Truth: Life is way better in comfortable shoes. When your feet are happy, you're happy. And when you're happy, you make great choices, like getting out in the sunshine for an autumn stroll. Or going to the gym. Or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Seriously, it's so simple: Great footwear is the foundation (literally!) for healthy living.

Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack seem to be clued in on this, and they're spreading the love. Right now the retailers are offering massive discounts on top comfort shoes, to make it easy (and affordable) to stroll into autumn with a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

We combed through the sales and plucked the best finds, from brands like Dr. Scholl's, Easy Spirit and more. We're talking irresistible walking boots from Vionic for nearly 70 percent off and chic Cole Haan kicks for 50 bucks (down from $150!).

Scroll, click and snap up your favorites. At these prices, sizes will go fast.

"These sneakers fit great, are not heavy and are super cute!" a shopper shared. "Can’t wait to wear them in the fall with jeans. I bought them in gray and black."
