walking shoes as well. Standouts include a super-cushioned pair from New Balance, time-tested Reeboks, and Adidas lace-up hiking sneaker hybrids made with waterproof Gore-Tex (in case it gets rainy).
Allbirds’ wear-them-anywhere sneakers are made with Merino wool and eucalyptus fibers for odor and moisture control—a major plus when the weather’s getting warmer or if your feet tend to sweat. Right now, you can snag a pair for up to 40% off, no coupon required.
Target really is a one-stop shop—there’s a reason that the running joke is you go in to buy a birthday card and walk out having spent $200. For all the impulse purchases the retailer offers, you can expect to save as much as 54% on major brands like Asics and Reebok, with the option to pick your shoes up in stores, depending on your location.
New arrivals to Nike’s sale page roll in on a regular basis, so if you don’t see something you like today, check back again soon. But before you peruse the brand’s leggings, running shorts, sports bras, and joggers, head straight for the shoes, where you’ll find several SELF Certified pairs (including the Waffle One and Pegasus 39, featured below) that are great for logging steps.
Though Backcountry’s current Winter Clearance sale event puts the spotlight on snowsports gear, don’t overlook its equally tempting deals on walking and hiking shoes. Whether you’re looking to breeze down the trail or navigate slippery rocks, you can find a capable shoe at a comfortable price at Backcountry.
