Updated ·3-min read

Ready for fun shoes that will actually put the spring back in your step in more ways than one? We found a pair that's been put to the test by a slew of nurses, teachers and Disney travelers. It has not only passed with flying colors (i.e., over 98,000 perfect five-star ratings!) but has also become an Amazon No. 1 bestseller. We're talking Hey Dude's Wendy Loafer. The rubber sole is lightweight and sturdy, and the fabric on the top of the shoe stretches over your foot for customized comfort. Plus, it's as cute as can be — and on sale starting at $27.

Teachers, nurses and Disney aficionados swear by these light and lovely loafers for all-day wear. They come 70+ different colors (prices vary).

If you plan on going to The Happiest Place on Earth — any park, for that matter — you need to wear The Most Comfortable Shoes Possible. Or, if you’re on your feet all day as a nurse or teacher or server, you know the importance of really supportive sneakers. Experts like that are digging these shoes.

Hey Dude Wendy Loafers come in over 70 colors and prints, ranging from neutrals to brights and prints (prices vary). They’re lightweight and cool.

Nurses love them

Nurses do a lot of walking, so if they recommend a pair of shoes, we listen. “I love my Hey Dudes,” one dished. “I am a nurse and need a comfortable shoe. These shoes meet every expectation, and then some. I love them. They are so comfortable. Definitely will be buying another pair or two.”

"I wear these shoes for everyday use and at work as a nurse," added another. "They are so light and comfortable, especially for the hot humid days! I wear an 8.5 and got a size 8, and it fit perfectly. I will be buying more in the future!"

"Best shoes I've ever owned," wrote a third. "I’m a nurse and have had plantar fasciitis for years…since I started wearing Hey Dudes my feet have not hurt…I wear nothing but Hey Dudes now!"

Teachers give these shoes an A+

Educators can’t get enough of these comfy Hey Dudes!

"Best. Shoes. Ever. Purchased," raved one. "I'm a teacher... I'm on my feet all day. When I go home I'm a ranch wife and boy mom. These are the best shoes I've ever had. They're so comfy. I'm flat-footed, so they are perfect.'

Another beamed: "So comfortable! Amazing! They match anything. They’re easy on and off. They don’t slip off the heels. Perfect teacher shoes. I haven’t worn anything else since I got them."

The ultimate Disney shoe

Multiple shoppers raved about how these are their go-to Disney shoes, and for good reason: You can walk miles in them and have a spring in your step the entire time!

"I LOVE these shoes," proclaimed one Mouse maven. "I bought them for a trip I took to Disney World. I walked EVERYWHERE, and they were so comfortable. definitely will buy more!!

"They live up to their hype!" added a convert. "Bought them for a Disney trip. Super lightweight and comfy! Also, the white is still white after Disney :) Def recommend."

Another grateful traveler wrote: "No cortisone shot needed. Every time I’ve gone to Disney for the last six years I have come home needing a cortisone shot for my plantar fasciitis. However, four days later I feel just fine walking around. I am so thankful to have found these shoes. They are so light and supportive that I plan to buy more for daily wear at work."

'Best shoes I've ever owned,' says an impressed reviewer. 'I’m a nurse and have had plantar fasciitis for years…since I started wearing Hey Dudes my feet have not hurt…I wear nothing but Hey Dudes now!'
