I recently had the chance to try out a new type of walking shoe called the Vionic Zen Walkers. These shoes are extremely comfortable because they have a First Ray technology that promotes stability and assists in forefoot mobility.
Developed by leading podiatrist Phil Vasyli, Vionic footwear counteracts the daily grind of walking on hard and unnatural surfaces, providing much-needed relief from pain in your feet, knees, legs and lower back. Featuring patent pending built-in Orthaheel orthotic technology, they realign feet to their natural (neutral) position, allowing wearers to step softly and stay stylish!
Vionic with Orthaheel Technology offers the only shoes recommended by both the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and renowned integrative medicine doctor, Andrew Weil, MD. Vionic (and specifically the ZEN) is also worn and endorsed by celebrity fitness trainer Juliet Kaska’s (clientele includes Kerry Washington, Ali Larter, Stacy Keibler, Pink, Kate Walsh and more).
To be honest, these are not the most stylist pair of shoes I have ever owned, but definitely would be good for a vacation or a festival when I know I will be walking or dancing all day!
I received these shoes because they are the official shoe of the Vionic Walkabout, which is a 28-day campaign, also sponsored by Dr. Andrew Weil and celebrity trainer Juliet Kaska, which encourages the public to walk for 30 minutes a day for their heath.
You can sign up for the Walkabout and pledge to walk every day for 28 days. Once you sign up, you will receive weekly tips from Juliet Kaska and health guru Dr. Weil and have the chance to win prizes including a trip to LA). This post is a little bit late since my blog was down, but I encourage you to all sign up and continue the walking challenge through April.
