Fashionable shoes and comfort don't always go hand-in-hand. You either have cute shoes that hurt or ugly ones that are comfortable. Well, that's how it used to be. Now both fashion and comfort have merged into a beautiful new line called Vionic.
Founded on a shared vision of providing solutions to help individuals lead healthier, active lifestyles, the Vionic team is made up of experts specializing in the field of health and biomechanics. This includes Philip Vasyli, podiatrist and founder of Orthaheel Technology; David Armstrong, professor of Surgery Director of Lower Extremity Research; Brian Hoke, a Sports Clinincal Specialist and Dr. Andrew Weil, a leader in the field of integrative nutrition.
At the event it was really interesting to hear from Philip Vasyli who spoke of the science in Orathaheel Technology that provides relief with an enhanced forefoot contour, realignment, stability with a deep heel cup and support with an innovative footbed. They also provide natural relief that helps to reduce over-pronation, which is associated with pain. Not your typical orthodontics, the supportive footbed is concealed within on-trend and modern designs including flip flops, sneakers, ballet flats and even wedges!
At the preview, I loved checking out some of their current and new designs with some of my favorites being the Olivia Leather Flat, Chloe Wedge and the Ava Mary Jane that all received the APMA Seal of Acceptance as well as constructed to provide ultimate support. This includes support to the feet to help realign the lower legs, reducing over-pronation and associated aches and pains.
Other favorites for fall and winter include the cute Stacey Bootie and the casual Kerstin Slingback Mule. They also have shoes for men with some of our favorites being the Walker Shoe and the Whistler Slipper that would be ideal for the holidays.
An informative afternoon, I learned that shoes no longer have to hurt and that style and science have finally found a way to meld together in quiet a beautiful (and fashionable!) way.
