Vionic flip flops (toe post sandals) are incredibly popular for their beautiful styles, outstanding support, and superlative comfort. There’s a great new model out this season that was inspired by European styling: the Floriana!
The design team at Vionic actually traveled to Europe for inspiration. With stays in Paris, Barcelona, and Rome, the design team noted the latest trends and the popularity of various types of style elements that could be incorporated into Vionic designs.
What the design team found in its travels was surprising to it. The team saw a wide variety of unexpected mixes of materials, layers of accents and embellishments, and bold colors. Textured prints layered with beads and metal studs added fashionable elements.
As with all Vionic with Orthaheel Technology footwear, the Floriana contains a deep heel cup and an aggressive arch support. These elements help align your body properly so that common aches and pains may be alleviated. The optimal alignment and shape of each shoe help reduce overpronation, which can directly affect heel pain, knee pain, and even back pain. I have found that these features really help me when I have a bout of Plantar Fasciitis.
What makes the style of the Floriana so special? First, it’s a comfortable toe post. Second, it’s a DRESSY-looking flip flop. (I have worn these very successfully with maxi dresses and they look great together.) The vibrant colors – Teal, Pink, Bronze, Natural, White, and Black – are textured for visual interest as well as a great pop of color. But that’s not all! Atop the straps are gorgeous beads with sequin embellishments around them. All of these features make for an interesting, feminine-styled shoe that can go with both dressy as well as casual attire.
