In case you missed it, I was recently introduced to my new sole mates. They are supportive, versatile, and comfy, and I spend all day, every day with them — I’m talking, of course, about my Vionic footwear! I am so thankful for the biomechanical experts at Vionic who have designed sandals, sneakers, dress shoes, boots, casual shoes, and slippers that not only offer support but are also stylish and comfortable.
Below I’ll share my three favorite Vionic pairs to spend the day in — but first, let’s do a little recap on why this footwear brand is the bomb.
Structure And Support
Long gone are the days of wearing pancake-flat styles just because they’re cute. We need some support if we’re going to last 10 minutes in a pair of shoes, let alone all day! Supportive shoes do a lot of things—not least of which is help align your feet to reduce overpronation, which can lead to various conditions, such as plantar fasciitis (one of the most common causes of heel pain). Lucky for us, Vionic shoes, sandals, and slippers feature the brand’s signature Vio-Motion™Technology delivering Three-Zone Comfort. This can help relieve foot pain with its superior stability, arch support, and cushioning, so you can wear a pair comfortably, all day long.
From cute, supportive sandals and slippers to heels you can actually walk in and sneakers for workers who are on their feet all day, Vionic has a variety of shoes for every occasion, season, and time of day. Whether you prefer basic black or bright colors, Vionic has a stylish shoe for you. Because with Vionic, you never again have to sacrifice comfort and support for style.
Vionic footwear is designed to support you through every step of your busy day. Below are a few of my favorite pairs of Vionic shoes to wear any time of day. Throw on their sneakers to go exploring, slide into some sandals for dinner, then slip on the slippers at night.
Whether lacing up for your morning stroll, running errands, or exploring a new city, Vionic’s Fearless Active Sneaker features biomechanical footbeds to ensure comfort in every single step. These stylish women’s athletic shoes were made with lateral stability in mind to incorporate cross-body, side-to-side movements so they can take you from work to your workout.
I love the versatility of the basic black pair pictured above, but these comfy kicks also come in white, gray, and navy — all made with high-grade leather and breathable fabrics.
Removable EVA orthotic inserts provide all the arch support you need — especially for those who suffer from painful plantar fasciitis or flat feet. Secure support across the instep and heel is combined with just the right amount of toe-box wiggle room for performance and comfort day after day.
Rejuvenate Recovery Sandal
Comfortable sandals are a rare find, but comfy sandals that help your feet bounce back after a taxing activity are even rarer! Vionic stepped up the quality of trendy recovery slides with their Rejuvenate Recovery Sandals, which feature a winning combination of soft and supportive layers working together to generate active recovery support with full-body benefits. In fact, they’ve been independently lab tested to provide superior dynamic stability and propulsion, superior foot contact and pressure distribution—outperforming the competition so you can too. *Heeluxe study, 2022
They also have padde, adjustable-velcro straps to ensure the perfect fit — especially for those with narrow feet! Available in navy, turquoise (pictured above), black, and gray, these comfortable sandals are for both women and men. Slip them on after a run, tennis, or any physical activity, then wear them to the pool or on the hard surfaces around your house.
“I have fallen arches and posterior tibial tendinitis, and these are the most comfortable shoes I’ve worn in a long time. I can even stand for long periods of time in them. I like the pattern on the footbed; it massages and makes my feet feel energized.”— Liz, Baton Rouge
Gemma Mule Slipper
Slippers with arch support? Dreams do come true! Pamper your tootsies with these soft and comfy American Podiatric Medical Association–approved mule-style slippers. The Gemma Mule Slippers are part of Vionic’s collection of women’s orthotic slippers for plantar fasciitis relief, designed with Vionic’s podiatrist-developed Vio-Motion™ technology.
If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, foot pain, heel pain, or have flat feet, wearing these cute and comfy slippers indoors will help reduce your symptoms and provide you with cozy support every day. In addition to biomechanically contoured arch support, Gemma Mule Slippers have a deep heel cup to realign your stride and help prevent pronation.
The features don’t end there. Its midsole is made of flexible EVA to absorb shock and reduce stress on your feet, ankles, and knees. The footbed is treated with anti-bacterial, odor-resistant Ecofresh. An adjustable closure makes it easy to slide them on and off. They also have a durable rubber sole, so you can sneak out in your slippers to check the mail.
Made with faux fur or terrycloth, these comfortable plush slippers come in 11 colors and patterns. I’m a sucker for anything with a birds-of-paradise print, and I love the design of this modern mule slipper that is supportive yet stylish. I work from home, so I wear these bad boys around the house all day long, but they also feel nice to slip into after a long day in shoes.
