Have you taken a good hard look at your shoes lately? Fall is here, after all, and your summer sandals just won't do. Luckily, you don't have to sacrifice style for support. 

Yahoo Life asked New York-based podiatrist Polina Zaydenberg to pick the comfiest shoes she's been coveting as of late — and guess what? They're all available at Amazon, and they're all on sale.

Even if you're not ready for boots just yet, it'll feel great to enter the season with a new pair of sneakers or versatile flats. It's also an excellent opportunity to tend to those foot problems that might have been bothering you all summer, and are trickier to accommodate with sandals.

Save 43 percent: Akk Womens Walking Tennis Shoes

Dr. Zaydenberg loves these stylish kicks — and she's in good company. They have over 13,500 five-star reviews to back them up!

We're pretty sure the Akks are about to become your new favorite footwear. Lightweight, with just the right mix of give and support, they’re a pleasure to slip into. "The toe box is bendable, and looks accommodative, especially for people who have wide feet, bunions and hammertoes," explains Dr. Zaydenberg. "The shank looks supportive too.”

The cushy memory foam insole absorbs impact, while the flexible rubber sole feels like a dream. The soft mesh upper is happily breathable — no overly toasty toes here. And each shoe weighs only 0.8 pounds! 

These winners are available in 31 different colors, many of which are marked down to just $34.

Save 53 percent: Puma Women's California Sneaker

This sporty sneaker — over 50 percent off in a bunch of colors and sizes — is made entirely of buttery leather. The chunky style will win you points around town too. You'll want to wear these with everything: leggings, jeans, even skirts and dresses.

Dr. Zaydenberg is most intrigued by the shoe's thick base. "The platform is good for people with insertional Achilles tendonitis," Dr. Zaydenberg explained. 

In English: You're experiencing inflammation where your Achilles tendon inserts into the heel bone.

"Elevating your heel is relaxing the Achilles tendon, and it provides less tension in the area of concern," Dr. Zaydenberg adds. Choose from 15 colors!

Want to walk on clouds? These sneakers are the closest you'll get to that heavenly feeling. They have a thick, supportive platform and handy bungee cords — a feature that earned them a spot on Dr. Zaydenberg's most wanted list.

"The bungee cord accommodates wider feet," she explained. "It's also great for those with a larger instep."

“They’re supportive, accommodative, and the rubber sole is shock-absorbing," Dr. Zaydenberg shared. It’s a good fit for people with metatarsalgia and plantar fasciitis.”

Metatarsalgia, or inflammation at the ball of your foot, and plantar fasciitis (inflamed tissue at the bottom of the foot) can often be the most painful in the AM— so wear these on your morning walks!

Speaking of toes: Yours are sure to be happy tucked into these babies. Save $34 now!

Says Dr. Zaydenberg: "They’re excellent for people with peripheral vascular disease and different toe deformities."
