Somerset Goddess


These are the most comfortable trainers ever! I have bunions and hammer toes and have some difficulty finding comfy footwear that I can use for any length of time, for walking around while shopping or strolling along the canal. These are perfect. Straight out of the box they took me to and from a day's cricket watching, and withstood the inevitable 'rain stopped play' downpour without leaving me with wet feet. Please never stop making these, and please offer a wider range of colours. They are perfection.



I bought these for walking, they are very comfortable and support my foot well BUT the navy colour made my feet blue and they faded quickly. Also within 3 weeks of wearing them the toe lining came loose; the sole is thin and if walking on stones/uneven surface I felt them through the sole. Despite all that they are so comfortable I’d try a different Vionic style!



At the start of the first lockdown, I bought this trainer in pink. I did so much walking that they were looking worn. So I bought another pair in navy - they are so comfortable!



I’ve been wearing these trainers on my lockdown walks and they are really comfortable. The softness and light weight of the shoe makes them feel like a slipper. Two other points - they are hopeless in wet weather because it’s like wearing a tea bag so expect wet socks if you get caught out. My only other disappointment is that they don’t support the arch of my foot as much as I thought they would so my walking position is still not right and the inner part of the sole takes most impact.



Bought as suffering from plantar fasciitis, At first I wore them around the house instead of slippers they have really helped with my foot condition. I’m now wearing as trainers and am able to walk much further without pain it’s obviously not a cure but a really big help.
Very soft and comfortable



I work in a busy Surgical Ward and I have had 2 pairs off the the Joey trainers in navy I haven’t had any problems with my feet since I have started wearing Vionic I have been trying to get new ones but can’t get them in Navy size 5 Mary 6/2/2021



I adore my Joey trainers, so comfortable, no seams to rub, they are the softest leather and I don’t want to wear anything else! I have them now in 3 colours but really need some in black which don’t seem to be available any more. Best shoes ever, thank you Vionic!



I bought the navy pair at the start of Spring and whilst they are very comfortable I noticed that if my feet got even a little hit the blue colour bled and stained my socks.. then during the summer, I have noticed the blue has faded so much it’s more like having a pale blue pair of trainers than navy.

Disappointed. I have a grey and pink pair and this has not happened to either of those.



These shoes fit perfectly and were very comfortable and attractive. Unfortunately, I had not realised the uppers were open-weave and therefore unsuitable for damp autumn weather which is what I needed. Had they been more weather-proof I would definitely have kept them but, as they would only be suitable for very fine summer weather, I sadly had to return them. I would definitely recommend them for summer use though.



Have taken to long pavement walks during lockdown which can be hard on my feet. These shoes offer great support while remaining lightweight and fashionable - I am about to order my second pair. I've barely worn anything else since I found these shoes!
While other reviews note that you should size up, for me personally (wide size 3), I found them true to size as the leather stretches a bit with wear.



I noticed a marked reduction in my arthritic hip pain and as a result am able to walk taller and not stoop. They are, light and airy. Very fashionable style. I would recommend. They are expensive but worth it.



Really enjoyed wearing these, so comfortable, a good fit and don't squash or hurt my arthritic and malformed feet. HALLELUIA!



I bought these to help with my collapsed arches and plantar fasciitis. They are comfortable but I don’t feel they support my arches.
I have used them with insoles and they’re fab. But I had hoped to find a pair of trainers that wouldn’t need the insoles.
The search continues!



Lovely colour. Very light weight. Great for road walking the dogs



I have very wide feet and I went half a size up as previous reviews recommended. They fit perfectly. The only reason I haven’t given 5 stars is that I haven’t quite got used to the arch support. I realise this might take a few days but am confident that I will!

Dotty cat lady


I have a lot of problems with my feet and these are so comfortable and big enough so I can insert my insoles. Highly recommended



Bought them for my wife she loves them finds their very comfortable.

Lou Lou


These are the first pair of Vionic trainers that I’ve bought. They are very light, soft and also give support to your feet. Very comfortable and my feet feel as if they’ve had a new lease of life. Will definitely buy more in the future. Great buy and value for money.



I have plantar fasciitis and always in pain. I put my joey bionics on and did a 50 minute walk through woods with my dogs. Brilliant!



I have now been wearing my Vionic casual trainers for a few weeks and I can honestly say I have never had such a comfortable shoe. The style and fit support my foot perfectly. I will be buying a more substantial pair for the winter.



These are great shoes for pottering around town. Soft and stylish with vionics great arch support...keeps my plantar fasciitis away!



Excellent comfort and quality



I have various pairs of Vionic shoes/trainers and decided to treat myself to a different design and colour. The colour is a neutral shade and the photos make them appear more "mauve/pink" than they actually are.
The fit is true to size and they are extremely comfortable. I wore them for the whole day the first time I wore them.
I find the shoes very supportive, widish fitting and easy to put on and take off.



Loved the look of these trainers,and when they arrived they were just what I wanted ,but sadly they were much to big it was recommended to go up to the next size but for me my usual 41/2 would have been fine ,



As title suggests I love vionics, these are light and airy very comfortable supportive trainers. Dress up or down matching quite a few of my outfits. Highly recommended

Bought about a month ago Liked them so much just bought another pair in a different colour!



Brilliant breathable and ver comfortable



I bought these a month ago. I originally ordered size 7 believing them to come up small.They were too big so I returned them and got a 6.5. They fit perfectly I am very pleased.



I bought these a few weeks ago, I have only just started to wear them but am very happy with them. I couldn't believe how light they are, love the colour. I am usually size 4 but ordered 4.5 and glad I did as they fit just right.






I have now bought three pairs of these shoes in pink, navy and grey. They are so lightweight and comfortable and hold my foot well. I wish you did a white pair!

Country girl


Comfortable and lightweight. I didn't realise they came up small so had to return my normal size 5 for 5.5. Good value in the sale. Have plantar fasciitis and Vionic shoes and sandals have made a huge difference. Thank you.

Cool feet


Joey is so cool in hot weather and I have been so impressed with the comfort and style. You can wear them with dresses, shorts and trouser. I’ve managed to wear them out during lockdown having walked miles in them. I am now buying my second pair.



I now have two pairs of these shoes, they’re so comfortable I could sleep in them.
I have Plantar Fasciitis in both feet and I cannot recommend these shoes highly enough.
As well as being very comfortable they look good and have been much admired and commented on.
I just love them.
Highly recommend !

These are the Best Buy ever, lightweight, comfortable, arched and great for a long pain free Walk .... I’m so grateful to have discovered VIONIC thank you ...



I don't have any foot problems but I must be comfortable. The trainers are exactly that!
Lightweight & soft. No rubbing or blisters which I have experienced with well known expensive branded comparisons.



I have plantar fasciitis and I have found these shoes do help.



Found the website Vionic after looking for shoes to help a painful condition plantar fasciitis. The shoes are really comfortable and were an instant relief as soon as I put them on. Brilliant!

Goody two shoes


I love my shoes. They are comfortable for walking quite long distances. I overpronate quite badly and have to wear an orthotic insole. They fit well in my shoes. Lovely colour (pink) too.



I ordered these in mauve, very nice colour for spring/summer. They were very soft so I did have concerns over how supportive they would be especially around the ankle. I did feel they looked a bit of a “granny”shoe so on balance I decided to return.



These trainers are so comfortable and I could walk for miles on first outing. Absolutely brilliant service so quick with delivery.

I have problems with my feet and it's always hard to find good shoes, especially online. I am very happy with these shoes as they provide me with needed support and comfort at the same time. I usually buy size 5 but went with size 5,5 wide and it fits just about. Could have done with size 6 for a little space, but i am happy with it as it is as well, just needed to walk them in. They are light and look nice, will use them for work as well. I would recommend this product 100%



Very comfy and so light. Small fitting i would have ordered a full larger size.

Do's shoes


I love these trainers! They are comfortable. light and airy and have been admired quite a lot!!!!



Such comfortable shoes especially as I have small but wide feet. I read the other reviews before buying and agree, it is advisable to go up half a size. I recommended Vionic to my sister and she has also gone on to purchase 3 pairs of shoes!!! Thank you Vionic.



I bought these with the opinion I would probably have to return them due to foot issues.
I’m am pleased to say that I was completely overwhelmed with this trainers. The comfort was there from the very start. I ordered the mauve as I felt I needed a change from the usual black.
However I so wish the black came with a black sole because then I could buy them as a work shoe.



I sent away for these because it seemed that they would help me out during a difficult time, when I am forced to wear a personal orthotic insole and a brace to enable me to walk without pain. As yet, I have no need for decent shoes but, from trying on my purchase, I think they will provide comfort while allowing for the insole and brace. Thank you.



Absolutely brilliant. Helping my plantar fasciitis tremendously. Am wearing them to play golf and they are so supportive and feels like you are wearing a nice leather glove. Have been contemplating buying another pair but as have not worked since lockdown it will have to wait! Have been recommending the shoes to all my golfing friends.



Easy shopping on line, came two days later best trainers I’ve ever had comfort is 10 out of 10
Will definitely order more



These are very comfy, lovely lightweight shoes. I got them in the mauve and I really like the colour, nice and summery.
Highly recommend



After a sudden and very painful bout of plantar fasciitis where I couldn’t put my foot to the ground I realised that I have to water vionics all the time so added these trainers to my collection and have rarely taken them off. Shame in a way as they look so nice I didn’t want to spoil them be wearing them.



Not as supportive as I’d hoped, but these are lightweight and comfortable and look good.



I bough these two weeks ago and they are really comfortable. You will need to go up half a size. I usually buy a size 6 but the 6.5 were a perfect fit. This company is also always really easy to deal with.



I absolutely love my vionic shoes and can't imagine wearing any others. So comfortable. Excellent service and delivery and recommend ed to my friends who have bought as well.



Very pleased with fit. I have arthritic feet and need to feel support. These are light airey but still supporting.



Unfortunately the sole split within a few days. Full refund given immediately and I have ordered a replacement hoping it was just a one off.
Very comfortable shoes and smart.



I bought these when I was surge staff at ICU, NHS. Last year i broke my back so knew I had to have help for 12 hour shifts. They are brilliant. Never had better. The only problem was i washed them in the washing machine twice, because of contagion. Sadly the rubber around the toe loosened but I am not complaining! These will be the best investment for joy of pain free knees etc !



These are lovely, can’t wait for an opportunity to wear them when I go back to work



So having very flat feet arthritis and surgery on both my feet I was do pleased I found these. Since buying them I've bought a pair of sandals and slippers. I wish I found them years ago.



Great, comfortable trainers, excellent support. Bought black pair, look stylish and need a few days to wear in.



Had these pumps for two weeks now, so comfortable, no need for socks, got half size smaller & were a perfect fit



I bought these a month ago and must say how comfortable and light they are to wear! Great fit and look very stylish too..



I am delighted to have bought these Vionic Joey Trainers.
I broke my ankle 18 months ago from which I feel altered my foot shape and balance. This made my foot ache while walking. I am having small walks during the day.. my hip then started being painful.
I would recommend Joey Trainers they appeared true to size, light and flexible. I am definitely going to have to buy a second pair while they are on sale, such great colours to choose.
Extremely comfortable and I shall wear everyday for work and walking my dog.
Very happy customer.
Thank you Vionics



The trainers are great, comfy and stylish! The photo doesnt do the black ones justice. It took around 1 week to break the trainers in but now I wont go out walking with anything else on my feet. With regards to sizing I would reccomend going a half size bigger. Definitely will buy another pair and work shoes too!



I bought this item a few weeks ago and I have used them most days to do my lockdown walk daily exercise. I did need to send the first pair back as I needed 1/2 a size bigger but this was no problem and reordered a bigger size. They came quickly and I am really pleased and very comfortable.



Just received these in black today. So comfortable and perfect fit. I suffer with plantar fasciitis, hoping these will help with the heel pain.



I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I have suffering for over a year now with foot/heel, ankle, leg & back pain steadily getting worse. It got to the stage where I had a constant limp, could no longer walk, I could no longer stand... my daughter suffered because I could not play with her... dogs suffered as they couldn't be walked... Saturday nights out were not an option as I could not stand or walk to and from the bar.. my mental health was not good due to all the losses... I am 30 years old and my 8 year old daughter would have to help me up the stairs - sorry for the long winded list of issues but it is just to show how amazing these shoes are!

Within the 1st hour of wearing I was standing up straight without holding something for support!
Withing 3 days I was able to balance on one foot!!
Withing 5 days I was back running around with my daughter & walking my dogs!!!

I have never felt such relief. Can only thank Vionic for their shoe designs.

More pricey than what I would normally pay for shoes but the value added to my life is priceless!!

Adding more to the cart now :-)

Thank you



I brought these but are sending back due to the sizing is quite small, I’m a 3.5 to 4 normally, my toes came right the end with no room, I ordered the 4 but am returning for a 4.5, they seem very comfortable and very lightweight just hope 4.5 are better

Extremely comfortable shoes. Have Plantar fasciitis which is extremely painful, so the support in Vionic shoes make a tremendous difference to my life. Happy Days!!!



I bought these trainers a month ago and it has been a revelation to find such comfortable trainers. I enjoy walking and this is the first time I have found a pair that I forget I am wearing.



I was originally looking for a pair of white trainers to pep up my usual dull colour choice but quickly changed my mind after finding these very pretty lilac lightweight shoes in the necessary wide fitting, plus a very comfy instep support. As these were in the sale at an unmissable price I am doubly pleased so I'm now waiting for a much needed change in the weather in order to show off these brilliant trainers!



I bought these in the sales last year and they are so comfortable to where. They are extremely light and the memory foam makes them a dream to wear.

Walking on air


I have quite a bad foot problem these shoes are the most comfortable I have had in years. I have worn them twice and I feel sure they will improve my foot problems. THANK YOU.
