Back in February I blogged about Vionic, a company that makes different type of shoes with a special support. I was delighted to receive a new pair of shoes from them*, the Elation Vionic Trainers. Have a look on their website (vionicshoes.co.uk) for more details.
Elation Vionic Trainers, like all Vionic shoes, were designed for pregnant women, who need the extra support. They are performance walking shoes and I can see why. They are so comfortable when walking. I only got them last week, so I didn’t have the chance to walk a lot in them, but I know from the first pair of Vionic shoes how comfortable and long lasting are. After half a year of using them often (although is not the only pair of trainers I use), they look like new. I’m impressed with the quality and by the looks of it, the Elation Vionic Trainers are of the same high standard.
Before trying these trainers, I’ve had Asics and Adidas. Unlike the lower end of the market (I tried those too), these trainers last for longer, so it makes sense (including financial sense) to invest in something that will keep for longer and are more comfortable. Now I have to say I would rather buy Vionic trainers because they are more comfortable.
The Elation’s insole, midsole, and outsole are created with a dual-density unit that helps dynamic function. The trainers have a memory foam for a more comfortable feel. It’s noticeable as soon as you try them on.
The shoes are made with man-made materials and textiles, hence something I’m happy to wear. If you followed my blog for a while you know I don’t wear real leather shoes/trainers. The footbed is the memory foam and the outsole is rubber.
As I mentioned in the previous post, the shoes have an innovative podiatrist-designed FMT Technology. That provides better orthotic support and stability, which helps to realign the feet back to their natural position.
Elation Vionic Trainers are available in 4 colour combinations: white silver, dark purple pink, blue yellow, and the colour I picked: black teal. They also come in half sizes and that is great, as not a lot of shoes are available in half sizes.
Also, Vionic offers a 30-Day Guarantee: “If you are not satisfied with the results within the first 30 days of wearing your new VIONIC shoes, you can return them for a full refund!”
