Vionic is Orthotic

Shoes that are good for our feet typically look like shoes we wouldn't want to be caught dead in. Or  look like shoes only our lolas will love.

Here's where Vionic comes in. Yes, the folks at Vionic aim to reduce the damage to our feet caused by misalignment.  But they also know there should at least be some semblance of style if they want to get women to give up on their pretty but un-ergonomic footwear.

They first worked on the important stuff, aka support and alignment with Dr. Phillip Vasyli, a podiatrist with over 30 years of practice. This was made possible via built-in orthotics in its footwear that help maintain the natural alignment of our feet while standing and walking.

By achieving this natural alignment, Vionic helps our feet move more naturally against flat, hard surfaces, which in turn help alleviate heel discomfort. 

The science in each Vionic footwear also consists of various features that include deep heel cups that enhance stability; firm yet flexible midsoles that help the feet bend more naturally; and arch supports that cradle and hug our feet as though they are gently pressing on soil or sand with each step. 

Because of this innovation and science-backed features, many of Vionic’s styles have been accepted by the American Podiatric Association, which certifies products that are beneficial for foot health. 

Furthermore, one of Vionic’s sandals is clinically proven to alleviate heal pain, based on a peer-reviewed clinical study partially funded by Vionic on people experiencing moderate, non-traumatic heel pain. I'll find out which one exactly, heehee.

In the Philippines, Vionic is also growing in popularity among foot healthcare professionals.

“Vionic is the only product I’ve seen in the market that has built in orthotics that help my patients. I used to recommend orthotics to my patients who have plantar fasciitis. But now I can recommend Vionic to those who have this problem,” said Dr. Roberto Lopez, of the Philippine Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society.

“I have seen how Vionic helps improve the body’s alignment by merely aligning the feet in the correct position. If we achieve good alignment, we can eliminate most aches and pains in our feet and back, especially for those who stand or walk for a long time everyday.” explains Mr. Dwight Guieb, Registered Physical Therapist. “I have in fact recommended Vionic to some of my patients.”

If you or anyone you know want to walk, move and live free from heel pain, visit the newly opened Vionic retail stores at Uptown Bonifacio and Ayala Malls The 30th and feel it for yourselves.
