I made the mistake of not wearing my orthotics and ruined my arch again. My doctor said this was a good brand. Not loving these slippers. Arch support is high, but foot slips around a lot when you walk. Love the Orthaheel sandal. I will buy more of those for around the house.

Soft and warm feeling with excellent arch support but the soft terry material gave no support to keep your foot on the footbed; had to send it back.

No problem with the foot bed, but I have a narrow foot and high arch. There is not much padding on part that goes over the instep and it rubs the boney area there. Back they go.

I was looking for a slipper to wear around the house with more support than my beloved Uggs. Going back to my Uggs. Although these felt good on my feet, my feet sweated in them. The sheepskin in Uggs controls that better. I returned these and ordered my Uggs.

I don't understand why there were so many glowing reviews. These slippers were not comfortable. They are 'clunky' and stiff. When I first put them on they did not feel good but followed the recommendation to wear them for a few hours over a couple of days to get used to them. It didn't help. They were as uncomfortable the second day as they were the first. Beware!

Disappointed by the poor quality of the shoes for the price I paid. Ortha is just a ploy to make consumer think they are orthotically correct, which they are not; they actually hurt as the so called support is rigid. Look of the shoe is also ugly.

These shoes are just not comfortable. They are rigid and hard...not at all what I want when I come home at the end of the day. I love their flip flops which I wear every day all summer long.

After reading all the good reviews I decided to order these slippers. As soon as they arrived I opened the box and put them on. Within 30 seconds I removed them and placed them back in the box to return them. I cannot believe how quickly my toes started to hurt. While they do have good arch support these slippers are much too hard for me to wear.

This is my second pair of Orthaheel slippers and I have to say that I am very disappointed in this pair. They are comfortable but have fallen apart after only 2 weeks! The lining has completely come off at the toes on both slippers and the rest of the slipper is leaving balls of fuzz over my clothes. I only wear them in the house so I was expecting to get a little more wear from them!

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.

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.

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 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.
