Why is it a good deal? 💰

TikTok is nothing if not style-conscious, so Cushionaire slides are not just a dream on the feet but are cool, to boot. And for as little as $25 (down from $40) you not only get style cred but the relief that comes with their pillow-like construction.

Why do I need this? 🤔

People love these slippers for that walking-on-air feel, but they have another big asset: They're waterproof, so you can wear them to the pool, at the sauna or in the shower without damaging them. And their nonslip out soles will keep you stable even in the wettest situations. But there's plenty more to love about them — most importantly, their comfort factor. Their flexibility and molded-cushion footbed ensure you'll feel both cozy and supported — count on it! They're available in 29 colors ranging from basic black and brown to popping purples and pinks, though prices vary by color.

A lot of runners use “recovery shoes" after workouts to give their feet some TLC. The idea has caught on with non-runners as well — and these slides have gained traction (if you will) with Amazon shoppers to ease post-exercise foot pain.

What reviewers say 💬

Oh, and they're not just for leisure time: Folks who spend a lot of time on their feet say these slides make it less of a chore, whether at home or at work.

Pros 👍

“These shoes are so comfortable,” one reported. “I work in sales and stand all day. These slides are a pillow for my aching feet.”

“My daughter had a pair of these that she told me to try them … amazingly comfortable,” said one customer. “Heel spurs, neuromas and other aches melt away. Very affordable comfort. Easy to wipe down. I wouldn’t mind having some other colors for summer pool and beach wear."

“I have spondylolisthesis and spinal stenosis, so I get horrible back, leg and foot pain,” wrote a relieved reviewer. “These shoes literally help relieve my pain while I’m working standing on my feet. They are super cute — I get tons of compliments on them — and they are breathable, lightweight and easy to keep clean.”

Cons 👎

Some shoppers found that they may not be entirely true to size. “A little loose over the top," cited one. "But I do wear socks with them, making a snugger feel."

"Wish they fit tighter," said another. "These just fit too loosely across the top of my foot to feel confident. For reference, I’m usually an 8, sometimes 8.5 and I ordered the 8. I think I might even have to size down."

With 29 colors available, you can really go wild with your choices.
