There’s a reason Skechers are a Yahoo reader fave — they’re synonymous with comfort, durability, and affordability. Podiatrists love them and so do we.
That’s why we’re so thrilled to tell you about this Prime Day deal: The Amazon-Skechers exclusive sneaker line known as Concept 3 is offering discounts of up to 34 percent right this minute. Your feet—and your wallet—should jump for joy.
This collection is podiatrist-approved: “It offers comfortable walking shoes,” Dr. Nelya Lobkova, DPM at Step Up Surgical Podiatry in New York City, tells Yahoo Life. “All sneakers have a rubber-type sole with cushioning,” crucial, as we get older because “we lose much of the fat pad that provides natural cushioning as we age.”
Another benefit: a firm heel counter (that’s the part of the shoe that cradles the heel) and “aids in proper alignment of the foot,” says the doctor.
If you have specific foot issues, take note: “All sneakers in this line have a memory foam insole, which accommodates multiple bony deformities, including bunions, heel spurs, and metatarsalgia [inflammation of the ball of the foot], as well as fat-pad atrophy,” Dr. Lobkova adds.
Accommodating foot issues while also looking cool is what this Amazon-Skechers sneaker line is all about. Today only—the second and final day of Prime Day, you can score a pair starting at just $31.50—on sale from $45. But hurry— sizes are going fast.

A soft suede upper and a hit of silver gives this platform sneaker a stylish flourish—but it doesn’t just shine in terms of aesthetics. This shoe “has a 1.5 inch heel, which minimizes stress on the Achilles tendon,” says Dr. Lobkova. And the gradient that puts the heel slightly higher than the ball of the foot is good for folks who are on their feet a lot, according to Dr. Lobkova.
Chunky ‘dad’ sneakers are cool and trendy—but more likely, you’ll appreciate the fact that they’re super-comfy. This sneaker “shows a higher amount of cushioning due to its ‘sawtooth outsole’ and 1.5-inch heel,” Dr. Lobkova says. We love the metallic detailing—it makes this sneaker fun to wear.
Dr. Lobkova recommends these kicks, which have a memory foam insole, for people with bunions and bony deformities like metatarsalgia. They’re so cute, we recommend them for everyone—especially at this price.
These stylish sneakers have more than just good looks. According to Dr. Lobkova, they’re a great choice for those on their feet all day, like nurses and teachers. “When standing for a prolonged period of time, it’s important to have a rigid midsole and a firm heel counter for stability,” the podiatrist explains. You want “the back of the foot slightly more elevated than the ball of the foot—this places the foot in a more neutral position and takes tension off of the Achilles tendon, which is important when you’re on your feet all day.” The doctor says these shoes have the most traction on the outsoles.
