FOOTWEAR: The Pure Comfort and Support of Vionic Nala Sandals

As adults we can be pretty bad at keeping our feet appropriately supported, despite spending so much time/money on ensuring our children's feet are fully supported. As someone who suffers from flat feet and increased swelling both during and post pregnancy I know all too well how uncomfortable it can be. During my recent pregnancy I had such swollen feet from around 30 weeks, no matter how much time I spent with my legs raised they just wouldn't go down. The top of my feet became extremely sensitive as the skin was so tight and my soles were therefore put under a lot of pressure. The fact that my feet were already flat meant that standing for any length of time became pretty painful, especially when I hadn't ensured my feet were supported appropriately.


Vionic is a brand that offer unique podiatrist-designed support built in seamlessly into modern footwear. The original FMT Technology in Vionic shoes supports you from the ground up, it helps to re-align the foot into its natural position to help prevent flat feet. In turn this helps to improve the alignment in your legs and back when walking, which can help ease back pain. Perhaps due to my flat feet or my rather large bump during pregnancy, I had quite a few issues with back ache. I had trapped nerve after trapped nerve and at points could barely walk, they just wouldn't dislodge. Wearing supportive footwear from Vionic helps to keep everything aligned properly, giving pregnant ladies that much needed relief from back/feet pains.
According to Vionic's research, over 80% of women will experience uncomfortable swelling and feet pain during pregnancy. The additional pressure of natural weight gain and fluid retention can cause pregnant women to experience lasting foot health problems. Luckily Vionic has a stylish yet classic range of shoes, sandals and boots suitable for all seasons and occasions. All of which offer the support needed, as well as being outstanding quality and available in a range of colours/sizes.
This summer I've been wearing the Vionic Nala Sandals* and they've really helped reduce my feet/back pain both during and post pregnancy. These sandals have three key features that work together to provide pure comfort and support for your feet:

Midsole - Microfiber wrapped EVA midsole absorbs shock, reducing stress on your feet, ankles and knees.

Outsole - Durable rubber outsole with a patterned tread provides traction on a variety of surfaces.

Footbed - FMT Technology is biomechanically designed to hug your arches and support your feet in comfort. Vionic sandals' built-in orthotic is shown to be effective in helping to treat heel pain.

I honestly can't express how comfortable these are, even on those hot summer days when sandals usually rub, become slippery or your feet start to burn (does anyone else get this?!). The part in between your toes is very flexible, which makes it comfortable and it hasn't rubbed at all. All this sunshine recently has meant I've been wearing them most days, giving them the true test!
Do you think your shoes/sandals fully support your feet?

Feel free to leave a comment - I love reading every single one :)

  13. Since becoming a mum (and through pregnancy) I have noticed my feet have changed and I definitely look out for shoes that are comfortable. If they then look smart, like these one that such a massive bonus. x

  14. For my first one, I have swelling on my legs and had a trapped nerve on my left leg just below the hip and had been limping until I delivered her! It was there for at least throughout the third trimester! My second pregnancy wasn't that bad except for the trapped nerve again! Reading your post, I am thinking if it would be my flats (I always wear flats)! Wish I knew about something like this before!

  19. I don't think my feet are well supported in most of my shoes and end up buying cushions for my feet to rest them on.
