What is the one piece of clothing most people put on every single day? Shoes!!
What happens when shoes don’t fit properly or uncomfortable to wear? Your miserable!!
I am always on the outlook for a really great pair of walking shoes. My biggest complaint with most companies is that they do not provide half sizes and my feet are a true half size. A size 8 is too small with my toes all cramped up and a size 9 is too big which causes the shoes to slip on my heel.
I was really excited when Te’sa asked if I wanted to receive for review, Vionic Shoes with Orthaheel Technology, because they do come in half sizes. My feet are so happy in the 8 1/2’s. My toes have room to wiggle, while they stay in place on my heel.
One of the first things I noticed about these Zen Walkers when I pulled them from the box is how light they are. I have worn shoes before with special heel designs but the shoes have always been on the heavy side. These shoes are the exact opposite.
I slipped them on my feet and was immediately impressed with the support in the arch of my foot. They have been designed with Orthaheel Technology, a podiatrist designed technology, which helps reduce your foot rolling inward and flattening out. This shoes may help with the pain associated with heel pain, back pain, knee pain and shin pain among others.
The Vionic Shoes with Orthaheel Technology are the only shoes recommended by both the American Podiatric Association and the renowned medical doctor, Andrew Weil M.D.
At this point in Michigan I have only been able to wear them around the house and on the treadmill, but I have to say they are extremely comfortable. Can’t wait to be able to test them outdoors.
The best endorsement came from my 10 year old granddaughter who said to me, “they are really cool.” What more could you ask for?
Vionic is also holding a Walkabout to help improve physical and emotional well being. You can visit the site to sign a pledge to walk everyday and Vionic will send a little encouragement each week. It’s great motivation and perfect as we enter into spring.
