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 slippers are awesome! Not only did they have my size, 5, but they fit perfectly. The arch supports my feet making them very comfortable. I was surprised at how nice and warm they are for a mule style slipper which is great in the winter. I love them!

I love these. I am on my feet a lot during the day so I need slippers with support. These are cute and really comfortable. Some reviewers reported that the instep was too high for them and I can understand why - it is high. But for me, it is perfect and gives me great support. I will buy another pair for sure.

These won! I ordered these and a pair of Giesswein at the same time because both brands have great ratings. It actually took me 2 months but I finally decided that these were significantly more comfortable. I don't have plantar fasciitis but the arch support makes it so comfortable. At first these seem too heavy as the Giessweins were so much lighter but after wearing both for 2 months - you don't notice the weight anymore and these make the soles of you feet feel good! Highly recommended and it won in a head to head go with Giesswein slippers.

Very happy with this slipper. I have high arches and need a shoe for down time around the house without my orthotics. This slipper is a lifesaver! Good arch support and comfort. Orthaheel was recommended by my podiatrist for times that I just can't wear my orthotics 24/7 Excellent quality.

Fit is exact and the adjustable velcro closure is perfect if you want to also wear a light pair of socks. I wear orthotics and find the arch support almost exactly the same - so wonderful to have something casual for around the house, without wearing shoes with orthotics in them. Highly recommend!

I ordered these slippers for two reasons. First, they offered good arch support for those days when I get to stay in the house all day long. Secondly, the offered a good sole that could withstand those forays out into the somewhat wet outdoors for a quick trip to the bird feeder, etc. They met my expectations and I was pleasantly surprised by the Velcro adjustment for the instep. A nice factor for personal comfort.

I love these slippers! I have bought several Orthoheel shoes and noticed when they went to the Vionic style they made the medium width too narrow and my toes would hang over the front in sandals and their closed in shoes don't have a very round toe box but these slippers seem much more true to size, no cramped toes and great arch support.

Since I was very happy with the Vionic inserts I bought for my shoes, I wanted the same support in slippers to wear at home. Even though I usually wear a wide or extra wide, these slippers fit well.

These are absolutely the most comfortable slippers that I have ever owned. I have several more pairs of Vionic slippers but these are my favorite. Because of my flat feet and heel problems I cannot wear any other shoes but the Vionic Orthoheel shoes. I wish that these slippers came in more colors.

I ordered the black Gemma Mule Slipper on a Saturday night and received them Monday morning! What great service from Zappos. I'm very pleased with my slippers. I was familiar with the fact that the Vionic/Orthaheel footwear runs large, so I followed the fit tips and ordered a size 8. I normally wear a size 8-1/2 to 9 in other brands, depending on the style. I bought these because I have developed achilles tendonitis and needed something to wear around the house that would give me plenty of arch support. These slippers really make a huge difference in my pain level. They're not beautiful and the footbed is not soft and cushy; but the support is incredible. They look really wide but inside they fit my foot beautifully. They're easy to just slip on and I can even wear them outside if I wish. They're well worth the money, in my opinion and my feet will be well-supported and warm this winter. Many thanks to Vionic and Zappos!
