I absolutely love these slippers. They are so comfortable and keep my feet warm. I have been battling plantar fasciitis for a couple of months and found myself wearing tenns shoes and Merrells all the tome, even around the house. Now, I put these shoes on the minute I come in the house. Thanks, Orthaheel!

Great support and very comfortable. My shoe size is between a 6 1/2 and 7, depending on the style. I ordered slippers in a size 6/37 and they fit well. I think the key is the European sizing. 37 fits the same way as other brands that use this sizing only.

I have bone spurs and plantar fasciitis. Most of the year I live in a brand of shoe not carried at Zappos- and am very relieved to find a slipper for colder months that are so comfortable and fit so well! I ordered a second pair.

Brands I'd also recommend: Abeo - if zappos would carry them

Ordered these from my mom and she got them the next day! She loves them and says they are so comfortable and easy to slip on and off. (Important for an 89 yr old) I live out in the boonies and Zappos is SO GREAT! Just ship gifts direct to family--save so much hassle!

Without a doubt the best slippers I have ever owned. Not only do they keep my feet toasty warm but also are extremely comfortable. I have already bought a second pair.

Ditto all the other reviewers: amazingly supportive and cushiony. I was afraid the little triangle "air vent" would cause cold air to leak in and let my feet get cold, but this cradles the foot so closely, my feet stay warm. And the velcro adjustment is nice to customize the fit (I have very high arches, so these wouldn't have worked without it). Also have a wide foot: these may not fit a narrow foot well.

I have a heel spur and very high arches so I can't walk around my house with no shoes on. These slippers are the first things I put on in the morning and again when I come home from work. I need the firm support some people complained about -- I wear orthotics in my shoes that are shaped much like these. If they weren't so pricey, I would get a couple more pairs in different colors. This is a lot to pay for slippers.

I bought these slippers pre-knee surgery hoping they would provide the support and comfort I love in my Orthaheel sandals. I was not disappointed. Warm, comfortable, excellent arch support and sturdy enough to wear outside. I usually wear a wide width but these fit great in the standard width. The best slippers I've ever owned.

I love the color (Pink/grey),comfort, and fit. I did not need to add my orthotics to improve the comfort. The break-in time was minimal--two hours for two days. I wore them performing household chores and did not feel any soreness but felt more energized. I shall be purchasing another pair very shortly. Great product. I am thinking about trying out your other shoes for my retail job (requires a lot of standing!!)

Purchased for my wife with severe plantar fasciitis. She noted immediate relief. It did take awhile for her to get used to a real arch in the slipper...LOVES them!

I have terrible plantar fasciitis so going barefoot in the house is not an option. I wanted a slipper that had arch good arch support which this one does. I definitely will purchase another one and buy the tennis shoes from Orthaheel. Zappos is great. They had the best price and quick delivery.

Very happy with these slippers. I have plantar fasciitis and was told I can no longer go barefoot at home and need to wear a slipper with arch support. My podiatrist specifically recommended this brand to me. The material is very soft and comfy. The arch support is definitely firm but comfortable. The slipper is slightly wide, but not so much that it is a problem for me. My feet are medium width. The band around the top of the foot did require some breaking in. It felt very stiff for a couple of wearings. It does say this in the instructions and it is true. Now that they're broken in they feel great!

These are great slippers! I have very thin feet and I bought these slippers one size smaller. I adjusted the Velcro straps as much as possible and I have comfortable slippers that support my feet. I wish there was a little more adjustability on the straps but I also have very thin feet. I took them on vacation. They were well worth the space.

I bought these to wear around the house after having a heel pain issue while jogging. They are very supportive and comfortable. I wear them all the time now when at home. I still have heel and knee pain, but these help quite a bit. I usually wear size 9 but I bought a size 8, and they fit well.

I bought 2 pair of these slippers, one for me and one for my mom. Each of us have had plantar fascitis. These are very supportive to wear for long periods and fit true to size. They can be adjusted for width as well.The arch support is very firm and takes just a bit to get used to, and feels better with socks sometimes. I would buy another pair and so would my mom. Cute design, too.

Brands I'd also recommend: this is best for slippers. I like ecco shoes

These are cute slippers, first time ever ordering an animal print! They have the same good arch support as the Relax slippers which is all I wear in the house. These do keep your feet warmer in the winter even without socks. I always have to order a full size smaller in Relax slippers so I did the same with the Gemma, which is why I rated them "felt a full size larger" to help others. There is still space in them to wear a sock with the velcro strap loosened a little when it's really cold. I still like the Relax style better because I like open toes but these are doing exactly what I wanted them to do, providing proper support and keeping my feet warmer.

Brands I'd also recommend: To date I have found nothing else with Orthaheel support in slippers.

These are very ugly slippers..But after all, they are just for in my home.. That said, these are very very comfortable and supportive. I highly recommend them if you need a slipper with great support. My feet are totally flat and i was starting to have some feet pain. They do stretch a little.

I just received these slippers today. I put them on and have not taken them off. They are so comfortable and have great support. I wear a size 8 1/2 N, I bought a 9 and it is just right. There is some velcro on the side so you can make the top a little tighter if need be and I did. I love them and right after I finish writing this I am ordering another pair...

I love the Orthaheel Sandals, so I thought I would give the slippers a try. They are wonderful providing great arch support, a sturdy bottom sole, and you can adjust the width with the Velcro strap. They are the best slippers ever!

This slipper is like walking on a cloud with arch support beyond expectation. The second this Cinderella slipper went on my foot, I was in HEAVEN.. Seriously-- I've tried the Best of the Best.. Orthaheel by far exceeds all of them. I loved them so much that I ordered three more pairs in different styles immediately! Thank you Zappos for very fast delivery, courteous service beyond Excellent and for carrying this wonderful Product.

This slipper has a very high arch and the footbed has a firm feel. The fit can be adjusted due to the velcro tab. This feature keeps the slipper snug and the foot in place. I gave it four stars for comfort because the footbed has so little cushion. However, if that is what you are looking for then this slipper should work fine.

I bought these slippers a month ago because the doctor diagnosed me with morton's neuroma and previously with plantar faciitis. While I initially bought custom orthotics for my shoes, which helped to relieve the plantar faciitis, the morton's neuroma only seemed to get worse. I tried the Foot Smart gel pads but they didn't seem to provide enough support since, while soft, they didn't provide enough protection from the hard floor on my toes. Since I don't wear shoes at home (I like to relax and shoes don't make me feel relaxed!), I decided to take another approach by buying some relaxing slippers with arch support (the Gemma by Orthaheel) and it was the best idea ever. I wanted to wait to write until I had some experience with these slippers and I have nothing but great things to say. They are cute, comfortable, and have an adjustable strap to ensure the slippers don't fall off when you're walking around. Just a note, they have a firm foot pad (not plush), which is what you want if you have bad feet (you need the arch support). The heel cup is also deep, which makes for more definite arch support. Lastly, it's got hard soles so if you wanted (or needed), you could walk outside. Overall, a great buy and totally worth the money! Just a note, these tend to run large so order a size smaller.
