When Oprah shares her Favorite Things, we listen. And when a product manages to make it onto Oprah's list multiple times? We buy. Such is the case with Vionic shoes, the comfy footwear that comes in a vast range of styles, from sandals to sneakers to wedge pumps. Now is the perfect time to try a pair (or three), because Vionic is running a sale with discounts of up to 40 percent!

What's so special about Vionic shoes? Well, the company was founded by an actual podiatrist. Back in 1979, Dr. Phillip Vasyli set out to create footwear that provided exceptional support and comfort. Today his brand is at the top of the heap when it comes to wear-all-day, walkable shoes.

Vionic are certified by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). Melissa Lockwood, DPM, a podiatrist at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates, in Bloomington, Illinois, told Yahoo Life that getting approved is no easy feat. "They run rigorous tests before they apply the seal of acceptance,” she says.

You can find tons of Vionic sale shoes on the brand's website or at Amazon. We'll get you started with the standouts. You're going to want to act fast on this sale, though; sizes and colors are selling out.

These sneakers are made of eco-friendly cotton canvas and Vio-Motion technology, which provides stability, arch support and cushioning with every stride.

Wrote one satisfied shopper: "I am so pleased with these shoes. Straight out of the box they felt like they were custom-made for my feet. They give support exactly where it's needed, so my feet are not aching at the end of the day. The rubber sole provides excellent grip when walking, the canvas is very breathable, and I am really impressed with how comfortable and cute they are."

Easy wedge slip-ons, for when you want to create a long leg line, in a shade that's versatile and feminine. Save $20 on this cushy, pretty shoe, which delivers the "three-zone comfort" Vionic is known for.

One reviewer said: "I appreciate the comfort in these shoes so much! Very cushy and because they have a wedge, I feel like they offer a little more style than a true flat. I love that they are leather, with a little bit of suede around the heel.... This is my second pair so I would say I really like them. I also have a bit of a bunion on my right foot but these shoes do not cut into that area — there is enough coverage to get my foot in, which is helpful."

Dress these up or down; they work for just about any occasion. The Abyss Dinora are blissfully lightweight, so you can easily pack them for a weekend getaway or toss them in your work bag after your commute. Prices vary by size.

Raved one customer: "These shoes are super supportive and comfy. I've gotten a lot of compliments on them. People want to know where I got them. Surprisingly, I can actually wear them with more outfits than I expected to. They look great with work attire or even blue jeans. Even though they are pretty white, they do not attract dirt very much at all. These are my new favorite shoes!"
