I am going to preface my story with the fact that I will always choose comfort over style when it comes to shoes. ALWAYS. I just cannot stand to have uncomfortable shoes on. I can’t even function in them. Jimmy Choos, Manolo Blahniks? No thank you. Unless they’re very comfortable flats.
It’s now post-Memorial Day weekend and if you haven’t pulled out the sandals, wedges and flip flops, then now is the time to get on that. I do get a bit jealous when I see a cute pair of heeled sandals in a store or on someone and then I have to remind myself that I can’t wear them or I will be in pain. And as a girl, that kinda stinks.
But not anymore. I was introduced to Vionic shoes very recently. Vionic shoes are podiatrist-designed with innovative Orthaheel Technology, providing superior orthotic support, relief and stability which helps realign the feet back to their natural position. Research has shown Orthaheel Technology’s success in reducing overpronation, which can help relieve associated common aches and pains, such as heel pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain and lower back pain. They have even received the APMA (American Podiatric Medical Association) Seal of Acceptance.
I ordered a pair of the Havana Sandals in a metallic gold color and I already stepped out in them this weekend over the Memorial Day holiday. I wore them to a BBQ with a sundress (it was actually hot enough out!) and casually the next day playing with my kids in the yard. It was great spending time with my family but even better that I was able to look good and be comfortable at the same time. This may have been the first time ever that I was able to wear a brand new pair of shoes and not suffer blisters or chafing of any kind.
Check out the entire line of Vionic shoes here. I hope you love them as much as I do! Many of these styles would be great for family vacations, trips to theme parks (where you do a TON of walking). And they have men’s shoes too! With Father’s Day coming up, a pair of comfortable new sandals or boating shoes would make a great gift!
