My Thoughts

A couple of weeks ago I told you about the Vionic Walkabout Challenge and since then I received a pair of Vionic Venture Walker shoes to help me complete it comfortably, and in style!

I am one of those people that finds a brand and sticks with it so it’s hard for me to try something new. I always buy Nike’s for my tennis shoes. They are comfortable and stylish and I’m familiar with their fit so I know what to expect.

I was hesitant to try a new shoe but when I saw the Vionic Walker I thought they were super cute and stylish and actually reminded me of my Nike’s. I ordered them in my regular size 7 1/2. I’m always scared to order shoes online because each company seems to have a different fit. I know that Nike’s tend to run small and tight on me in my normal size.

When I got the shoes I was instantly impressed with the quality and look. The pictures actually didn’t do them justice and I was very pleasantly surprised. I was even happier when I tried them on to find they fit! I think they are slightly loose on me but a 7 probably would have been too tight. After wearing them for a week, I don’t notice them being loose at all. I think I was just used to the tighter fit of Nike.

These also have a higher arch than I’m used to. I know this means more support but it does take some getting used to! However, after a few days I didn’t even feel that either. These didn’t require any breaking in (other than getting used to the feel) and didn’t leave me sore or with blisters. It’s rare that I can just replace a tennis shoe without any breaking in or discomfort.

At $99.95 they are slightly more than what I paid for my Nike’s but they are definitely more supportive and just as stylish. I have already gotten a lot of compliments on this shoe!

It comes in five different colors. I just went with black because most of my workout clothes are dark and I love the pop of blue.

I have been participating in the Vionic Walkabout Challenge so you may have seen some photos like this one over the past few weeks.
