I LOVE Vionic shoes and for at least the last 10 years they have been primarily the only shoes I buy and wear because they provide excellent support and alignment for my knees and hips. Over the past few years I have had terrible problems with my sandals causing or retaining terrible foot odor. I purchased this pair of sandals just two or three months ago and I am unable to wear them already because the shoes smell awful but look brand new. I am very disappointed especially since Vionics are fairly expensive. I am now searching for a different brand that can provide the same benefits that the Vionic footbed offers without the horrible foot odor. I did purchase one pair of sandals that seem to be working out fairly well - zero foot odor - but the support is not quite as good as the Vionic.
