Slip On Athletic Shoes that Stays Put
I was skeptical to try a new athletic shoe that did not lace-up. I mean, how could it work? When I’m walking or dancing it up in Zumba, wasn’t my heel going to slip out all the time? However, I’m glad I tried Therafit’s Dawn slip on athletic shoes. They are quick and easy to put on and stay on through my whole workout.

A Supportive Athletic Shoe
One thing I can always count on with Therafit is a comfortable and supportive shoe. The Dawn Athletic shoes fall under the Therafit shoes that are fully American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) approved. This seal of approval recognizes products that have been found beneficial to foot health. I love the shock-absorbing midsoles because I feel like I’m walking on memory foam.
My feet love the wonderful arch support. It is great for someone with feet like mine. I had incredible high arches before my final pregnancy when they collapsed. I’m now considered to have flat feet. So I need superior arch support to help my feet get back into shape pain-free. I think the deep heel cups really help with these shoes. Not only do they cradle my foot and support my ankle, but they also help keep these slip on shoes, well, on.
Customizing My Comfort
The personal comfort adapters, as Therafit calls them, are one of my favorite things about their shoes. I have figured out that I love having the middle support rod removed from my shoes. It gives me the right amount of support and give while wearing these. I’m not a runner, but I will jog sometimes and even with the heavier impact the slight give by removing the middle rod gives the perfect bounce-back to comfort the heel of my foot.

Style and Function
Aren’t they pretty? Most of my streamer setup is all black and pink. And a lot of my athletic gear happens to be the same colors. I never thought of myself as being “into” pink but it has found its way into my wardrobe and I love it. Plus, the mesh upper fabric gives the shoes that athletic look and makes the shoes very breathable. I love the intricate suede accents and the pink and black cord ties the pink in without it looking gaudy or overwhelming.
The white stripe of the outer soles gives the shoes a bit of flash. The treads on the bottom highlight the shape and flexibility of these lightweight shoes. I found the grip perfect for yoga on slippery floors and jogging. That round circle? Perfect for cushioning and supporting the ball of my foot. Plus. I think they just look kind of cool too.
Slip On Athletic Shoes
So, my big question was, how can athletic shoes be slip-ons? With all the activity I do in them, my heels are going to be in and out constantly, right? Thankfully, these shoes proved me wrong.
That may not be the most interesting photo above, I admit. But you see that U-shape right at the back? That keeps these shoes on! That whole upper collar is stretchy and soft, but strong enough to hold the shoes in place. There is a back pull tab to help you get the shoes on, as they, at first, seem quite tight. And they need to be! This may make the shoe seem too small at first, but I assure you, they fit true to size.
And the snug fit around that top collar but in a very comfortable way. I only had to wear them for about 5 minutes the very first time before the feeling of tightness eased and they seemed to fit like a glove.
Working Out in Comfort
Did you know these shoes have 7 layers in them? These provide comfort and support. I didn’t know that! But the proof is in the wearing. I have been able to do yoga, go on walks and jogs, play some BeatSaber, and chase the kids all around wearing the athletic shoes. And I have never been more comfortable. I have been through lots of athletic shoes from generic and name brands, and these are by far my favorite. And as a busy mom of three, they’re also great when I need to just throw on a pair when my life is running hectic. USE CODE: MOM25 to get 25% off any regularly priced shoes!
