Just by changing your shoes, you can change your life! Walk, move and life pain free with Vionic!

It’s what’s inside the shoe that counts! Orthaheel Technology is the foundation of each and every Vionic shoe, sandal and slipper. Each design begins with an innovative contour seamlessly built into the footbed. This trusted orthotic engineering is designed to provide you with proper alignment, which can help reduce common aches and pains from the ground up.

We were designed to walk on soft, natural surfaces like sand, soil and grass. Instead, we walk 5,000 – 10,000 steps a day on hard unnatural surfaces like concrete and tile causing more harm to our body than good. There is a simple solution to this problem and Vionic has it built right into their entire footwear range with Orthaheel Orthotic Technology. Vionic’s mission is to transform wardrobes and empower active lifestyles, matching the way people want to look to the way they long to feel. Their shoes provide pain-relief seekers with the ultimate bonus: a stylish shoe that feels great too.

Studies show that 75% of North Americans experience minor to serious foot problems at some point in their lives, and most of them don’t seek help. In fact, footwear designed for pain relief makes up less than 1% of sales in independent retailers and specialty stores. Vionic footwear provides natural relief from the ground up by giving you back your natural footprint. Their innovative orthotic technology helps realign the feet, which may relieve common associated pains such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain), knee pain and back pain.

In a recent customer satisfaction survey, nearly 90% of customers purchased products with Orthaheel Technology to help relieve foot-related pain, 85% indicated that Orthaheel Technology was more effective than other footwear brands in relieving their pain, and nearly 98% would recommend Orthaheel Technology to a friend.

Vionic Group benefits from the expertise of some of the finest minds in health and lower limb biomechanics. This collaboration, the Vionic Innovation Lab, brings together world-renowned authorities committed to promoting active lifestyles and healthier feet. No other footwear company benefits from such a wide range and high level of expertise.

Vionic with Orthaheel Technology is proud to carry the only products having earned both the APMA Seal of Acceptance and a recommendation from world-renowned integrative medicine expert, Andrew Weil, M.D.

“From the integrative medicine approach, we’re always looking at simple, low-tech, non-invasive ways of improving health. An obvious area in which to concentrate is designing really comfortable, effective footwear that can enable people to have an active lifestyle.”
Andrew Weil, M.D.
