***Many of the spring/summer ranges by Vionic and Strive are now reduced.***
So what’s new for 2019 and what are my favourites?
This season, I have increased the Vionic 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 (standard fit). The pretty Vionic Bella II is available in purple or red (wide fit). I’ve also brought back the the Vionic Pacific High Tide wedge, this time in navy and rose gold. For the first time, I have the Vionic Pacific Naples a wedge with Rhinestone detail 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 a sling-back wedge, 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.
With my range of Strive women’s footwear 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 women but I stock a limited range of men’s supportive footwear as well by Vionic.
The most popular ranges I stock, Vionic and Strive, are recognised by the American Podiatric Association as being good for your feet. Vionic come in standard or wide fit and Strive come in Standard fit. Both have a biomechanical footbed which can help with pain and posture. They are particularly good for over-pronation.
Women’s sizes range from 4-8 but I can order sizes 3 and 9 on request from some suppliers (Strive)
Mens’ sizes range from 7-11. Sometimes I can order larger sizes on request. (Vionic)
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.
