  1. Please consider making a covered toe sandal that is supportive of your feet. Mules slip off my feet as I walk.
    I would like to see a summer sandal (casual and dressy) with out wedge heel, with a strap, and covered toe but the sole and footbed are supportive like the Women’s Candace Sandal or some of the other cute supportive sandals you offer. Not everybody has pretty feet or toes but we all want to our feet to be cool, stylish and comfortable.

  3. Just bought my first pair of Vionic sandals (where have they been all my life). Had 2 foot and ankle surgeries and was always looking for the perfect pair of shoes and sneakers, well, now I found Vionics. They are the best, and I can walk in them all day. Thank you, thank you!!
