Recently I was sent a pair of Vionic Venture Walking Shoes to help promote their February Walkabout! The shoes are made with Orthaheel Technology, a biomechanics orthotic footbed that naturally aligns your feet and can help relieve heel pain, back pain, knee pain…any pain caused by alignment issues!

These are totally NEEDED in my life. I'm on my feet all day for 9 hours. And when I work a sporting event, that day turns into a 12 hour day! I'm always complaining about foot pain, heel pain and eventually, back pain. The Black Venture shoe that I was sent looks great with my black work pants! I'm excited for to keep breaking them in :)

Anyway, back to the Walkabout! Vionic's annual Walkabout challenge started February 1st, 2015 (National Heart Health Month). The Walkabout encourages people to live a healthy lifestyle by walking everyday for 30 days (for as little as 30 minutes). The initiative is co-promoted by Vionic spokespeople Dr. Andrew Weil and celebrity trainer Juliet Kaska. 

This year, Vionic is partnering with SparkPeople, an online platform that helps users to reach their goals and lead healthier lives through free nutrition and fitness tools, expert created content and a vibrant, supportive community. SparkPeople has about 15.5 million lifetime members, many of whom lost weight and achieved better fitness through walking. Sparkpeople will host the Vionic Walkabout challenge through the month of April, at which point, users will be given the option to extend their SparkPeople memberships and continue on the journey to realizing their health and fitness goals.

As a participant you receive daily emails with motivation and healthy living info including recipes and wisdom from Dr. Weil and fitness moves from celebrity trainer Juliet Kaska. Also a a 3-month free subscription to Dr. Weil's Spontaneous Happiness and Vionic's Guide to Getting Active: Tips from the Experts!! 

There is also a walk to win aspect - daily prizes include shoes, cookbooks and more and the grand price is a trip to Napa Valley! The grand prize is based on social media participation. 

*I was provided these shoes for free; however, the thoughts expressed here are all my own!
