I suffer with feet and ankle pain and these are just so comfy and have helped reduce pain whilst walking the dog



I have problem feet due to RA & joint damage, these are so comfortable,



I bought these a month ago and so comfortable I bought another pair of slightly different ones in navy. I have fallen arches and these fit perfectly and less pain. Walking a lot more.



This is my first order from Vionic but won’t be my last. I ordered a 4, my usual size, and they fit perfectly. They are so comfy.



I love that these come in wide fitting. Super comfy and lightweight.



I bought these trainers as I always have issues getting comfortable shoes and instep falls in. They were difficult to get on at first so thought they were going to hurt me initially like all other trainers I buy. From the minute I started walking in them they were so comfy. This is the second pair I’ve bought in a different colour and won’t go past them now

Honest m


I sourced these trainers by linking on foot pain,
I am very pleased with them as they look really nice and the comfort when walking is amazing,
I can’t indorse these enough



Love this trainer - wear all day as my house shoe



Omg this shoes is the best I ever had, it’s like someone holding your feet with so much love and care.

This style of trainer is absolutely what I need to get on with the task of re-learning how to walk well on one normal ankle and one that has been fused in position after a very nasty open broken ankle. I also suffer from occasional vertigo, so having things stable underfoot is important to me.

I knew that I'd FOUND the RIGHT SOLUTION as soon as I first stood up in these trainers. I was surprised at the unexpected level of stability by comparison with other trainer-style shoes (I note that the heel portion of the sole is very slightly flared-out in profile).

This design with the neoprene 'sock' extending up onto the foot also increases my stability, although it takes a bit of fiddling to insert my foot with the frozen ankle into the shoe. A shoehorn definitely helps, as does practice (I can now deal with the non-flexing ankle well enough to get the shoe on my foot without the shoehorn).

Along with the stability of this design, I very much appreciate the flexibility of the front section of the sole - as I have found that this makes it straightforward to use my fixed-ankle foot on the pedals of my car, unlike a stiff-soled trainer.

And I love the wide-ish fitting, with soft fabric uppers that are comfortable on my hammer-toes.

As a final bonus, these shoes are very lightweight on my feet - a total win-win-win-win for me!

I'm SO delighted with these, that I now own three pairs in three different colour-ways - two pairs for using outdoors and one that is being used as my go-to everyday 'house shoe.

The other thing I am absolutely delighted with is Vionic's return policy - even for shoes that are bought in their sale. Having been intrigued by Vionic's online advertising, when their sale started, I'd tried a couple of other designs of their shoes which didn't exactly suit me (for one thing - I realised that I needed to look for a lightweight shoe). And it was wonderful to be able to return these shoes, completely free of charge, via Hermes (including arranging a pickup at our rural address). The shoes I returned weren't quite right for me - but they had enough good features for me to continue trying other Vionic designs. I certainly hit the jackpot with this style!

And if you need to talk to someone at Customer Service, it's worth persisting on the line in these Covid times - as the Customer Representative I spoke with when arranging Hermes pickup could not have been more helpful.

I'm A Very Satisfied Customer!

I bought the Alma trainer and wore them once before the lace eyelet broke and literally snapped off whilst I was trying to pull the laces. Not happy at all and such a shame as they were so comfy.

Red Dawn


Bought these in the Dec sales along with the Miles & 2 pairs of Nooma flip flops. First time buyer, although I have heard a lot of positives about Vionic & their shoes. Bought these in size 4 (usual size), in Bluebell for my teenage daughter, who has flat feet & sore knees. She already wears orthotics in her shoes, but growing fast & I thought we’d try Vionic’s instead of buying shoes that her orthotics could fit into. Unfortunately there was not enough support for her. The trainers slipped at her heels, & neither of us had realised they were slip on shoes so no laces to tighten shoes! I tried on these trainers myself (same shoe size, but my feet aren’t as flat as hers) & these felt much looser than the Miles, which I also returned. The padding at the opening is very nice & soft, just the opening was too loose for us both. Plus, it was too high for my feet (dug in & was uncomfortable even when wearing for a little while).



I suffer with neuropathy, these are a godsend, I'm ordering another pair, ty



Ordered these trainers at the sale price and received them lees than 24 hours later. What a great service.

I am so pleased with the trainers - they are so comfortable- can’t wait to see if there are any new sandals coming up for the summer

So pleased to have discovered Vionic. These trainers are absolute relief to my feet, so light and comfortable. My feet and legs now carry me all day pain free . Thank you Vionic



Nice looking shoes but very small fitting sizewise, had to send them back.



I wanted a pair of Vionic trainers in the faux lace up style as I love Vionic arch support (I already have some slip on ones) but don’t want to have to wrestle for 5 minutes to get my feet in them. Unfortunately I couldn’t get my feet in due to a high fixed opening which was not clear from the description, so had to return.



I needed trainers with good support and was worried this pair would be rather bright colours and in fact the colour is pretty goes with most outfits and is not as bright as it looked on screen. They give my foot good support and my slight arthritis and marching fracture are unnoticed now after a fortnight. I am so pleased with them. You can wear them anywhere because they look good and you feel comfortable and that shows. Thank you.



Weightless, comfortable, great for flat feet. Walking is a pleasure, now. My feet and legs don’t hurt any more

Great shoes , suffer with high arch and dodgy ankle and these are the only shoes I can wear without being in pain , will definitely order more :) x



After successfully buying slippers and sandals from Vionic, I opted for Alma trainers. The shoe itself was a good fit but the seam sewn into the back heel of the shoe was extremely uncomfortable and would have caused blisters.
Really disappointing after owning 2 super comfy pairs of Vionics.



I have had these trainers a few weeks now, and they have hardly been off my feet. They feel so supportive and comfortable. I broke my ankle three months ago and my arch has collapsed a bit so my foot loves the extra support, it just feels like it is held in the right place. My physio approves on the insole as well. I am definitely going to be buying more. I find them the right fit and love that they are wide enough for me. I did have to buy a shoe horn, as they are a bit snug to get your foot into, but this works well. I will definitely be buying more. I hope they last well.



Nice trainers but a little tight to get on. Thought they would give and have worn them twice but have given me blisters so unfortunately not a great fit and as worn can’t return. However they are really nice trainers and maybe half size bigger would have been far better!



I’m a fan of Vionic. Very comfortable. I buy a half
Size bigger as the sizing seems slightly different for
UK. Nice and supportive without feeling like barges on your feet.



So glad I bought these. I hadn’t heard of the brand before but have been suffering so long with plantar fasciitis that I thought I’d take a risk. I’m so glad I did, they are very comfortable and supportive, I haven’t worn any other shoe since I got them. Love the colour too. I’m definitely going to be buying more from this company.

Poor Mummy


I bought these for my daughter, the most expensive pair of trainers yet, as she’s only 12. She has stated they’re the best shoes ever. I might have to get my own pair.



Love the shoe but seems tighter than previous pair same type. Need shoe horn to get them on. Good support.



Have got 3 pairs now, they are fantastic, would not be able to walk much without them, now I bounce around, yaaay go me.



Love Vionic shoes. Have bought several pairs since having agonising planta fasciitis a few years ago. These trainers have great arch support, no need for orthotic insoles. Light and spongy to walk on. Would definitely recommend.



I had never heard of Vionic shoes and came across them by chance online - I don't normally like to buy shoes online as I have 2 different sized feet so like to try on in a shop. I decided to chance it with these as they were in the sale and I am so glad I did - I will be buying Vionic again - really supportive and comfortable shoes.



I’ve been looking at this trainer all summer, I eventually got them in the sale.
I have to wear a heal insert in the base, so this lifts the foot which in turn means my foot rubs on the fabric behind the laces. Not a problem.
However Vionic are superb trainers and I really don’t know what I’d do without them as my feet are completely flat & painful.
Thank you Vionic.



Really nice shoes but sadly not deep enough for my feet so sadly returned.



I was looking for some casual trainers just to do shorter walks. I was recommended Vionic as a make by my podiatrist after treatment for plantar fasciitis a couple of years ago and have purchased other Vionic shoes since - which have been brilliant and really supportive for my feet. These trainers were no exception and they are super comfy, very light and it really does feel like I am walking on air. I am very grateful that Vionic does half sizes too. I ordered them on the Friday and they arrived on the Saturday - great service, thank you.



Had to return these as very difficult to get my foot in. There is no opening in the gusset so your foot has to fit through the opening in the top. Not easy with wide feet and bending down too long an issue. Lovely looking though so disappointed



I purchased the Alma trainers a month ago. These are so comfortable, flexible and supportive to my foot. I suffer from a neuroma (pinched nerve) in the ball of my foot. The Vionic foot sole design has really helped to reduce the pain experienced when walking and exercising. I have quite hot feet and have thankfully found the trainers quite breathable in their material. Just have to get used to not tying up the laces as they are slip on trainers and the laces are more a decorative feature. My girls 13yrs and 9yrs picked these out for me in the blue and grey colour and they look really cool!



Have been buying Vionics for a few years mainly to help my knee problem. I have now had my knee op and still find that Vionics are the best for comfort and support my new knee beautifully. Thank you



I love my shoes thank you very comfortable



Worn every day since receiving them. Very supportive and comfortable



I purchased these after getting a neuroma in my foot and finding walking really painful. The delivery was next day, even during lockdown, and although I had to send the first pair back as they were a bit small, the half size up arrived the following day and were a perfect fit. I am usually a size 5 but needed to go up that half size, I guess due to having the orthotic inside.

I was so pleased with the comfort, style and colour the following day I ordered the Aimmy in the charcoal and I absolutely love them. Again, delivery was next day and I have lived in these Vionic trainers ever since. In fact, it is easier to walk with Vionics on with the neuroma than it is to walk barefoot and I am sure these are aiding my recovery.

I recommended Vionic to a friend and she has purchased a different style, but has reported that she is so pleased with them. She has a bunion and has found them so comfortable. I am glad I have discovered Vionic and will certainly be purchasing more in future.



Very comfortable, accommodate my wide feet and I love you don't need to wear socks.
