These Seriously Stylish Shoes Were Actually Designed by Podiatrists
Isn’t it the worst when you find a cute pair of shoes, but you can only wear them for five minutes at a time because they’re sooo uncomfortable? Well, allow us to introduce you to Vionic, our new favorite shoe obsession. Vionic shoes have a secret: They’re designed by podiatrists. And yes, they’re actually super cute and super comfortable.
Vionic uses orthaheel technology to help promote better alignment. Every pair offers balance, stability, and support. Because let’s face it—we’ve probably all had a pair of super comfy kicks that weren’t that cute. (Looking at you, Crocs.) But now that we can get the magical combo of fashion and comfort in one shoe, we can look good and keep our feet healthy. Plus, with Vionic, heels don’t have to be the worst. In fact, there are tons of styles—including boots, booties, heels, flats, wedges, sneakers, and sandals — to choose from.
We spoke to Dr. Jackie Sutera, DPM, an expert at the Vionic innovation lab. She gave us the scoop on what to expect from the shoes. “Vionic shoes are high-quality and fashion-forward,” Dr. Sutera told HelloGiggles. “Expect shoes that are cute and good for you.”
You can go for a pair of tall boots…
…or short boots.
Why not snuggle into a cozy pair of smoking slippers?
If you’re into heels, these are SO fun.
This style is classic.
And these Oxfords-with-a-twist are just downright fun.
No matter which pair you choose, they’re ~all~ equally comfortable—yes, even the heels. “Even elevated styles such as wedges and kitten heels that are about 2 inches are very comfortable,” Dr. Sutera told us. “I can wear them for a full work day and feel great! Literally all day.”
Wearing the right shoes is so important for our bodies. “The feet are the foundation of our body and when your feet are in alignment, this helps your ankles, knees, hips, and back to also be in better alignment,” said Dr. Sutera. So, what can we expect when we buy a pair of Vionic shoes? “People can expect to feel their feet go into a better alignment immediately!”
