This is Your Feet’s New Best Friend (Because Style Doesn’t Need to Hurt)
By: WhenInManila Contributor Published: May 17, 2017.
Walking has been a bothersome but necessary part of my daily routine ever since I started working in Pasay City. Jumping between the LRTs and the shuttles daily can get a bit much. And don’t even get me started on days when shuttles aren’t available and I’m forced to walk along the length of Buendia. Needless to say, my feet and legs get quite a workout daily, which is why comfortable footwear is a must.
And so, getting introduced to Vionic has been a complete blessing and I have my friend, Jo, to thank for that. It’s been a month since I started using these cute Vionic Minna Flats to work and I have loved every moment!
Shoes that offer comfort and support – and even style
By: China Jocson Published: March 9, 2017
When it comes to shoes, I’ve never been particular with specifications and admittedly I have been guilty of putting style over function and form for as long as I could recall.
However, with my inborn spine condition and coming of age (a.k.a. maturing body parts and bones), I recently found myself more inclined to purchasing footwear that can alleviate health conditions and also prevent damage to one’s hooves. Here are some brands I tried out:
Footwear brand Vionic—founded by the late Australian podiatrist Dr. Phillip Vasyli—offers shoes with built-in orthotics (shoe inserts that provide support) that help maintain the natural alignment of the feet while standing, walking and doing activities. The science in each Vionic product is distributed throughout various features that include deep heel cups, firm yet flexible midsoles and arch support that cradle our feet.

There’s probably not a day when we don’t whine about our feet after a long hard day. Oh, my aching feet!
Fashion-forward footwear brand Vionic gives us the lowdown on this common modern-day problem: You’re wearing poorly designed shoes — shoes not meant for walking. Unfortunately, as that nursery rhyme goes, “We can’t run away from our feet.” Vionic to the rescue!
When Vionic opened a store at Uptown Mall, Gobal City, we naturally pointed our not-so-happy feet in its direction.
