Sole Provisions is an online retailer specializing in shoes that combine fashion and comfort. I recently had the opportunity to check out their website and receive a pair from either their Orthaheel or FitFlop line to review.
Of course, being the detail-oriented person that I am, I immediately spent quite a bit of time browsing their website to see what their products were all about. I was quite impressed by the selection of styles, ranging from cute flats to functional sandals to even boots.
Also being a casual dress kind of girl, I was definitely interested in the comfort aspect. The FitFlop shoes all feature a patent pending Microwobbleboard midsole that not only redistributes pressure more evenly along the bottom of the foot, but also provides excellent stability and support for amazing walking comfort, while the Orthaheel styles feature a built-in, lightweight biomechanical footbed that supports the feet while helping to realign the lower legs and improve posture.
The Sole Provisions website is extremely easy to navigate, with great search filters to narrow down your choices until you find the perfect pair for you. I chose an adorable pair of flats in a pretty teal color. This exact style is no longer available, unfortunately, but they are introducing new styles all the time, so I am sure you would be able to find something that suits you. Here’s a picture of the shoes I got:
Personally, I found the orthotic footbed to be incredibly comfortable and supportive. The only drawback for me was that, due to my fairly narrow heels, I had difficulty keeping the shoes on when walking. This is not an uncommon occurrence for me, and adding a pair of heel cushions helped somewhat, although I may end up gifting these shoes to a friend with more normal width feet so that they can be enjoyed to their full potential. Despite this issue, I would definitely visit their site again for the large variety of sandals and other shoes with adjustable straps at the heel.
