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 take some getting used to. They have a high arch support. It reminded me of when I got my orthotics, and the doctor said to wear them only a couple of hours the first few days to get used to them. Same with these. But they are worth it. They help you walk more correctly and have aided in my aching back. I wear an 8½ in shoes that I wear with socks. I wear a 39 in these, and I wear socks (winter)with them. They are expensive, but they are not just slippers, they are corrective shoes, too. Oh, and I have a bunion, and they are wide enough to allow me to wear them in comfort.

I am having plantar/tarsal fasciitis problems, so it was suggested I wear shoes in the house. My mom trained us to take our shoes off at the door, and we recently got new carpet, so I am hesitant to wear shoes in the house but want to improve my discomfort. I tried some of Vionic's flip-flops as well, but they are just too wide (excess amount of strap length). This slipper has Velcro to adjust the width of the slipper, but the slipper is so wide that I have to pull the Velcro as far as possible--there is very little Velcro left to hook onto the other piece and about 3/4" of the tab hangs on the floor. I am hoping that there will be enough Velcro touching to stay closed/attached to make these narrow enough so my feet don't fall out. Of course these are not soft, plush, and fluffy like I'd like a slipper to be since the sole is basically an orthotic. But, the arch support is terrific and these should allow me to wear in the house and not track in dirt, chemicals, and germs from my regular outside shoes. I will keep these. I only wish they were more narrow on their own, and I was not crazy about the color selection. The price is higher than I'd have liked to pay for a slipper, but they are more comfortable than wearing a new pair of shoes.

I ordered a pair of the Vionic slippers for my mom, who recently had knee surgery, and wanted a pair of house slippers, but needed cushioning and arch support (which slippers usually never have). These mule slippers are wonderful. I gave them a try while visiting, and am ordering a pair for myself!

This is the second pair of this exact slipper I have purchased as a gift for my daughter. She has plantar fasciitis and keeps one pair at home and one at work for some well deserved relief from the pain.

Bought these for my mother since she walks around all day in slippers. She has suffered in the past from plantar fasciitis and was worried it would reappear walking in her thin slippers on a hard tile floor. She loves these slippers and says that they are more comfortable and supportive than any of her other slippers and even shoes! I would highly recommend. I just wish they had replaceable inserts.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these slippers. Got these slippers in tan a year ago. I was concerned the color would show dirt, and they do. Finally decided to wash them by hand by spraying some cleaner on them, scrubbed w/brush, rinsed, then dry on furnace register. After they dried I brushed nap and THEY LOOK LIKE THE DAY THEY CAME OUT OF THE BOX!! Not only do they wash great, they have great arch support and very warm. So glad the Zappos rep recommended 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.
