Welcome relief from beginning plantar fasciitis. I wear them constantly in the house. Before I bought these slippers I always went barefoot in the house as is the custom here in Hawai'i. The instructions were not to wash them in the washer, but I could not get them clean using surface cleaners. I put them in the washer with our biking gear, i.e. cold water, Free and Clear detergent, no fabric softener, lay flat to dry, and they came out fine, but I've only done it once.

I really like Orthaheel, but these need some improvement. I found them to be very wide, a size long and too clunky for a slipper. Would love it if they made those changes!

If you are looking for a slipper with similar firm support that the Tide sandal or the Melissa mule provide, this is it! Soft like a slipper...firm arch support. Your feel stay cool with the open toe design and they are adjustable. Love them!

These are the best slippers I have ever had! I've suffered with plantar fasciitis for the past 2 years. The Orthaheel sandals and sneakers have been very comfortable so I decided to try the slippers. They are true to size, very good arch support, deep heel bed and are soft and warm. I have been wearing them for about 5 weeks daily and love them!

I read the other reviews and they were correct about these slippers running big. I wish there was more Velcro since I have narrow feet. Otherwise, these are quite comfortable and supportive.

Love them. At first I thought my foot was going to slide forward, but as I continued to wear them, they were just fine,very comfortable. I just wish you had a similar one with a thong.

I had a hard time giving up my sheepskin Uggs, but have developed plantar fasciitis and need slippers that ergonomically fit my feet and have great arch support due to my high arches. Love, love, love these slippers. Got the pink cheetah print. It took a couple days for my feet to get used to the correct ergonomics and arch support, but I live in these things when at home. The material is very soft and can be tightened or loosened to your liking with the Velcro straps. The feet are doing much better with the support and cushioning.

I have a tear in my Achilles tendon and was told by my orthopedic doctor that I need to wear shoes and slippers with at least a 1" heel. These slippers are most comfortable, and since you can adjust the closure with Velcro, they are a tremendous help, since my foot is always swollen. They have helped alleviate the pain I was having in my foot at the end of the day. I would recommend them. Even if you have no foot problems. Comfort and style, what more can you ask for?

This is another Orthaheel success story! I ordered them yesterday. Came home from a 12 hour shift, my feet screaming for comfort and voila! There appeared my Orthaheel slippers. I own 7 pairs of the sandals and was using them as slippers. I wanted something a bit more cushy, suitable for my "nesting" moments. These are the most delicious slippers I have ever owned. If they were able, my feet would applaud! They are true to size. Width is adjustable. Orthaheel you've done it again...please get back to the drawing board and create more styles...boots, mary Janes and Gladiators. AAAAAAAh says it all!

I've had these about two weeks so I can't yet speak to their longevity. I can speak to the time it takes to get used to them. Like any new "orthotic" - as the foot bed of this slipper mimics - it takes time for the body to adjust to the change at the foundation (under your feet). The first day I could only wear them for a short while. Each day for about a week I was able to increase that time. But I will say it was a full week before my back adjusted to the (positive) change in support to my feet and so my lower back ached for that full week. So give yourself time to adjust... anytime you change something "foundationally" that adjustment time is necessary. Now, after two weeks, I'm loving the support. I work from home so I wear these more often than I wear most shoes.

Thank you! A slipper for those of us who suffer from plantar fasciitis! I was bummed about the prospect of spending a summer in tennis shoes indoors, but these are perfect! If you need the "stiff" support and great arch that these were designed to provide, you'll be glad you spent the money for comfort.

These are awesome slippers if you have plantar fasciitis. I would dread getting out of bed in the morning because my heels would hurt so badly. I could put these on after stretching and have very little pain. They are also great for standing on tile floors for long periods of time. They are not the prettiest shoes, but they are definitely comfortable.

These slippers have a built in arch support! These are wonderful. I have very flat feet and these provide the support I need. Do not expect them to be super flexible, if they were they would not be so supportive. They are great for overpronators like me! Also the top has Velcro so I could adjust it and make them a little more snug.

I love this slipper! At first I balked at spending so much for slippers, but I have recently had a lot of pain in my heels and decided I couldn't walk around the house barefoot anymore. The slippers, plus better arch supporting daytime shoes, have made a world of difference! I usually wear a size 10, but I took the advice of others who wrote reviews and got a size 9, which I'm happy with. I would highly recommend these slippers, especially if you have foot problems, such as plantar fasciitis.

I rec'd these slippers as a Christmas gift at the suggestion of my podiatrist. If you have high arches and suffer from plantar facitis, these will help! There was a week or two adjustment period but since then, I live in these!

Bought these for my 13 year old son who has Severs disease (severe heel pain) and is not supposed to walk without support. He hates wearing his athletic shoes (which have orthotics in them) around the house, so I measured his foot, compared it to the chart, and purchased these. He loves them! He says they are very comfortable and cozy. And, the built in orthotic has totally helped with relieving his heel pain. The perfect slipper!

I have recently developed plantar fasciitus in one of my feet. I needed something to wear in the house on our hardwood/tile floors. These slippers are amazing. They have alleviated much of my heel pain. (and I am seeing a doctor for the condition) I never knew arch support was so important. I bought Orthaheel sandals late in the summer and they are great too. I plan to buy more Orthaheel shoes and take care of my feet, legs and back. Make more styles please. Zappos has great delivery times!

These are the most comfortable slippers I have ever had. They provide excellent support, but are soft at the same time. I lke the adjustable flap so I can wear them with or without socks without ruining the shape. The non-slip sole is great for slippery floors like carpet and tile. I will definitely get another pair. And Zappos' quick delivery and free returns makes buying at Zappos a pleasure.

These were for my 96-year-old mother. She likes them very much as they fit over her bunion and twisted toes. As she lives in another town, it was very convenient for me to order this and a different brand for her to try, then return the other one.

These slippers run large and they are probably for people with a very high arch. Very well-made but they were not very comfortable for me because I don't have a very high arch and they were not uncomfortable for me.
