It’s wonderful when you know a brand and they ask you to review one of their products. This is what happened with my new Vionic Shoes. After looking on their website (again), I’ve picked a pair of trainers*. You might think, as I did, that well… they are trainers, how more comfortable can they be, compared to other well known brands. I was very surprised to discover that they, in fact, are much more comfortable. If you want to see more of their range, have a look at their website (vionicshoes.co.uk).
First of all, what makes Vionic Shoes special?
All their shoes, including high heels, have a special support. This makes you feel like you are walking on a soft surface, like sand, even if you are walking on asphalt. The difference between the Vionic trainers and my regular trainers is amazing. It feels like I’m walking on small comfy cushions. Also, the shoe “hugs” the foot. That is another thing I love, as, even in trainers, I might have wobbly ankles, a reminiscence from when I did ballroom dancing.
This kind of support is very important for women who are pregnant. The swelling of the feet can lead to flat feet, so it’s quite important to take extra care in this situation. Vionic shoes have an unique FMT Technology that supports you from the ground up. It re-aligns the foot to its natural position to help prevent with issues like flat feet.
Vionic was established in 1979 by renowned podiatrist Phillip Vasyli. From experience in working with patients, he invented an option that would evolve into the award-winning FMT Technology orthotic. The great thing is that the choice is varied, there are trainers, flat and high heeled shoes, boots, sandals, and slippers. Many VIONIC shoes have the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance. This means that each product is reviewed by a group of APMA podiatrists to ensure the quality and efficiency.
I was impressed with my trainers. When it will be a bit warmer, I’m going to do a bit of running in them. They feel so much better than the other pairs I had.
If you want to buy a pair of Vionic shoes, you can do that online or from one of their many stockists, all over the UK.
