Every season we see cute summer sandals… only to discover that they hurt like hell!
If you have not discovered VIONIC Shoes (featured on the May 2018 cover of Oprah magazine), AND you suffer with feet issues like me, you might want to take a look at this brand for pronation sandals.
Here is my (very) short foot story…
I was born with club feet, had surgery for a heel cord issue at 6, have broken/sprained my feet numerous times and as a result have suffered a lifetime of feet issues. I was resigned to believe that I would forever be subject to footwear that ‘got me by’ vs looked great/were appropriate for the outfit.
After yet another trip to the Podiatrist with foot pain, I was diagnosed with tibial tendonitis.
As we worked through my options, I was also given a prescription for ‘arch support shoes with good pronation control’ – as I stared at the paper, I felt doomed to granny shoes… uggghhhh!
Dreading it, I walked into my local shoe store with prescription in hand, only to discover VIONIC…
I was in L-O-V-E! Without getting into too much techno-doctor-speak, VIONIC lifts my arch and puts my foot in better alignment… basically a built in orthotic without the orthotic.
VIONIC offers quite the variety of really great/cute/trendy/on-point pronation sandals and shoes…
Besides sandals VIONIC offers heels, wedges, loafers, boots, casual & active sneakers, slippers and even beachy flip-flops!
With styles offered for both Men and Women, VIONIC is the mission of renowned podiatrist Phillip Vasyli, a pioneer and innovator in the field of lower-limb biomechanics.
His goal was to make orthotic treatment more affordable and accessible to people in need of pain relief.
Early in his career, Vasyli realized that the only treatment options for many common foot-related ailments, like plantar fasciitis or over-pronation, were costly and time-consuming. In response to the overwhelming demand for a solution, he invented one of the first heat-moldable orthotics, a low-cost option that allowed patients to walk out of his practice feeling better than when they’d come in.
This philosophy laid the groundwork for the award-winning Orthaheel orthotic, the world’s first and only true orthotic available without a doctor’s prescription. BRAVO Dr. Vasyli!
