When it comes to footwear, I’ve always been a comfort over style instead of ‘style over comfort’ kinda gal. No matter how cute they may be, if my feet don’t feel like they’re floating on clouds, you can bet your bottom dollar it’ll be a ‘No’ from me. Because of this I’ve lived most of my life in trainers and as soon as I find a comfy pair of heels you can guarantee I’m going to be wearing them on every single occasion until they die – I’ve even had one pair re-heeled and re-soled more times than I can count because they were that comfortable! And when it’s come to sandals, I’ve never really found a pair that have been comfy without being flip-flops, which let’s be honest, just aren’t practical all the time. Being a mum now (my favourite saying ever) I need a pair of sandals that are robust enough to deal with the day to day of having a baby that’s (almost) toddling around and look pretty at the same time, because I have no intention’s of being a frumpy mum anytime soon. In the words of Mean Girls, “I’m a cool Mum”. Or at least I try…
These beautiful sandals are from Vionic, the shoe brand that’s taking comfort seriously and creating beautiful, stylish shoes that are designed to help with your natural alignment and keep your feet comfortable. My feet definitely feel like they’re walking on clouds in these beauties. Whether I’m walking round town with Maddy in the pushchair, bossing it in meetings with my clients or going on a National Trust walk with my beautiful little family, these sandals have proved to be the most comfortable I’ve ever had and still look so stylish. The design and arch support makes me able to walk in them for hours without even the slightest pinch and even when I’m standing on gravel or stones, I barely even notice. Definitely a far cry better than the flat sandals that have been made ever popular by certain cheap high street brands and making ‘style over comfort’ a thing! It turns out style doesn’t have to hurt after all girls, we can have comfort and style!!
Considering I wouldn’t blink twice at paying £90 for a supported pair of trainers for the gym, I actually think the price of these are okay – yes, it’s a little steep considering you can pick a pair of sandals up on the high street for less than £10 but when it comes to support, comfiness and longevity, I have a feeling these ones will win hands-down every time. I’ve already been living in them for the past few months and they are without a doubt the best wearing pair I’ve ever owned – they don’t even look like I’ve worn them if you look at the sole!
The flowery T-bar design is gorgeous and so flattering and although the sole is chunkier than your average pair nowadays (which I did think would look a little granny-ish at first I have to admit) they actually look beautiful when on. Without a doubt a pair of sandals (or even any pair of shoes) you buy from Vionic are going to be one of the best purchases for your feet you’ll ever make! I can’t wait to buy more!!
