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!

These are not your mother's slippers! That being said, I really like them. They support my feet like a good orthotic. Felt too stiff the first day, but they get softer and more flexible as I wear them...they are very warm and will be great for winter. For me, these are keepers.

Amazing slippers. Well worth the money. I have plantar fasciitis and when I wear these I don't feel any pain. I've already walked out of the house 4 times forgetting I had them on due to comfort and no foot pain. Wish I could wear them to work. First things I slip on in the morning and last things off when heading to bed.

There aren't any of the Vionic footwear that is not comfortable, but these are fabulous. So comfortable and if you suffer from plantar fascitis since they have a built in arch support will find them very comfortable. Fit my feet perfectly.

This is my third pair of terry mules. They are so comfortable and cozy. I purchased my first pair several years ago when I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. Orthaheel was recommended by my podiatrist. My plantar fasciitis cleared up quickly and never came back. I attribute that to wearing the slippers and not going barefoot around the house (wood floors) along with wearing Orthaheel sandals.

I had a somewhat mild case of plantar fasciitis that, even mild, was constantly nagging at me. I have wood and stone floors throughout my entire house and it was really uncomfortable to walk around barefoot. I found these slippers and decided to try them ot based on the reviews. I was not disappointed! Wearing these and faithfully doing the stretching exercises helped get rid of my plantar fasciitis really quickly. I could tell a big difference if I tried to go barefoot again before I was fully healed. Slippers on-no pain, no slippers on-pain again. Now my plantar fasciitis is gone but I still love wearing these slippers sound the house because they're so comfortable. I wear a size 9 and they were true to size for me.

I have chronic peroneal tendonitis, which means I can never go barefoot or wear flats. It is nearly impossible to find warm slippers with a bit of a heel. Thankfully I found these -- and they even have arch support! I wish they made these in a full or bootie style, rather than just a mule, but I'll take what I can get at this point. The other slippers in this brand are flats. It took about four hours of wearing them to get used to the arch, but I'm used to wearing orthotics already so I probably had a head start there. At first the arch felt too hard, but after the first day they feel great! And so far they're warm enough. Since they're adjustable, I'll be able to wear socks with them come winter. I normally wear a 9.5D in sneakers, and the 9 in this style fits great. Very happy!

I have bunions and use orthotics. My podiatrist recommended this brand for slippers and other shoes that would not take orthotics because of style. I bought two pair of these slippers. These felt a little odd when I first put them on but were my favorite slippers after a few minutes. I bought a size 6...thought I would wear my normal 7, but there was too much room sticking out from the heel with the 7. Would recommend these...very comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naot - solid support, removeable footbed to replace with orthotics

Cannot wash slipper! These slippers are wonderful, but learned they are not Washable. Slippers are worn every single day. It's unthinkable to make them so they cannot be thoroughly washed! Why?

I ordered this slipper in the mint/white polka dots (in terry, so cute!) and I absolutely love them! They have a deep heel cup and supportive arch, which is very comfortable especially for those who have bad feet. These slippers are wide enough for my foot to spread out without causing further irritation to my issues and they. I practically live in these when I'm not wearing shoes and they've lasted me a solid two years before the foot bed lining starting to roll back but they are in good shape otherwise. Because my slippers are well loved, I decided to buy myself another pair and since they don't have the mint/white ones, I tried the zebra slippers. I didn't realize that the zebra slippers weren't terry cloth so when I tried them on, the top lip of the slipper dug into the top of my foot and it's too painful to wear them. These are going back and I will only buy the ones made of terry, which have a little bit of give when you wear them.

I bought these on the recommendation of my niece and I absolutely can't stop raving about them. They are unbelievably comfortable and the Velcro sides adjusted down to accommodate my narrow (AA) feet. They have heavenly arch support and are nice & warm & snuggly. Yes, they are expensive and worth every penny. Especially when you consider how much time is spent in them.
