Want to take a walk in Oprah’s footsteps? Try doing it in Vionic comfort shoes, a brand that appeared on her 2017 list of “Oprah’s Favorite Things.” Now, the influencer has gone into her shoe closet, selecting Vionic’s Valeri spring ’17 espadrille to wear for the cover shot of the August issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. This follows Winfrey’s choice of the brand’s spring ’18 Hattie espadrille, for the photo on the cover of the May issue.
However, you won’t have to pay top dollar this season, with a range of styles from flip-flops to ankle booties, available online at discounted prices.
The technology, developed by an Australian podiatrist, is designed to promote natural alignment from the ground up through an biomechanical footbed that naturally hugs your arches and optimizes support. Even heels and wedges offer enhanced comfort through forefoot cushioning, arch support and a deep heel cup.
Here, FN has done the shopping for you with a selection of styles on sale now.
