The 10 Best Walking Shoes for Women of 2023, Tested and Reviewed

The Swift


Yes, it has classic slip-on sneaker styling. But this shoe hides a secret feature that (ahem) elevates the whole look: A hidden wedge heel adds height to the comfortable, versatile shoe done in real leather. Colors on sale include black, white, and shell — all go-with-everything classics. Enamored shoppers who bought this style call it the “best all-day shoe ever” while another chimed in that they are “great to walk around in.” Sounds like a winner for walking tours and exploring new places to us.

The Cardinal


Every traveler needs a sneaker this versatile. The classic low-top sneakers have a hidden wedge heel for a bit of lift and they’re made of premium suede and lined with faux shearling. Oh, and they also feature removable faux fur-lined insoles. One owner of the shoes says they are “literally like walking on pillows,” making them an ideal comfy option for long travel days. The versatile colors of dune and black are both part of the sale — and (whew!) a wide range of sizes are still available in both hues.

The Falcon


Just perfect for winter travel, these comfy shoes are a little bit sneaker, a little bit boot. The faux-fur lining keeps your feet cozy and warm, while a water-resistant exterior keeps them protected from whatever weather you encounter on your journey. It’s the perfect combination of style and function, with one customer reporting they are “good for cold snowy days” and “chic as well.” Plus, a built-in wedge gives you a subtle boost.

The Roadrunner


This lace-up shoe has a distinctly retro vibe complete with a plush suede material. The uppers stand out from the crowd thanks to bold contrasting panels: Sale options range from neutral rose tones like rosette, currently as low as $65 but selling out fast, to options with printed details this fun but versatile black cheetah print style. Removable memory foam insoles keep them comfy as can be. Take it from this shopper, who said these are the “most comfortable sneakers I have.” Another Birdies fan loved them so much, they bought three pairs.

The Heron


This almond-toe shoe is actually inspired by the shoes worn by generations of Venetian gondoliers, so it’s a no-brainer for wanderlusters and travelers who stay chic when toting around town on foot. This shoe is made of vegan crushed velvet with floral-printed satin lining, and sale colors include olive green, amber, and garnet. One Birdies shopper said they “fit like a glove.”

The Starling


This classic round-toe flat gets more than 15,000 five-star reviews. The sale includes a wide range of Starling options, with a standout style for every climate or occasion marked down. Sale versions include lipstick pink vegan raffia; ocean blue or black velvet with floral embroidery; raspberry velvet lined with plaid print satin; sapphire blue or moonstone crushed velvet; and a forest green cable knit that resembles a favorite sweater for your feet. Also included in the sale are the ultra luxurious velvet versions in maroon, blue, or black, each embellished with crystal stars — great for special occasion dressing, not in winter but any time of year.

The Dove


Done in vegan leather, these slides have a woven design that evokes natural, organic materials. The pointed toe elongates legs and makes these slip-ons a bit dressier for evening wear. Layered comfort footbeds and a non-slip rubber sole make them practical for walking around town, and they’re lightweight and supremely packable, too. Sale colors include versatile ecru and cheery burnt orange, both dreamy hues for winter resort wear and for use into the warmer months. One Birdies customer who bought this pair for a winter cruise to the Caribbean said “they will be perfect” and are “super comfy.”

The Lark


Super easy to wear, this pointed-toe slide comes in a pale pink hue, and its silhouette goes with just about everything. Made of supple suede with a stretch that conforms to your foot, this shoe has a quilted, cloud-like footbed and a non-slip rubber sole. It’s easy to see why one shopper who’s often on their feet for nine to 10 hours per day said they are “incredible.” But hurry — these are going fast: Only sizes 9.5 and 10 remain.

The Goldfinch


This flat is divinely comfortable, despite its pointed toe and elegantly tailored silhouette. Made of vegan velvet and topped with a subtle tone-on-tone bow, these shoes have a pillowy, quilted insole. And here’s more good news: The seasonal green currently on sale has inventory available in every size.

The Swan


These chic, comfy slides made of lightweight suede come in a super versatile and understated silhouette that dresses up any outfit. But the options offered as part of the current sale make a statement that is anything but minimalist: Choose from a dazzlingly bejeweled gunmetal, black with a beaded cuff, or fuschia with a multicolored woven cuff. Best of all, they can be slipped into a carry-on without taking up space. Happy shoppers call these shoes, the “most gorgeous and comfortable shoes I’ve ever had,” while another described them as a “showstopper.”
