Now more than ever, it’s obvious that comfort and style should go hand in hand. After all, we’ve been spinning the plush tracksuits and slippers for the past two years. And while I’m thrilled to see the real clothes back, I can’t bring myself to put on those pointy-toe boots or strappy sandals that have been shoved to the back of my closet. With my back-to-office schedule in place and social events back on the calendar, I need a pair of shoes that will make my life easier without worrying about squashed toes and aching arches. Step into the EMOVE Mariliss sneakers from Easy Spirit.

As someone who never misses an opportunity to try something soft, my first step into Marliss sneakers was a feel-good moment for my feet. Not only was there no break-in time needed (who has the patience for that?), but the fit instantly adapted to the shape of my foot. And with every step, the patented EMOVE technology made me feel like I was walking on mattresses. I’m someone with incredibly high arches – thanks to all those years of childhood dancing – and these lightweight walking shoes have given me support and relief.

Now not only are these sneakers super comfy, they’re actually cuteno compromise between comfort and style is necessary here. They are compatible with orthoses without looking at as they are orthotic friendly, and they are versatile enough to dress up with a bright summer dress or dress down with a trusty pair of leggings and a crew neck. Moreover, they are available in different colors: pink, black, gray and the always reliable classic white. An additional bonus? The EMOVE collection goes beyond the Marliss and comes in a variety of silhouettes that include sneakers, sandals and mules with extended width for women and men.

Since my first steps, these walking shoes have faithfully accompanied me in my daily life, whether I’m running at the office (literally running, because I forgot I’m no longer on a WFH schedule) or bouncing off to a happy hour the weekend. So while we’re all still adjusting to IRL routines, these trainers will ensure your feet don’t have to.
