Vionic Tropic Hayden Review
“Less is more”—it’s a cliche saying, but it’s true. When it comes to fashion, some people like to go for the bold, the shiny, and the bedazzled. But the truth is, sometimes a minimalist style is better. It’s more versatile, more suitable for different occasions, and has a more refreshing look. As the weather warms up, why not choose the Tropic Hayden sandal by Vionic as your footwear for the upcoming summer? This pair captures the elegance in simplicity. What’s more, it is comfortable, supportive, and provides stability. Though it has its flaws, it’s still got plenty of great aspects. Without further ado, here are some of their features explained in more detail.
- Simple and refreshing
- Slip-on design
- Hugs arches and heels
- 1.5 inch platform
- Grippy outsole pattern
- Not adjustable
- Casual wear only
Ease of Use
In terms of breaking in your footwear, Vionic recommends that you wear their shoes for just a few hours a day for the first few days. This allows your foot to adjust to the feeling of the shoe, as well as for the shoe to adjust to your foot. By one to two weeks, you should be good to go.
We recommend you wear this pair for casual occasions. They would look great for things like days at the beach and informal parties. Though semi-formal dress codes accept peep-toe shoe styles for women, this model shoes more than just a “peep,” so we would not recommend them.
Their main flaws are their lack of versatility and expensive price. Their open-toe design makes them too casual for formal and even semi-formal wear, so they should only be worn on casual occasions. They are also overpriced if you buy them at their original cost.
We recommend this pair for casual summer wear if you’ve got enough in your budget for them. They would look great paired with maxi skirts or with denim shorts, and their breathable design makes them ideal for hot sunny days.
