The pull-on, stretchy boot is a shopper-favorite, too.
As I write this, I’m sitting in a coffee shop, where another espresso-sipping patron looked up from their laptop and complimented my shoes just five minutes ago. It’s hardly the first time I’ve received praise on my Regina Pro Square-Toe Boots from Vivaia — a brand worn by Katie Holmes, Scarlett Johansson, and Selena Gomez. Decidedly stylish, the boots feature a fun silhouette with a square toe box and a funky, sloped block heel. Plus, they’re perhaps the most comfortable heeled boots I’ve ever owned.
The Vivaia Regina Pro Boot is a stretchy sock-boot-style shoe with a statement-making heel that comes in colors like lime green and crimson, plus an array of subdued solids. My pair, with a lime green heel and a contrasting gray exterior, adds a flash of zingy color to any outfit. Despite their trendy style, the boots prove incredibly practical, too.
Perhaps most notable is their water-repellant exterior. Made from recycled water bottles, it nevertheless has a knit style appearance. I’ve pounded the NYC pavement in the rain while wearing them, and they’ve remained as fresh and sleek as the day I broke them out of their box. To truly test their resistance to liquids, I accidentally poured rosé over the shoes the other day while sipping al fresco. To my delight, my vino beaded up and rolled right off the toe box with no visible staining.
Wearing these boots is akin to walking on clouds thanks to the pillowy, padded insoles and added arch support. Furthermore, their stretchiness makes pulling them on a two-second process, devoid of buckles or zippers to fiddle with.
Shoppers are equally enthralled with these shoes. One reviewer says they “fit perfectly” and are “so comfortable.” Plus, they add, the anti-slip rubber outsoles allow for cruising along slippery, wet sidewalks and walking in icy weather. Another reviewer who recently underwent foot surgery has found most boots uncomfortable post-procedure, but say Vivaia’s “support” their feet comfortably. Finally, another shopper, who is astonished by the comfort factor, “wore them for nine hours for a football game… and then walked [in] a convention center for two days in absolute comfort!” They’re “like wearing a stylish slipper,” the shopper added.
For a svelte, practical ankle boot that boasts extremely comfortable, foot-hugging wear, snag a pair of Vivaia’s Regina Pro Square-Toe Water-Repellent Boots. They’re comfortable beyond belief and sure to elicit constant compliments.
