How often do you have to choose between being comfortable and looking stylish? The most fashion-forward shoes closely resemble torture devices: they pinch your toes and give you blisters, and you regret wearing them almost as soon as you put them on. Conversely, the plushest footwear in your closet might feel good, but they’re not exactly doing much for you in the style department.
Vionic, currently offering 40 percent off select summer styles, is designed to bridge the gap between style and comfort. The brand is behind footwear that doesn’t just look good, it feels good. Podiatrists love Vionic shoes for their support, cushioning and how they cradle your foot with comfort.
In fact, NYC-based podiatrist Jacqueline Sutera loves Vionic slippers and slip-ons so much, she recommends wearing them in the house as well.
“When walking barefoot on hardwood, cement, stone or ceramic tile, there is really nothing to absorb the shock between you and the ground,” says Dr. Sutera. “Over time, this behavior can deteriorate your fat pad, which serves as the foot’s natural cushion. Without this fat, you are literally walking or running on skin and bone.”
Yikes! If your feet have never known the cushy comfort of a pair of Vionic shoes, you’re in luck: Check out the massive sale here. Better hurry, though: Sizes are going fast.
