Some days, the idea of leaving the house in anything other than a hoodie and sweats seems like an actual nightmare. However, once in a while comes the urge to put on a head-turning outfit, even if the only event on your calendar is walking your dog. On a stroll with her pup, Tank, Sydney Sweeney embraced the spring-to-winter transition in a knit beige shorts set and long off-white coat. But the star of the outfit? Her pink-soled, chunky sneakers.

A tiny bit of Internet digging can tell you that the ugly-cute shoes in question are the Sorel Kinetic Breakthru Tech Lace sneaker (Buy It, $130, zappos.com), a lightweight walking shoe that customers say are as comfortable as they are cool. With a breathable, porous exterior and lightly padded sole, the Kinetic Breakthrus provide a cushioned sensation and springy bounce with each step. The shoes' scalloped bottoms also add grip and stability, making them a great choice for trail walking and hiking as well. Plus, with a thick, 1-inch platform, these kicks will give you enough height to make everyone around stand up a little bit straighter. (Pssst: Here are some polishes to copy Sydney Sweeney's nails.)

Not to mention, three cute color schemes including Tranquil yellow/chalk, white/chalk, and Sydney's choice, chalk/eraser pink add flair to an off-duty look, especially as the weather warms up (and everyone stops wearing black all the time). But the best part? Other shoppers can confirm that these trendy platforms are worth the investment.

One customer who got these before a trip to Disney World (i.e. a ton of walking from ride to ride) said these shoes were comfortable right out of the box. Another shopper who rarely ever buys shoes online made an exception for the Kinetic Breakthroughs — and wasn't disappointed. "The quality is excellent — very well constructed," they wrote, adding,"They are very lightweight and look great." (Want more comfy shoe recs? These are some of the best shoes for walking.)

Take it from Sydney: A little color and an eye-catching shoe can go a long way in transforming a look from basic to photo-worthy. And with these Sorel sneakers, you don't need to compromise on comfort. Shop all three color combos on zappos.com while they're still in stock and enjoy the extra inches.
