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.

I have bilateral plantar fasciitis most likely due to flat feet and over pronation. Both of my feet were injected two weeks ago. I bough these slippers in size 8. I wear an 8½AA, but bought the 8 based on other reviews. The length is fine, but they do run wide. I have the Velcro pulled as tight as possible. One pair of socks helps, but still wide. The arch support is very good. I will keep them for that reason.

Brands I'd also recommend: Orthoheel Tide II, and Shore

Wonderful slippers! I have a very high arch, and my podiatrist recommended this brand. Luckily I found the slippers and now am in foot heaven around the house! I also wear the sandals and cannot tell you how much better my feet and legs feel!

These have help immensely. I wear Earth shoes (with arch support) during the day, but if I go barefoot at home my feet hurt. Wearing these keep my feet from hurting.

These run a full size large. I wear an 8½ and bought an 8. They still slip off my feet unless I wear thick socks, and I have wide feet. But they are very supportive in the heel and arch. I have plantar fasciaitis and my feet feel good in them.

They won't stay on. Every time I try to walk in them, they start to slip off my feet. The arch support feels wonderful though. I'm going to try another style of this brand.

I got the slippers because I had broke my leg and since they run so wide I thought they would work but now that the swelling is down they are way to wide. And so I now have a pricey pair of slippers I can't wear. I liked the slippers but I would love it if you made some of your sandals in narrow. I used to wear a 10 m in everything and now I can't buy sandals they are too wide and won't stay on my feet.

I ordered half a size down according to the reviews, the 9 fits me exactly as 9½. So they are like half a size bigger not one full size. They are really comfortable and snugly. They are not your normal slippers, they are ortho ones made to support your feet. However I do see them as a bad fit for people suffering of platfus. I hope that they will last as long as possible. I wish that I could wear them to work.

I ordered a size down from my usual size. These slippers were still HUGE in both width and length. I could not even make them fit better using the Velcro adjustment. I will have to continue my search for slippers for my plantar fasciitis.

This is my second pair of Gemma Mule slippers, and was disappointed that they changed. The arch support and heel comfort, while good, is not as good as it used to be. I had this same experience with my newest pair of sandals. I'm sorry Vionic has changed my favorite shoe line.

I buy shoes/slippers with Orthaheel because of my plantar fasciitis. My biggest problem is the huge width of these products. I wear a B width shoe, and these products swim on my foot. I have to pull the velcro strip all the way over, and then have 'wings' that stick way out on the sides. I've even sewn them down. I wish that they would make these in a true B width!

I have perpetually cold toes, hard to fit feet, and always hated the look of slippers. These are warm, zippy looking and very comfy. I'm an 8.5, wide in front and narrow in back; the 9 is perfect, the velcro tab allows me to tighten across the instep, and there's plenty of toe room. They're also great to walk in, stable, comforting for someone with gait issues.

Ordered half size smaller than I normally wear and it fits perfect. Have used the old version by orthaheel and now the new version by vionic. The sole is different as well as the shape of the toe area is slightly different. The sole now has a weird pattern on it and doesn't grip the floor the same. Still breaking in the new version, but it feels like the arch support is slightly different too.

I've been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis for about seven months, every month another notch up in pain. I've tried foot stores and foot doctors, but I received only modest relief. I've had these slippers for 24 hours and my pain has gone from a '10' to a '1'. I have wood floors at home and I'm a hair stylist and salon owner, where the floors are cement under tile. My feet are tired after a couple of haircuts and a few foils. It's really nice to slide into these slippers after a long day. Highly recommend them, but I have to say that I feel too young to be wearing orthopedic shoes - the velcro closure is a nice touch. ;-)

After being diagnosed with sesamoiditis, I was told by the podiatrist that I needed shoes with a stiff sole, and preferably arch supports, as well as orthotics, or at least a wrap. I couldn't imagine being comfortable in this type of shoe just lounging around the house, so ordered the Gemma mule slipper, based on other reviews. With a small wrap, I've been wearing it every day since they arrived and the podiatrist says they are fine. Wonderful for wearing at home and have actually worn them outdoors. Not dainty or a fashion statement, but in black, not glaringly goofy-looking. I'm very happy with them.

Comfy and great arch support. I wish they stayed on my feet a little better. Had to return the first pair since the fleece part wasn't covering the plastic near one of the toes. Hopefully I get a better pair with the exchange.

This is my second pair of this slipper. I love the zebra print and how comfortable they are. I usually wear an 8.5 shoe and found a size 8 in this slipper to fit the best. The support is great for wearing around the house on wood floors.

Purchased these for around the house for arch support and to keep my feet warm in winter. They are definitely warm, but the arch support can be a bit much on some days, causing foot pain. On those days, I switch to ballet slippers to give my arches a rest. They also get very stinky. The cleaning instructions say to just wipe, but I had to throw them in the wash on the gentle cycle. We will see how they hold up after the washing. The Velcro straps are very effective.

These are the most comfortable slippers I've ever owned (with the exception of the open toed version of the these). I have a high arch in my foot, so these feel so good to wear. Sometimes I forget that I'm wearing and I leave the house to run errands in them. I just love them. I normally wear a size 7 shoe, but these run a little big, so I get these in a 6 and they are a perfect fit. Also, my feet are a little skinny, so I tighten the top of the slipper with the velcro flap.

Brands I'd also recommend: None. These are the only ones I wear.

Love! I have several pairs of Orthaheel flip flops and love them for my over pronation and the arch support. I'm a runner and occasionally get Plantar fasciitis pain. Around the house, I wear slippers but they had no support in them. I got these and loved them right away. PERFECT. I wear a 7.5 and ordered 7. They are wide but it's easy to adjust. I normally wear a M shoe. If you've never worn Orthaheel, it may take some getting used to. I'm a believer.

Love these slippers! They are really comfortable especially with the arch support and slight heal. They are my go to indoor shoe. I wear a 7 shoe and I bought a 7 slipper and they fit perfect. I also own an Orthaheel flip flop that I love.
