If there’s anyone you can trust when it comes to suggesting comfortable, stylish and cool travel shoes, it’s Oprah Winfrey. After all, she is a pretty frequent flier.
This year it appears the queen of daytime television has fallen head over heels for Vionic, a shoe company that creates beautiful styles using high-tech fabrics meant to make your traveling feet feel comfortable all day long.
“Feet were designed to walk on soft, natural elements like soil and sand, not the hard, flat man-made surfaces that make up so much of our modern world,” Vionic explained on its site. “Our shoes and sandals hug your arches like a natural footprint, giving you all-day support.”
Oprah has been photographed in the brand’s espadrille-sneaker hybrid, which comes complete with orthopedic support. And now, for the second time this year, Oprah graced the pages of her O Magazine wearing Vionic’s Valeri Espadrille Flat.
The shoes, Vionic explained, come with stretch fabric uppers and are an easy slip-on style perfect for warmer destinations.
The shoe also comes with a removable, microfiber-lined EVA footbed that provides additional support and a durable outer sole that will last through all your travels. Best of all, the shoe weighs just 6 oz, meaning it will barely make a dent in your luggage.

Vionic also has a range of other styles including sneakers, booties, wedges and heels, which Oprah may or may not love, too.
