- The Vionic Bryant is a slip-on walking trainer crafted specifically for a man’s foot. It is meant to support the wearer and keep him comfortable throughout the day. Even though it looks like a casual sneaker, the footwear is designed to perform and feel like a sporty trainer.
- The shoe employs the Orthaheel Technology in its sole unit. Its orthopedic properties help in bringing back the natural foot alignment as well as reducing overpronation.
The Vionic Bryant comes in men’s sizes only, ranging from US 7 to 13 with half sizes in between. The shoe caters to standard foot dimensions as it is only available in a D – Medium profile. The slip-on construction of the shoe, paired with a pull tab at the back, allows for a fast and easy on-and-off action.
The platform of the Bryant employs the same type of outsole as the Vionic Tate. Made of a sturdy rubber compound, it reinforces the forefoot and the heel sections as these areas are more prone to abrasion. The diamond-shaped lugs are placed throughout the rubber to prevent slippage.
The flex grooves are strategically placed in the forefoot. They aid in keeping this section pliable to accommodate the natural foot flexion.
The primary platform of the shoe is made of a full-length EVA compound. It creates a layer of consistent cushioning and impact protection.
Directly under the foot, a removable EVA insert is found. This podiatrist-designed compound features the Orthaheel Technology which is meant to provide arch support and bring back the natural foot alignment. It also prevents excessive rolling of the inner side of the foot.
The Vionic Bryant sports a slip-on design with a pull tab at the heel to help the wearer slide in and out smoothly. The gore inserts on the sides make the upper stretch when the footwear is being put on.
The unit is made of a soft suede material. It provides a smooth and snug support while also rendering a classic casual look to the trainer. Inside, a soft textile lining contributes to the pleasant in-shoe experience and keeps the foot free of irritation.
