We love a good sale around here—especially when it means major discounts on a brand loved by both the royals and our editors. And that's *exactly* what we're getting from this rare Hoka sneakers sale, which has arrived just in time to get you prepped for warmer weather (and all the walking, running and working out you're gonna do). Tons of Hoka's lightweight, comfortable and super supportive running shoes (like this Mach 5 style$140, $112) are majorly marked down right now, but we have a feeling they're going to go quick.

In other words, drop everything and start shopping RN because, as PureWow Senior Commerce Editor Stephanie Maida will tell you, they're some of the most comfortable sneakers you can own. No, seriously, just read her full review, but hurry because her favorite Bondi 8 shoes ($165; $132), along with a bunch of other editor-beloved styles, are flying off the shelves. Lucky for you, we put in the work and chose four of our favorites you should sprint to snag RN.

Besides the fact these sneakers have the stamp of approval from a PureWow editor, you should buy them because they're new and improved with an extended heel and flared sole. This means "the base reaches past the upper part of the shoe (i.e., where the foot goes) to provide better balance and lots of stability," Maida explains in her review. So get ready to feel right at home in them as she and more than 5,000 buyers have. Not to mention, they've earned the American Podiatric Medical Association's Seal of Acceptance, so you can feel great knowing they're beneficial for foot health, too. That said, she also raves about their plush comfort and soft, bouncy feel that will make you want to go the extra mile. So, what are you waiting for?

According to the brand, these high-performance Mach 5 sneakers are designed to offer "a little more 'oomph' in both performance and ride." So it's no coincidence that they have a stripped-back creel mesh upper and lay-flat tongue that allows for a smoother ride (uh, run). Meanwhile, the symmetrical bed of cushions provides support in all the right places, and their low profile keeps your foot closer to the ground, so you can have an efficient push-off. Last, but certainly not least, the colorful sneakers feature a rubberized EVA outsole that provides excellent traction on all sorts of terrain—even if it's wet from spring showers. But here's why one buyer is a fan: "I wear these shoes every day, and I love the fact that I don't have to break them in. They are so comfortable and supportive."

One buyer called these all-gender shoes their "best investment yet," and we can totally see why. The kicks feature an Aquaguard zip to keep your toes dry in any weather, a cushy foam sole *and* a quick-lace system that you'll appreciate as you're rushing out the door. Not to mention their super cool, futuristic design that's totally on par with the chunky sneakers trend. We can keep going on and on about the shoe's other features, like the extended heel crash pad that ensures a smooth landing, but you probably want to add them to your cart already, right?

Commerce Editor Olivia Dubyak loved the women's version of these shoes for their durability and comfort on her bunioned feet during her half-marathon training (in fact, she gave them 97 out of 100 points in a PureWow100 review), and the men's version is sure to impress the guy in your life just the same. Take it from this happy buyer who writes, "These are like running on clouds that hug your feet. They have helped with my plantar fasciitis and have improved my running form. They are also fantastic for long hours on my feet working with less leg fatigue and back pain. Worth every penny." We'd say the lightweight, compression foam midsole is mostly to thank.
