Christmas is just around the corner, and we’ve already found the perfect gift for hardworking friends and family in need of a little self-care! Whether it's because of age or working all day on your feet, you can't avoid feeling aches and pains in your feet.
The average Filipino spends their whole life shuffling around in flip-flops, slides, or sneakers, often more focused on aesthetic than comfort. The consequence? Foot misalignment, abnormal gaits, and odd posture. The wrong shoes could make you start feeling aches in your arch or heel after just a few hours, but the right kind of shoes can fix those errors altogether.
Enter Vionic Shoes, a footwear brand designed and approved by podiatrists, sports therapists, fitness trainers, and surgeons to ensure optimum foot health for curing heel pain, re-aligning your feet, and improving your overall posture.
Vionic calls its orthotic innovation a “three-zone comfort design,” focusing on cushioning, stability, and arch support. Its designs blend fashion and science without compromising style. Did we mention that this is also Oprah's favorite footwear brand?

“’Walk, move, live’ are the three words on every Vionic shoe box,” says Thea Victorio-Gomez, marketing manager of Easy Street Footwear Corp., the company that brought the brand to the Philippines several years ago. "Vionic takes its customers seriously, understanding that they need footwear that fits every activity or facet of their lives while also promoting health and great style."
Every Vionic shoe has a seal of acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association. Where flats can be too flat and cause pinched nerves, Vionic shoes have specifically cushioned footbeds for comfort. Where slippers offer no support, Vionic shoes possess a contoured arch to promote natural alignment. Where casual sneakers lack shock absorption, Vionic shoes have a deep heel cup for stability.
It’s these details that make practical shoppers eager to add to cart. The best part is that Vionic lets you return shoes, no questions asked, within 30 days because they’re that sure that you won’t.
It’s the perfect gift for the practical mom, the busy dad, the sister who works 12-hour shifts at the hospital, or the aunt who’s always up and about on their feet!
