Don’t let television images of heel clad fashionistas on these New York streets fool you! We live in a walking city and a majority of us wear our comfiest shoes from point A to point B. I live for a cute outfit and a high heel moment but when running to press appointments and meetings, comfort is key. I recently acquired a pair of the comfiest slip-on sneakers from Vionic that are more fashionable and comfortable than my gym sneakers.
These are my first pair of shoes from Vionic, a brand I’ve heard about multiple times but never tried. I’ve been living in the Midi Perf Slip-On Sneakers since getting them. The shoes are well made and provide hours of comfort thanks to the removable microfiber-covered EVA orthotic insert. That’s right, I said orthotic. This ain’t your mama’s orthotic either. These are functional shoes that molded to my feet after several wears.
I broke my fibula and tore all the ligaments in my left ankle a few years back. Since then, my gait has been a little off thanks to a plate and screws in my leg. I used to get swollen ankles after hours on my feet but these shoes have made a big difference and have become one of my go-to shoes for swollen feet. Better yet, I don’t get the swelling I normally get in my other shoes thanks because of the orthotic insert. I’m actually thinking of getting one more pair in a more neutral color.
I wore the Vionic Midi Perf Slip-On Sneakers a few days ago and got caught in the rain. I was apprehensive about my feet getting wet. The shoes dried almost instantly and they still look pretty new. We’re heading to France next month for 20-days of glorious vacation and I’m definitely bringing these along to make it easier for me to get in and out of my travel shoes during airport security checkpoints.
The Vionic Midi Perf Slip-On Sneakers come in six gorgeous colors with a size range of 5-12. They retails for $129.
