Sandals and flip-flops often earn a bad rap as the least supportive footwear—but that’s not always the case. Podiatrist-approved footwear brand Vionic is all about creating supportive shoes, and its collection of comfortable sandals is no exception. Every pair promotes the foot’s natural alignment through a combination of arch support, stability, and cushioning. 

If it seems too good to be true, consider this: A peer-reviewed study by Vionic of its contoured sandals found they were just as effective at reducing chronic heel pain as the brand’s orthotic inserts. It’s proof that comfy sneakers aren’t the only summer staple that can offer all-day support.

As if you needed yet another reason to test out Vionic’s supportive footwear, the brand is also Oprah-approved. The talk show queen not only wore a pair on the cover of O, The Oprah Magazine twice, but she’s also included at least 3 different Vionic styles in her annual Favorite Things list. The verdict is still out on whether she’s had a chance to try out a pair of the supportive sandals just yet.

Even better? Tons of Vionic footwear is on sale for up to 40% off right now ahead of Memorial Day. Along with Oprah’s favorite Avery Pro slip-on sneaker and a stylish pair of Jade Slingback Flats, a wide range of the brand’s cozy sandals and flip-flops are included in the sale. Plus, the company is offering free shipping and 60-day return windows to ensure your purchase is fuss-free.
