Product Review: Sunnystep shoes for long-standing comfort and walking!

I was recently invited to pick a pair of Sunnystep shoes for review and I must say, they are a game changer. Before they reached out to me, I've never heard of them and now I don't think I'll ever forget. As someone who conducts training sessions in person post-pandemic that require me to stand for long hours from 9am to 5pm, I have been on the hunt for comfortable and supportive shoes that can prevent foot soreness at the end of the day so I was super happy when they wrote in to ask me to review their shoes. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that Sunnystep is proudly Singaporean with 9 store locations across the island now, including one at the underpass from ION Orchard towards Tangs. I always #supportlocal!

I had such a difficult time picking the shoes though because they all look fabulous! Initially I had my eye set on the Elevate Lace-Up Walker, but decided to keep my mind and eye open when I am at the store to see how it feels versus other designs. I tried it on and quite liked it, but it felt a beeeet squishy for me and there wasn't a size 40, so I moved on to the next best thing. The store assistant was also super patient and helpful in helping me try out all the shoes, which is something I felt is still invaluable when it comes to shoe shopping offline.

I also tried the Balance Knit Runner (S$145) one of their most popular designs. Even though it was super comfortable, I already have something similar with my knit adidas boost and didn't want to replicate it. Plus it was too sporty and casual looking for my needs (to teach). I didn't bother trying the Balance Runner (S$135) because it came in suede, which I don't see as practical in SG's weather or for when I might be using it for long walks overseas.  

So after trying and walking around I decided to get a very neutral beige coloured water-resistant sneaker so I can wear it in class and still be comfortable enough, which are the Elevate Sneakers (S$165). 

I did also try on the Elevate Walker (S$145) which are some sort of mules, but it didn't feel like it was as supportive as the lace-up ones, though it was the most formal of the lot. I might go back and get a pair of these later on though, since there are so many different awesome designs like a sparkly glitter one!

I actually collected my sneakers in February but waited to test the shoes out during my training in mid-March. because I wanted to see if they work in comparison to regular covered shoes. I'm happy to report that they did work very well. From the moment I put them on, I could feel the support and comfort they provide. The insoles are moderately cushioned and provide excellent arch support, which is a must-have for anyone who spends long hours on their feet. Here I am in action, in class.

Here's a close up look at the sneakers, which has the brand Sunnystep at the back of the shoes. I like how soft the shoes are, so they don't keep my feet in horizontal shape. The colour looks great too especially with jeans or light coloured clothes, but are not pure white (of which I already own a few).

Here it is the next day with another outfit. Very preppy chic with a denim jacket and skirt. I walked to office and out for lunch and the steps felt like nothing.

I have been wearing these shoes for a week now, especially for the two full days of training last week, and I can honestly say that my feet have never felt better. I no longer experience foot soreness at the end of the two days of training, which has made a huge difference to my energy levels. Who knew!

In conclusion, if you're in the market for a comfortable and supportive pair of shoes that will keep your feet happy and pain-free throughout the day, I highly recommend Sunnystep. They are worth every penny and have made a significant difference in my daily routine. I get a solid 5-star rating from me and will definitely be getting more pairs from them in the future.
