Details

The platform gets an upgrade with the Rio. With three adjustable straps across the vamp and metal buckle detail the Rio brings both function and style to a classic silhouette.

  • Upper: Textured Faux Leather or Natural Cork.
  • Footbed: EVA.
  • Outsole: Durable Rubber.
  • Heel Height: 1.9 inch.

Our innovative podiatrist-designed FMT Technology provides superior orthotic support, relief and stability which helps realign the feet back to their natural position.

Research supports FMT Technology's success in reducing over-pronation, which can help relieve associated common aches and pains, such as heel pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain and lower back pain.

Fit & Care

  • This style is not suitable for narrower feet.
  • Available in women's whole sizes 3-9
  • If you are a half size, we recommend ordering the nearest size down.
  • Footbed: Pacific

For the greatest comfort, we recommend wearing your new VIONIC footwear for just a few hours for the first few days to allow your feet to adjust to the new level of orthotic comfort and support.

Within one to two weeks you should find the product completely comfortable and supportive.

  • To clean, wipe away dirt and dust with a dry cotton cloth.
  • Do NOT submerge in water or use solvents to clean products.

I have some vionic summer walking shoes which are great but fot the winter relied on arch support insoles from elsewhere in ordinary walking shoes, never again! I bought flat and heeled sandals recently and cannot believe the difference it has made to the leg and hip pain I was getting. My body feels re aligned. Highly recommended

These sandals are a revelation. All straps are adjustable and the foot bed is perfect for my feet.I have rheumatoid arthritis and my feet vary in size from day to day so the adjustability is key.Also they are fashionable
Thanks

Bought 2 pairs of these mules and keep one just to wear as slippers indoors. The ease the terrible pain I get in my heel. Lovely and comfortable and a good fit as they have adjustable straps. The soles are not rock hard...they are just the right density.
All in all a very comfortable sandal and a great bargain in the sale (as they are a bit pricey full price).

I'm usually a size 5.5 in vionics. Prefer wide fit for winter boots etc to accommodate socks & for sandals to allow for feet swelling. Standard for all else.
Found these to be long in length so my foot slipped forward & arch therefore in wrong place & very wide although adjustable.
I really loved the look of them, red with red toenails perfect,but not for me sadly. Given to my size 6 daughter whom they fitted perfectly & declared even more comfortable than her Vionic flip flops.

These sandals are a lovely colour and initially very comfortable though on wearing them for a length of time I found that the topstrap rubbed my foot as it sits rather high. However I wouldn't dream of returning them as I got them at a good price in the sale and I like the look of them. I just have to remember not to wear them for too long!

Very comfortable from day 1, true to size (seems hit and miss with Vionic). Perfect for travelling and great to wear every day. And red!

Received these sandals have had Vionic sandals before .i have a broad foot so easy to adjust come up quite big in size I normally take 41/2 so bought a size 4 (37) but there is still a slight gap from my foot and end of sandal but size (36) would have been too small just be aware of this when buying .Its better to be slightly too big than too small .They look very nice and will be great once I get used to them again .

After reading reviews about Vionic shoes decide d to invest in it as I suffer from plantar facilitis.
Since it was sale bought it as house shoes. Would love to buy a pair for work to get the full benefits As I am on my feet all day. Only thing is too expensive ☺️

I purchased these lovely red Rios mainly because they were a reduced price and I wanted to try Vionics. I am not disappointed - they are a gorgeous red and very comfortable. As I have 42/8 wide feet and now plantar fascitis I didn't think I would be able to wear summer footwear comfortably again without orthotic inserts. I must also praise the speed in which they arrived - just over 24 hours and in lockdown - and free postage - faboulous thank you very much ..... now off to order another style.

These are my second pair in another colour love them they are wide enough and support my feet where I need on my soles of my feet love them and when I see in the sale I'll have another

I ordered these Rio shoes in red mainly because they were in the sale and I wanted to try Vionics. I have size 42/8 wide feet, and have recently been suffering from Plantar Fascitis - I really thought I would be stuck wearing trainers with my personal orthotics. Well I am SO happy the sizing was brilliant on these shoes, they are a fab colour, and really comfortable. I have worn them inside the last couple of days to get used to them and am so pleased. To make things even better - I ordered them thinking they would take a while in lockdown and they arrived within two days and no postage was paid. Five star service and five star shoes. I can't wait to try another style now.........

Really lovely, comfortable sandals. I particularly like the elevation they give you. I have an almost identical pair which are a flatter sole but the straps are made of leather which I much prefer. I also need to add that I have wide feet an d they’re perfect, with every strap being adjustable.

I love owning a pair of red shoes! These Vionic ones are comfortable and look good. Good price too.

I bought these to replace an old pair of slides as during lock-down that's all I want to wear around the house. These are so comfy and supportive and look as is they will last and last. I need the arch support Vionic offers and find it hard to get anywhere else. Oh, and I got an amazing bargain too! Thanks.

I bought these a few weeks ago and I am very happy with them. I particularly like the raised arch. At the age of 63, I find I have to wear shoes with raised arches to try to keep my feet in the right shape and I use these clog type shoes in the house as a type of slipper. You can adjust the tightness across the feet by adjusting the three straps.

This sandal fulfils my expectations of comfortable, attractive summer footwear. Vionic footwear is extremely comfortable and the pain from plantar fasciitis has quite disappeared. I can now walk miles without discomfort and have recommended Vionic to several of my friends who have all been delighted with their Vionic footwear.

Was recommended Vionic shoes by a friend as I have Plantar fasciitis. In the space of 4 weeks I have purchased 3 different pairs of Vionic shoes. Rio were the first purchased along with some slippers. I cannot tell you how much these have changed my life! Would definitely recommend Rio sandals. The prices are very reasonable when you take into consideration the cost of buying separate insoles for shoes, I paid £35 for a pair which are only suitable for full shoe or boots, and, did not help as much as Vionic’s! Before Vionic’s I was in agony towards the end of the day and the pain was unbearable! These have changed my life completely, I can now, as I used to, spend a lot of time on my feet and absolutely no pain! Can’t thank my friend enough for telling me about Vionic shoes! I am a 5 1/2 normally but as advised ordered half a size down and perfect fit! The 2 pairs of sandals and the slippers I have purchased all from the first try on are so comfortable. It’s amazing. Thank you for stopping the pain and changing my life! p.s. I will definitely be purchasing more of these amazing shoes in the not too distant future!

Previous review and description state that these are not suitable for narrow feet, I don’t consider myself to have narrow feet but these sandals were extremely wide and so I had to return them.
I have a lot of Vionic sandals but these were probably the cheapest looking ones I’ve come across, had I seen them in a shop I don’t think I would even try them on.
Sorry Vionic love your shoes normally but didn’t think these were up to the usual standard.
