Back in May I went to the Blog On Conference in Manchester and I was the lucky winner of a pair of Vionic Shoes. They let me choose whatever shoes I wanted, and having tried on and loved their Midi slip-on shoes, I decided that they were the ones that I just had to have. The only problem was they had sold out of the leopard print in my size.
I chose instead a pair of their Denim Midi sneakers. I thought they’d look great with jeans and I could easily dress them up or down. Thankfully I was right on both counts. The Midi sneakers are one of their best sellers. They come in a range of different looks; leopard, snake, grey, denim, champagne and black. I still covert the leopard, but I’m very happy indeed with my denim pair.
The denim is dark blue, it works so well with my jeans, I am in love with how they look. They have a durable rubber sole and they’re really comfortable to wear as soon as you get them out of the box.
Vionic Shoes recommend that you wear your new shoes for just a few hours for the first few days to allow your feet to adjust to your new orthotic shoes. Within one to two weeks they should be fully broken in and they should be completely comfortable and supportive.
Their shoes are designed by podiatrists to give superior orthotic support as well as stability which helps realign the feet back to their natural position. This can help relieve common aches and pains, such as heel pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain and lower back pain. They may be orthotic shoes; but they look stylish and you’d never know to look at them that they’re primarily designed to do your feet and your posture the world of good.
As the owner of a bad back, I really notice the difference to my pain levels depending on what kind of shoes I’m wearing. I need lots of cushioning and I always wear flat shoes; which can make dressing up for a nice night out tricky. I’ve worn my Denim Midi Slip-On Sneakers on a few evenings out; not dressy affairs, but enough to warrant wearing a nice pair of shoes. These have really fit the bill, they look smart, I look smart, I’m very happy with them.
The Denim Midi Slip-On Sneakers cost £100 (at the time of writing they have been reduced to £70 in the sale). I will not rest until I get my hands on a pair of the leopard print Midis; but for now I am more than content with my lovely denim pair.
If you struggle with back pain; poor posture or conditions like plantar fasciitis, it can be hard to find fashionable shoes which are comfortable to wear. I can recommend Vionic Shoes, they’ve really helped me feel comfortable and look fashionable too.
