Flip Flops ~ A Summer Staple

Friday, June 19, 2015
Flips flops are the summer shoe of choice here at the Jersey shore. When you live at the beach, it's hard to imagine wearing anything but flip flops all summer long. Easy on and easy off is a must for any avid beach goer, and flip flops fit the bill perfectly.

As comfortable as flip flops are, they aren't the most supportive footwear, however. I often end up with painful cramps at the end of the a long day of wearing flip flops. And those that do offer some support are often unattractive.

Friday, June 19th is National Flip Flop day, and I can't think of a better occasion to share a bit about a new pair of flip flops I recently received from Vionic.

I was eager to try a pair of Vionic flip flops after hearing about them from a personal trainer at my gym. She raved about them and suggested that I try them. She said they helped to alleviate and eliminate some of the back pain she was getting after a long day of wearing flip flops.

Vionic features Orthaheel Technology, a podiatrist-designed support built seamlessly into contemporary and modern classic design of the shoe. In other words, Vionic flip flops are stylish and offer the best support for your foot and your entire body. The innovative Orthaheel Technology helps reduce over-pronation, which can improve foot function and relieve common associated pains such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain), knee pain and back pain.

I worn mine to they gym yesterday for a yoga class. They are so comfortable, not like a squishy comfortable, but more like a solid, hugging feeling on your feet. My feet didn't slide around on the foundation as they often do on conventional flip flops.

We have several trips to amusement parks planned this summer, and I will definitely be wearing my Vionic flip flops. These are exactly the type of flip flops to take me through an entire day of extensive walking in style (a must!) and comfort.
