Vionic OrthaHeel Sneakers + ToeSox Review

When I think “orthotics shoes” nothing like these amazing lens-flare print sneakers come to mind. I mean, not even close. As a zealous fan of comfortable shoes, it’s rather exciting to see the innovative strides footwear design is taking, specifically in terms of comfort & technology fused into good looking shoe. That being said, socks are having their moment too!

Check out the full review of these Vionic “Tourney” sneakers, along with a couple of really neat (or weird – depending who you ask, really!) socks with toes & without, from ToeSox c/o Sole Provisions!

I love wearing sneakers, because as far as comfort goes, they reign supreme. However, I never realized how much more comfortable Vionic orthaheel sneakers could be! I think they might have ruined all other sneakers for me. No, really, I’m serious.

Although this is not a running shoe per se (as in, not designed specifically for any sport, but more as an ath-leisure style) it’s the comfiest one I own so far. And it’s because of the special orthaheel technology: a biomechanic orthotic footbed that naturally aligns one’s feet and may help to relieve heel pain by reducing over-pronation. I love how the removable microfiber-covered EVA orthotic insole really “holds” the foot in place.

Apparently, Vionic shoes are meant to take some getting used to, but so far I’m enjoying my foot feeling like it’s being cradled & quasi-massaged! These Vionic sneakers also fit true to size & fit my narrow feet comfortably.

ToeSox: Yoga Socks with Toes & Without

I’ve seen socks with toes as a novelty product, but never as serious sock “gear”.  And I’m not being sarcastic either, these ToeSox mean serious business! Who’d have thought socks could be packed so many features?

The ToeSox collection is immense (and Sole Provisions seems to carry most of it!), varying from ankle to over-the-knee designs; five toe socks, no toe socks; under foot grips & without. Each in a slew of patterns & colors. Useful for yoga, pilates, dance or for everyday wear, ToeSox definitely has you covered. Literally.

Aside from obviously being designed as five toe socks (to help spread toes naturally), there’s much more to these tropical print socks: they also have a built-in arch support band that provides a light pressure to support and lift. And there I was thinking that the extra stretch in the middle of the sock was to keep the “toes” from slipping off the….well, toes! Which they do, btw 😉

These socks aren’t right/left foot interchangeable either. Each foot gets its own properly constructed sock, thank you very much!

Yep, they feel a little weird at first, but take very little time to get used to. I absolutely love the beautiful print & colors, that are so incredibly vivid. The only observation would be that the thicker elasticized bands at the top of the socks are very tight (and this coming from someone with small calves).

My favorite Toesox socks style is surely this “scrunch knee” style with feather print! Great for yoga, dance, pilates or more, they’re as pretty as they are functional.  Speaking of functional, these pack in even more elements than the crew socks:

  • Ankle & arch bands for support
  • Fitted heels to prevent bunching
  • Patented non-slip grip sole
  • Half toes that allow for a more “barefoot” experience
  • Can be worn high up or scrunched low
  • Left & Right sock

Toesox No Toe Socks for Yoga

As the first style, these are rather too tight for me at the top when worn up, but other than that, these grippy knee-high socks look great and feel soft & cozy against the skin. And fit true to size (I’m a size 8 women’s & their size S fits just right). Did I mention how pretty the feather print is!?
