The ugly sandal–and I’m cringing a little as I write this–yes, the ugly sandal has made it’s way into my life. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, it’s a movement endorsed by hipsters, very old ladies and Vogue. I’m pretty sure that the gold leather makes mine non-normcore. Well that’s a relief.

If you must know, I’m no stranger to fugly. I’m a secret Ugg Dakota lover, but only in the privacy of my own home. Still there were no plans to embrace the ugly sandal trend, but I had a little help. These showed up on my doorstep from Vionic at the end of Friday, and without remembering the part about how they might provide almost instant relief from my lower back pain and stiff neck (thank you computer), I slipped them on and headed out for Mexican food. Vionics have a very high arch support, or maybe it’s not that it’s high, it’s just that they have arch support, which felt a little strange since none of my ballet flats from Gap to Chanel have it. The sensation was so unusual I had to keep them on. I was already liking the way that they felt, but when I looked down, my new Orthoheels took some getting used to. Then I remembered all the hours I stand while I work these days and reconsidered the drawbacks of form over substance otherwise known as how to make yourself feel guilty for having shallow thoughts and expensive shoe taste.

When I finally read the fine print, I learned Vionic Orthoheel technology, built directly into all of their shoes, provides almost instant relief from many kinds of lower body and leg stress so they’re great for athletes as well as any one who suffers from leg, hip, foot, spine, etc aches and pains. I’ve been wearing mine all weekend and I’m hooked.

Thoughts? 
Are you on the ugly shoe train or off, like so off you can’t be my friend if you see me wearing these?
{Please don’t judge me until you’ve walked a mile in my ugly sandals!}
And that’s my #solestory for the week.
