I needed a slip-on to do light yard work and watering. I wanted to be able to spray off my feet, shoes and all, if needed, without the shoe feeling slippery. These have been great for that purpose. My foot is a little wider than average and these fit well, snug but not tight. The upper gives a little, but not too stretchy. Thanks, Zappos, once again.

They were comfy but after a few days of wearing them I started to have a constant lower back pain. Stopped wearing these and the pain went away. I have really high arches and this probably wasn't an appropriate choice. Should have returned them but had thrown out the packaging.

I have been wearing Orthaheel in size 8 and was looking for something different with an arch support. I usually wear 7 1/2; WW in most shoes. I ordered these in 8W, the widest offered. They ended up being too long and too tight (not wide enough), so I sent them back. However, the foot bed looked very cushiony with a nice heel cup and a good arch support. Not as pronounced of an arch as the Orthaheel, but still supportive. The foot bed surface was softer and spongier than Orthaheel.

Love this shoe and it is my 2nd pair, but definitely not my last! I have lower back problems and since I have started wearing these, my pain has lessened and I am able to be more active. Thank you, Spenco! And thank you Zappos...your service has been outstanding! A great double find! :)

Over all a pretty comfortable shoe. Wish it had come in half sizes as the 9 was a bit generous, I could have probably used an 8 1/2 maybe or maybe even a size 8. I wish the arch was a bit more. But all in all I would certainly recommend this shoe.

These Spenco Kholo sandals have been so helpful to my plantar fasciitis. They are actually therapeutic! In addition to their comfort they are sturdy, attractive, and so easy to wear. Wish Spenco would make more shoes, not just sandals and insoles. Hint, hint!

A few months ago I developed "plantar fasciitis" in my foot. I have tried everything, but basically have been told that it takes time, sometimes up to a year for the discomfort and pain to disappear. I was looking for supportive shoes, etc., to support my feet during this difficult time. Zappos had several shoes that offered help for people with PF. I ordered these slides, and they were immediately comfortable and gave a lift to my arch and my feet. The pain lingers, but I am more comfortable when I wear these slides. Also, they are great to put on in the morning as soon as you wake up. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Brands I'd also recommend: For the reasons posted above--Dansko shoes with removable arches.

These are great slippers. I got plantar fasciitis and I needed a pair of good supportive slippers to wear around the house. They are extremely comfortable and lightweight. They only come in whole sizes so you have to order a half size up.

I had used Spenco supports in shoes prior to purchasing these sandals. I bought them because I loved the supports and I love these sandals as well. They are very comfortable and give excellent arch support. I wear them all the time and I intend to wear a pair for slippers also.

I recently discovered that I have a tendency to walk on the insides of my feet and I got these to wear around the house in the summer rather than going barefoot. They have pretty good arch support and slip on and off easily. My only complaint is that my feet can get pretty sweaty in these if I have them on for a while. Other than that, they were comfy right out of the box and didn't rub anywhere and give me blisters like new shoes sometimes can. I normally wear size 7 1/2 with socks, but since I was planning to wear these without socks, I got size 7 and they fit great. If I had some extra money to blow, I'd get them in pink and purple as well.

Not sure what this sole is made of but it is the most comfortable shoe I've have ever worn. Kind of feels like you are walking barefoot on sand but without all the little bits of debris sticking in your sole.

Good shoe. Don't like and can't wear flip/flops. Needed a Summer shoe for beach and poolside and just sliding on for quick on the go! This shoe was my answer.

I do believe that these shoes have helped with my heel pain. I wear them as houseslippers because they have arch support. They are very comfortable. I have to wear inserts in my tennis shoes which give me a great arch support so these help me get out of my tennis shoes for a bit.

Great sandals! Wonderful support and the texture and material that the sandal is made from is so soft. I normally wear somewhere between a 5.5 and a 6, and they just fit me, so go a size up if you want them to be roomier lengthwise. I also have very wide feet and they are comfortable for my wide foot. I wear them around my house all the time :).

This sandal is as light as a feather, yet has fairly good orthotic support. It is very comfortable if you like a flat-soled slide. It is very practical for summer wear.

Excellent sandal! I actually found this in my Footsmart catalog because I have been having some problems with arch pain in one of my feet. But I wanted purple so I came to Zappos. I got them super quickly too! I can wear them around town and my feet do not hurt. They stay on well when driving (many slides don't). I mostly wear them around the house as slippers though, to keep that arch from hurting and they do the trick! I put them on first thing in the morning as the foot is stiff then, and my feet quickly feel better. I may even wear them to work when I go back in August (schools). I typically order down with whole sizes (size 7 1/2) but this one said order up and I did, and that was the right choice. [I am a very fussy shoe shopper.]

I'm in love with these sandals. I am an over-pronator with bone spurs and these are perfect. More comfortable than the Orthaheel. Well worth the money. I've just purchased my third pair.

I measure an 8W, but I usually have to buy a 9 because it is so hard to find style in my true size. In Birkenstocks, European, I am a 39. I took a chance on these in an 8W. Thanks to the incredible Zappos, they arrived the next day! They are perfect! I wore them that day, for hours! They are so comfortable. It's like walking on cushions! I have a high instep, and they felt just great. The quality is excellent. This is my new, much more affordable Birk! I'll note that it was a VERY hot day, and they were a tad warm, but not to any great degree, if you'll pardon my pun! You will love them. I got the tan, but next, pink, then black!

This is a brand that I had never tried before, but did on the recommendation of a cousin, who is podiatrist, recommending them to her, and she loved them. I have had multiple foot surgeries, so I have a hard time finding shoes and sandals that look good while not hurting my feet, and that feel supportive and comfortable. These, and the flip-flops in the same brand, fit the bill. They could use a little more padding for extra comfort, but they really are great albeit basic and inexpensive. Try their flip-flops, too! I think Yuma is the model I tried, and they are also great.

This is a nice, comfortable sandal and I've gotten several compliments. It does not, however, have the support of the Orthaheel sandals but is fine for light walking.

I needed a sandal with some arch support, so I ordered these Spencos. I have a narrow foot, so these are too wide, but they still help. I would have like a little more arch support, but they are okay around the house. Wish more companies would make Narrow shoes!
