More Than Just Cozy

Slippers should do a lot more than keep your feet warm. Even though you are relaxing or working at home, slippers need to protect your feet and support your arch. Unfortunately, many slippers that seem comfortable and may indeed be warm (maybe too warm?) can actually cause or worsen foot problems. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to find slippers that offer arch support at all, let alone excellent arch support.

We have found that Vionic slippers, designed by a podiatrist for both women and men, are the most supportive house slipper available. We recommend these regularly to our patients who have foot problems that require support and protection even when walking around the house. This includes people with heel pain, ball of the foot pain, top of foot pain, and big toe joint pain, as well as diabetic patients with or without neuropathy for whom it’s especially important to keep feet safe. Vionic slippers will also accommodate orthotics.


Vionic slippers offer a biomechanical supportive foot bed with a deep heel cup to help stabilize, support, and realign the feet back to a more natural position. The Orthaheel technology used is proven to reduce excess pronation, a contributing factor to foot pain, especially for those with flat feet. In addition, unlike most other options, Vionic slippers are wider so that arch support spreads weight more evenly over a larger surface area. This allows for better support that is still extremely comfortable for most people.


Vionic slippers are tough and easy to clean, and the rubber outsole features a wave pattern tread that provides stability and helps prevent slipping. Even for people who don’t currently have any foot problems or pain, wearing Vionic slippers will help problems from developing in the future. Besides being cozy, comfy, and good for your feet, these slippers are stylish and cute!  The biggest problem might be that you’ll never want to take them off!
Vionic slippers are available at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates, located at 10 Heartland Dr. in Bloomington. If you have any questions, you may call 309-661-9975 or visit them online at heartlandfootandankle.com.
