I was recently contacted by Vionic who asked if I would like to choose a pair of shoes to test. Well yes please! I had a look at their website as it was a brand that I hadn't heard of before so I wanted to make sure they were in keeping with my style and what I like to wear. I discovered that their styles are very on trend but provide comfort and foot-care with their supportive technology. I was intrigued..
I chose the Syra in white snake (also available in white and black). These retail at £100 so a mid-price option (yes there are similar out there that cost a lot more). But if they provide the comfort they promise then actually very good value.
I tried them on as soon as they arrived and they felt immediately comfortable but I saved wearing them properly for a dry day and chose to road test them when my daughter and I went shopping at Westfield last week.
They are so comfortable! They definitely live up to their promise. I wore them all day without socks or liners and I had no rubbing, my feet didn't get tired and they felt soft and supportive. And they have been my go-to shoe every day since! . Especially now I am a little older and comfort as well as style is important. Gone are the days when I could wear a heel all day to the office, walk down the high street and back at lunchtime and still go out in the evening! My lifestyle means I am jumping in and out of the car, running errands and walking the dogs.
Vionic explain 'our shoes and sandals hug your arches like a natural footprint, giving you all day support'.

Vionic offer a 30 day money back guarantee as well. You can 'wear-test' them and if you are not convinced they are for you then they will happily refund your purchase.
The technology in all their shoes offer relief from conditions such as plantar fasciitis and heel pain.
I wanted to find out more about this brand having not heard of them before. They are an Australian company, established in 1979 by a podiatrist. They have their own Innovation Lab where they are supported by some of the best minds in health and bio-mechanics of the lower limb. So they know their stuff.
This style is perfect for spring - when we are keen to move out of boots and ready to reveal ankles but not ready for ballet pumps or sandals yet
And now I have discovered how comfortable Vionic shoes are, I have my eye on some different styles for summer. I love these espadrille wedges, Maris at £90, I like the pewter but they also come in blue and black.
And men don't need to feel left out - they have a good selection of men's styles too!

If you'd like to look at some other styles and reviews too then pop over to Donna at I Won't Wear Sludge Brown she has been trying out the tan backless loafer and Susie So So has the espadrilles that I have my eye on.
PS Since writing this review I have found them so comfortable that I have been wearing them in the house! I don't want to take them off.

Disclaimer: these shoes were gifted to me by Vionic and all they asked of me was to share an outfit photo on my social media. I chose to do the review as I genuinely love these shoes and wanted to share the details with you.
