What’s your #SoleStory?

Shoes, shoes, and more shoes! You should see my closet 😉 And, yes, you can tell my husband I do need every pair! What do you put first: style or comfort? I definitely put comfort first, but hate having to sacrifice style for that… and it can be hard to find both! I have plenty of friends that sacrifice comfort, too, just for style.

There’s a new brand in town that just launched its first line: Vionic fuses comfort and style for shoes that both look and feel good! I’ve talked many times here before about the importance of wearing shoes with the proper support and stability. I received a pair of sandals from Vionic and they are the most comfortable shoes I own (and cute, too!).

See? Just some normal (super cute) sequin flip flops…. but put them on your feet and you’ll never want to take them off! The new Spring/Summer 2014 line from Vionic includes sandals, wedges, and flats. The heels have 3 heights: demi-wedge, wedge, and platform. All kinds of colors and styles to choose from. I received the Catarina T-Strap Wedge in white and love them!

#solestory Vionic shoesI feel the difference when I wear these shoes with their orthotic support. They give relief and stability that helps realign the feet back to their natural position (which can help a whole host of problems!). Vionic shoes with Orthaheel Technology have success in reducing over-pronation, which can help relieve associated common aches and pains, such as heel pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain, and lower back pain. The Vionic wedge collection has an enhanced forefoot contour in each footbed for greater comfort, too.

I’m shopping the men’s collection next because my husband suffers from plantar fasciitis and these will be great for him!!! Plantar fasciitis is fairly common during pregnancy, too, so mamas take note! It’s NOT fun.

walks in the country

What’s my SoleStory? Why do Vionic shoes make my life better? For all those long walks with my 2 kids! We get outside for fresh air as often as possible and they LOVE to go on walks, the longer the better… to grandma’s house, to the park, around the block… in the stroller, in the wagon, racing for the finish line, or just strolling to enjoy the sunshine 🙂 You can VOTE for my entry here!
