Two words: shoes + sale. Music to our fashion-loving, budget-conscious ears. Even better? These shoes, all from podiatrist-approved brand Vionic, are on crazy sale—but only for a limited time.

Vionic isn’t messing around. They’ve discounted 33 styles, many in multiple colorways, 65 (!) percent off. We’re talking strappy sandals, chic block heels, sporty sneakers, and ballet flats that somehow, with a little bit of Vionic magic, feel supportive. With such serious discounts, you know what that means: sizes are selling out fast. (Good luck to all my fellow 8.5-size footed friends. Our size always seems to sell out first.) No dilly dallying, you hear me?

What we love most about Vionic is that the brand's shoes not only look good, but feel good, with podiatrist-approved arch support, shock absorption, and stability—all without emulating something your grandma wore in the ‘90s. Vionic shoes support natural alignment from the ground up, whether you have plantar fasciitis, flat feet, or simply want to be able to wear a pair of heels without hobbling in pain.

“The Vionic brand was developed by a podiatrist and approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association,” says Chanel J. Perkins, DPM. “You can’t go wrong with this brand!”

Time to get your shop on. We’ve narrowed down a handful of our favorite Vionic styles that are currently on sale, but if you don’t see your size keep searching on Vionic's page. Your feet (and budget!) will thank you.
