After months of loafing around the house in slippers and slides, we’d understand if you want to avoid returning to sky-high heels or blister-causing loafers for as long as possible. Still, with social calendars starting to fill up again, you might be looking for more presentable ways to dress comfortably. Even if just to wear for walks or park hangs with friends, a new pair of sneakers always makes anything else we wear feel fresher and more put-together. Like slippers, the best sneakers are also comfortable enough to keep our dogs from barking no matter how long we’re on our feet. Time and again, we — and other folks at New York — have praised Vejas for being stylish and supportive, which is why we wrote about how they’ve become the unofficial sneaker in our office (at least back when we went there every day). Our friends at the Cut called them the “best ethical, sustainable sneakers,” and Strategist editor Maxine Builder says, “They’re just chunky enough to look trendy without tipping into the orthopedic, and I can wear them and still feel professional.” Today, we found this pair of Veja’s popular Esplar style in a punchy (Hermès-esque) orange for 30 percent off. But if you want to shop around, we noticed a handful of other styles, including the V-10s and V-12s, on sale for the same discount.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
