Do you suffer from foot pain?

Plantar fasciitis is a very common cause of foot pain. The pain is centered under your heel and may be mild at first but flares up when you take your first steps after resting overnight.  It is a dull to severe pain caused by a strain and inflammation of your plantar fascia which is the scientific name for “foot tissue.” When the plantar fascia is excessively stretched, micro-tears can occur, causing this swelling and subsequent pain.


Plantar fasciitis can develop when your feet roll in too far as you take each step. This rolling in, known as over-pronation, can happen for many reasons. It can be due to excessive weight gain, pregnancy, quickly increasing physical activity, tight calf muscles, poor biomechanics or merely wearing unsupportive, flat footwear. When your feet over-pronate, your arches can collapse, putting strain on the tissues in the bottom of your foot.


Vionic shoes are designed with built-in orthotic technology, engineered to support natural alignment and provide relief from plantar fasciitis and heel pain.


A heel spur is another common cause of pain. If it hurts to step on your feet in the morning or you experience a stabbing or aching pain in one or both heels as you walk throughout the day, you may be suffering from heel spurs. Heel spurs are pointed, hooked or shelf-shaped calcium build-ups on the heel bone or calcaneus. While the spurs themselves do not sense pain, their tendency to prod the soft, fatty tissues of the heel can result in severe discomfort with every step you take.

All of the shoes in the active line contain Advanced Motion System Technology, which is comprised of:

  • LIGHTWEIGHT UPPERS with breathable material
  • CUSHIONED OUTSOLES that are flexible yet stabilizing and
  • Podiatrist-designed ORTHAHEEL  SUPPORT



And now you can wear sandals and still get the support you need! Vionic sandals, shoes, boots and slippers are biomechanically engineered to hug your arches, supporting natural alignment.

STYLE THAT MAKES YOUR FEET SMILE. Wearing orthopedic shoes or orthotic inserts is an easy, effective method of naturally realigning the foot. A groundbreaking study shows Vionic shoes and sandals effectively alleviate heel pain. Worn consistently throughout the day, orthotic support is a great first step in the short-term treatment of plantar fasciitis, spurs and fallen arches.
