It makes a difference! You can feel the support right away. I was skeptical at first but when my foot doctor recommended them, I took the leap and I am glad I did!

I love these slippers! I ordered a pair for my sister-in-law and me. They are a must when we get home and take our work shoes off. I have a lot of arch and heel pain and these are about the only slippers to give me relief. I ordered a half size smaller like all Orthaheel products and they fit perfectly. The first day I thought they felt heavy for a slipper and that I may trip, but by the next day they were perfect. They are warm and soft and sturdy. I like the adjustable Velcro strap. You will not be disappointed.

This slipper is very, very comfortable. The foot bed is a dream. However, the fabric is not breathable, so makes my feet a little too warm. Now that the weather is cooling off, that may no longer be a problem. I wear a size 9. This slipper fits true to size in the length, but it is very wide. The tabs stick out on the sides because I have the adjustable velcro closures at their tightest. If I made them any tighter, as another reviewer said, they would drag on the floor. Although I wear an 8 in Orthaheel's Relax slipper, the 8 was too short in the Gemma slipper. These slippers do not make your feet look small! They are so comfortable that I can live with that.

I never thought I'd spend more than $25 on a pair of slippers, but these are worth every dollar. I only wish I could find shoes as comfortable. The cushioning and arch support is great and has helped with all my aches and pains - especially hip pain. Great investment for foot health.

I had my doubts about these, for about fifteen seconds. As soon as I tightened up the velcro adjustment on the outside of the slipper, the sizing felt fine. Love the arch support and decided to just keep them on the rest of the evening. If you don't have foot problems, the arch support may be too much, but if you do have foot problems or just want more padding between you and hard floors, this is a great slipper. I like the harder sole because I've been known to step down to the mailbox or move the trash cans in slippers. I'm getting the zebra next.

Great slippers! They have eliminated my foot pain. Most of the house is hard wood floors and these slippers are wonderful for walking and standing on the hard floor all day long. Can't wait to put them on in the morning. And they keep my feet nice and warm.

My feet ache in the morning when I first get up, but as soon as I slip on these slippers, they say "ahhh" and get really happy. The arch support and the cushy fleece and cushioning beneath combine to make the most comfortable slippers ever. I wear 9.5, so first ordered a 9 which was a tad too short for me, returned them (thanks for free shipping, Zappos, you rock) and got a 10 which is perfect. I love them.

Very comfortable! I followed the recommended break-in process and these slippers are a great find for me, as I have narrow feet, and the velcro closure made this work extremely well!

Brands I'd also recommend: I would like to try one of their shoes that would fit narrow foot.

When I got them, my 15 year old daughter said "nice grandma slippers" and laughed at her own whit! She later tried them on and was amazed at how comfortable they were. I now have to keep going into her room to get them! These are great. I cannot walk barefoot around my house due to my planter faciatitis...t These certainly do the trick. Comfort without pain trumps any fashion statement when I am in my own home.

This is my second pair of Orthaheel slippers. I have difficulty with my feet and they seem to like it best to be in slippers or shoes. These always feel good from the moment my feet hit them.

Pros: Orthaheel's "Gemma Mule Slipper" has great arch support for a slipper, which is very hard to find. At first, I wasn't sure I was going to like them because I wasn't used to the feeling of such a supportive footbed. But after a few wearings, it seemed to mold itself to the shape of my foot, and I fell in love with them. Now they feel like they were custom-made for me. Also, I also like the fact that it has an open back and a little opening on the side, so it breathes, but the upper part (the vamp) is deep enough that it helps keep the slipper on your foot without sliding around too much. Soft velour outer and very soft (maybe too soft*) terrycloth footbed. I like the fact that it comes in black, so my size-11 feet look smaller. And that's another thing. It's great that they come in a size 11. (Thank you, Orthaheel, for that, and please make ALL your shoes in size 11!) Very comfortable, so I kick off my shoes and put these on the minute I get home. CONS: After wearing them daily for 18 months, I had to buy a second pair because the bottom cloth on the footbed wore out in the toe area. *So I do wish that Orthaheel would use a more durable fabric on the footbed because they are a little pricey for a slipper (but worth it), and I don't want to have to keep replacing them, especially since they sometimes run out of black in size 11, and the other color options are a bit too loud for me. (In fact, I would also suggest that Orthaheel should offer ALL their shoes in black. I would buy many more, but sometimes they are too colorful and don't go with everything.) Otherwise, these are my favorite slippers of all time. Highly recommended. I hope Orthaheel never stops making them, and please keep making them in a size 11!

This was my first Orthaheel purchase, and I am very pleased. I have problems with plantar fasciitis, and these slippers provide great support. They could be a little more stylish, but I'm willing to overlook that for the comfort. Would definitely suggest this for others with similar arch and heel pain. I normally wear size 8 1/2 and purchased size 9 which fit great.

I have plantar fasciitis and it can be very painful to walk, particularly first thing in the morning. These slippers are wonderful and greatly help to reduce the pain. I've had my pair for about 2 months and they are holding up well as I wear them before leaving for work and first thing when I get home. I've washed them in the washing machine with good results. I will never be able to wear department store slippers again. I only wish they had more stylish colors rather than the plain black and unbecoming prints.

Fantastic slippers, especially good if you have plantar fasciitis and the first few steps out of bed are painful - the slippers will support you and make walking so much easier! They will be nice and warm in the winter, too. The adjustable velcro strap is great if you want to wear them with thicker socks or barefoot.

These are fantastic -- I use them as my "indoor" shoes/slippers daily and never think about my feet! Very well made/constructed and easily spot-cleanable. I used others' reviews to choose a size for myself (USA 9-1/2 medium), so I ordered half size down.

This is the only pair of slippers that I would slip into when I am home. I have bad plantar fasciitis and this is the only thing I can wear to relieve pain walking around the house. You might need a day or so to get use to the high arch but I can tell the difference when I have these on and when I do not from the relief I get when my heels are throbbing. These are my first Orthoheels and I will be trying out a couple pairs of Orthoheel sandals to wear out and about.

I found the slippers waiting on my front porch when I came home for lunch, this afternoon. After trying them on, it was very difficult to convince myself that I needed to put my shoes back on to return to work and finish out my day. These slippers are probably the most comfortable pair of footwear I have ever had on my feet. In addition to that, they are well constructed and pretty darn cute. For the skeptics out there, let me tell you this... I'm recovering from foot surgery and even my Birkenstocks are hurting, right now. Tennies are nearly an impossibility. I also have plantar fasciitis. When I put these slippers on, all the pain diminishes almost instantaneously. Now, if only I could get away with wearing them everywhere I go, I'd be a happy camper.

I ordered my Gemma slippers in the color shown. My husband said they looked like Ladybugs, so they have been dubbed my ladybug slippers! I thought that they were a bit pricey, but I have terrible pronation, figure that if these worked, it was worth the price! Well, they do work, there was a short adjustment period, but I love them, and will probably get another pair. Wish they had more of a selection, in slippers and regular type shoes (not sandals)!
