In case you missed it, I was recently introduced to my new unique friends. They’re supportive, versatile and comfortable, and I spend all day, every day in them – I’m talking, of course, about my Vionic shoes! I am so grateful to the biomechanics experts at Vionic who have designed sandals, sneakers, dress shoes, boots, casual shoes, and slippers that not only provide support but are also stylish and comfortable.
Below, I’ll share my three favorite Vionic pairs to get you through the day – but first, let’s recap why this shoe brand is the bomb.
Structure and support
Long gone are the days of wearing pancake-flat styles just because they’re cute. We need support if we want to last 10 minutes in a pair of shoes, let alone all day! Supportive shoes do a lot of things, not the least of which is to help align your feet to reduce overpronation, which can lead to various conditions, such as plantar fasciitis (one of the most common causes of heel pain). Luckily for us, Vionic shoes, sandals and slippers feature the brand’s Vio-Motion™ technology providing three-zone comfort. It can help relieve foot pain with its superior stability, arch support and cushioning, so you can wear a pair comfortably, all day long.
From cute supportive sandals and slippers to heels you can actually walk in and sneakers for workers who are on their feet all day, Vionic has a variety of shoes for every occasion, season and time of day. Whether you prefer basic black or bright colors, Vionic has a stylish shoe for you. Because with Vionic, you’ll never have to sacrifice comfort and support for style again.
All day comfort
Vionic shoes are designed to accompany you through every step of your busy day. Below are some of my favorite pairs of Vionic shoes to wear any time of the day. Put on their sneakers to explore, slip into sandals for dinner, then put on the slippers in the evening.
Whether it’s tying up for your morning stroll, running errands, or exploring a new city, Vionic’s Fearless Active sneakers feature biomechanical insoles to ensure comfort with every step. These stylish women’s athletic shoes were designed with lateral stability in mind to incorporate transverse and lateral movement so they can take you from work to your workout.
I love the versatility of the basic black pair pictured above, but these comfortable kicks also come in white, gray and navy – all made with high-quality leather and breathable fabrics.
Removable orthotic EVA inserts provide all the arch support you need, especially for those with painful plantar fasciitis or flat feet. Secure support across the instep and heel is combined with just the right amount of toe maneuvering room for day-in, day-out performance and comfort.
Rejuvenating recovery sandal
Comfortable sandals are rare, but comfortable sandals that help your feet bounce back after strenuous activity are even rarer! Vionic has upped the ante on fashionable recovery slides with its Rejuvenate recovery sandals, which feature a winning combination of soft and supportive layers working together to generate active recovery support with full-body benefits. In fact, they’ve been independently lab tested to deliver superior dynamic stability and propulsion, superior foot contact and pressure distribution, outperforming the competition so you can too. *Heeluxe study, 2022
They also have padded and adjustable velcro straps to ensure the perfect fit, especially for those with narrow feet! Available in navy, turquoise (pictured above), black and grey, these comfortable sandals are suitable for both women and men. Slip them on after a run, tennis or other physical activity, then wear them in the pool or on the hard surfaces around your home.
“I have fallen arches and posterior tibial tendonitis, and these are the most comfortable shoes I’ve worn in a long time. I can even stand for long periods of time. I like the pattern on the insole; it mass and makes my feet feel energized.

Slippers with arch support? Dreams come true! Pamper your feet with these soft and comfortable mule-style slippers approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association. The Gemma Mule slippers are part of Vionic’s collection of women’s orthopedic slippers for plantar fasciitis relief, designed with Vio-Motion™ technology developed by Vionic podiatrists.
If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, foot pain, heel pain, or have flat feet, wearing these cute and comfy indoor slippers will help reduce your symptoms and provide you with comfortable everyday support . Along with biomechanically contoured arch support, the Gemma Mule slippers have a deep heel cup to realign your stride and help prevent overpronation.
The features don’t stop there. Its midsole is made of flexible EVA to absorb shock and reduce stress on your feet, ankles and knees. The insole is treated with antibacterial and odor resistant Ecofresh. An adjustable closure makes them easy to put on and take off. They also have a durable rubber sole, so you can sneak into your slippers to check the mail.
Made of faux fur or terry cloth, these cozy plush slippers are available in 11 colors and patterns. I’m a sucker for anything with a bird of paradise print, and I love the design of this modern mule which is both comfortable and stylish. I work from home so I wear these bad boys around the house all day, but they’re also great to slip on after a long day in shoes.

Vionic guarantees comfort or your money back. Test drive your new shoes with Vionic’s 30-day wear test. All that support can be a shock to the system, so Vionic recommends introducing your feet into the shoes gradually, for a few hours at a time for the first few days to give your toes time to adjust. They should feel completely comfortable and supported within a week or two. And if you don’t love your new shoes, Vionic offers free returns and exchanges.
Above are just a few of my favorites, but Vionic has a whole collection of supportive and versatile sneakers, sandals and slippers designed to be worn all day for both men and women. Treat yourself to a pair today – your feet will thank you.
