Established in 1979, Vionic's mission began with the work of renowned podiatrist Phillip Vasyli.
A pioneer and innovator in the field of lower-limb biomechanics, Vasyli created the first heat-moldable orthotic – called Orthaheel - to address the most common foot ailments. This low-cost option allowed patients to walk out of his practice feeling better than when they arrived.
The Orthaheel revolutionized the industry and paved the way for the Vionic brand’s science-infused style. Today, the Vionic Innovation Lab harnesses the expertise of some of the world's greatest minds in lower limb biomechanics As a result, a groundbreaking study shows Vionic's stylish range of shoes, sandals, boots and orthotics effectively alleviate heel pain.*
As a result, many Vionic shoes carry the American Podiatric Medical Association's Seal of Acceptance, with each product reviewed by a group of APMA podiatrists
