After six months of almost exclusively wearing slippers, flip flops, or no shoes at all, our feet are killing us. We totally should’ve taken the experts’ advice to stop going barefoot at home months ago but alas, we didn’t. So we found ourselves Googling ‘podiatrist-approved shoes’ in an effort to save our aching arches. Which is how we came across Vionic, a supportive shoe brand founded by a podiatrist.
And before you ask, no, they’re not those clunky sneakers your grandma’s doctor told her to wear. Vionic boasts a range of sneakers, boots, flats and more that are so stylish, they’ve been spotted on celebs like Kristin Cavallari, Alexa Chung and even Oprah. In fact, the former queen of daytime TV loves the brand’s comfy shoes so much, she’s featured them on her Favorite Things list four times. That’s practically unheard of.
Wanna see what all the hype is about? Shop five of our favorite pairs below.
1. Alaina Sock Sneaker
These sleek sneaks are equipped with Vionic’s signature Orthaheel insole which provides arch support and ensures your feet stay in their natural alignment.
2. Willa Slip on Flat
Finally, a pair of loafers that doesn’t make us want to reach for the bottle of Advil after wearing them for a few hours.
3. Kaylee Water Resistant Bootie
The sturdy block heel and supportive footbed make these the most comfortable booties you’ll ever wear.
4. Demetra Sneaker
Once you see how cushioned and easy to slip on these are, they’ll earn the number one spot in your shoe rotation.
5. Gemma Slipper
The bad news? Most slippers have little-to-no support for your feet. The good news? These aren’t like most slippers.
