'Better than Crocs': Amazon's $28 clogs are loved by podiatrists, nurses and doctors alike

We all know the annoying and time-consuming routine: lace up the sneakers, run out to the mailbox, go back inside and take off the sneakers. And then, 3 hours later, again lace up the sneakers, fetch the dog from the backyard, go back inside and take off the sneakers. Who wants to continually bend down and tie their shoes or fiddle with straps? Flip-flops are flimsy, shower slides lack support and neither will protect your toes against rocks or other toe-stubbers. Who needs that aggravation? It's time to grab a pair of shoes that slip right on, don't look ridiculous and, most importantly, are comfortable as all get out. We give you Amoji Unisex Garden Clogs — for just $28 a pair.

These clogs offer a bunch of clever design features: mini massaging bumps in the footbed to gently caress your feet; drainage holes to ensure water won’t get trapped inside and a non-slip sole for stability and safety.

Available in 11 colors, ranging from classic black and white to brights like blue and red, these clogs have amassed more than 22,500 five-star reviews, as well as rave feedback from medical professionals.

“They’re wide and accommodative in the toe box area,” New York City board-certified podiatrist Dr. Polina Zaydenberg tells Yahoo. “They also look really breathable.”

One word of caution? Dr. Zaydenberg suggests wearing socks with the shoes, as friction from the material could cause blisters.

It true that Amoji clogs are the perfect shoes for putting around the yard or on the beach, but shoppers report rocking them in all kinds of interior and exterior spaces, and all seasons. That said, the majority of reviewers refer to them as their go-to house shoes.

"More stylish than Crocs and very comfortable," says a fan. "Highly recommend these for lazy lounging shoes for inside or outside use." Another wearer agreed: "Better than Crocs," they insisted, adding, "Softer material. ... I’m hooked! Everyone I asked who hates the look of Crocs said they’d wear these bad boys."

Health professionals spend their entire day on their feet, so if they say a shoe is comfortable, we believe it. “Perfect fit,” one nurse shared. “Look very cute with my nurse scrubs. Going to order more colors. Very comfortable.”

The clogs even turned a doctor’s head. “I bought these clogs for my husband,” said a shopper. “They were the best thing I could have bought him. He wears them all the time. He wore them while visiting my uncle in the hospital. A doctor on staff asked where he got them — he wanted info so he could get them.”

A third chimed in: “I love these shoes. I primarily use these to go to and from work. I work in an ambulance and don’t like to wear my work shoes...home. These are great to keep my feet cool after long days.”

Nearly all shoppers raved about the comfort level of these kicks.

One wrote: “I love these clogs — they are really comfortable and awesome. I have plantar fasciitis, and since I started wearing these the pain is almost gone!”

"Extremely comfortable," another shopper gushed. "They are very easy to slip in and out if and are very stylish and can be worn with just about anything."

Whether you trekked through dirt, spilled some coffee or decided to don these while doing yard work, the Amoji clogs are a snap to clean. Just add water (cue the hose!).

"I've had these garden clogs for over a year now and they are holding up just fine," one shopper shared. "They are very comfortable and I use them when I am house cleaning and mopping floors. They're easy to clean if they become soiled."

"Really like wearing these in the garden, lightweight and they fit nicely. The holes keep them cool, and they're so easy to rinse off," another added.

You can choose from 11 colors and unisex sizes 5 Men/6 Women to 14 Men/15 Women.
