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!

Very comfortable and supportive slipper. It fits well, stays on my foot and I really appreciate the good arch support. Great for all around the house and running outside to get the newspaper, take out the trash, etc. It's definitely not the prettiest slipper out there, the few color/design options are less than exciting, so you just have to get over the lack of color choices. If you like Vionic's other shoes you'll like this slipper.

Fantastic slipper!! Love it, so comfortable!! I have plantar fasciitis and they make all the difference in the word, keeping me from having more issues with the heel problems. My physician said in order to not have heel spurs/ fasciitis, the secret is in the arch support, not so much the heel. Fabulous arch support with the slippers!!

My first Vionic purchase. I wanted to see if they would relieve heel pain. I noticed a change quickly. Each morning when my feet hit the floor, there is less heel pain. I wear the slippers while I'm in the house all day. Walking on hard surfaces barefoot or in plain slippers was ruining my feet! I'm looking into a pair of Vionic sandals, too.

As with most Vionic and the previous Orthaheel shoes, they are clunky. The Velcro closure is adjustable but not enough to keep the slipper on my foot and I need to wear socks to help them stay on. I purchased these to help with significant heel pain. They are clunky, they are too wide and they are way too warm in summertime weather BUT they are the most comfortable slippers I have ever owned. When I get up in the morning, they are right by my bed so that I don't take even one step without the slippers. It's like putting your feet into marshmallow fluff! I always wear a medium width shoe but I wish Vionic would make these slippers and their other shoes available in a narrow width. Their narrow would most certainly be everyone else's medium. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives for these slippers.

Comfortable and true to size. Sometimes I buy my slippers a bit larger, but after reading other reviews, I bought exactly my size and they are a perfect fit. They are an orthotic, which means they have a bulge that supports your instep, which is just what I need since I have plantar fasciitis. I will buy them again.

I have these slippers in two different colors and thought that these were cute in the leopard print. I have plantar fasciitis and these slippers are wonderful for that condition. I do not wear any other slippers but the Gemma by Vionic. Although they are a B width they are quite wide as they fit me well and I usually wear a WW in a shoe. This is a well made and superior slipper.

I'm waiting for more to arrive in stock. I love these slippers, because I have a very high arch. They give support, so high-arch feet don't hurt like they do with a flat surface for your feet. You can adjust them for looser or tighter fit with the velcro tab across the top of the slipper. They are stiff at first. You have to break them in a little. If you don't have a high arch, these aren't the slippers for you.

Brands I'd also recommend: Vionic and Aetrix sandals have high-arch support.

I have arthritis in my feet and Dr. recommended I wear these at home. I was resistant, because I love being barefoot, but in a few days, my feet hurt less and they're comfortable! Runs a little wide, but that's good for my feet. Well worth the money.

I have a wide foot, and normally order a C or D width. In this case, I ordered "normal" and, yes, they do run wide. I just got them today, so I don't know if the arch support is sufficient or not, yet (I also have high arches)!

I have owned these slippers for three years...they are just now starting to show some wear. The sole of the slipper shows no wear and tear! I cannot be in my house without having my slippers on. They are a must when doing housework and just lounging. They break in and conform to your foot over time. I have washed them as well and held up greatly. I even take them with me if we are going over to friends or family to hang out for the day...they are that comfortable! Don't hesitate. You will love them and become a repeat customer like myself.
