When it comes to selecting a pair of shoes, women of today have no lack of choice. However, if you are looking for serious footwear that relieves heel, leg or back pain, the science-infused Vionic shoes may just be the answer for you.
The creator of Vionic shoes, Phillip Vasyli, was a renowned podiatrist who dedicated his life’s work to treating thousands of patients ranging from children to professional athletes. From his clinical work, he realised that the limited treatment options for many common foot-related ailments, like plantar fasciitis or over-pronation, were costly and time-consuming.
Committed to his patients’ wellbeing, he invented one of the first heat-moldable orthotics, which was a highly effective and yet economical option for his patients. That process gave birth to the award-winning Orthaheel technology footwear in 1979, which was designed to help restore natural foot function.
Many of us are not aware that our usual habits of spending much of our time standing, walking, and running on unnatural or hard surfaces would force our feet to roll over to gain contact with the ground, which in turn flattens arches. The flattening of our foot arches can cause painful knee and hip misalignments.
Trendy Vionic sandals, slippers, active shoes and casual shoes feature technologies such as a deep heel cup to augment stability, substantial arch support and a firm yet flexible midsole. In our tropical climate, Vionic slippers are unsurprisingly our best –sellers!
To further Vasyli’s mission, Vionic continues to dedicate efforts in research and innovation. The Vionic Innovation Lab, taps on the expertise of world-renowned health and fitness experts who share a common vision of enhancing foot health and helping people achieve a more active lifestyle.
