These are very comfortable and I can wear them before and after exercising and running and they help my feet from getting sore. Love the whole line of Orthaheel shoes.

The high arches are a great idea and really help relieve Plantar Fasciitis. However, calling these sandals would be like calling a motorcycle a four door car -- it is not. These are glorified flip-flops and at this price they are awfully expensive ones. Also, you cannot even take these flip-flops in the water. What is the point of having such expensive flip-flops that cannot even go in the water? The flip-flops will take a little bit to get used to and I did get used to it. However, since they are only flip-flops and not enclosed shoes, your feet will move around and therefore pronate, or roll in some. This is not good since the whole idea is to keep your feet from rolling around but the only support you will have will be the thong in the middle, this is simply not enough to keep your feet in place. In fact, I tried walking quickly in these things and every time they just fall right off. It would be nice if Orthaheel/ Dr. Vasyli, would step up to the plate and make real shoes that could offer real support so you could wear them all the time, rather than beach flip-flops that cannot even go in the water!

I tried two other Orthoheel flip-flops and this style worked best for me. They give me some relief for my Planter's Fasciitis. I have wide feet, that was my biggest concern, ordered my regular size and these were tight at first but have eased up and are very comfortble now. If only I could wear these all the time. I put them on first thing when getting out of bed so although my first steps in the morning are still painful, the PF is better with these sandals. As soon as I can afford it, I plan to purchase another pair. Do not know what I would do if something happened to these.

I have been wearing Orthaheels for a few years as recommended by my podiatrist. I purchased these for my husband and even though he thought he would never wear something that goes between his toes. He absolutely loves these! They provide great support, and are so well made!

This is my 2nd pair of Orthaheel Kinetic Flip Flops. I can't say enough good things about this flip flop. The arch support is fantastic. I can wear these all day without having my arches kill me at the end of the day. Will say that in this Orthaheel style I buy one size down...I usually wear a women's nine and I ordered this style in a women's 8. Read some reviews about the small circles on the foot bed...a non event. You can't even feel them. Most comfortable flip flop I have ever worn!

My husband never wore sandals in the summer because he had custom orthotics. Now that he's found these flip flops he no longer has to wear sneakers in the summer. Would recommend these. I also was having slight heel pain &tried these also. What a difference.

These are great for plantar fasciitis. I needed something a bit more stylish than trusty Birks and after two weeks of traveling they have hardly left my feet! I wear a half size and I sized up to next full size and they fit perfectly.

I love these, best flip-flops ever. Follow the instructions and begin to get used to them a few hours at a time. Within four days, I wore them all day including long walks. Never want another brand.

The padding makes them more comfortable that the Tides, and keeps them from rubbing various spots on your foot.

These sandals a a great find. They are light and they support very well. The width is wider than your average flip-flop so they worked well for me. That said I don't always have to buy a wide in a shoe. I am kind of in between a normal and a wide. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and am considering other Orthaheel sandals as a result.

I got these because I have plantar fascia. They feel great but they are not a magic cure. They feel more supportive than any other sandal I have.

Great flip flops, but they would be so much better if the insoles didn't have "bumps" on them. I have extremely sensitive feet due to medical issues, and the bumps really irritate the bottoms of my feet. On the positive side, they have awesome arch support!

I love these flip flops. I love flip flops, but I needed a pair that is good for my feet. When I first got them, they did feel different, but now I am spoiled, I can't wear anything without arch support. I just ordered another pair to wear out. I can't say enough about them.

I'm loving my Orthaheel flip flops. I've been wearing them daily for about a month. Usually, when I wear flip flops my flat-ish feet are sore and my lower back is uncomfortable. These flops are the answer. Definitely worth it if you are active and looking for a sturdy product for sore feet.

These sandals are, without doubt, the best flip-flops I've ever owned/worn. I used to wear the Teva Mush flip, which was super-cushioned and wonderfully comfortable for my foot, and perfect for flip-flop use around pool or beach. But, like most flips, the Teva Mush didn't provide sufficient support for my feet. I've developed Plantar Fasciitis as I've gotten older, and since I've found Orthaheel I've used several of their products with outstanding results. While I wouldn't walk for long distances in these (due to loose-fitting nature), for after sports or lounging around the home or pool or beach, these give my long, narrow, med-high arch feet superior comfort and support. Unlike the vast majority of flip-flops, these have actual, strong arch support. Which may be too much for some people, YMMV. The heel cup helps keep my heel in place. I typically wear Men's 11 (B or even A in dress shoes) or 44, but in these the 11 was too roomy, so I went with a 10. For comparison, I wear Men's 11 in Chaco sandals and shoes, but usually have excess strap to tuck in.

They look exactly as pictured - I wish they were cuter but that's not a complaint. The person who said the raised dot footbed was uncomfortable must be really fussy because I have pretty sensitive feet and I hardly notice the dots. The arches are just right. This flip flop is well made and exactly what it professes to be. Maybe start to think about some fun Reef-like tops and I'll buy another pair.

These sandals are great! Made for people with plantar fasciitis. I never could wear sandals before without my feet hurting. I wear these sandals every minute of the day at home. They are the only shoes I can wear without my $700 pair of orthotics in. I will be ordering more in the future.

This is my second pair of orthaheel sandals - I love them! I tend to live in flips at the first hint of warmer weather. I have flat arches and started to get arch pain after wearing other less supportive flips. They may take a short time to get used to, but once you do you'll notice the difference and you won't go back! These are a nice, casual style and the black goes with everything. I also like that since this style is unisex (and for a female I have long, wide feet!), they are a great fit! Highly recommend!

I was told about Orthaheel by a friend of mine. Now within 2 weeks these are my favorite Flip flops and have ordered the full sandal model. I was a huge Chaco fan. But no longer. There is a small break in time but it is worth it for the back and overall comfort. A+.

Though they were a little hard to get used to at first, they seem to position your body differently. But after a couple weeks, I really like these shoes. would recommend them for sure.
