When I got the diagnosis of Spondylolisthesis (slipped disc) and Pars Fracture of my spine, I assumed that the only shoes that would give me the support I needed would be "ugly shoes."
I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong....and....I was wrong!

I could win a Shopping Spree for the most pins!
I had never heard of Vionic shoes prior to a few weeks ago, but when I heard about this shoe that was both classy and designed by a podiatrist, Phillip Vasyli, I couldn't wait to give them a spin.
The Olivia Ballet Flat (pictured above) designed with Orthaheel Technology, is brand NEW and now being sold online at orthaheelusa.com.
I no longer have to choose between style or comfort when it comes to shoes!
There's nothing like trying to find a stylish shoe, only to be able to wear it for 30 minutes or so before your back starts aching and your toes begin to go numb.
Honestly, when I took these shoes out of the box, they looked like they'd be like any other ballet flat - unsupportive and just itchin' to give me a blister. Nope.
These Olivia Ballet Flats are slightly magical, with an incredible arch support (unlike most shoes I have). I have found myself slipping on these shoes when I'm simply doing chores around the house, because they are THAT comfortable. Did I mention that in addition to my slipped disc, I'm almost 6 months pregnant? So, as you might imagine I have multiple reasons for the need of supportive shoes.

Well, I think I'm going to go on a little hunt to see what other styles Vionic has to offer with the Orthaheel Technology because I think 4 more months of wearing just this one shoe until the new baby arrives, just ain't gonna cut it.
