Ahh spring. We are finally getting some happy, sunny weather here in Portland. What, you thought it rained all of the time? It does rain a lot, yes, but on the sunny bright days like today I don’t have to grab the boots. I get to wear CUTE shoes! As I get older I realized that footwear matters to my health. Sure, I can still wear the stilettos on occasion, but most of the time it’s flats. And I discovered there is a better footwear choice – actually good for you

Vionic Footwear with Orthaheel Technology and Weil Integrative Footwear feature built-in biomechanical orthotic support, providing much sought after relief from common foot, ankle, back and knee pain. The podiatrist-designed technology restores the foot’s natural (neutral) alignment, enabling the feet, ankles and legs to function dynamically as they were intended – ideal shoes to wear both to and from a gym or studio session.

I was lucky enough to get a cute pair of Vionic Sandals – the Julie II in navy!


Trendy and easy, this t-strap style sandal features floral accents and adjustability for added comfort.

-Manmade uppers

-Lightweight, flexible EVA midsole absorbs shock, reducing stress on feet, ankles, and knees.

-Durable rubber outsole with a patterned tread provides traction on a variety of surfaces.

-Our innovative podiatrist-designed Orthaheel Technology provides superior orthotic support, relief and stability which helps realign the feet back to their natural position.

-Research supports Orthaheel Technology’s success in reducing over-pronation, which can help relieve associated common aches and pains, such as heel pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain and lower back pain.

-Recommended by renowned Dr. Andrew Weil.

-Received APMA Seal of Acceptance


I am absolutely loving these adorable sandals! So much nicer than plain ol’ flip-flops, so I can wear them with more outfits – like a summer dress to some conferences perhaps? They are incredibly comfortable. Just the other day I took the kiddos to the zoo for a few hours and wore them – no usual foot pain, no back pain, I actually felt like I could walk around all day in them. They aren’t “loud”, meaning they don’t overpower any outfit I am wearing. They go with just about everything. But most of all they are comfortable and easy to wear.


You can find Vionic Footwear online – lots of great sandals, lace-up walking shoes, slippers, and even men’s styles. All at a price worth paying for healthy feet!
