Footwear

The spring/summer ranges by Vionic and Strive are now in-stock. So what’s new and what are my favourites?

Vionic

This season, I have increased the sandal range, especially the flip flops due to popular demand. For ladies, the flip flops include the best-selling Vionic Islander and Vionic Islander Rhinestones with even more colours to choose from. The pretty Vionic Bella II will be available in purple, pewter or red. I’ve also brought back the the Vionic Pacific High Tide wedge, this time in navy, mauve and rose gold. For the first time, I have the Vionic Pacific Naples wedge which I think will sell well.

Then there’s the slip-on ranges of sandals and my favourite this year has to be Vionic Tropic Hayden in toffee suede, an elegant wedge sandal with a soft suede upper. There have to be espadrilles in the summer and this year I have chosen to stock  Vionic Aruba Coralina, very elegant with a summer dress or skirt.

Finally, the more supportive Vionic Rest Amber and Vionic Rest Farra are back in more colours. They work well with the velcro fastenings to give a good, secure fit. New this year is Vionic Tropic Violet, a supportive wedge sandal in black or chocolate leather if you prefer an elevated sandal but still need support.

For a more casual look, sneakers are right on-trend and I have both slip-on styles and lace-ups including Vionic Midi Splendid and Vionic Sunny Hattie. Trainers are always a useful addition to a spring/summer wardrobe so there’s the return of the Vionic Flex Sierra low-profile trainer, again in charcoal grey as well as Vionic Brisk Miles in blue.  Vionic Joey is a casual trainer with soft leather and breathable perforations which has sold well so it is returning  in pink, light grey and navy. The wide fit, soft leather and  deeper toe-box are helpful for ladies with a wide forefoot, bunions, hammer toes, etc.

Strive

Metallics, navy and warm tones are the colours for summer 2019 and Strive have brought back our old favourites. Back again this year is Strive Maui, my best-selling toe-post sandal in the Strive range. The hugely popular toe-ring sandals include Strive Capri, Strive Java, Strive Montauk and Strive Colorado.

Strive Montana is a great walking sandal and brilliant for ladies who need extra support. The velcro fastenings give a secure fit.

Last year, Strive introduced an ‘elevated’ range for ladies who like a slight heel. This year, I have introduced the Lucia and I particularly love the warm tones available.

Sneakers include the best-selling slip-on, Strive Florida, Strive Stowe and 2 lace-ups, Strive Maine and Strive Weston.

Most footwear are for ladies but I stock a limited range of men’s supportive footwear as well.

The most popular ranges I stock are by Vionic and Strive, recognised by the American Podiatric Association as being good for your feet.

Ladies sizes range from 4-8 but I can order sizes 3 and 9 on request from some suppliers.

Mens’ sizes range from 7-11. Sometimes I can order larger sizes on request.

Getting the right fit for your feet is very important so I offer a free consultation and fitting service in my surgery as well as a footwear review of your current footwear, by appointment.
