Unsurprisingly, there are thousands of shoes on sale for Amazon Prime Day, happening now through July 13. Summery flip flops, wedding-ready heels, gardening clogs, house slippers—you name it, and it's likely deeply discounted for two days during the Amazon shopping event, tempting you to upgrade you wardrobe with the click of a button.

Before you add to cart, however, skip the slippers and consider shopping for sneakers with arch support instead. Proper arch support can make the difference between a shoe that takes you miles, and a shoe that makes you never want to wear shoes again.  "Good arch support is a must for any high-quality shoe, and slippers are no exception," Velimir Petkov, DPM, a podiatrist at Premier Podiatry in Clifton, New Jersey, previously told Well+Good. Considering top-tier sneaks from from name brands can cost anywhere from the high double digits to high triples, now is the perfect time to snatch some up.

Below, you'll find the best sneakers for knocking around your neighborhood, hitting the gym, or just running errands. Keep your arches happy—and you will go far. Podiatrist's orders.

These sunset-inspired sneakers will add a little extra something, something to any athleisure outfit, as will the other colors in the collection, like the plum purple, black and pink, and classic white. This style is ideal for cross training, so lace these up when you’re ready to strength train, box, or spin.

Puma, Lqd Cell Shatter Xt Cross Trainer

If you’re looking for an edgier trainer, this Puma style is the gal for you. The close-to-skin, sock fit and the solid arch support will take you far, and earn you some street style cred. There’s also some serious cushioning in the heel, so if you’re someone who likes a little extra plushness in the back of the shoe, check these out.

Ryka, Women's Vivid RZX Cross Trainer

These chunky sneakers borrow from your grandparents… but in the very best way. The breathable, engineered mesh sleeve will keep you cool whether you’re going out for a casual walk or cycling through the strength training machines at the gym. We’re partial to this frosty violet ice hue, but the juicy raspberry and even tie-dye are fun, too. Best part is, they come in wide sizes, too, giving you the best fit for your feet.

Adidas, Women's Cloudfoam Pure 2.0 Running Shoe

Prices vary by size and color.

Alright, floral print! The rubber sole on this shoe offers the feel of sneakers with all the support you need for a long day of standing or walking, while the textile upper keeps airflow moving on swampy, sweaty days. If floral isn’t the look for you, the Cloudfoam Pure comes in many other color ways, some of which are just as discounted for Prime Day.

 

New Balance, Women's FuelCore Nergize V1 Sneaker

Up to 40 percent off, prices vary by size and color.

You can’t tell from the outside, but this sneaker has a memory foam sole that will make you feel like you’re walking on a plush, freshly-formed cloud. Even though they’re lightweight, the insole is sturdy enough to support flat feet or high arches. They come in a variety of muted and flashy styles (depending on your preferred aesthetic) and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Asics, Women's Gel-Kayano 27 Running Shoes

Prices vary by size and color.

Asics is a go-to brand of choice for arch support thanks to their ergonomic sneakers, like the Gel-Kayano.
