Ever since I found VIVAIA earlier this year, I’ve been a fan! My collection is quickly growing and I find myself reaching for my VIVAIA shoes often for many occasions. My latest find is the VIVAIA Aria 5, an upgraded version of it’s predecessor. Since it’s launch in early March, I’ve had a bit of time to try them out in effort to share the more honest VIVAIA Aria 5 review. Read on for more!

VIVAIA Aria 5 Review
Most of my wardrobe is very maximalist and consists of a lot of prints, colors, embellishments, and textured fabrics. Therefore, I’m always on the look out for a good simple neutral shoe. The VIVAIA Aria 5 fit my criteria perfectly! The cream is a really nice light neutral that pairs well with literally anything and everything! These flats look great with everything from dresses and skirts to jeans and trousers.
The pointed toe shape is very chic and with the upgrade, it’s VERY comfortable and roomy. I have the previous Aria flat and while I love it, the Aria 5 has much more stretch and room in the toe box. This is good news for those with wider feet, although I do feel that this would fit a variety of foot widths. To be honest, I’ve only had fit issues with only pair of their shoes!
The comfort is out of this world amazing! The shoe molds to your feet and feels like you’re walking on a cloud. I have worn these SO much since I got them and not only are they perfect for everyday but they are great for travel too! They bend so you can easily fit them in your bag for on-the-go (perfect if you’re wearing heels and need a more comfortable option later on). I recently took them on a trip where I did a lot of walking and I had no issues! I was comfortable the whole time and did not end up with any blisters or sore feet.
As for as washing, I haven’t got them dirty enough to wash yet so no experience with that – I will update!
I also recently got some bow clips to pair with them! I saw these on the VIVAIA website and couldn’t pass them up. They come in black and cream so of course, I got both. In these images, I’m wearing the black. They don’t fall off and can be styled so many different ways! They also look super cute with all of my VIVAIA shoes including tall boots, ankle boots, heels and flats.
