As a one-year student at Georgetown University AND someone who needs supportive footwear whenever I’m not in running shoes, the VELOUS Hoya Adjustable Slide called out to me. I suppose it was fate that my new discomfort and Portland-based VELOUS Footwear coincided with each other at the same time.
I have never really had foot pain before in my “running life”. Perhaps it is due to the increased mileage, but I have noticed that the arch and balls of my feet have started to become increasingly more sore. This is not major or even concerning pain, just a tiredness and soreness that luckily does bother me at all when in my running shoes. Where I really notice it is when I am walking around in flat dress shoes and more so when I am barefoot.
Thr VELOUS Hoya Adjustable Slide, and really each VELOUS sandal we have tried, is a game-changer in terms of post-run recovery. As a dedicated runner, I understand the importance of recovery in maximizing performance and preventing injuries. One often overlooked aspect of recovery is the footwear we choose. So many shoes provide the necessary support, cushioning, and comfort to aid in the recovery process. But what about when we aren’t running…
This sandal excels in this aspect, offering a combination of excellent construction, fit, and comfort that promotes optimal recovery after intense running sessions. The slide features an adjustable strap system that allows for a personalized fit, ensuring that your feet feel secure and supported. The high-quality materials used in the construction of the slide are durable and provide long-lasting performance. The slide is well-crafted, with reinforced stitching and seems like it will hold up long-term (as our other VELOUS pair has).
When it comes to comfort and feel, the VELOUS Hoya Slide truly shines. The cushioned footbed provides a plush and soft sensation, which is a welcome relief for tired and achy feet. The slide offers excellent arch support, which is crucial for runners who often experience strain in their arches. Whether you’re wearing them post-run or for casual lounging, the slide offers a cloud-like comfort that will make you never want to take them off.
In conclusion, the VELOUS Hoya Slide is a fantastic addition to any runner’s recovery routine. Its superior construction, customizable fit, and exceptional comfort make it an ideal choice for promoting optimal recovery and relaxation. If you’re serious about taking care of your feet after a demanding run, I highly recommend giving these slides a try. Your feet will thank you!
