Join me for the 2014 Vionic Walkabout Challenge starting February 1st. In support of National Heart Health Month, this annual walk encourages people to do what our bodies were designed to do – walk! The beauty of walking is that you can do it anywhere, in any weather. If you live in Ohio, you will likely be walking outside in the snow or indoors on a track or treadmill.
Walking as little as 30 minutes a day can lower your risk of heart disease by 40%! It can also help improve blood pressure, reduce risk of Type 2 Diabetes, improve mental wellbeing and more.

Walking as Exercise
Walking strengthens our entire body and takes no special skills or equipment – just the right shoes. I’ve been in wearing and in love with the Vionic brand with Orthaheel technology for a couple years now. If you don’t exercise or walk because of foot pain like 72% of Americans then you’ve gotta tray Vionic Footwear with Orthaheel Technology. Their footwear includes a removable orthotic footbed that supports your feet, alleviating foot pain, improving posture, balance, and keeps your lower legs aligned.
Walking is a safe form of exercise that the whole family can enjoy doing together. My family takes walks year-round – our puppy requires it! We enjoy getting outdoors together. It is a time to not only exercise but explore new trails, our surroundings, and bond as a family.
Dr. Weil’s shares about the benefits of walking and having proper footwear for each activity to support your feet in this video.
If your sneakers are tired and worn, do yourself and feet a favor and check out Vionic Footwear with Orthaheel Technology.
This Winter, I’m loving the Adrie Ankle Boots. It is a casual ankle boot that I can wear all season long with jeans, leggings, or any kind of slacks. They are stylish with full-grain leather with a buckled instep strap. They are so comfortable too – which is essential for me! The leather is soft and there is a large gore panel on the outside for extra flexibility and comfort.
These ankle boots are made for trips to the store on slippery parking lots or casual strolls outside with a rubber outsole that has a patterned tread for traction.
There is a zip entry on the inside quarter that makes them easy to put on and take off.
Don’t forget the Orthaheel Technology that is built right into the Adrie Ankle Boots. The orthotic footbed will help stablize your body with each step, offering relief from heel pain, foot pain and more by giving you the support you need.
I use to always have feet that hurt – always – until I tried Vionic Footwear. Year round, I enjoy my walking shoes with built-in orthodic footbed and my flats with Orthaheel technology, in the Summer, I enjoy orthotic sandals, and in the winter, my boots keep me warm and balanced.
