If your feet have never known the bliss of slipping into Vionic shoes, they’re in for a treat. Right now there’s an amazing sale on the Vionic thong sandal known as the Tide Patty, and it’s too good to pass up—the shoes are just $37 from the usual price of $63. But don’t dilly dally, they’re selling out fast.

Vionic is a brand known for the marriage of cuteness and comfort. The design of its shoes is based on an intricate understanding of body mechanics, so you get arch support, a comfortably cradled heel, and plenty of room for toes to do their thing.

This sale on Vionic’s thong comes just as warmer temps are settling in and folks are starting to think about summer days. But even right now, these Vionics can hep you out. They’re a perfect house shoe, especially if you have any sort of chronic foot pain.

With so much going on right now, it’s easy to forget to take care of your own basic needs—like foot health. If you tend to have achey feet, going barefoot all the time (and face it, a lot of us are at home doing just that) is not necessarily a good idea.

We spoke with podiatrist Dr. Jackie Sutera for more: “When walking barefoot on hardwood, cement, stone, or ceramic tile, there is really nothing to absorb the shock between you and the ground,” says the doctor. “Over time, this can deteriorate your fat pad—the foot’s natural cushion. Once this fat pad degenerates, it’s gone forever. And without it, you are literally walking or running on skin and bone.”

Yikes! That’s a pretty compelling argument for some comfy, padded easy-on, easy-off shoes to wear in and around your home. And there’s nothing we can think of better than these Visios—made to protect the delicate parts of the feet Dr. Sutera indicates are at risk.

With a jersey-covered padded lining over a podiatrist-designed orthotic footbed, these unassuming sandals are actually heroes for feet, knees, hips, and backs. In whole sizes from 5 to 12, the Vionic Thong comes in eight very wearable colors, from neutrals like “greige” and black, to soft pastels, including a rosy pink and a lilac purple.

Says one of many rave reviewers, “I always find Vionic true to size. The Tide [Patty] is my summer go-to—cool and comfortable, hard-wearing, and classy. The little buckle detail is a sweet decorative touch.”

Normally priced at $63, this super-supportive shoe is, for a short time, down to just $37. Effuses another fan, who recently purchased her fourth color (navy, after black, pink, and purple): “Love the Tide Patty!”

We think you will too.
