Adidas' wildly popular Cloudfoam sneakers are nurse-approved — and on big-time sale

How can you tell if a walking shoe hits the mark? Glowing testimonials stream in from people on their feet constantly, like nurses, restaurant servers and even Disney theme park fanatics. If a shoe can survive that kind of abuse, then you know it’s up to the challenge of keeping your feet pampered and pain-free on a daily basis. Enter the Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoe, an Amazon top-seller. Tens of thousands of shoppers have bestowed them with five-star reviews — many of whom are folks who are always on the move. These puppies are usually sold out, but they're back in stock as we speak for Memorial Day! A variety of white and black models have been marked down to as low as $46, from $70. (Some other colors are discounted in particular sizes, but they're selling out quickly.)

Stretchy, comfy, and super cushiony. Plus, the mesh fabric prevents feet from overheating.

Nurses say you need these shoes, stat

The Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoe is just what the doctor (or a suitably accredited medical professional) ordered. We're talking about nurses, who routinely work extra long shifts and barely get to sit down. They love to brag about how Cloudfoams have saved their feet.

“I'm a nurse and work for 12 hours on my feet. I also have very flat, very wide, large feet for a woman,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “These shoes are so comfy! They're super light, flexible, they don't make any noise...I'm considering getting another pair to be running around, everyday shoes because wearing your gross nursing shoes outside the hospital...yuck!”

“If they can survive a trip to Disneyland and an everyday shift at an ER, then I’m sure they can survive an apocalypse...maybe,” wrote another.

Did someone say Disney? Theme park enthusiasts swear by these shoes

You can walk...and walk and walk. The Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoe will provide the support you need to keep up — even if you’re covering a lot of ground.

“I wore these for a four-day trip to Disney World, walking over five miles a day and standing in lines for hours, and my feet never hurt,” wrote a thrilled reviewer.

“I promptly wore these for three days straight at Disneyland after only wearing them for about a week prior, and had zero blisters,” wrote another fan of the sneakers’ staying power.

How do they do it? It’s all about the cushioning, said this reviewer: “Cloudfoams' interior kept me comfy and energized during a whole day at Disney.... This sneaker has done the job [with] no foot complaints and sit-down breaks like with other shoes in the past.”

These kicks come highly recommended by service industry workers

As a diner you get to sit and enjoy your meal. But those servers? They’re punishing their feet all night long, and Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoes are a much-needed relief.

“I’m a waitress, I run around like crazy, and at the end of my shift it doesn’t feel like I’ve been on my feet all day,” wrote one worker. “I also have very wide feet, and after breaking them in I have no issues.”

They’re so practical — and they’re on sale!

It’s pretty plain to see by now why the Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoes are such a fan favorite. They’re cute, they support your feet all day with memory foam cushioning, and their textile upper wipes clean easily, making them even more practical.

Right now this top-selling running shoe is on sale, so you can start off your weekend on the right foot...quite literally.

Stretchy, comfy, and super cushiony. Plus, the mesh fabric prevents feet from overheating.
