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.

These slippers aren't quite as supportive as the superb Vionic flip-flops I bought for warm weather, but they still feel good under my arch, and they're cozy and warm. Very roomy, not fashionable, but perfect for schlumping around the house.

These slippers are very comfortable and seem to help my plantar fasciitis. They run big. I usually wear a 7½ and I ordered a size 7 which fits perfectly.

I have many pairs of the flip flops and glad to have them as a slipper. I am a 8.5. The 8 was a little too small on one foot (my left big toe hit the end). The 9 is a little too big but since they are slippers, its ok. Wish they had half sizes.

Super comfortable, warm slippers with lots of arch support. I usually wear a wide shoe. These were wide enough for me.

Love them! They fit me perfectly. So, if your feet aren't wide, they may be too wide. I normally wear a 9 EE and am wearing a 9 M in these.

The main reason I purchased and kept the Gemma Mule Slipper is because I have a severe pronation problem that over the years led to torn tendons. I had to throw away all my cheap slippers because they did not provide the necessary arch support, which this slipper does. This slipper, however, is a bit too wide, even when you tuck in the velcro strap all the way. But I decided to keep them anyway because it does have superior arch support. Also, I usually wear a size 11 in an athletic shoe, but size 10 in this slipper was plenty long enough. As far as comfort is concerned, it could be a bit softer with more padding, but for now I'll put up with some of these minor shortcomings that are outweighed by the strong arch support.

I was pretty pumped about getting these slippers, have had them almost two weeks now and they are everything that I had hoped for! They are comfortable, warm and very supportive. I spend a lot of my time at home on my feet in the kitchen so I love the arch which keeps my legs and lower back from aching. I normally prefer wide shoes but these run generous so that was not necessary and these are half a size smaller than my normal size but they fit great! I may need to order another pair in the open toe style for warmer weather!

When I ordered these I had read the reviews & knew from trying another model of their slippers, that they would fit a little loose. They do, but they fit my arch which is the most important to me. Love these for the support, not because they're soft or cozy.

I love these slippers! First they take away my plantar fasciitis pain! Also they are very good quality, soft and supportive. I first ordered a size up because I wear a half size but they were too big so I ordered a half size down and they fit perfect. I highly recommend for foot pain.

I got these for my sister who wears shoes in the house. They have excellent arch support and she loves them. I have a pair myself. The width is adjustable by way of a velcro strap.

I do not write reviews, but I feel these are worth it. I received my package, Christmas Eve. My feet hurt so bad I had to open the box and wear them. My shoe size is a 9 - they might be a tab too big, however, they feel great. Even better they make my feet feel great. The arch support is somewhat hard, as others have noted, however, I need that, and it is comfortable. We all have different feet. Today is 12/31, and I have been wearing them since the 24th [everyday] they smell like feet and normally my feet do not stink.

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.
