After six months of almost exclusively wearing slippers, flip flops, or no shoes at all, our feet are killing us. We totally should’ve taken the experts’ advice to stop going barefoot at home months ago but alas, we didn’t. So we found ourselves Googling ‘podiatrist-approved shoes’ in an effort to save our aching arches. Which is how we came across Vionic, a supportive shoe brand founded by a podiatrist.

And before you ask, no, they’re not those clunky sneakers your grandma’s doctor told her to wear. Vionic boasts a range of sneakers, boots, flats and more that are so stylish, they’ve been spotted on celebs like Kristin Cavallari, Alexa Chung and even Oprah. In fact, the former queen of daytime TV loves the brand’s comfy shoes so much, she’s featured them on her Favorite Things list four times. That’s practically unheard of.
