Clogs might have been an early 2000s staple, but the trend is certainly not content to stay there — in fact, the style has found its way back into our closets, and it's arguably bigger than ever. These cool new clogs aren't the chunky-heeled styles of the early aughts — these are minimal, sleek, and dare we say, even pretty cool.

One pair that's been on our (and thousands of Amazon shoppers) radar? The Oofos Unisex OOCloog. It's a funky name for a funky shoe, though it certainly has plenty to love about it. For starters, it's made of a smooth, cloud-like foam footbed that absorbs over 37 percent more impact than traditional foam. It even has extra arch support.

The clogs start at just $70, and if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

It's not a gimmick: In fact, every single Oofos style carries the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance.

"The toe box is accommodative and the sole is propulsive, which helps it improve the quality of your gait," shared NYC-based podiatrist Dr. Polina Zaydenberg, who is Board-certified by the American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry in Prevention and Treatment of Diabetic Foot Wounds and in Diabetic Footwear. "It can help those with arthritic conditions of the midfoot and metatarsalgia."

The shoes are made with recovery in mind: They help decrease energy exertion, and they cradle your foot in a cushioned, cloud-like dream. Plus, they're unisex!

"I'm an ICU nurse and I'm on my feet for most of my 13 hour shifts," shared one of the 5,800 five-star reviewers. "I developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot. The pain was terrible and I was limping out of work each day. I tried new balance running shoes, professional Crocks, Danskos, and Alegria. Nothing helped. So I gave Oofos a try in a last-ditch effort. These are miracle shoes! Wore them a whole shift and while I still had a bit of heel pain I wasn't limping. Started wearing them all the time and now the plantar fasciitis is gone! I've been singing their praises to my fellow nurses and soon my whole unit will be in them."

Another nurse agreed — they're like walking on clouds!

"I am a nurse who works 12-hour shifts, mostly on my feet," she wrote. "In addition, I have huge, enormous bunions. Regular clogs do not work for me and I was tired of wearing holes in my sneakers from my bunions. These are perfect!"

They just might be life-changing. Shared one happy reviewer:

"I have endured plantar fasciitis for 10 months. In addition, I have calcaneus bursitis. Within three days of buying the shoes my pain was decreased by over 50 percent. I had even bought the personalized orthotics which didn't help as much as these shoes. They are absolutely the best thing I ever bought for my poor foot."

Plus, even if you're not the biggest fan of clogs, you can still reap the benefits of these ridiculously comfy shoes. The style is also available in a sneaker and slide version, too.

The sneakers — which Oofos dubbed "low shoes" — boast the same Oofoam sole that absorbs more impact than traditional foams. The style cradles and supports the arch, and it helps reduce the compression typically felt in the feet. It's the perfect shoe to wear if you're on your feet all day, or just want to enjoy a pain-free stroll.

"I suffer from heel pain, and before these shoes you could often find me icing my heels," a shopper shared. "These shoes are so comfortable and so well made. The arch of my foot lands on the elevated portion of the shoe which keeps the pressure off of the heel. Genius! They are also easy to clean and breathable."

More into slides? These have that delicious cushiony sole and are designed to alleviate the stress on sore feet, knees and your lower back. They're far from your average flip-flops!

"I have neuropathy, and I'm flat-footed with serious bunions," shared one of over 13,800 five-star shoppers. "My feet gave been in constant pain for at least six years now. These sandals have made a remarkable difference. After a day of wearing these, I have very little pain. This is a miracle for me. These sandals are incredibly supportive and hug my feet in all the right places. The spasms in my feet and calves have also subsided."
