Who should buy the Vionic Miles
The Vionic Miles is a walking shoe designed for women. To meet the needs of the walking footwear aficionados, Vionic utilized lightweight and breathable materials plus cushioned midsole, then integrated them into the shoe. It is a solid option if:
- You want the convenience of having an all-in-one shoe suitable for workouts, walking, and even standing for long hours.
- A shoe that has a podiatrist-designed orthotic insole for your foot discomfort is what you need.
Enhanced outsole traction
The foam midsole of the Vionic Miles also serves as the outsole. This compound is made to be durable to endure the wear and tear associated with exercise and everyday use. The high-wear areas are lined with rubber to protect against abrasion and enhance traction of the underside.
Flex grooves help the foot move naturally during the heel-to-toe transition while the tread pattern grips the surface in multiple directions.
A shield against impact
Protecting the foot against impact is the EVA foam midsole. This compound is engineered to be durable and resilient, so it can accommodate natural foot bending without losing its shape. It features an ombre effect at the upper portion which adds to the overall style of the shoe.
Dissipating the shock
Inside the Vionic Miles is a removable EVA footbed. This element enhances the shock attenuation offered by the primary midsole. It is covered with mesh which aids in wicking moisture away from the foot. It also features the 1st Ray technology which has a soft part under the ball of the foot, allowing the first metatarsal to move freely.
The Vionic Miles' upper
The Vionic Miles utilizes a dual-layer mesh upper that provides a supportive coverage. The material is also breathable which helps in keeping the inside fresh. The interior has a smooth fabric lining that delivers a comfortable in-shoe feel.
Overlays against abrasions
Printed synthetic overlays line the toe box and the quarters. They protect the mesh from abrasion, so the material does not easily tear. Stitched-on TPU overlays form a cage at the midfoot which amplifies lateral support when the laces are tightened.
There’s also an overlay that wraps the heel, acting like a heel counter that steadies the rearfoot during exercises.
A traditional lace-up closure is found on the midfoot. Users can tighten or loosen the patterned laces to achieve a comfortable fit.
There’s also a tab at the back of the collar which wearers can utilize to pull up the shoe quickly. Locking the foot down is the lightly padded tongue and collar. They prevent chafing and keep the foot and ankle comfortable.
