DISCOVER THE POWER OF VIONIC
OUR RAVING FANS SHARE HOW VIONIC SHOES HAVE CHANGED THEIR LIVES.
Five years ago I was working at a high school with a population of 2,000 students. The building I was working in went through an asbestos abatement which meant the removal of old tile flooring. The removal of the tile meant the building I was in had concrete flooring for the last 3 months of the Spring semester. Those of you familiar with Spring semesters in public schools, that is when state assessments take place. Not paying much attention to the flooring I walked the floors with non supportive shoes and within 2 weeks had a serious case of plantar fascitis. Visited a podiatrist, had cortisone shot injections and which turned out to be a temporary fix. I continued to have pain in my right foot but more specifically, arch pain. In October I went through a procedure of plasma shots to my arch due to the damage to the ligaments. While recovering I discovered Dr. Weils web page and ordered my first Vionic shoes. What a difference those shoes made to both my feet. I could walk with no pain and was able to go back to my walking regime for exercise. Since then I have purchased Vionic flip flops, flat shoes and a few pairs of tennis shoes. My feet and I thank Vionic for the help in the healing process. My last visit to the podiatrist was right before I purchased my first Vionics. My pain was still present, and he had recommended another bout of plasma shots for my arch. I can say that thanks to Vionic I have not needed that procedure again. Thanks Vionic for giving me back my feet. My fear is not being able to walk with comfort, but that certainly is not the case now.
I had heel pain & plantar fasciitis. I went to several Drs. for help with custom made insoles, boot & shots, but nothing helped until I started wearing Vionic shoes. They are the only shoes that I buy to wear now!
I first found the former "Orthoheel" at my podiatrist five+years ago. I have worn almost no other shoe since. Worn them summer,fall, winter, spring. Worn in Europe, South America and all over the U.S. Now my husband who started to have foot pain is wearing the shoes I gave him as a gift. They are wonderful!
I cannot believe these shoes. I have had nerve damage and foot pain since I had chemo seven years ago. I was also on a beta blocker that added to the neuropathy. I can actually tell a huge difference in my feet after one month of wearing your shoes. I am, a believer and a customer for life. Thank you for your commitment to research, quality and affordability. Great job!!!!
I have fibromyalgia and before I bought my first pair of Vionic shoes, walking was extremely uncomfortable. I tried every "walking" shoe out there, including GravityDefyers. There is no brand of shoes in the world better for me to wear! Thanks to the "magic" insoles I have better balance, no pain from neuropathy, and the ability to move more all day long. They're especially good for my Zumba classes! Vionics offer more foot support than other pair I've tried. I used to have high arches; through the years I developed more pain and when I worked at a job requiring me to stand for 8+ hours a day my arches took a direct hit. I thought I'd have to live with severe foot pain for the rest of my life. Enter Vionic, exit foot pain! Thank you, Vionic, for changing my life and improving my fitness! Before I bought my first pair of Vionic shoes I could not tolerate having shoes on my feet for more than 8 hours. Now, I put my Vionics on when I get dressed in the morning and they stay on all day, It doesn't matter the activity...Vionics keep me going in comfort.
In the spring of 2015 I was experiencing extreme pain in my right foot from plantar faciatis. This caused me to favor my foot and put more pressure on my left foot which in turn created a problem in my left foot called metatarsalgia. I felt like I was walking on a marble under my big toe, which was very uncomfortable and became increasingly painful. So with both of my feet in terrible pain, I read as much as I could about both of those foot issues and discovered that both could cause permanent damage to my feet. I happen to have two friends with those issues that have had surgery and/ or cortisone shots in their feet. Both still have terrible foot pain and no relief, so I knew surgery or shots wasn't the answer for me. While researching I learned that there are foot stretching measures to help with my issues and warnings to wear orthopedic shoes. I reasearched orthopedic shoes and purchased my first pair of Vionic sandals. Within three weeks my foot issues were gone! I wore my sandals every single day of the entire summer. I'm a hair dresser and on my feet for long hours and wore them to work as well. This spring I bought a new pair and I've again worn them every single day the entire summer. We just returned from a trip to Disneyland and I walked a total of 69,378 steps pain free in my fabulous Vionic sandals! Vionic shoes are not only life savers for foot pain, but they are very well made, durable , and very comfortable. I am so grateful for Vionic shoes.
After a month in Europe with my husbands study abroad students as well as our two teenagers, I needed a break. My feet needed some relief from 10 miles a day pounding cobble stone streets and I longed for quiet. I slipped on my all-time favorite Vionic sandals- The Mojave- and Then snuck out the back door of our resort in the Austrian Alps and I began to climb the gorgeous green hills before me. I love climbing hills- even since I was young- and had never seen anything so beautiful as this. My feet felt so good! My body felt strong, my mind so clear. At the top I rested and took it all in. I remember when Plantar Fasciitis plague me for 10 months. How debilitated I was. Vionic restored my mobility and took away my pain! Grateful is an understatement!!!!
I went from a job where I sat most the time to a job where I'm on my feet the majority of the time. It it weren't for Vionic my feet would not be tolerable and my knees, legs and back would hurt!
I have had plantar fasciitis in both of my feet for 3 years now. I was to the point that I could barely walk some days. I decided to try Vionic shoes, and I'm so glad that I did! They have changed my life!! I now can walk and stand all day with virtually no pain. The awesome support of these shoes combined with all of the different styles and colors makes shoe buying fun again. Thank you Vionic!
About four years ago, I had a bad fall which necessitated a total knee replacement in both knees, one sooner than the other one. The first total knee replacement was done on my right knee and, unfortunately, I was 1 out of 10 people whose new knee was "bad," meaning I have been in constant pain for the past years since surgery and have had constant trouble walking, getting up, etc. THEN, last October, I was in a car crash and had several tears in my left (other knee) which, again required surgery. Because of the issues with both knees, I had developed severe tendenitis in my right heel from limping one way or another and, literally, could barely walk, complicated by the never-ending pain. I have been to specialist after specialist, surgeon after surgeon, to no avail. Finally, I thought "I'm going to take the matter into my own hands" and went to a really good shoe store and told them to show me the very best shoes for my problems in their store. They showed me SAS and Vionic. There was absolutely no question in my mind which ones I had to have, due to both comfort and style, and that day walked out with my first two pair of Vionics -- flip flops and slides (clogs) and have worn nothing since to this day. Admittedly, it seemed to take about 6 weeks (virtually to the day) for this to happen, but I am truly a new person. I can walk without limping and my pain is virtually non-existent anymore (unless because of severe weather, etc.) I have more energey and more stamina. Your shoes have been a Godsend. I would be more than happy to be a spokesperson or reference or whatever for Vionics -- they are truly AMAZING. THANK YOU!!! P.S. I work for a federal judge and would never lie!
I have very flat feet but still am vain. I love vionic shoes because I have great support for my feet and body without giving up style. I am a chiropractor and have recommended them to all of my patients.
With osteoarthritis in my left knee, my favorite exercise, walking, was almost impossible. Then I discovered Vionic ! I started with the Walker shoe and I was able to walk 2-3 miles every day. I recently had knee replacement, but I'm not giving up my Vionics ! I walk for my health so that I can enjoy my grandchildren for many more years. Vionics have given me a new lease on life. PS. I now have approximately 12 pairs...different styles/colors. Might as well feel good all day
I had major foot surgery last Spring. I really needed to find a supportive shoe to wear...for the rest of my life. I cringed when I saw my options until I found Vionics. They are stylish and supportive and offer so many options. My Vionic wardrobe is growing! I loved finding cute sandals that I always had wished I could wear, and now I can!
They give such good support and are so supportive that I feel good wearing them. There are real cute styles now, but the support and comfort are what makes me love them.
The reason I bought the first pair of Vionic shoes was because I had damaged a bursa in my heel, I could hardly walk. My doctor told me I need a shoe with back out, so that my heel would not be irritated. This was in the winter and I had looked at Vionic shoes before, so I decided to try them. I got my first pair locally and that is all I wore from then on. I ended up going to a Orthapedic Dr and he raved about my shoes. I had had plantar fasciitis lots of times and after I started wearing Vionic Shoes I have not had it since and my heel never hurts. That was about 2 years ago. Now I can walk wherever I want to, and for all day. When I put those shoes on I wore them all day, without having to get used to them. If people would just try them they would never go back to a regular shoe.
Last January I spent two weeks in Mexico with my husband and friends. We did a lot of walking every day, and at the end of each day my left foot went into very painful spasms which lasted into the night. By the time we got home, my foot was constantly in pain. My GP sent me to a podiatrist who sold me some very good insoles. Then, a friend mentioned Vionic shoes. When I mentioned the brand to the podiatrist, he smiled and said they are the best. I am now the proud owner of four pairs of Vionic shoes, and they are all I wear. I probably will never wear another brand. I never experience pain in my foot any more, and that is a god-send. I've never been a "shoe" person, but I am loving shopping through the styles, having them delivered to my home in no time, and having the shoes feel so perfect right away. My four summer pairs will see me through any event, even just walking around the house. Soon I will be looking for winter shoes. They are worth every penny I spend on my Vionic shoes.
I just bought my first pair, flip flops and cannot believe the instant relief from foot pain with plantar fasciitis. I have dealt with this for years, periods of steroid injections, physical therapy.... And aside from the steroid injection with local anestetic, I have not experienced the relief this pair of flip flops provided. I am a nurse in an ER, on my feet for long hours. . I will be sharing my experience with othe plantar fasciitis suffers in hope they too can feel the relief. Great design, does not appear orthopedic! Bought my husband a pair, he has had ankle reconstuction and a back pain sufferer, he can walk without back pain after walking. Amazing!
I absolutely love my vionics (I have 3 pair), I am a cosmetologist and stand on my feet all day, my heals and arches use to kill me and now they don't! I would highly recommend them and do frequently!
I was diagnosed with plantar fascitis a few years ago. Wearing Vionic shoes and sandals every day has helped keep me pain free. I am very grateful to have them!
My Vionics are very important to me. They have helped me heal a serious injury and help support me when I teach dance. A few years ago I had against injury teaching Ballet at the University where I work. I went up on my toes without proper footwear and I felt a pain in my left heel. Misdiagnosed the first time by podiatrist as having bursitis, I went on teaching dance including Tap. The pain continued and I saw a doctor that specializes in dancers and got another x-ray and it showed that I had a stress fracture in my heel. I also suffered from planter fasciitis. Unfortunately, dance footwear provides no support for the arches. Ballet shoes are completely flat and many jazz shoes and even jazz dance sneakers have a flexible arch so you can point your feet - but that provides NO support for aging dancers and dance teachers. So I was on the search for something that could support my planter fasciitis and stress fracture and found Vionic! I was so happy because my first pair were black-and-pink sneakers and I felt they wouldn't look much different than if I were wearing my dance sneakers. Maybe I can partner with Vionic and they can create an exercise sneaker for those who dance, do Zumba, and do other physically active movement requiring proper arch support. I also have a pair of Vionic pink flip-flops and I love them. Who knew that flip-flops could actually have arch support?! And recently, I liked Vionic on Facebook and entered their Vionic Sneaker Giveaway Contest and actually won! So Thank You Vionic for helping heal my injuries and helping support my feet when I teach on a daily basis! I think we should spread the word to all dancers and dance teachers and get the world Vionicized!
