VIONIC's Fyn Active Sneakers: for Life's Little Adventures #MBPBacktoSchool

 Thank you to Vionic for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.

After a fun-filled summer, our family is settling back into a normal routine and gearing up for the new school year. We still have some day trips planned on more of a local level, and I am semi-glad to have the opportunity to explore around our own county and state once again. Our summer travels have taken us to the beach, to Disney World, various locations in and around Orlando, to the NC mountains, and beyond. When we travel, we usually plan a lot of day trips or outings and stay very active. While in Orlando, we walked over 30,000 steps between two days of fun in the sun. It's amazing to have opportunities to be active with my family, but if I don't have the proper shoes on, that can quickly put a damper on the fun.

This summer, I've been able to comfortably keep up with my family, thanks to VIONIC. I am notorious for wearing improper shoes when we're on family outings. Yes, I am usually the mom wearing embellished sandals to the playground. Through the years, I have experienced my share of injuries, which have lead to joint pain in one of my knees. At 34 years old, I find myself sitting on the sidelines, instead of living life and having the amazing adventures I have always wanted to experience with my family. Sometimes, all it takes to get 'back on the playing field,' is as simple as a supportive pair of shoes.

Vionic's mission began with the work of renowned podiatrist Phillip Vasyli. A pioneer and innovator in the field of lower-limb biomechanics, Vasyli treated thousands of patients, ranging from young children to amateur and professional athletes. Known by friends and colleagues as a "born healer," he had a genuine passion for making orthotic treatment more affordable and accessible to people in need of pain relief. Today, VIONIC offers hundreds of shoes for men and women with supportive technology, so no one has to sit life out!

Meet the Fyn Active Sneaker by VIONIC

Having a supportive pair of sneakers that are comfortable to wear for various activities is a must for me. As an active mom, I never know where my day will take me. I have two kids, ages 6, and 16-months. Both kids love to play, go for walks, kick balls around, and go on adventures like taking trips to the park, zoo, amusement parks or whathaveyou. I have to be able to keep up with them. I might be carrying the little one, along with a day pack, and a purse slung over a shoulder. I might be pushing a stroller through Disney World, dragging a whining child through the mall for back to school shopping, or find myself climbing over rocks to get to a waterfall to snap a perfect photo.

We recently took a day trip driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the gorgeous NC mountains. We planned to take the parkway to Asheville, where we would stop for lunch. As we drove, we noticed a 'new to us' overlook, crowded with cars. We wanted to see what all the excitement was about, so we pulled over, and noticed several trailheads, some leading to waterfalls. One of the trails was fairly short, and lead to a waterfall nearby. We decided to go for it, and all put on our sneakers for a short hike. I had my new Fynn Active Sneakers with me, and was excited to try them out on a hike.

 Whether climbing over rocks or pushing a stroller, the Fyn Active Sneakers keep me supported, comfortable, and well-balanced.

A short trail brought us to the lower falls, where fresh mountain water had pooled. The kids were so excited to kick off their shoes and dip their toes into the cool waters. Not wanting to risk falling, I decided to keep my shoes on. I was so impressed with the way the shoes gripped the slippery rocks, the pavement, and the dirt trails. We had some climbing to do to get to the upper falls, and my knee never once felt like it was aching. I never once felt off balance, but I did hike prepared with hiking tips, like what to do if you sprain your ankle while hiking.

My Fyn Active Sneakers helped me keep my balance when climbing over wet, slippery rocks at the lower falls of Graveyard Fields.

There are a lot of reasons to love the Fyn Active Sneakers from VIONIC. They're lightweight, and comfortable to wear for an extended period of time. I put them on specifically for our impromptu hike, but wound up keeping them on for the rest of the day. My feet were so comfortable and well-supported, I didn't want to take the sneakers off. These sneakers also move with me... they don't clunk around, and they don't feel heavy on my feet. My feet can breathe in these sneakers, too! Normally, my feet get so hot in sneakers, but not in these. They're incredibly light, durable, and the extra tread allows for better traction in all situations.
