Introducing Vionic – Boots And Shoes With An Orthaheel Technology

Hi Everyone, I’m posting these gorgeous Vionic boots a day late! I did intend to post yesterday but shooting photos over the weekend were scuppered by storm Brian! I didn’t want to let Brian get the better of me, and gave it my best shot but the photos were hilarious!

I wanted you to see these in all their splendour!



vionic shoes and boots


I was staying in Newcastle with friends at the weekend and the countryside where they live is breathtaking. I thought this would be the golden opportunity to share the idea behind Vionic brand with you but it just wasn’t meant to be. I wanted you to see these boots in all there splendour and Hurricane Brian said NO! I actually drove through it at it’s worse and it was pretty scary!


vionic boots


Have you heard of the Vionic brand before? Designed and developed by a group of specialist for sufferers of heel pain  (plantar fasciitis) and or poor posture resulting in back pain, especially when you’re on your feet a lot. The brainwave was to develop a special inner sole that supports the arch of the foot, a biomechanical footbed to help solve the problem while you still look stylish in the designs available. These are available for men too, so if your man suffers from the above problem, take a look for him too! I tend to suffer from a bit of back pain after a long day out shopping, so I’m hoping these will help.

When I was invited to review a pair of boots or shoes from the Vionic brand, I was surprised at how many up to date styles there were available. Sandals were gorgeous and very tempting although a bit late in the year to choose those. I needed a pair of really decent knee-high boots that would go with literally everything in my wardrobe and so I chose these Thalia Knee-high boots in a gorgeous Tan colour.

There were many more that caught my eye though! Take a look at my other favourites the Ronnie Booties and these newly added Reagan Mules would have got chosen if they were available when I ordered But the Thalia is everything I thought they were going to be, buttery soft leather with a mid heel and a roomy calf & I must add with a 15-inch circumference. Perfect for tucking your Jeans or jeggings into. I did actually road trip the boots in Newcastle on a shopping trip to Fenwicks and I can vouch for how comfortable they are. You can feel the support in the foot arch.

And yes, it’s still super windy!

I’ve chosen to style the boots casually here, a skirt, long sleeve T and a knitted waistcoat. Pretty warm for this time of year and yes it’s still super windy! I think these Tahlia boots will go great with a floaty boho dress too though. I love the rich colour of them.


I love Tans, Browns and Autumn colours. These boots will go with all my favourite colours!



The heel is the perfect height (2.4in) and I wanted to show you how soft and supple the leather is. You can see here while I’m sitting how soft and moveable the leather is. As soon as I told the mother about the Vionic brand, as per usual she was ahead of me! “ooh I’ve been eyeing those up on QVC” she said! They do lovely slippers! I think that’s a Christmas hint there!

Let me know what your favourite Vionic shoes are!

I also wanted to add that the sole is brilliant! It’s a good none slip rubber sole that will be perfect for those icy days later in the year!

I’m really pleased with the boots and I hope you will take a look and tell me what your favourites are.

    These look beautiful and I love your outfit, especially your vest. I wonder if these come in flats. I need comfy shoes since I have Multiple Sclerosis. Thank you. (From the 40 Plus FB group)

    These shoes are so perfect for fall! I definitely need a pair of shoes like these that help posture. It is so important to take care of your body, so I love that these help you do this.
    Thank you for linking up this week!

    Great boots. Just the right heel for me. Thanks you for linking your post up to #TweensTeensBeyond

    I love these. I have a few pairs of tan boots because they go with everything and the fact these are comfy too is great
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes 🙂

    They are super stylish Laurie and such a warm pretty color. But the best has to be that it protects your foot from pain.As we get on in years comfort takes precedence!

  6. November 3, 2017 / 11:14 am

    I love Vionics! They really do make a difference. My podiatrist told me to get them and I am so glad he made that recommendation. I have several pairs of sandals but now I am looking to add booties. They are so comfortable!

  7. November 2, 2017 / 3:11 pm

    I have a pair of tan knee high boots that I bought 15 years ago. They are so comfortable and go with everything but I have been secretly keeping my eye out for a replacement. These look like the perfect height and I like the sound of the inner sole too. Hope you had a great weekend. It was pretty windy in Norfolk too! #TweensTeensBeyond

    Beautiful boots–and I love your skirt too. Thanks for sharing on #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty!

  9. November 1, 2017 / 6:12 pm

    I wear the sandals and love them. I can walk and shop all day in the sandals. I love these boots though boots aren’t what I need right now. lol

  10. November 1, 2017 / 4:59 pm

    I never heard of these. Will definitely check them out. Thanks!

    Isn’t it nice that Vionic makes such stylish shoes that are great for people with foot pain? Gorgeous boots!

      Yes it is Cathy. I’m lucky to not have this foot ailment but the boots are sure comfortable! xx

  13. October 29, 2017 / 5:35 pm

    Laurie, I love how you’ve styled the boots. Just so autumnally smart casual. Gorgeous knitted waistcoat. I have some sandals from this brand but as I don’t have the heel condition they are uncomfortable on me after awhile. I also want to tell you that you look so pretty in these pics. All that clinic work and the make up experiments seem to be a grand investment.

      Thank you so much Anna, such kind words. I find the boots really comfortable actually, even though I don’t have any foot problems. As for the beauty treatments, oh wow they have made such a difference xx

    Lovely boots! When it comes to foot problems I’ve had the lot – plantar fasciitis, bunions, tendonitis. Running has definitely taken its toll. I’m now quite limited as to what I can wear. You’ve chosen a great classic style that will go with lots of different outfits. I love your skirt and sleeveless cardigan. Going to pop over for a browse of the Vionic website!

    I like the sound of these. I often have to wear an insole to support my arch, having support built it would be a huge bonus. #pocolo

      Do take a look, Louisa! They have special supports too. xx

    I love the look! Warm, elegant, balanced, delicate … I love the floral print skirt, it is a wonderful combination of colors. And the rest of the team seduces by its simplicity and aesthetic balance. A beautiful example of how excess is not the way …

      Thank you Gail. Yes, I remember the sandals. I’m pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the boots are and I think the whole idea of giving feet sufferers stylish shoes as well as comfort

  22. October 26, 2017 / 10:26 am

    I’m obsessed with leather boots and those are no exception, Laurie! They’re absolutely gorgeous. I suffer with bunions (which, in turn gives me knee and back pain) and so I’m always on the look out for shoes that will support my feet properly. You look absolutely fabulous!
    P.S I bet driving through storm Brian was scary!!!

  26. October 25, 2017 / 10:32 pm

    Good choice, Laurie. I’ve been on the website but it’s useful to see footwear in action, and these are beauties. I suffered from plantar fasciitis during the spring for the first time and it is screamingly painful, literally. Think it’s lurking so I’m looking at the brand with some urgency :-(.
    But on a brighter note – that skirt! Is it M&S? I’ve had the skirt lurking (that word again!) in my photo folder for a few weeks. So tempted now that I see it styled so cleverly by you, lovely lady.
    Hugs, x.
    P.s. I tried photos on Saturday, I’m not posting what Brian did to my hair!!

      October 29, 2017 / 12:50 pm

      Thank you Mary. This skirt is around 15 years old! I got it in H&M. There are so many lovely floral skirts around though xx I’m wondering what Brian has done to your hair? Let me know if you need help with anything xx
