I’ve only gone and done it….I’ve got my feet out, funny what a little sunshine gets you braving! It’s always a pinnacle moment of the year, the one where I pack away my trusty boots for the season and bring out the sandals. Being a Devon living, seaside gal it’s pretty much flip-flops all the way for the next few months bar a few plimsols wearing days, only this year I’m going a little different with something a little more supportive.
I’ve got quite an over pronation and while those trusty flip-flops may be super comfy but I fear I may have done a little damage over the years, so this spring and summer I’m hoping to correct my step by wearing some podiatrist designed footbed sandals from Vionic Shoes .
The great thing about the Jura sandals which I’m stepping out in (see what I did there!) is I’ll be working on walking with the correct alignment and that over pronation I’ve developed will be no more. <crosses fingers > I’m also hoping the foot pain I experience when out on long walks will stop. (They’re also great for helping with Plantar Fasciitus which is explained in more detail over on the website
But aside from all the sciencey stuff going on, they look really good! I’ve opted for an on-going animal print theme which I know have a growing collection of footwear in, with the hope they’ll go with anything and everything. They can be dressed up or casual-ed down and break up an all black outfit and add a sassy edge to denims and whites.
I’ve got quite narrow feet so having an adjustable strap means I can adjust them to fit perfectly and as leather tends to give a little over time, I can tighten them so they’ll always fit. This is a must-have on my summer sandals tick list as I didn’t fancy a pair which I ended up having to toe-grab them into place each time I walked, in an effort to keep them on my feet. The double strap should put an end to any of that annoying business.
And best of all, now I have some fabulous shoes, I can start some serious summer shopping for my holiday wardrobe and book myself in for a must have summer pedicure.
I was gifted a pair of Vionic Jura sandals for my honest opinion. All words and photos are my own unless otherwise stated
