Let me tell you about the fit. They run wide, not long. Unlike my feet. On previous reviewer's recommendation, I ordered a size 6, in black, instead of my usual 7. Too short. Today its replacement, (black not available) size 7 Berry Zebra, arrived. It is very wide but a true size 7 in length. Now let's talk color. Berry is not the pinkish red shown in the photo, but mauve. Smoky pale magenta. The fabric is not as fleecy as the black, and probably the tan, but some slightly napped inexpensive synthetic covering. I don't care one bit! Now to function. My back hurts less. My shoulders even hurt less. My hips and, most notably, sacroiliac, hurt less when I walk. I don't mind that I look like a stick figure with upholstered duck feet. If anyone complains, I will redirect them to my strikingly improved mood. Now to plans. When wonderful Zappos and I figure out which of the Orthaheel sandals I have on order will fit, all other usable sandals (e.g., Birks, Naots) will be donated to the homeless shelter. I look forward to actually being able to take walks again. Deo gratias.

Arch support in this slipper is so hard it pushes your foot off to the side when you walk. I can't wear them.

They were not white and black- more like greenish grey and black. Otherwise, good arch support and comfortable. I have a pair of Vionic slippers that I wear daily, and was looking to replace. I love the arch support. Very comfortable.

Very happy with this purchase. I have always worn FlyFlot slippers but they are no longer available. Because I have such a high instep I needed a slipper with good arch support, and this item delivered just what I was looking for!

So sad that they have ruined this shoe! It is not at all like the previous version they made in this house shoe, which fit perfectly. To get the new one to fit you must adjust the tab and when you do it applies so much pressure to the outside edge of your foot that it hurts more than just wearing cheap house shoes. I hope they read this and redesign next year!

Nice slipper. Runs large. I ordered a full size smaller Thani usually wear. The Velcro helps as it also runs a bit wide.

After being fitted for orthotics, and after telling my doctor that I live in flip-flops and slippers when not at work, he recommended that I look into the Vionic products. I have a thing about not having anything on the back of my feet - and I really like the style of these slippers. They look almost identical to the cheap, flat slippers that I have always worn. Definitely order a size smaller then usual. They are also extra wide. The fit is comfortable but they are very heavy - almost to the point of being obnoxious. The soft cushy feel when they were brand new has worn down in just a few weeks. The arch support is good - not great - but I am glad that I got them for my first pair of arch support footwear. The Vionic Tide II flip-flops are incredible.

I bought these slippers because I have plantar fasciitis and most slippers are too flat. These are comfortable and my feet do not hurt after wearing them. They are clunky looking and run a bit large. I bought a size 7 (I usually wear 7½ in shoes) but they still seem big. I did not want to go down another size because I was afraid that they would be too small. But overall I am satisfied since my main concern was relieving foot pain.

The slippers provide the arch support I need for my bad feet. They are not quite as cushy as I'd like but maybe you can't have support and cushion in the same slipper. I love the no charge return policy and will definitely now buy shoes online from Zappos.

These provide amazing support! Having plantar fasciitis, I need something on my feet all of the time and these do the trick when I am at home! Warm, cozy, stylish and supportive. What more can anyone ask for?

These slippers were a bit of a disappointment for me. I usually wear a Women's size 8 and they were definitely too large. I gave them to my father, who wears a Men's size 8 and they are perfect for him. He has been suffering from plantar fasciitis and he felt a great deal of relief from the pain while wearing the slippers. They are not especially comfortable, expect the bottoms to be very hard but supportive. Also, the slipper fabric picks up every piece of lint and dog hair and they looked old within an hour of wearing them. I could see that the Velcro would wear out quickly. If these slippers will help prevent plantar fasciitis, the other drawbacks will be worth it. I would definitely buy at least a half of a size down.

I love the footbed support! Just can't seem to find a size to fit. The inside is slippery and hard to keep on my feet - maybe terry cloth would be better.

The arch support is great! The sizing was off to me. I wear a 6-1/2 in SAS shoes so I ordered the 7 in these and they pushed on my toes. Returning these and ordered a size 8, not sure if they will fit right but I'm gonna give it a try. I think 7-1/2 would be perfect...but they don't come in 1/2 sizes.

These fit like the other Vionics that I have bought. They are extremely supportive, and may take time to get use to. I like them, and will continue to buy the Vionic brand.

I wear size 7 running shoes, and I wanted to be able to wear socks sometimes with these (Tacky, I know!), so I ordered size 7. Definitely need size 6, but mainly because they are so wide. If you have narrow feet, choose another slipper.

These slippers are great. I also have the summer version and they are so comfortable especially on hard floors or ceramic tile. They have Velcro adjustment straps that never slip. The arch support helps with back and foot issues, and I would definitely recommend Vionic products for comfort shoes.

I needed help recovering from a broken foot, and time in a boot. These slippers are working to fix my feet, especially on my tile kitchen floor. They are not cushy, that's the point, but they have the structure you are supposed to have to fix heel pain. The colors are cute; a little more subdued than it appears in the picture. Glad I got these even if I sound a little clompy in them - its worth it!

I have plantar fasciitis that can be bothersome in less supportive shoes. In the cooler weather my usual Vionic flip flops aren't warm enough, and it only took awhile in low heeled slippers for me to realize I needed a supportive slippers. While not the most attractive slippers I have ever owned, they are very comfortable, with a nice sole that works outside. I was worried about the black staining skin and socks, but this did not happen. They have a nice arch and are warm and snug, as the Velcro (not a fashion statement!) allows them to be as snug as you need. A very nice slipper, sturdy and supportive as well as nice and warm.

I just sent away for my second pair of the Gemma Mule Slipper. The lining wore away on my first pair and my foot was sliding around. I have wide feet and I still needed to adjust the velcro to try to make them a little narrower. They are a bit clunky, but I have been advised not to walk barefoot due to plantar fasciitis. I like the warmth and the support. (I wish they would make more shoes in wide widths)!

Just got them last night. What a relief! I usually wear a wide shoe, but I was still able to wear these with no problem. I started wearing Vionic sandals 2 years ago. They have helped to relieve my knee and back pain. However, at night and in the morning I was walking around in my flat slippers with no support and I was miserable. Like all Vionics it takes a minute to get used to them. The footbed is firmer than my sandals.

Fit was right on with my other 2 Vionic sandals. The strap is adjustable so that solves the comments that it is too wide. I am only giving it 4 stars for how heavy they are. Therefore a bit loud when walking around in them. I wish they could make it lighter weight. But, it is good to get out of bed into something warmer. I am not sure how to clean them if they get dirty.

LOVE the support. However, this is the second pair of Orthaheel slippers that the lining comes loose from the inside. I just ordered an exchange for the open toed Relax slipper so we will see if they hold up.

Had for about 3 weeks now. Soft and comfortable inside. Arch was a bit higher than my custom orthopedics for My sneakers, so it took a few days to adjust to them. The arches are higher than the Vionic sandals I bought, but i think they have formed to my feet more from when they arrived. They are nicely snug on my mildly wide feet, so no slipping and sliding. Enclosed toes can get a bit warm after long wear times. But I'm loving them still.

These were great from the moment I put them on. I'd wear them everywhere if I could. They have really helped my Plantar Fasciatis! They are so supportive. The fabric is a little scratchy and I normally wear a 9 1/2 but ordered a 9 and they are just right. I would definitely order these again.
