Comfortable Walking Shoes for Women

Kamik® ByronBay 2 active sandals

Buy from Zappos, $60

These slip-on sandals might look and feel like a sandal, but the supportive footbed and sneaker-like bottom allow you to walk comfortably for miles. Customers recommend ordering your usual size instead of sizing up or down for the best fit!

More Outdoor Walking Shoe Features

  • Perforated slip-on style
  • Elastic laces with lock tab
  • 10 oz. weight
  • Three color options

Why Customers Love These Outdoor Walking Shoes

I like these a lot – it’s not easy to find a water shoe that covers the heel which IMO is really dumb, especially in dark water where you can see where you are placing your feet. These shoes have a solid covered heel and plenty of openings for drainage and drying.

Wearing shoes all day has never been more comfortable thanks to the SKECHERS® Arch Fit Refine Iris Shoes. They have a laceless design and slip right on to your feet without a hassle to get you outdoors faster than ever.

Women’s Slip-On Outdoor Shoes

Birkenstock® Arizona Rugged sandals

Buy from Zappos, $145

These might be slip-on shoes, but they’re not just any slip-on shoes. These Birkenstock® Arizona Rugged were designed with a rugged polyurethane outsole made for the great outdoors. With two adjustable buckles, suede lining, and a footbed made of cork and latex, these slip-ons were made with your comfort and being outside in mind. Customers have said these tend to run large, so size down when ordering.
