Sneakers are often one of two things — comfortable or cute, and hardly ever both. So imagine our surprise to find that Amazon shoppers have found the holy grail: a pair that's not only stylish and supportive, but affordable, too!
The Yilan Fashion Sneakers, starting at just $24 right now, are made for summer. Designed with lightweight mesh and a breathable, comfortable insole, they feel like walking on — you guessed it — air. The irresistible — and ultralight! — EVA soles don't hurt either.
Among the shoes' near-3,000 five-star fans? Nurses! Medical professionals rave about these easy-to-style kicks, praising just how comfy they feel even after all-day wear.
"I wear them at work," another shopper noted. "I am a nurse so I can say for sure my feet don't hurt at the end of the day. Wide enough for my feet also. Great shoe and price."
One even shared that these shoes are all she wears both to her shifts and around the house:
"I am a registered nurse and have spent hundreds of dollars on nursing shoes and still could not find any for my perfectly flat feet," she confided. "Bought these for home and they are so comfortable I bought several more pairs. These are all I wear now for work and home."
A fourth chimed in: "Very comfortable! The perfect shoe when working in hospitals! They add pizzazz to medical scrubs!"
Available in 17 colors and ranging from size 6 to 11, there's no shortage of options — and whether you gravitate toward neutrals or a brighter palette, you're sure to fall in love.
Who else adores these on-sale kicks? Teachers!
"These are the perfect lightweight, all-day shoe," writes one. "I am a teacher and will wear these on days where I know I'll be on my feet all day because they are so comfortable. I highly recommend these shoes!"
But step to it: Repeat shoppers are quickly buying up the entire stock!
Shared a reviewer: "These are so comfortable I ordered a second pair in another color! I am a teacher and on my feet all day!"
Keeping my hands clean is obviously top of mind right now, so I took it upon myself to try several hand sanitizer brands this month. This Touchland Power Mist Hand Sanitizer ($12) is both effective and pretty to look at - an awesome combination. "The dermatologist tested formula is packed with good-for-you ingredients like hydrating Aloe Vera and a blend of essential oils to leave hands soft and healthy," Touchland states.
A week or two on a Greek island sounds like just the antidote for post-pandemic weariness. Yet the UK’s ever changing travel rules, and restrictions in Greece itself, make it tricky to plan a late summer getaway.
There was a time when 'sustainable clothing' would conjure images of unflattering and suspiciously scratchy styles. Thankfully, there are now a number of brands (and vintage shops) challenging that view. When it comes to online shopping, there are tips we can take on board when trying to make our wardrobes more planet-friendly, whether it's organising clothes swaps with friends or investing in timeless, transitional pieces.
Back in the mid-1980s, I was travelling on the Tube to go shopping in London’s Oxford Street, dressed like every other 17-year-old from Essex, in that suburban fare of bleached jeans and a yellow tanktop. Sitting opposite me was a black-clad student, wearing Doc Martens and reading James Joyce. I want to be that person, I thought.
