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 (while not the cutest) are a saving grace for my feet. Having developed plantar fasciitis after breaking my foot and doing tendon and ligament damage Vionic has been my go-to brand as I continue to heal.

These are chunky shoes but have great support. Vionic soles in general take some getting used to, and for the first few days I had some pain as I eased them in. Now they feel great, and I typically have painful, problem feet. Soles are strong and heavy like a shoe, but I guess that's the price for a supportive sole. Would love a boot style slipper, but I didn't see them as an option.

I love these! They are wide so your feet have room to spread out - they are very comfortable and true to fit. I also want to say that Zappos' customer service is stellar! I had a problem with my first shipment of these and I have never seen a company react and rectify a problem with such speed and care! Kudos all around for both the product and for Zappos!

I have plantar fasciitis and a bunion so these slippers were heaven! I wore them constantly for two winters until they wore out! Now I'm going to get another pair. They're not the most attractive, but neither are Birkenstocks and my feet love those too! I'm for comfort and not style these days.

This is my second pair of this slipper. I think it's the best I've ever had for support. And it's warm, though for cold winter climates, you want to use a thin sock with it, if you're wearing it for any length of time.

I got so used to wearing Vionic shoes and sandals (for support) that I felt uncomfortable when wearing just regular slippers at home. So I ordered these and they certainly helped. Now my feet are happy all the time. They are very comfortable, warm and cosy. They are somewhat clunky-looking, but I don't mind.

Overall, I am very pleased with these slippers. They are cozy, have great arch support and have nice hard soles (good for going outside to pick up the paper or the mail). My first impulse after receiving them was to send them back, but I am glad that I persevered. Because they correct for pronation your foot tends to slide sideways. It is very important to adjust the Velcro strap on top. That made all the difference for me.

This slipper has really helped my feet. I suffer from arthritis in both big toe joints. In the summer I wear my Orthaheel flip flops in the house, but during the winter I didn't have anything to wear. My hardwoods were killing my feet. The slippers are definitely a hard sole and I wouldn't say soft and cushy. That being said, it's exactly what I needed to cushion my feet.

Love the slippers, they support my Plantar Faciatis very well and are so comfortable. A little larger than I thought and than another slipper I bought but afraid that going down one size would be too small so I kept them.

Reviews Are Right: got rid of my hip pain astonishingly fast. Weary of paying $50+ for slippers but it was time to either get hip replacement ($$$) or these slippers. Adios hip pain. Wish they offered 1/2-sizes but not sure if 1/2 size bigger affects the arch? They're a bit like walking in barges but for the benefits, get out the tug boat and pull me for all I care. Worth every penny.

I love the Vionic shoes so I thought I'd try the slippers & I love them! I just wish I could find them in stores so I wouldn't have to order online. Never sure on the sizing.

I absolutely love them! I ordered one size larger than I wear in clogs and should not have. Other than that they are the most comfortable slippers that I have ever worn. They are soft and lightweight! In fact, more than once, I have walked out of the house with them on by accident thinking that I had my Vionic shoes on.

I am an over-pronator with unbearable presumed plantar fasciitis pain... Didn't think it could be my UGG slippers causing it, but it sure was! I felt so much better after switching to these... Took about a month but the pain is now gone and I can actually walk without limping in the morning! Thank you for your wonderful product.

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.

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 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.
