It is no secret that I can’t wear high heels. Likewise it is no secret that I wear my shoes out faster than most people. As a result I often have shoe envy. I see my friends walking tall in beautiful, classy heels and cry a little. Ok crying maybe going a bit far but in the past I have looked down at my feet and sighed. Over the years I have also spent so much money on very expensive shoes only to wear them once before adding them to the back of my wardrobe. However, I now have the answer in Vionic footwear.
The reason for being heavy on shoes is due to over pronation. This basically means that I don’t distribute my weight through my feet evenly. This is due to having flat feet. Flat feet also make my feet ache, they ache under the arch and often on the ball of my feet. Over the years I realised that I needed orthotics to help my poor feet. However switching orthotics everytime I change my shoes is a nuisance.
Then I discovered Vionic shoes. They manage to be pretty, fashionable shoes with the support built into the shoe. It is a game changer for me. All of these shoes from the heels, to slippers to active shoes has FMT Technology. This means that they are biomechanically designed to hug your arches and support natural alignment. You would not know this from just looking at them. They look no different and they certainly compete on the style factor like those shoes languishing in my wardrobe.
The Sterling Boots come in both black and saddle and fit like a glove. Seriously, I popped them on and decided to give them the real test of time. I usually have aching feet after a few hours but I wore these all day with no problems. They fitted really well and they were so comfy.
How lovely do these look? It is a big step forward to find Vionic Shoes as historically I thought I would struggle to find shoes that I actually visually liked, but offered the support I know I need. These will never be hidden away at the back of my wardrobe as an impulse purchase that I regret. These will be the ones I kick on and off with ease. At 42 I am not ready for shoes that are purely functional. I want heels, I want knee high boots that I can wear to the pub. I want heels that I can dance in with a glass of prosecco in hand.
Here you can see just why they work:
My children have also inherited my flat feet. Dylan and Erin are both under podiatry and both wear orthotics. I am now more confident that as they grow they will have more choice than I previously had. They won’t force their feet into ill fitting shoes because Vionic Shoes will give them choice and style.
Which pair of Vionic’s would you choose to wear?
