Shoe choice can make or break your workout. That may seem dramatic, but think about it: If your running sneakers aren’t up to par or hiking sandals don’t have enough support, every minute of exercise can be pretty unbearable. On the other hand (or, well, foot), a pair of shoes that suits your fit preferences and supports your chosen activity can make a massive difference in how you feel and perform. If you’re ready to snag a new pair, it’s actually the perfect time: Amazon Prime Day 2023 is coming up (Tuesday, July 11 and Wednesday, July 12), and there are tons of great deals on footwear. You can find some impressive discounts on brands like Hoka, New Balance, Adidas, and so many more.
As an FYI: You need to be a Prime member in order to access the discounts during the two-day sale (or sign up for a free trial). You’ll also get speedy, free shipping on any purchase with your membership—so you won’t need to wait long to level up your daily fitness routine with a fresh pair of shoes.
In fact, you don’t even have to wait to shop: There are a number of early markdowns available right now, and we’ve rounded up some stars from the Amazon Prime Day Sale.
