Teachers love these 'incredibly comfortable' Skechers slip-ons — get them while they're up to 40% off

If you have a job that requires you to be on your feet all day, you probably have a few remedies for soothing your sore puppies. But if you want to prevent pain altogether, you know a good pair of shoes is a must. Teachers spend around six hours a day standing, so I trust them when they say these Skechers sneakers are "very comfortable" in their Amazon reviews. Need some cozy kicks? Get them for up to 40% off.

Choose from over 20 colors — after reading the reviews, you may be tempted to buy more than one pair.

$31 at Amazon

The discount varies depending on color and size, but this classic white pair is just $31, down from $45. Another great neutral, black, is $30, down from $50. While the price does seem to have dropped ever-so-slightly lower back in January, this is still among the best deals we've seen. And there's no telling when these top-selling sneakers will get a deeper discount again (if ever).

Simply slip these no-tie canvas sneakers on and go. Yes, that's right — you don't have to tie them. The tied-off laces are decorative, and the shoes stretch to help you get your feet in. As for comfort, they have Skechers' memory foam cushioned insoles, and the canvas upper is super-soft — no blisters here!

These shoes are also machine washable. If you've ever worn canvas shoes, you know this is essential. Between toe scuffs and spills, canvas sneakers can take a beating. Once they look a little worse for wear, just pop them in the washing machine with your regular detergent, then let them air dry.

Skechers Bobs B Cute sneakers are 100% vegan, and for every purchase, the brand makes a donation to animals in need. So far, Skechers has donated over $10 million to animal organizations and has helped 1.9 million shelter dogs and cats, according to its website.

More than 27,700 shoppers give these sneakers five out of five stars, and teachers especially rave about them.

"Love these shoes!" wrote one teacher. "They are incredibly comfortable. I take over 15,000 steps a day as a teacher, and these bad girls are crushing the shoe game. I am actually waiting to get a second pair because the white is bright white and that's cool if you aren't working with kindergarten."

"I just love Bobs Skechers and have three different colors," said another educator. "The fact that I don't have to lace them and there is no pinching allows me to wear them every day while teaching. I added a shoe insert to give even more support, and I'm a happy camper. The students even compliment me and I'm not a spring chicken. Highly recommend."

One teacher pointed out that they're also cute — not a given for comfy shoes! "I actually love these for work," they said. "To me, being a teacher, they lend themselves to casual-dressy attire while still being nice and comfortable. My days of wearing heels are gone. These are an awesome replacement."

Sizing is always a bit of a gamble when it comes to online shoe shopping. Some reviewers said these run at least a half size big, and they're particularly well-suited for people with wide feet.

"I wear a size 7 in everything. I got the sneakers in the black size 7," explained one shopper. "Unfortunately, they are a half a size too big and my foot slipped out when I walked. Maybe if I wore thick socks they would fit better? They also run wide, and I do have an average-width foot."

"The shoes are very comfortable and light, but [I] had to exchange because they were a whole size too big," said another.

Although you can wash these canvas classics, the black pair won't show dirt as easily — and they're a better bargain!
