Name of Product: Vionic’s Ailie fitness shoe
Benefits for Spring: Vionic’s Ailie is great for the transition from boots to flip-flops and it features breathable mesh uppers with innovative podiatrist-designed Orthaheel Technology which is shown to reduce over-pronation – making it a perfect warm weather walking shoe!

This one-touch, any-angle spray is designed for those hard to reach places without getting your hands and rings greasy. It’s vegan-friendly, not tested on animals and no artificial fragrances.
